User Reviews

 
An Expansion to Vol. 1 🎊

Vol. 1 had the Advantage of Originality but Vol. 2 has the Advantage of Expanding on those Characters and Adding an Even more Amazing Spectacle on top of it.

Things I Liked:

° The Opening was Great, it sets the mood right away.

° It was Visually Spectacular

° Yondu's Escape was Brilliant

° Some Funny Humour

° The Reveal was set up nicely

° It had some touching parts in this Movie

° Rockets' Escape from the Forest was Great

° The Different Songs in the Different scenes were Great additions

° The Fireworks Scene was Beautiful.

Overall, Vol. 2 would not have worked without Vol. 1.
