Atom User Reviews for Marvel Studios 10th: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 probably couldn’t, and definitely doesn’t, recapture the sweet and singular silliness of the original, though the new edition from Marvel Studios and Disney has its rewards.
Underneath Vol. 2’s sarcastic exterior, Gunn’s script has a big, bleeding heart, pinpointing the characters’ insecurities and emotional scars.
The characters and their relationships are strong and the dialogue is sharp, but the whole thing feels like a minor installment in an ongoing series.
