Trivia

When the character of Ayesha was first introduced in the comics, she was just named "Her" (since she was created as a counterpart to the character Adam Warlock, originally named "Him"). She then took on the name "Kismet" and was renamed yet again as "Ayesha." In "Fantastic Four" #11 (by Chris Claremont, Salvador Larroca and Art Thibert) the Four ask her for her name, and she replies, "I have had many, but the most appropriate is Ayesha: She--who must be obeyed!" Both the name "Ayesha" and the sobriquet "She who must be obeyed" are references to the 1887 adventure novel "She: A History of Adventure" by H. Rider Haggard. The main character of the story was also a priestess named Ayesha (referred to throughout as "She-who-must-be-obeyed"). The elaborate Art Deco-style costume and production design for this movie's Ayesha is also a nod to the most famous movie adaptation of Haggard's novel, She (1935). See more »

Great sequel overall
20 August 2017 | by crbermeSee all my reviews

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a great movie, and I would say better than the recent superhero movies. I'm afraid thought that the first movie set the expectations so high that is not crazy to doubt if this one was able to keep up.

Visually is as good as the first one, the acting is on point and the soundtrack is dope. The plot is fine, although it falls under the "knowing better the characters and realizing their sad and deep feelings" cliché. It leaves me with the feeling that the first one was innovative and fresh, wherever this one just reused the formula.

Apart from that, this is an entertaining and fun movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who is into superhero or science fiction movies. It doesn't disappoint.
