"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is a film set in the "Marvel Cinematic Franchise" (MCF). It takes place after the events of "Guardians of the Galaxy" (retroactively retitled
"Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 Collectors Edition") and stars Chris Pratt as Starperson. All your favorites are back as well: Uhura from the new, glossy Star Trek, that blue machine lady from Doctor Who (Seriously, dudes. You couldn't come up with a more subtle reference to the Tardis?), Yandu, Stars Hollow's own Kirk, that wrestler dude, Baby Tree, and trash panda are all back to give you the warm and fuzzies. Newly part of the gang are Kurt Russell as [redacted], and Sylvester Stallone [redacted] a Ravager.
At its core it's a film about shitty dads in space; thanks Marvel Studios for saving me a couple of bucks on a real therapist. It's loud and colorful and with lots of heart and if you enjoyed the first one, you will enjoy this one. More dick jokes, too. Like, a lot of dick jokes. If that's not your cup of tea, you've probably only seen one James Gunn film.
Stay until the end to see the 18 after-credit scenes and get a tiny glimpse of [Redacted] Goldblum dancing. He will also star in the upcoming Thor: Rock'n'Roll.
