Summer has come and the heat is INTENSE! There’s nothing better than to just get out of the house, hang out at your nearby mall, and maybe even catch a movie while you’re at it. If that’s your plan, then you’re in luck because the hottest and most highly anticipated film for the summer just dropped and is showing in cinemas nationwide by the time you read this. That’s right folks, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is now showing at your favorite theaters and if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, chances are you’re not going to get to watch the film right away since everybody is in line to be the first to get a glimpse of Star Lord and the gang as they save the galaxy one more time!
Now, we’ve seen the movie already during a special advanced screening and the awesome level is over 9000! If you’re a fan of the first film, or of good films in general, you definitely do not want to miss out on this. We all know that you’re definitely watching this film and because of that, we’ve decided to do a review by hyping you up a bit more! Instead of a full fledged review, here’s 5 reasons why you SHOULD DEFINITELY WATCH the film! Best part about it, it’s spoiler free!
- The Stan Lee Cameo! – You guys, the Stan Lee cameo here is too good! This should come as no surprise and we know that Stan Lee will appear but the manner in which he does appear in this specific film is one to watch out for. We tried uploading an image of it but Rocket blasted it out of the site, he hates spoilers too!
- Everyone not named Star Lord – I personally loved how the other characters got their chance to shine in this film. While we know that Star Lord is still the main draw of the group, the film showed sides of the other characters that were never seen before and it makes for some good character development throughout the film!
- 5 (!!!) post credit scenes! – WHAT THE ****? 5? You read that right, 5 scenes to watch out for after the movie is finished. Some of those are “oh, hey, nice!” type of scenes, really just fillers to show another scene but some of them reveal plot points that will affect how the next movies will play out, and this is what we’re really after, right? If so, then keeping tradition, stay throughout the whole movie, we know it does not need to be said but just in case you forget!
- Awesome Mix Vol. 2 is AWESOMELY AWESOME! – Just when you thought the soundtrack for the first film couldn’t get any better, we get to hear Vol. 2 and these tracks are sure to get you grooving as you traverse the galaxy! With classics such as “The Chain”, “Father and Son”, and “Bring it home to me”, we’re quite certain that this will be the playlist of choice in the next few days, or weeks!
- One step closer to the Infinity Wars! – Apart from each of the individual films in the MCU having its own particular charm to it, we know that at the end of it all, Thanos awaits and the Infinity Wars is an event that no one wants to missed. This film is another stepping stone to that but is in no way is it negligible, all films moving forward will move the needle quite a bit and needless to say, everything is a MUST WATCH!
Overall, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a must watch, and we’re sure you already know that by now. My personal opinion on it is that if you’ve read the comics, then you would most certainly appreciate Vol. 2 more just because Vol. 2 introduces so many new characters and groups. That said, I enjoyed the first film a teeny tiny bit more but that does not dismiss the fact that Vol. 2 is great in it’s own way.
Don’t miss out on the hottest and grooviest movie of the summer as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a sure blockbuster hit, now showing at your favorite cinemas nationwide! Check out a few more screens of the movie below just to get you hyped a bit more!
