I know sequels are usually rubbish. But I can’t help hoping this movie will at least retain some of the greatness of the original “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
The trailer has two good points:
- a promising soundtrack
- a fine line: “There are two types of beings in the universe. Those who dance. And those who do not.” This is a pretty good distinction.
The trailer also has one bad point:
- not much evidence of anything new or original from the previous outing.
I am of course a congenital optimist and lover of good sci-fi and comedy, so will continue to hope that “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will be brilliant. Watch this space.
