Trivia

While this is the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be released on the 4K UHD video format (mainly thanks to a push from director James Gunn), this would not be the first MCU film to have a true 4K digital intermediate, but rather an upscale from a 2K DI. Marvel films would not switch to true 4K DIs until Black Panther (2018), with Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) following suit. See more »

Goofs

The trailer dialogue between Star Lord and Gamora about her holding a rifle is different from the final release, but it should be noted that some scenes in a trailer could be changed or deleted in the final cut. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Meredith Quill: [sing along with the song Brandy] There's a girl in this harbor town / And she works layin' whiskey down / They say, Brandy, fetch another round / She serves them whiskey and wine / The sailors say, Brandy, you're a fine girl.

*SPOILER FREE REVIEW*

As a huge fan of the first film, I went to watch the movie as soon as it came out. And I have to say I wasn't disappointed at all.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 Offers so much thrills and an awesome cinematic experience, The action starts right from the opening scene and it doesn't end until the last 2 seconds of the film. The people behind the movie just knew how to not make the audience bored, and they succeeded at that.

I have to say that 3D ticket here is worth the additional price, because honestly, if any movie deserved to be really watched in 3D it's this one,It adds so much depth to the scenes and makes the movie alive.

The plot is interesting enough to keep you engaged and the pacing never really drags even with the movie's long duration.

The soundtrack just fits right into its place and it really helped the background quality, providing the best classic songs. The movie is also really humorous and I found it as funny as the first.

Due to the movie's high budget, the scenery is Amazing! The movie feels like a very entertaining roller coaster, it was a joy and all the crowd were very pleased.

In the end, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 Is a MUST-SEE for fans of the first one and a VERY ENJOYABLE ride for everyone else. It's simply one of these movies that are always fun to watch.
