samarthbhaskar’s review published on Letterboxd :
The first Guardians of the Galaxy had the benefit of surprise. In the mix of Marvel movies, it drew the lucky straw of being fun, irreverent, self-referential, and light-hearted. The sequel, as a result, came in with expectations it had to meet. By and large, Vol 2 met these expectations.
My favorite part of these films is and will probably remain the music at its center. It was an inspired choice to have music play such a large role. And it helps that the music they use is so good.
