Chris Pratt has always had a soft spot in my 'television heart' after his incredibly hilarious mannerisms in Amy Poehler Parks & Recreation. All the same, director James Gunn had me in tears of giggles with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Obviously having a second name like Gunn, I can see why James' talents were so high. He did a brilliant job directing this one. Impeccable music and humour throughout. The storyline was emotional, which I found surprising, as I sometimes find it harder to get engrossed in characters for Sci Fi or futuristic genres. The age range of characters was something I found as a viewer quite comforting. Groot balances out the boisterous themes and rivalry between Bradley Cooper and Chris Pratt. Watching the movie after the recent Avengers, I had a slight tear in eyes for the unbeknown. Never the less, the film's harsh and realistic humour for these 'alien' life beings was a light hearted comedy to warm anyone for a weekend watch. Again seeing female lead roles such as Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff and Karen Gillan was comforting and rewarding, in such a large casted super hero Marvel.
I am a big believer in Kurt Russell however, even though he resembled Chris well as his father, I didn't feel his character and plot worked for this movie. His un threatening nature wasn't one to worry me about the other characters destiny.
One to keep in the back burner for a rainy day. It's got me very excited for the release of the 3rd movie in 2021. Until then I will have to await Drax the Destroyer wonderful one liners.
