One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Just plain awful. If you want a good movie go the first film of this series.

Written for 'tweens', but with lots of vulgarity. Parents, don't expose your children to this kind of flashy drivel.

I liked this one better than the first. It has lots of jokes and adventure. Also, baby Groot is so cute.

Lots of action and fun. The raccoon with the off-colored jokes was pretty funny. This was the epitome of a fun summer movie. I heard there would be a crossover with other Marvel Comics superheroes. That would absolutely be wild.

A great movie - although I enjoyed it more the second time watching it. The storyline for Quills father doesn't follow the storyline that was established in the comics but once you ignore that then the story becomes enjoyable.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first volume of Guardians of the Galaxy. It was a fun flick in the midst of the Marvel Cinema Universe's growing seriousness, and it didn't require watching any previous movies to fully understand the story. Take it from me, I wasn't as invested in Civil War because I skipped out on both preceding Captain America movies and Iron Man III.

So when the second volume became available at my library, I checked it out and sat down to watch. And while I may have picked the worst time to watch this movie, it enhanced my emotional experience.

The core of this movie is the Guardians themselves--this ragtag family unit compiled of individuals who have been hurt in the past and are trying to mend themselves. Rocket and Gamora are some of the more prime examples of this, having come from abusive backgrounds. Without trying to give away spoilers, there is a point near the end of the movie when our team of heroes experience a loss. And I was watching this during a time when I was experiencing a similar loss. I didn't think I'd cry over a superhero movie, but there I was.

I'll need to see this again to get a better grasp of how I feel about it, but as of this moment, it's a pretty good watch.

This film is great for Marvel and non-Marvel fans alike. I don't watch many films by this company nor am I a fan, but I must say that I really enjoyed this movie. There is a lot of great humour and sarcasm, and the characters are interesting and complex. It had a great opening scene as I felt that it captured the essence of the movie perfectly with music and all. The graphics in this film are fantastic with such vivid and vibrant colours as well as amazing sets. Although I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first movie, the story was still very intriguing, and it was portrayed very well. I would definitely see this film again, and no matter how you’re feeling, I believe that this film can put you in the best mood, even if you do get upset at some parts. 5/5 stars.

The original Guardians of the Galaxy was an amazing movie and would be very hard to follow up, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 does a stellar job of it. It progresses the story in a great way giving backstories to a lot of the characters. The soundtrack can be enjoyed by everyone, as can the rag-tag group of friends that the movie series is based around is very lovable. The characters are great and well thought out, and they all provide comedic relief at the perfect moments. The writers really nailed this movie and they certainly know what they are doing to make this movie enjoyable for the entire family. Overall this movie can be enjoyed by anyone, Marvel fans or not, and is a great movie. 5 out of 5.

Much like the first movie, I was scared to watch this one with worries of whether or not it could live up to the hype. This movie is nothing like you expect and takes on a completely different story line and planet- but what makes it so lovable is the characters unchanging nature. They are the same hilarious, dysfunctional, misfit team as the first movie but still manage to develop into more mature characters. The new set of characters (baby groot, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell) add another level to the movie which is unmatched and it becomes an emotional roller coaster. The perfect blend of comedy, action, and emotion. I wouldn’t say it surpasses the first movie, but it would be nearly impossible to. As far as sequels go, better than most, and well worth the hype. Rating: 4.5/5

Fun to watch, although wife thought it had too much potty humor in it.

Pages of quotes at IMBd. These two stand out:
