Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – Trailer vs. Movie #27 (-7.8)

As is typical with all my posts, please be aware there are possible spoilers.

The trailer that I watched for this movie is below:

Guardians of the Galaxy is a fun popcorn movie to start off the official summer movie season.  If you liked the first movie there is no doubt you will like the second, though the tone of the second movie is quite different from the first.

Director James Gunn takes the 80’s and cranks up the volume to 11.  There are so many pop culture references in the movie I lost track after a while.  So many that it may have been more of a crutch then a help.  I felt this mostly during one of the big fight sequences when video game culture is used to explain attack patterns of one of the antagonists, felt pretty cheesy.

There are very few of these instances in the movie though.  It just made Guardians a great movie and not a amazing movie.

The trailer in this case doesn’t give away anything about the movie.  Keeps all of the antagonists in the dark perfectly, shows humor and draws in the crowd just like it should.

 

(10/10 is a perfect rating)
