Consensus: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's action-packed plot, dazzling visuals, and irreverent humor add up to a sequel that's almost as fun -- if not quite as thrillingly fresh -- as its predecessor.

In Marvel lingo, Guardians 2 feels like a great six-issue arc, the kind of storytelling that used to be the backbone of superhero comics.

[Yondu's] presence kicks the idling movie into gear, and into a final third act for which all of the previous meandering can be forgiven - and the talk of family finally accrues the weight the film has been trying to put on it.

So just when the familial schmaltz threatens to overwhelm proceedings, there's always a dated pop reference or scatological gag to leaven the mood.

The reunion of the Guardians cements Pratt's mega-stardom. He has a shaggy young Kurt Russell vibe (think Big Trouble in Little China,). And Russell himself is a great addition to the ensemble, providing a dose of kick-back, kick-ass action

Director James Gunn has a vision and he puts it across, but it ain't pretty.

At times, there's a bit too much going on, and it starts to feel like maybe we're just being set up for Vol. 3. But so what if we are? Fun is the name of the game here, and Vol. 2 has it in spades
