Peter Quill and his fellow Guardians are hired by a powerful alien race, the Sovereign, to protect their precious batteries from invaders. When it is discovered that Rocket has stolen the items they were sent to guard, the Sovereign dispatch their armada to search for vengeance. As the Guardians try to escape, the mystery of Peter's parentage is revealed.
This sequel was still just as good as the first movie, well maybe even a little bit better. In this movie you get to see Peter's father and learn more about Peter's past. There you get to see Peter's father in action working on building this family bond back together, but his father has some other motive in mind. His father's name is Ego, so you can just guess how his attitude really is toward his own son. With a name like Ego, you know he is going to suck.
This sequel tried to be more of a comedy than an action adventure movie. There were a lot more jokes in this movie than you would think that there would be. Now with all of the added jokes in the movie did not make this movie really funny. That is why I said that they "tried". They did not succeed.
The entire cast came by for the sequel, so you do not have to get use to a new person, except for the addition to Kurt Russell to the cast and a few minor characters. Russell was great in the movie. You do not see him much anymore, so you just kind of forget about him. Seeing him in this movie reminds you of how good of an actor he still is.
The best part of the entire movie were the special effects. I mean, come on, that is what you really watch this movie for. The effects and the creation of these different worlds and the ships are what really bring people into the theaters. It is really the best part. It seems that there are more and better effects in the sequel. Another reason to see the movie, is to see if the second movie looks better that the first one. You know it does.
The soundtrack for the movie is just as good, if not better than the first movie. I love it. This is one of those movies that need to be watched at least once, if not over and over again. This is a movie that you need to own for yourself. It is well worth buying. Enjoy.
