Every bit as much fun, and more interesting than the original 2014 film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is a more sentimental and comical film that finds Peter Quill, “Star-Lord” reunited with his biological father – Ego, a god-like figure with his own planet. Faced with the prospect of ruling the universe with his father, Peter’s fellow Guardians suspect that Ego’s plans for his son are not what Peter has hoped. Like a state-of-the-art amusement ride, Vol. 2 is a terrific thrill that never misses a beat (Klaus Ming May 2017).
