My Review

Let me just begin with how staggering the movie soundtrack is, featuring popular songs and a few that are seemingly divergent from today's music. I love that the sequel's OST is even better than the first one. I honestly thought no other OST could top Peter Quill's Awesome Mix Vol. 1. Awesome Mix Volume 2 is more diverse and that makes it more fascinating. The anticipation of watching any movie sequel always comes with great expectations on the innovation of story, visual effects and the characters. This film is the first one that has implanted a big hope of hearing another set of great music that I could bring with me at home in retrospect of the whole experience of movie watching. But then my anticipation of the music is just the second reason for watching the sequel. What pulled me towards the cinema is Groot. Baby Groot made both the music and movie very much satisfactory.

Everybody loves Groot because the little creature is excessively addictive that it brings so much joy not just to children but to viewers of all ages. The start of the movie with him dancing to an awesome music while Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket and Drax (Dave Bautista) fought a humongous monster was so clever and relaxing. The humor in it just filled my heart with so much delight and excitement. Groot is cuteness overload! I honestly didn't mind where the story was going or whether Peter's dad turns out to be an antagonist. Sure, the cinematography was fantastic but that is already expected. Also, any conversation between Drax and Mantis just cracked me up but I always found myself wanting to see Groot, so I get a bit bored or anxious when there are scenes without that overly adorable creature. Overall, it was indeed Groot and not the story that attracted me to watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The drawing power of that plant or tree-looking baby Groot is a must to see on Volume 3 so I hope that my kids and I will be seeing more and most of him next time.
