A Rocket Powered Movie
I am finally getting around to reviewing the latest installment of Guardians.
The first movie blew me away and managed to make my annual Top Ten List of Superhero Movies.
Guardians was refreshing, original, a great plot and superior special effects.
Sadly Guardians vol 2 did not live up to the first film. That is not necessarily bad. Follow up films to classics have a tough act to follow.
The movie makers rightly gave fan favorite Rocket lots of screen time. But over all there were too many plots and sub-plots involving the many different characters. The first film was cleaner and funnier.
Guardians 2 may take multiple viewings to get a better feel for its place in the Superhero World. Certainly the special effects were off the charts good.
The movie works if you are just looking for a fun popcorn flick to take your mind off the evils of the outside world.
