"I AM GROOT!!"
Vol. 2 is incredible. I loved every single minute of it. While I'm not sure that it is quite as good as the first, it comes pretty darn close. The movie brings back all of the characters you loved from the first film, and introduces you to some new characters as well. I thought this movie was very funny, I was laughing at nearly every scene. However, behind all the humor, and amazing visuals is a truly great story about family. The theme of this movie is very powerful. It continues the character development of some of the characters that weren't as focused on in the first film, such as Yondu and Nebula. Now, I will say this, we all know that Yondu was a pretty big jerk in the first film. However, he turns out to be one of my favorite characters of the second one. They continue to build on his story, and we understand why he acts the way he does. Now, I am going to mention the character that most people are so excited to see return. BABY GROOT! Baby Groot is just as awesome as he was in all the trailers. I know some people were worried that they would overuse Baby Groot. However I enjoyed every scene that he was in. I will also mention that there is a hilarious end credits scene involving a teenage groot. Okay, I have to get into spoilers, I have too. So, *SPOILER WARNING* There, you have been warned. Now I know that some people are complaining that the villains of this movie, the Soverigns, boring and they don't mean anything to the story. However, they really aren't the villains. The true antagonist of this film is *SPOILER WARNING!* Ego, Peter's father. Overall, I truly did enjoy this installment almost as much as the first. Go see it! It's incredible!
