Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review
Recently Marvel released their latest movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was another crazy Marvel filled adventure. This is my PewPewCat Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review.
This time, we find our favorite Guardians of the Galaxy hired by a powerful alien race called the Sovereign to protect very expensive batteries from another alien who has come to eat the batteries. They complete the mission, and get the reward of a captured Nebula. However Rocket being the thieving raccoon he is takes the batteries they were hired to protect.
Thus, when the group leaves they are hunted down by the Sovereign’s fleet that are drone ships controlled by those back on the Sovereign home world. Due to a power struggle between Rocket and Peter, the ship gets badly damaged. Luckily they are saved by a strange man.
The guardians crash onto a planet, and are found by the strange man who saved them. He claims to be Peter’s father and convinces Peter, Gamora and Drax to come with him. Rocket is left behind to watch over tiny Groot and the angry Nebula, to fix the ship.
All during this, Yondu is feeling the repercussions of being hired by Peter’s father so long ago. He has been shamed by the rest of the ravagers. However, he’s hired by the Sovereign to find the Guardians of the Galaxy and bring them to the Sovereign. Yondu accepts.
Yet when Yondu finds Rocket, a mutiny happens and Nebula is able to get away. Will Yondu get his ship back under control? What will Nebula do now? Is this strange man really Peter’s father? What does he want? I won’t spoil too much here. However, that’s the jist of what happens.
The Feels *SPOILERS*
There are spoilers below. You have been warned.
This movie was pretty entertaining throughout the entire film. Baby Groot was adorable. He was irrational like a child, but still was able to save the day and be absolutely adorable.
Kurt Russell as Ego, Peter’s father was pretty amazing even though I’m used to him being the hero and not the villain. I don’t know the true story behind Peter Quill, but this one seemed to work out pretty well. What broke my heart the most with this story was the fact that Ego told Peter that the brain tumor that killed Peter’s mother was put there by him, then broke Peter’s walkman. Peter’s entire world was all destroyed by one man, who wanted to take over the universe. Pretty good villain.
Another part that got to me, was the fact that Nebula went after Gamora wanting revenge for every time Gamora won a fight. It wasn’t because Thanos replaced a piece of her body every time Nebula lost with machinery. It was because Gamora wanted to win when all that Nebula wanted was a sister. That made me tear up. Luckily, they were able to settle their differences and became family once again. Now, Nebula wants revenge on Thanos. Infinity War! But Karen Gillan once again was amazing at Nebula.
But what hurt the most, was Yondu sacrificing himself for Peter. Yondu knew he screwed up, and knew he did. But, throughout his time with Peter, he had treated Peter as his own son and in the end Peter realized that Yondu was pretty much his father. Luckily, Yondu was forgiven by the Ravagers and was given a proper funeral. It was beautiful. However after all of that, the Sovereign still wants revenge on the Guardians and created a thing called Adam to help them with it. Maybe. I don’t know.
Either way, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 made you laugh and cry all in 2 hours. It was a fantastic addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I can’t wait for the next one to come out.
