Yah well, this was supposed to be scheduled for last week but I messed up a little bit when scheduling my entries so it will appear a week later. In any case, I don’t think it affects much and I shall move on to the entry proper. I suppose the naming convention for this sequel is also different from most other movies, and it sort of mirrors the 2nd volume of oldies soundtrack featured throughout the movie too.

The movie starts off with this new team undertaking a mission whose employer will probably play a bigger role in future though there’s still some importance in this movie, just secondary to the main ‘boss’ this time. More importantly I think this time it acts as a way to trace the origins of the main man further, as well as laying the foundation for further expansions into this team’s future (films), and perhaps even have links to other future Marvel movies when they do appear, considering there’s that appearance and cameo of Stan Lee which I feel is probably something more important than what he has appeared to be previously in terms of referencing something.

Style wise, I would say this team continues to have their own unique teamwork and bickering, along with humour that will be shown throughout the movie, so you could say it continues to be quite a different Marvel production as compared to the ‘mainstream’ heroes which made this genre of movies so popular globally. Rather than focusing on the action stuff, I think this team is better in pulling off crazy things in a casual and unexpected manner which has its own entertainment value too. The plot isn’t so bad, but how it wrapped up was slightly underwhelming for me.

Overall, I think this movie is more of a entertaining production rather than being particularly serious and I am curious on how it will link up with other characters in the cinematic universe as well as how the future movie(s) for this team will pan out. Baby Groot was pretty quite in this movie. Lol. My take: 6.5/10
