I don’t do movie reviews much anymore ’cause I’m getting kind of bored of ’em and on top of that, I’m losing interest in seeing new movies lately. Nothing really good out these days, ya know? I did see a good movie finally and that’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” so I’ll briefly review that one.
The movie was fun and entertaining like the first one was except I thought the 2nd one was way better than the first. Casting of the 2nd movie was great. Michael Rooker was awesome and so was Kurt Russell. Like usual Kurt Russell kills it like he does in every movie he stars in. It was awesome seeing Kurt and Michael Rooker play in a movie together. The story was good. The jokes in the movie were hilarious as I couldn’t help myself but crack up at some of the jokes in the movie. Some of it even got me laughing. The action was a blast to watch, though.
While the movie was fun and entertaining, I was most impressed with Sly’s cameo. Sly Stallone was in the movie but not very much. Sly played a character named Stakar Ogord. Even though his role was small, Stallone is already getting so much attention out of that character. There’s already a lot of demand that fans wants to see more of Stakar and I agree. That character was awesome & Sly did a great job playing him. It was cool seeing Sly and Michael Rooker in a same scene together. This wasn’t the first time those two starred in a movie together as they were in “Cliffhanger” together, remember that movie? We need to see more Stakar, so hopefully Sly’s character gets his own solo movie or he’ll be in more of “Guardians 3”.
So did Sly Stallone and Kurt Russell reunite? Well, it’s not what you think so no. While Sly and Kurt were in the same movie together, they never played in any scenes together at all which kind of sucks. I was hoping for some sort of Tango & Cash reunion myself but we never got that unfortunately. I’m sure Sly and Kurt hung out some on set behind the scenes as I’m sure those guys are still great friends.
One thing for sure, I’m so impressed with Dave Bautista’s acting skills. Most professional wrestlers that turn into actors don’t have good acting skills (yeah, Dwayne Johnson is not that good of an actor) but I’m impressed with Dave. Most guys with big muscles are horrible at acting but Dave’s got the skills. If you want to know why Dave is starring in a lot of big movies lately and why he’s doing so great in the industry is ’cause he’s a good actor. I always knew that Dave was a good actor ’cause I used to watch him in WWE back in the day. Once again, Dave is one wrestler actor who has actual talent. He may be a huge guy with big muscles but he also has a good speaking voice. I just like his voice, it’s so badass.
“Guardians 2” was a great movie and I’m definitely getting it on Blu Ray when it comes out. If you’re a fan of superhero flicks, you should definitely see this yourself.
