Sometimes in life you get experiences that you can't fully comprehend and walking the “purple carpet” at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere was one of them. Let's talk about who I saw, how I felt, and about my Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 review. This unbiased post is sponsored by Disney as a part of the epic #GotGVol2Event, obviously.
My Experience at The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Premiere
- “Holy crap, is this really happening!? Are they really standing right in front of me?” I was two rows back, by the way!
- “Wow. Chris Pratt is really tall”
- “Sylvester freaking Stallone! Are you kidding me!?”
- “Woah, Vin Diesel is a hunk and is great with an audience!”
My spoiler-free Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review
I'm not going to talk about the actual storyline too much, as I don't want to give a single detail away, so I'll just tell you how the film made me feel. Because like Mantis, I'm a hell of an empath.
I felt love.
I always forget how emotionally involved I get with Guardians of the Galaxy! This is the only Marvel movie that hits me right in the heart, in various ways, obviously. I felt love from friendships and other relationships. And that's all I'll say about that.
I felt happiness.
I laughed so hard that my cheeks hurt. I gained a new found love for Drax after this film. His role is much more prominent in Vol. 2 but also more comedic. There's something about that ridiculous belly laugh that gets me every time!
I felt pain.
I felt betrayal.
I felt a sense of longing.
Watching Peter Quill, as he longs to stay connected to his mother is difficult to watch at times. I really felt how he gave everyhing to hold onto every beautiful memory of her.
I felt anger.
I felt heartache.
I felt satisfaction.
I left the film feeling full and complete satisfaction. That's saying a lot considering the movie fails I've experienced this year. From the first line, to the last, my heart was involved. My only distraction was the perfect view I had of Sean Gunn and his facial expressions while watching the film. I promise you will love every second of this film. Not a single Marvel fan will leave disappointed.
I felt astonished.
Stay after the credits because…. it's Marvel, obviously.
See Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in U.S. theaters May 5!
