Guardians of the Galaxy 2 finds the gang from the first film hired by aliens called the Sovereign to protect important merchandise.

After the Guardians complete their contract, it comes to light that the thieving Rocket Raccoon has betrayed the Sovereign. But while they attempt to escape, Quill discovers something about his parentage.

This is a lot to juggle but the various threads are woven together well. The audience won’t feel lost or wonder what one plot has to do with the other. 

Let me just say right off the bat: Baby Groot absolutely steals the show. He danced, he hopped, he waved his way into everyone’s heart. I could not believe how cute he was. I almost cried a few times.

The special effects were amazing throughout. Not once did I think to myself, “Dang, that looks kind of fake.” There’s a part where Rocket and Groot are making jumps through space, and their faces become all distorted. Extremely silly, yes, but I found it hilarious.

One thing I didn’t enjoy was the way the filmmakers tried to force emotional scenes into the movie. There were a few times when they tried to make the audience shed a tear. But it just didn’t click and felt out of place.

Last but not least, keep an eye out for the cameos. I don’t want spoil anything, but one of them quacked me up pretty good.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is pretty spectacular. I’d definitely check it out.
