teen movie

It's a movie for kids and adolescents - cute, baby, talking tree. If you are an adult and disappointed, then seriously, what did you expect? — Uncle Squid

Good

Ok I'm going to say it should be rated r for what they talk about but it was still good — Govhhggfff

Millennial Focus Ruined Another One
★★★★★
I had high hopes for this when I was going to see it in theatres. After seeing it, though I never want to see it again. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is a millennial flop. It has some cool moments, here and there, but the film is dominated by millennial trash. Y'know what I'm talking about. How characters have to discuss their feelings, and at least two female characters have to have a moment all to themselves, for 'muh diversity.' This film panders HARD to millennials. The negative points are only multiplied by the worst 'kill off a major character' idea ever. But as I said there a few cool moments worth seeing, once, and preferably on your friend's device who foolishly preordered the film but didn't see it in theatres. There are only a handful of scenes that are really awesome, excluding the intro scene - which is also awesome. These scenes mostly involve Rocket, Yondu, and Groot. As worthwhile as these scenes are to see, you can likely find them online. Which saves you both money and from having to slog through the millennial trash that is the rest of the film. Save your money for a better film, hopefully Vol. 3 - if it's at least as good as Vol. 1. — Kondeki

Very Disappointing - Awful Language and....
★★★★
We saw this movie on a Disney Cruise and were embarrassed to sit through it. Disney writers inserted totally unnecessary profanity and sexual references. They have managed to ruin a promising young series of movies targeted for the young and young at heart. I cannot believe Disney put their name on this -- Walt is turning over in his grave. It is sad when you cannot trust Disney any more to release uplifting entertainment and you have to filter it like the the other stuff coming from the entertainment media. Disney should edit out the offensive content and try again. We are done with Guardians of the Galaxy. It is too bad. — Cowpens06

Funny
★★★★★
Now this was a good movie. The idea that they brought the planet into it here is a little disappointing because that should happen after peter meets his dad. Unless they are throwing a surprise twist into things later. Now we also see a really great ending after the battle. With the gold people creating such a iconic person. The question is where and when will we see all these things come together. Sure we have the avengers but we also have many areas in space. The Nova corp planets, Sovereign empire, nowhere, Cree empire, and then you have spartax empire and then thanos empire, also it is yet to be seen if the silver surfer Will show up. There are many ways to go if the movie companies will get off their back sides and actually work with marvel and other holders of characters to make a movie that works well, tells a story, explores the different challenges that they have. — Die Free

WASTE OF TIME
★★★★
HOW!? Just how can anyone say this was any good? There were some good parts in it, but overall the movie was just crap. So much time wasted on the Mantis chick, too much time wasted on 1 planet, it was just so boring. Worst MCU movie so far. — MicroGasm

Great Sequel!!
★★★★★
Sequels are usually a little less than the original. Not the case with Vol 2. In many ways the story was more engaging than Vol 1. Love the music throughout. Laughed and cried! Great movie! Lots of fun! — Mike32457

It's good
★★★★★
Trust me — Dovic

Trying too hard
★★★★★
Too many story arcs. Character progression was forced. Boiled down to some good one liners, pretty visual effects, and vapid substance. A severely cheapened version of the first movie. — stef.incognito

Pure Garbage...
★★★★
This movie sucked sooooooo bad. The plot was weak. The script was weak. GOTG2 had some funny moments. But, it still sucked. — Kentoine1975

Guardians 2 does it again!
★★★★★
If you liked 1 you'll like 2. The overly technical will complain about about inconsistencies but there was something about both movies that made me forget my analytical side for awhile. Guardians is JUST PLAIN FUN! Sit back and enjoy the ride. — Abundant Grace

Good effects weak story
★★★★★
1st one was way better, this was kill bill — VAnative

Attrocious with some mildly funny lines
★★★★★
Mostly CGI with a very lame plot and forced unnecssary relationships Occasional funny lines get it to 2 stars for me — Joshua van Aalst

Just awesome
★★★★★
I was dubious whether I would like this although I liked the first one. I'm not a marvel fan and look for a movie to entertain me. This certainly did that plus it has a lot of humor. Massively entertaining and the soundtrack is just awesome. — Fireblade954blue

