Review: Guardians of the Galaxy 2

May 03, 2017 1 min read

When the first Guardians of the Galaxy hit, I'm not sure any of us we're really prepared for it being as fantastic as it was. We weren't prepared for a team of mostly unknown superheroes being turned into one of Marvel's most popular franchises. We weren't prepared for it inspiring an entire Telltale game. We definitely weren't prepared for one of the greatest soundtracks ever made. The point being: there weren't really any expectations resting on the first film.

That's changed a whole lot. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has a ton to live up to not only because the first one did so well, but because it has to expand on its characters and introduce a broader story line for the confirmed third film. That's a tall task, and one of the reasons sequels so often fail. Is Vol. 2 an epic mix tape or that cassette you pulled out of an old box that made you realize you had terrible taste in music when you were 12?
