Goofs

When Rocket escapes with Yondu, he asks if they still have any of Peter's old music on the ship. The song they put on the intercom is "Come a Little Bit Closer" by Jay and the Americans, which is on Awesome Mix Vol 2. Peter didn't get that tape until the end of the first movie, long after he was staying on Yondu's ship. See more »

Quotes

[while showing Groot how to arm the bomb]
Rocket: All right, first you flick this switch, then this switch. That activates it.
[he points to a button]
Rocket: Then you push this button, which will give you five minutes to get outta there.
[he points to another button]
Rocket: Now whatever you do, don't push THIS button, because that will set off the bomb immediately, and we'll all be dead. Now, repeat back what I just said.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: Uh-huh.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: That's right.

This movie is a joyous experience. Guaranteed to raise your mood!
8 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James Gunn is clearly a fan of the work, and his love for the material shows through out the movie. Such a weird and bizarre universe so beautifully adapted to the screen.

This time around, part2 concentrates more on character development rather than being a plot driven movie. It concentrates on building the team dynamics and their relationships with each other. This enriches the movie's universe and is a decision with long term considerations for the series.

Even if you miss out on the amount of plot, you will be easily distracted by the great humor. The jokes are well written through out the running time. I haven't had so many laughs in a movie since Deadpool.

The plot is well written and the extra character development time raises the stakes and our attachment to the characters during action scenes. The actions scenes are visually incredible, in fact the entire universe is colorful and beautiful to behold.

I had a blast watching this movie, and I think you will too.
