Ha...just realised that Pom Klementieff (Mantis) is in there too (silver outfit, blonde hair, in it loads)

That fell a bit flat for me. Everyone was overpowered and indestructible (which you expect from Superman and Wonder woman bit not this lot). Plot meandered too much and when it did kick in you thought "Yeah, I've seen that episode of Star Trek/Futurama/whatever."

Half the jokes fell flat, 40% were in the trailer but some worked.

I did like the fact it wasn't a stomp universe conquering evil set out from the get go. But what they did deliver felt dull and lacked threat or any building sense of dread.

Can we stop doing swarms of spacecraft now please?

Gorgeous to look at though.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Same here. Loved the first film, which felt like a breath of fresh air. The second one was… fine. Which pretty much sums up every superhero film I've seen since, well, the original Guardians.

The plot was the main offender in GOTG 2.
Everything just ground to a halt when the team reached planet Ego and what followed was about half an hours worth of dull exposition.  ::)
