Crosspost from Last Film thread:
Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 6/10
Less "more of the same" and more "more of the same." The first film was an action romp with witty dialogue, funny moments and a few well placed licensed songs. 8/10, deffo in Marvel's top 2. The second film took these aspects, decided more was better than better and made a film that was nothing but. There's a licensed song every 5 minutes, the dialogue is entirely jokes (of which only a tiny fraction land) and every moment is played for laughs. There were a few great scenes (all in the trailer) a few good jokes ("I'm Mary Poppins y'all!") and the story was interesting once it got going, but there was too much filler, too much CGI and too many 80s pop-classics.
