80. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017). Directed by James Gunn

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017) score: 76%

While this Guardians entry starts a little emptily and without direction, it soon makes up for it with pure fun, heart-wrenching character development, and eye-straining action.

Needless to say the music is spot-on (if occasionally relied on too much) and the comedy is expertly well-timed, but it’s the visuals which, even by the first GOTG’s standards, are staggeringly gorgeous. Every shade of every colour is employed in every kaleidoscopic scene, and it never once feels unwelcome.

While Vol 2 isn’t as well-rounded or substantial as Vol 1, it should still be considered as one of the (expensive) jewels in Marvel’s weighty crown.
