Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Olivia Brown, Writer

James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1., has now released a second volume to the series that can now be seen in theaters.  The first volume released in 2015, was such a big hit that the audience is ready for round number two.

Main character Peter Quill, played by Christ Pratt, and his guardians are headed for another mission in their galaxy. When the space items they were sent to protect are found stolen, they must search for them and find the real reason of why they went missing. Through their journey of in the movie, the truth about many of the characters are brought to light.

The Marvel hit has an extremely significant playlist that truly enhances the movie in itself. With music from Fleetwood Mac and the Electric Light Orchestra, the music and sound effects fit the scenes perfectly.

The cast selection was extremely important due to the fact that the first movie was so popular. It was essential to the fans that the second movie followed through from the first one. One of the major characters Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana, plays the green alien who is the sidekick to Peter Quill. The chemistry between the two actors is portrayed extremely well.

The movie hit the box office last weekend and made over $500 million dollars worldwide. “The movie will zoom past Logan ($225m) and Fate of the Furious (around $213m after Sunday) to become the year’s second-biggest domestic earner behind Beauty and the Beast ($488m-and-counting.)”

The movie is classified as a Science Fiction/Action movie and is rated PG-13. The movie can be seen by children; however, it may not be suitable for children who are scared easily.

Although many reviewers are claiming that the first volume is better than the second, this is definitely a must see movie if you are into action movies.
