In this second Guardians of the Galaxy film, Star Lord/Peter (Chris Pratt) and his friends have built up a reputation for protecting space. They have been chosen to protect the batteries of a race called the Sovereigns, led by their leader Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) and in exchange they are given Nebula (Karen Gillan). However, Rocket (Bradley Cooper) decides to steal a few batteries, which causes the Sovereigns to hire Yondu to find the Guardians so they can have their revenge. They are rescued by Ego (Kurt Russell) who reveals that he is Peter’s father.
This film isn’t quite as good as the original but it is so much fun! The story is fairly entertaining but the film’s strengths are its great characters and the dynamics between them, and there’s a fantastic combination of humour and action. As with the original, the soundtrack is great, and the film is worth seeing if only for adorable Baby Groot!
