    Nonstop Bore!

    'Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2' is as colourful as the original, and possibly, even more. But the colour palette is ridiculously distractive and the execution of the characters is awfully on the back seat. The film is as cheap a fun film as a South Indian action film.
    Some possible finesse here is notwithstanding, and it is, mind it, no original. It's drive is pretty much the same as the rare, dragged parts of the first installment of the series. It is a fat book, but you gain no wisdom from it. The problem with 'Vol. 2' mainly is that it is never solid and is afraid to lift off. It's almost a proof that 'Age of Ultron' is not the only failure of an assembly of these great characters. I am going with 2 out of 5 for the film. It's a crass return for a film series, the first of which was so solid that it became my instant favorite.
    But make no mistake, it does strike you in some bits, and so, it does make you wait for what 'Vol. 3' has in store.

    Capsule Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    If repetitive chase sequences, contrived colorful explosions at the end of every action sequence, and occasionally forced and isolated comedy are the only parameters that you judge a superhero movie in 2017 with, then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 should be a collector's product. There's a lot of references in this film that demands you go back to Vol. 1 and also take a 50-hour pop culture lesson narrated by Stan Lee. The plot associated with Walkman-ambassador leader guardian Quill's parentage is a boring cliché and one that makes you puke, considering there are more grotesque beings and objects in the film. A sheer lack of novelty, the inability to improve the charm in the characters, and reckless usage of CGI majorly affects James Gunn's second major feature film that is gaudier than the film's obnoxious poster. Chris Pratt has begun to slightly annoy and if he maintains a similar air we'll have to turn to DC by the time these guardians create the next volume. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an ordinary superhero film with lots of blabbering using advanced vocabulary and lots of flashes, lasers, flares, and plasma. It also has a gold-obsessed priestess awkwardly trying to get at the guardians for stealing a bunch of her Duracell batteries. Like this, there are many more mindless arcs, but I'm fairly content because Quill was finally introduced to Microsoft Zune, arguably one of the best music players to come out of the technology race. TN.
