Elizabeth Debicki will return in next Guardians sequel

Elizabeth Debicki will return in next Guardians sequel

The family aspect of the characters and their tribulations are the real focus of the movie and that lends a darker and perhaps even a more sinister underplay which in turn drags down the humor level of some of the scenes nearly to the extreme of black comedy.

His leading stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Dave Bautista, who will feature in "Avengers: Infinity War", are all expected to return for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3".

If you are a huge Marvel fan I would say it's worth a ticket, but if you're anything but, waiting to rent it with a group of friends will suffice. But Rocket double-crosses the Sovereign, and soon the team is on the run from an imperial fleet. The Sovereigns nearly destroy the team and cause them to crash land on a distant planet until they are saved by Ego, played by Kurt Russell, who is later revealed to be Quill's father. Spoiler ... Yondu dies (Michael Rooker). When Yondu argues with Stakar Ogord (Sylvester Stallone), it becomes clear that Yondu's crew has been groaned about for decades. But a contract put on the Guardians by the Sovereign may be his ticket back to glory. Most of the film's funniest parts were used in the ads and the barrage of cameos (Rob Lowe, Kirsten Bell, Rob Riggle and Raquel Welch, to name a few) only serve to pad the film to an nearly two hour running time - about 30 minutes more than it really needs. He's a space pirate who kidnapped a child and was a less-than-doting father figure. Rocket gets a little sappy. And of course Ego needs to make up for being absent for Quill's whole life.

An example of the additional powers would be the Time Stone.

At the end of the day, however, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is nothing more than a big-time summer blockbuster looking to entertain.

Oh, I'm letting you know? Drax's laugh is the glue that holds the first half of the movie together. Although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 does not quite live up to the original, it comes pretty close. I work because I love the relationships I have with my collaborators. But otherwise there's nothing here to write home about. The humor, which seemed so crisp and spontaneous in the first movie, now feels scripted and forced. The villain is just flat-out very bad. It is not just Quill's daddy issues, either; Gamora and Karen Gillan's Nebula get in some nice sisterly bonding during the fisticuffs. So, as sure as space is infinite and contains many fans of comic-book movies, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has completed its orbit through Marvel's and Disney's executive offices and arrived here on Earth.

Four out of five stars. It's not the happiest of ideas, but it's canon: according to ComicBook, the 2008 iteration of "Guardians of the Galaxy" saw the team splitting up for a substantial amount of time after Peter Quill/Star-Lord utilised Mantis' abilities to guide their thoughts towards the same conclusion. The film is rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language, and brief suggestive content.
