5 Reasons ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Is Better Than The Original

Previous1 of 6

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2When Guardians of the Galaxy hit cinemas in 2014 it surprised everyone. Offering a unique blend of whiz-bang intergalactic excitement, a groovy out-of-this-world soundtrack, a smörgåsbord of oddball characters, and wacky rib-clutching comedy, Guardians had it all. It was definitely the Marvel movie to beat… until Vol. 2 came out.

Offering the same blend of winning ingredients, but amping up the story, the characters, and the emotional resonance, Guardians Vol. 2 accomplishes the rare sequel feat of being even better than the original. A lot of people will disagree with me, but I believe the first film, while excellent, had certain storytelling flaws, which the sequel was able to remarkably overcome. The result is a brand-spanking new adventure for Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot, that improves upon the original in several ways.

Here are the five reasons why Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is better than the original. Click next to blast off! Please note that SPOILERS for  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will follow!

    Nope…
    Yondu is an anti-hero funny and sarcastic in GoG 1.
    In GoG 2 they created an unnecessary drama about the character. Did he become a daddy to Quil? Funeral with fireworks? WTF?
