[Filmreview] Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

 

Marvel Studios surpassed themselves

With the sequel of their 2014 modern
nostalgia trip „Guardians of the Galaxy” the Marvel Studios finally started the
third phase of their legacy. Written and directed by James Gunn und performed
by award-winning actors like Vin Diesel, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana or Bradley
Cooper, another Marvel comic had come to screen – with thrill from the first
till the last second.
After having saved the whole galaxy
for the first time in Volume 1 of this about to be trilogy, the Guardians are
facing another catastrophe they have to eliminate – of course in accordance
with the whole universe. Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and
the rejuvenated Groot, firstly recruited by the so called Sovereigns to protect
energy cells, soon become hunted by their employers because of a little
misunderstanding. In addition, Peter’s father, Ego, who was missing for more
than thirty years, suddenly appears and wants to be the father he never could
be. Moreover, he is a god. Ego takes the Guardians to his planet which
amazingly consists of himself. But nothing is like it seems to be – not even
the lucky family reunion.
This action-packed movie set in the
whole universe, mainly on Ego’s planet, captivates his audience with much sense
of humour but also with some very emotional scenes that drive tears to your
eyes. The characters have to surpass themselves and I really admire that
Rocket, Drax and Groot are not like sidekicks for Star-Lord or Gamora but have
their own good and bad characteristics. Even though their story is set in a
complete other universe than ours you as a viewer will be able to connect with
the situation and the heroes. Moreover, the soundtrack (70s and 80s music)
supports the characters and the binding action.
This production is a must-see for
Marvel but also for action fans. With humour and emotions “Guardians of the
Galaxy Vol. 2” is an audience pleaser and very worth seeing. On a scale from
zero to ten, I give this film a certain ten. I was really impressed by the
feeling it got me into and how it amused and fascinated me to keep watching
this truly great piece of filmmaking. Go watch it. It will not be a waste of
time.
 „Warum das?“ wird sich der eine oder andere jetzt vielleicht gefragt haben. Eine Filmreview in englischer Sprache gab es hier auf meinem Blog noch nie. Und vermutlich wird es sie auch nie wieder in solcher Form geben. Da wir jedoch für den Englischunterricht unsere Meinung über einen Film unserer Wahl in Worte fassen und ich wollte meine mit euch teilen – auch wenn sie in Englisch ist.
Die Kurzfassung:
Ein genialer, emotionaler und actionreicher Film, den man gesehen haben sollte!
Liebe Grüße, eure Sophia!
