"Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2" comes very close to striking that balance but falls a little bit short.
The plot is convoluted - which is not necessarily a bad thing - so there is room for both humor and pathos in the body of this movie. There is also plenty of action to bridge the gaps between those parts of the film that are aimed at making us laugh and those scenes that are designed to give us a lump in our throats.
I'm not going to go into great detail about the plot because that could spoil the film for those that have not yet seen it, but I will say that Peter Quill and his misfit crew are just trying to make a living doing jobs for various planets as they flit about the galaxy. They battle an inter-dimensional space monster on one of those jobs and then get into trouble with the leader of that planet... so much trouble that she sends a fleet of spaceships after Quill and Co. The result: More trouble as Quill's former Ravager companions set out to find him in exchange for a huge reward.
In addition, Quill finally connects with his missing father - a man (?) he never knew.
That doesn't go quite as well as either of them might have hoped, however.
The special effects are on a par with other Marvel films, which is to say they are spectacular. The ensemble cast, headed by Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana is excellent and the direction is pretty smooth given the complex script.
Where the film falls short, in my opinion, is that it tries to cram too many pieces of candy into the jar. As a result, it's easy to get distracted as you watch the Guardians fight to not only save the galaxy but stay alive in the process.
For that reason, I give this film 4.5 stars instead of 5.
Love these movies and so glad they have turned out even better than that 2nd trailer that had 'Spirit In The Sky' in it way back.
To tell the truth, I was wasn't worried at all about Vol. 2. It's as fun and serious and deep and silly and teary as I'd hoped. Kudos to all involved!
I resisted watching the original movie for a long time, not so with Vol 2. Don't wait. See it often and make sure you have a copy to stream. It never gets old, just keeps getting better with each re-watch.
