THIS SUMMER, THE GALAXY WON’T SAVE ITSELF.
When Rocket steals valuable batteries from a hostile race, the Guardians of the Galaxy are hunted – and saved by a man (Kurt Russell) who claims to be Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) father. This 3D sequel delivers exactly what fans of the first movie expect – colorful battles in space, constant banter between our antiheroes who now consider themselves family, lots of inside jokes and a fresh bevy of 1970s rock hits to go along with the mayhem. Very entertaining, with a hilarious cameo by David Hasselhoff, and an OK story that deals with Peter’s daddy issues. But above all, the motley Guardians are the best thing about it.
