Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was really, really good. Top notch special effects, great comedic writing and acting and they definitely took the 'do it again, but bigger' approach for the action, throwing the kitchen sink in there which worked -- most of the time. It's not without its problems though. While it's overall funnier than the original, and carries more emotional weight than the original, it's simply just not as good as the original. While the action is always bigger in Vol 2, it isn't always better, and the plot itself just isn't as good as the origin story, even with a slightly more interesting (though predictable) villain. The gold villains were uninteresting and unexciting, both visually and personality wise. The biggest failing of GOTG Vol 2 however is the extremely disappointing and completely inferior 'Vol 2' soundtrack. I'm still in shock by how weak the soundtrack was in this film, it really stuck out and really brought the movie down, whereas the soundtrack did the opposite in at least a few situations in the first movie. All in all though, I was very entertained, and if it wasn't for the huge letdown of a soundtrack, this would be an easy 8. Perhaps the songs will grow on me upon repeat viewings and it'll get up there anyways (although it should be noted that the first movie's never had to do that). Still, highly recommended.
