Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a 2017 American superhero film directed by James Gunn and based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel. The film follows the Guardians as they travel the galaxy in search of Peter Quill's biological father while facing new dangers and uncovering new secrets surrounding their past.

The movie begins with the Guardians already established as a team of misfits, including the human Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, the green-skinned assassin Gamora, the revenge-seeking Drax, the genetically modified raccoon Rocket, and the humanoid tree Groot who has regrown from his sacrifice in the first movie. They are approached by a powerful race called the Sovereign, who hire them to protect powerful intergalactic batteries from an invading monster.

After successfully defending the batteries and escaping the Sovereign's wrath, the Guardians are contacted by Peter's long-lost father Ego, a god-like being who has been searching for his son. Ego takes Peter, Gamora, and Drax to his lush and celestial planet while Rocket and Groot stay behind to repair the damaged ship and guard their prisoner, Gamora's adoptive sister Nebula. However, things aren't as they seem on Ego's planet, and soon the Guardians uncover a dark truth about Ego's intentions.

Meanwhile, the bounty hunters sent by the Sovereign catch up to the Guardians, and Yondu Udonta and his crew also enter the fray, revealing more about Peter's past and his connection to the Ravagers. The movie features action-packed space battles, hilarious dialogue, and heartwarming moments between the Guardians that develop their characters further.

The standout performances come from the leading cast members, especially Pratt's hilarious and charming portrayal of Quill, and the dynamic between Gamora and her estranged sister Nebula, played by Karen Gillan. The film also introduces new characters such as the empath Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff, who adds an interesting layer to the dynamics among the Guardians.

The visual effects are stunning and imaginative, with Ego's planet and its celestial themes adding a unique and impressive touch. The soundtrack, once again featuring classic rock songs from the '70s and '80s, is just as memorable as the first movie's soundtrack and perfectly complements the action and humor of the film.

Overall, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a fun, action-packed sequel that expands on the characters and world established in the first movie while delivering a heartfelt and entertaining story. The film is a testament to the power of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the skill of James Gunn as a filmmaker.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a 2017 science fiction movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 16 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.6 and a MetaScore of 67.
