Vol 2 a fun, chaotic, fab blockbuster
Volume 2 of the Guardians is a rollicking, hilarious and surprisingly emotional blockbusting experience.
familial schmaltz threatens to overwhelm proceedings, there’s always a dated pop reference or scatological gag to leaven the mood.
As before, the Guardians’ bickering, bantering and battle to be top dog (or raccoon) provide many of the highlights, although this time there’s beefed up roles for the boys (and girls) in blue.
Throw in another superb mood-setting soundtrack (featuring everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Cat Stevens), a couple of scene-stealing cameos and this decade’s Puss in Boots, and you have a true cinematic marvel – an inventive and thoroughly entertaining blockbuster. – James Croot
