The last third of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ is masterclass filmmaking. There is an assortment of emotions created that not only feel organic and earned but are riveting in their complexity. The film promotes a constant discussion of the consumption of purpose, both through symbolic imagery and potent dialogue, reminding the audience of the nuance in our individual missions and how this shapes identity. The storylines are extremely character-driven, providing often touching and jaw-dropping revelations that showcase the hidden details in life, again emphasised through a story of how our inner attitudes are not always conveyed properly. The film’s pure scope does often spread these intimate feelings too wide and Marvel’s trademark humour can interrupt some of the film’s most heartbreaking moments. But overall, this film marks a step forward for character stories in the comic book genre, with exceptional direction, writing and performances, including a genuinely Academy Award worthy display from Michael Rooker. It’s a concoction of incredible quality, a picture that will bring tears down your face. 4.5/5
