In the second trailer, The Sweet's "Fox on the Run" plays in the background. In one of the Suicide Squad (2016) trailers, The Sweet's song "Ballroom Blitz" plays in its background. This is a coincidence, because both songs appeared on the same album and Suicide Squad is also DC's answer to Marvel's Guardians, furthering the connections and coincidences. See more »

Good, maybe even great, but doesn't live up to the first.
When going to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 the main thing I was looking for was to have fun, and on that account this film sure does deliver. The characters we know and love are still just as great and a couple of new people are introduced too. However, Gamora is still the most boring character out of the Guardians, and unfortunately, Drax doesn't really do a lot except tell jokes, which are very funny admittedly. Baby Groot makes up for this and is great, if not just a little worse than the last incarnation of him we saw in the last movie. Once again the villain is not great, but he is better than Ronan in the last movie. The real flaw with this movie is that it simply isn't as good as the first one. Number 1 captured lightning in a bottle and this one attempts that and comes pretty close, but in the end, doesn't. This does not make it a bad film, however. It is still hilarious, action packed and a great deal of fun improving on some elements of the original and I recommend it to any fans of Guardians of the Galaxy. Just remember to keep your expectations in check. 8/10
