Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 has just hit theatres, and
much like its predecessor, it's already a smash hit. The film made double its
budget back in just under three days and marks yet another home run for the
Marvel Cinematic Universe as phase three rolls on.
There are a lot of things that make the film a worthy follow-up to James Gunn's most surprising MCU success. There's its incredibly
engaging overarching narrative, the beautiful effects, the brilliant acting on
the part of virtually everyone involved, and an escalation of the first film's threat.
However, the one thing that arguably stands above all of
that is the movie's peerless sense of humor. There's no two ways about it, Vol. 2 is an utterly hilarious movie that seeks to pack in as many laughs as it does action sequences and disarming moments of heart.
It's arguably the single funniest MCU film to date, in addition to being enough to give Deadpool a run for its money, and some of the moments will live long in comic memory...
A film-loving wrestling fan from west Texas who will live and die by the statement that Return of the Jedi is the best Star Wars movie and unironically cherishes the brief moment and time when Deuce & Domino were WWE Tag Team Champions. Hates honey, but loves honey mustard.