7.1 sound
★★★★★
Was surprise that this had 7.1 surround sound. It has a great soundtrack. Wish Apple would put out Atmos soundtrack movies. — TheaterGreg

DISSAPOINTING
★★★★★
Was very dissappointed in this version. Villains made no sense. Acting was silly and it was like someone else besides Jim Gunn was directing.. Curt Russell was a very poor choice for the dad. Story was lame and bordered on silly. I'd call this a kids version. Critics at Rotten are useless. — BestRater

Guardians II
★★★★★
Really enjoyed... Come on little Groot who couldn't love him😘 — havalittlefun

wow, what a bore
★★★★★
Ok, the visuals are goregeous, definitely nice eye candy, but... the storyline is soooo boring and predictable! Lot's of awkward moments, and not the sarcastic clever kind that are fun, but just straight up uncomfortable and so long that you just wonder how in the world did they pass the cutting floor. No character development, overwhelming amount of cheap circus-grade humor, that lacks any level of sophistication. If the audience is 10-graders that I suppose the movie hit the mark with it's target audience. For everyone else... wait until this cheap-trick run-of-the-mill been-there-done-that cookie-cutter-hollywood junk is "free" on netflix or something. — Kozerovsky

How could you screw it up so bad?
★★★★
Fire who ever wrote this CRAP second movie! This was totally PATHETIC!! I want my money back! This moviw was crap!!! What is even worse, ALL THE WRITERS FOCUSED ON IS HOW BIG THEIR PENIS IS AND HOW THEY GOT THEIR MOTHERS PREGNANT! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? AND YOU SAY THIS IS A FILM FOR KIDS?!!! THIS WAS THE WORST WRITING ANYONE COULD DO FOR A MOVIE AND THE MUSIC WAS EVEN WORSE!! DID YOU PEOPLE IN HOLLYWOOD EVEN READ THE SCRIPT??? THIS WAS TOTAL GARBAGE!! — D.N.TN

Haven't watched it
★★★★★
I haven't watched it but the first one was really great so i hope this is 💩😀😍 — bunk'd all the way

Best Sequel (*EVER*)!!!!!!!
★★★★★
Best movie I have seen in YEARS..... — Wild Wolfman

Not as good as the first
★★★★
Don't get me wrong, I loved it but didn't think it was quite as memorable as the first one. Something about the first one really connected while this one delivers heavily on the humor but lacks a bit in plot. Nevertheless it's still an enjoyable watch that is perfect for the summer rut! — Laugh Love Beer

Fun and what you would expect
★★★★★
Brandy your a fine girl.... loved it — Jdjjfjfjddjjd

Bwahhhahahahahahha and WHAT THE .....
★★★★★
it was super funny, and by far, The tiny super cute groot was an AMAZING PART. Anyone who luvs Movies with, Terror, Humor, Sadness, Stupidness and WTFs you should watch this. — 💩mr.poop

Not as good as the original
★★★★★
It was nice to see the original cast from the first film return for another film but the plot, pacing & dialogue were nowhere near the caliber of the first film. A few characters in the supporting cast could have been completely removed from the film and nothing would be lost: Nebula, Yondu's human subordinate (so forgettable that I can't be arsed to recall his name), Sylvester Stallone's character (again, forgot the name), and Mantis were all pretty pointless and their presence didn't really add anything to the story at all. As a huge fan of Kurt Russell, I found his role poorly utilized and written. The film was extremely shallow and had me looking at my phone a few times. Wait for it to come to Netflix or a cheap rental if you're thinking of buying this one and haven't seen it yet. — TheRealFisky

Boring! I dont know why!
★★★★★
Fell asleep at the cinema! Wonder why? — jadechick21

Dumbest movie ever!
★★★★
I'm guessing this will get deleted. But, in all my years watching movies, this is amongst the worst. I can't stress enough how bad it is. So bad! There is no plot. It's schizophrenic. I suffered the last hour thinking this can't be this bad. It was worse. If you watch this to the end, you will have a legit headache. Don't believe me? Enjoy the pain. — Unhappy with ParkMobile

