GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 (M)

ADRIFT IN NOT-SO-DEEP SPACE, US, 137 MIN

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - FLICKS -

A sci-fi ad­ven­ture block­buster def­i­nitely big­ger in scope than its smash-hit pre­de­ces­sor, but a lit­tle less brash, and a lot more bloated than be­fore. This time, the story is cen­tred on un­mask­ing the true parent­age of Guardians spear­head Peter “Star Lord” Quill (Christo­pher Pratt). The movie ac­tu­ally spills the beans on this mys­tery quite early, clear­ing the way for the Guardians to get into the old-school ban­ter and deep-space scrapes for which they are renowned. Vivid char­ac­ters such as alien Gamora (Zoe Sal­dana), in­ter­ga­lac­tic strong­man Drax (Dave Bautista) and the hy­per-adorable tree trun­k­let Baby Groot (the voice of Vin Diesel) re­main ap­peal­ing figures, purely on the strength of how they em­body the reck­less rap­port of the Guardians. Co-stars Kurt Rus­sell, El­iz­a­beth De­bicki.
