This movie might be the one in this entire franchise that the largest gulf between my expectation of it, and what I ended up feeling about it when I finally saw it. I adored the first Guardians of the Galaxy, just read my post about it when I saw it again last year. It’s still one of my favourite movies in the entire franchise. Which is why the sequel was such a let down for me when we eventually got it.
