GOG volume 2 is part of Guardians of the Galaxy series, based on science fiction, comedy genre. It was released in April 2017 in Tokyo, whereas by May it was released worldwide. It is an American superhero team (Guardians of the Galaxy) based film, produced by Marvel Studios. Fifteen films have so far been produced under Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 being the latest one. James Gunn who wrote and directed the first volume, also paid his service for the second volume. Just like the first volume, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 also comprises of good and content based songs making the movie livelier. It is so far, the 6th highest grossing movie of 2017, grossing over 430 million $ in box office.
Keeping volume 1 in mind, this movie has not failed to disappoint with on point acting, songs and cinematography. Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 is all about action, comedy and a little bit of romance. But then too, volume 1 has still kept its charm intact and is still being considered over volume 2. The storyline continues from where it ended in part 1. The adult Groot is now actually a baby Groot, with all the other cast remaining to be same as well.
The Guardians of the Galaxy are set off to another mission assigned to them by the Sovereign to save the valuable batteries, although they managed to save the batteries but the inner thief of Rocket raccoon urges him to steal few batteries and that leads to Sovereign again chasing after the superhero team. Volume 2 is movie more about family reunion both for Peter Quill and Gamora, where Peter Quill learns about his real father and other unanswered questions related to his past. Gamora on the other hand, wanted to set things right with Nebula (her adoptive sister), but the neglected Nebula had other plans in mind. Peter Quill will also make us enjoy to his Awesome mixtape 2, comprising of songs such as Mr.Blue Sky by electric Light Orchestra, Fox on the Run by The Sweet, the Chain by Fleetwood Mac etc. James Gunn chose all the songs for vol. 2, including some famous and some unheard songs in the collection. Tyler Bates returns for this movie to compose the scores for this film. It is a good family movie (PG 13 rated) with lots of gag moments, and is surely a must watch movie of 2017.