I really enjoyed the movie.
★★★★★
A lot of people seem to be down on this movie but I really enjoyed it. The cast were great together, the action was awesome and the special effects were amazing. My new favorite character is Yondu and I would highly suggest watching this movie. — AndrewWayne1

It's just fun
★★★★★
This is the first and only review I will write about anything in my life. This movie isn't perfect. It most certainly has its flaws. However, I can't justify anything less than a perfect score since every time I see it I just have so much fun. I enjoy pretty much every moment of this movie every time I see it, because it is just that fun. In the end, that's about all that matters; I always enjoy this movie a whole ton, despite its few flaws. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie — 1-Up Boy

Too sappy
★★★★★
Way too much explaining. Way too sappy and sad. Really wish these movies would get back to action — gradick4sc

Sooooooo Stuuuuupid!
★★★★
This movie is sooooooo incredibly stuuuupid. I am sooooooo stuuuuupid for paying anything for it. The whole film was from hunger. Dumb from every angle. — Joe Buckstrap

Doesn't Work! 
★★★★★
Not as good as the first one. Story/script needed more originality, development and refinement...with less Hollywood blockbuster-ism. Too much gratuitous violence...too much silliness and dark-humour overwhelm or undercuts other good elements of the movie. There are some good moments and along with several or more moments of profound concepts, but not enough to balance-out the story. Most of but not all of the special-effects are good, but they "couldn't save the movie." The actors, who are very good, "couldn't save the movie"...it was a classical waste of talent. Recommendation: Don't buy...just rent it when it is selling for $3.99 or less. — Berkeley Rooster

So much fun!
★★★★★
Great addition to the series!! Can't wait for Vol. 3!!! — Xteeeeeena

We Are Groot
★★★★
I loved the first one much more than the second, but I did *like* the 2nd. The only real problem with it for me was mostly the portrayal of Drax. From taking things too literal in the first due to his heritage to kind of turning mean in the second was a character arc I could have done without. Baby Groot was of course adorable and Yondu's plot line and transition was excellent. I love Sean Gunn as Kraglin. Overall still a very very very good movie. Well worth taking the time. — kerleygirl23

The red arrow of death
★★★★★
I really love the red arrow of death part starting at 1:05 min best part in the movie. — Cheshire~Cat

Digital shouldn't cost that much as a disc.
★★★★
I mean come on I have to wait for the disc in which I'll get the digital copy free, more or less. Anyway if Apple wants to to get the digital first before anyone buys the disc should lower the price for purchasing a digital movie. I say 5 dollar flat for buying a digital copy! Come it's digital, there is no value in digital movie! Better yet Apple you could let us rent it instead of buying the digital movie! And for those of you that support the digital over a disc, that's your lost. Cause the way I see it your losing money. I don't need to explain why your losing money, this how Hollywood wants you to spend your money! — Gil619

Love
★★★★★
I loved this movie. Most sequels to awesome movies are terrible but this one is different the soundtrack is awesome and is very funny. 👍👍 — kellie macfarland

The first one is better
★★★★
This was a great movie but the first GOTG is still better. — xcroc

Eh
★★★★★
I liked it but I felt like they were focusing more on comedy instead of the storyline, and action. I don't mind funny but expected more action, more to the characters although Rocket still my fave. Groot is too cute. — GirlSammy!!!

Chris Pratt & Kurt Russell are Comedy Gold.
★★★★★
These two actors are one of the funniest actors ever known to Hollywood. Forget Rush Hour, Ride Along, or even The Matrix, hell even Star Wars can't compare to this. Guardians of the Galaxy is an instant classic for the decades, ages, and generations to come. ☺️ — South Stark 747

Pure awesomeness
★★★★★
Why yes I will preorder. Thank you very much!! — iAM.J0J0

Noisy.
★★★★★
First one rocked. This one is like a noisy video game with so much CG the substance gets squeezed out of the character moments. Great to be back with this family of misfits, but would have liked more time with the family vs. the over the top visual effects moments. — Arman223

Best Movie Ever!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
★★★★★
I love the music and some funny scenes. — Robmindy
