Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2-Kids’ Movie Reviews

The group of misfit Guardians are back. Peter Quill (aka Star Lord) with his “Awesome Mix Tape Vol 2”, Gamora, the green warrior, Drax, the blue muscleman, Groot, the little tree-like creature, and Rocket, the cute raccoon. In this film the Guardians are hired by a powerful alien race to protect their expensive batteries from invaders. However, things get complicated when it’s discovered that Rocket has stolen the precious items, and so the aliens want to seek revenge. As the Guardians try to escape, the mystery of Peter’s parentage is revealed. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an action packed science fiction film for tweens and up.
