After Fast and Furious 8 had released last week to quite positive reactions and good box office response, the next big Hollywood blockbuster to hit us would be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. The sequel to the 2014 superhero intergalactic space flick brings back the core characters of Star-Lord aka Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot, okay Baby Groot, for more fun and action in space. But the team base of Guardians has now increased with Yondu, Nebula and a new character Mantis also joining them, as Peter finds his father. Or does he? Like the first movie, even the sequel is directed by James Gunn.
Marvel Studios showed the movie to a section of the press a couple of days back, though the reviews are kept under an embargo till April 24, the week the movie will get released in UK and certain other parts of the world. However that has not stopped most of the reviewers from showing their awe and love for the sequel on Twitter. Special mentions have been given to Groot, Drax and some special appearances, and of course director James Gunn for making another enjoyable superhero movie.
Here are 10 such reactions…
Don’t think I’ve heard so much laughter at a press screening. People seemed to really be digging Guardians Vol. 2. Can’t say more (yet)

Damn. I loved Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. @JamesGunn is a hero and surprise faces steal the show.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2. is very fun. Takes the EMPIRE “split up your characters” strategy. Drax is a hoot. Baby Groot steals the show

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is funnier than the original, a ton of surprises, and an unexpected emotional profoundness. I am Groot.

I say without hyperbole: #GotGVol2 is MCU at its very best. Grand adventure with intimate stakes. Uses every damn color in the crayon box.
