Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

  Agent 54 here again.  It was movie day for the gang and I again and despite some whining and moaning we saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 instead of Chips.  As usual, we went to the pool afterward to voice our opinions.  Here’s our review:

Agent 54:  Well, leading off again, I have to say that despite how far-fetched the story and characters are, I really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.  

Shamu:  Far-fetched?  Man, you know what’s far-fetched?  You thinking anyone believes you can take us all to the movies, comfortably, in that stupid little car you got.

Agent 54:  What?  You never complain on the way to the theater. 

Shamu:  Yeah, well I ain’t dumb.  I don’t want you to kick me out half way there.  I ain’t walkin to the movies.

Rocket Raccoon 
Agent 54:  Whatever!  Getting back to the movie, it was fun and rollicking space adventure with great scenery, great characters and great music.

Flipper:  Oh yeah, you know I liked Gamora.  I dig those red high-lights in her dark hair against her green skin.  Yowsa!

Charlie Tuna:  Easy there Flip, have a little class.  Remember, this is a family show.  Now the character I liked the best was Ego who was played by Kurt Russell.  That dude had class, until he told of his grand plan to remake the Universe and kill everybody.  That wasn’t cool.

Nemo:  You guys didn’t even mention the real star of the show.  Baby Groot is as cute as me.  I loved watching him dance to the 1980s Rock-n-Roll while the rest of the group was fighting the ugly monster in the beginning.  Baby Groot is the coolest.

Agent 54:  Yeah, Baby Groot stole the show at times.  Of course my favorite character,
Yondu
Yondu who was played by Michael Rooker got killed in the end.  I always enjoyed Rooker as an actor and the rogue character of Quill’s stepdad and Captain of a ship of Ravagers was very cool.

Flipper:  Cool?  What?  Do you remember that guy killed his whole crew with that magic arrow that he controlled by whistling.  Those guys were his buddies and he wiped them all out.

Shamu:  Flip!  They had a mutiny against him and took over his ship.  What the heck would you do?  Those bums got what they deserved.

Agent 54:  Yeah, a mutiny about a vehicle, like when someone criticizes the driver and the car they’re riding all over the place in.

Shamu:  Okay “Captain”.  Man, you need to get over yourself.

Nemo:  I like Agent 54’s car.

Shamu:  Man, you so small you can fit in the glove box with room to spare.  Anyway, I want to say, before I get kicked out of the pool for mutiny by “Captain” Agent 54, I loved the movie.  I loved all the action and adventure and the jokes and Rocket, played by Bradley Cooper, is my guy.  That high-tech genius does and says what he wants and he don’t care.

Gamora
Flipper:  I like Drax the Destroyer, played by Dave Bautista too.  That guy is hilarious without even trying to be funny.  When he told that beautiful new girl, Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff that she was ugly, that just cracked me up.

Agent 54:  I think that’s what really works with these two Guardians of the Galaxy movies.  There is someone or something the everyone can identify with.  There’s a character for everyone to pick as their favorite.  I like the way they balance the bad guys and side characters out too.  You get Ego who is a nearly undefeatable God-like villain versus the egotistic and yet goofy Sovereigns and then the divided Ravagers sects.  Truly a diverse group as you would imagine the Universe really is.

Charlie Tuna:  Gee, that was a deep and almost scientific analysis of the move, and BOOORING!  

Shamu:  Nerd alert!

Flipper:  Nerd alert!

Drax The Destroyer
Agent 54:  Aw, don’t start that crap again.   Just give me your Starfish.

Shamu:  5 Starfish, I dug it.

Flipper:  5 Starfish all day.

Nemo:  5 Starfish for Baby Groot.  Hooray!

Charlie Tuna:  4 Starfish.  I don’t think they had to kill that Classy Ego guy.  Couldn’t they try talkin to the guy, maybe a little psycho-therapy?

Agent 54:  Uh, yeah, I guess.  I give it 5 Starfish too and I can’t wait to see the next one and next time Shamu, you can take the bus to the theater.


Shamu:  Yeah, whatever “Captain” Agent 54.

  8. A little sad though that Baby Groot was all sulky, gaming teen in the end. But I guess good things mustn't last.

  11. My boys went to see this and I have to say my youngest son came home... well.. angry. He was so mad at the whole basis of the plot and starlord's dad. He did admit that baby groot was adorable though.

    1. Interesting reaction. I was disappointed that my favorite character died in the end.

  12. We are Groot!

    ~~~

    I am a massive... massive fan of MCU. In fact, it's fair to say that I am a lifelong Marvel fan (and given that I am in my mid-50s, that's a long time!), and I was beyond excited when I heard that the first GoG was being made. It remains one of my all-time favourite films - I have seen it so many times (in four different countries, no less!), I suspect I know everyone's lines by heart!

    I was so looking forward to GoG2 as well, and I wasn't in any way disappointed. I loved that Baby Groot was doing the same dance as Star-Lord did at the start of GoG; I loved all the in-jokes, the references, the nods to other parts of MCU.

    And I cried my eyes out at Yondu's funeral. No one warned me that I'd need hankies... fortunately I had a pack in my handbag!

    As for Xardu Hasselfrau - what can I say? That man is such a trooper!

    Really enjoyed your review, Agent - keep up the great work!

  17. Another fun post, Agent 54. I guess I will check it out when it is available for home viewing. My son talks 24-7 (yes, including in his sleep), not subjecting other theater goers to that. ;)

  19. What a great and hilarious review. My daughter and I did a version of this for a Harlequin Love Inspired book one time for my blog. It was quite fun to do. Neither of us have seen any of the Guardian of the Galaxy movies YET in spite of the fact that my daughter is a huge fan of Marvel. Maybe soon. Keep the laughter coming! A good belly laugh is worth so much. #GetSocial2017
