Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
5 May 2017
Behind the Scene and other Major Plot Points
According to the Visual Effects Artists, Ego’s planet comprises a trillion polygons, and is considered to be the biggest visual effect ever made.
“Groot Version” of the script
As Groot only communicates with the phrase, “I am Groot”, in different inflections, James Gunn created a “Groot Version” of the script for he and Vin Diesel, which contains each of Groot’s lines in English.
In the Guardians of the Galaxy comics, Taserface is a warrior from the cybernetically enhanced race known as The Stark. The Stark are a race that found Iron Man technology that accidentally crashed on their homeworld, and as a result, worship Tony Stark, a.k.a Iron Man as their god.
Character of Mantis
In the comics, Mantis is human, and acquired her skills by living with the Kree. James Gunn chose to make her an alien in the film, because he wanted Peter Quill to be the only one of the main characters to come from Earth.
As per Karen Gillian
In an interview for the film, Karen Gillan explained that Nebula “is a pretty angry woman, with some daddy issues and that, in the second movie, we’re going to start to see how much pain her father actually caused her, and we’re going to delve right into the relationship with her sister Gamora. I think we might even feel a tinge of sympathy towards her this time.”
The idea of self-contained minds spontaneously appearing into existence is called “Boltzmann brains.” This is a metaphysical conundrum raised by quantum mechanics, and concludes that in a universe that exists forever, you are more likely to be a “Bolzmann brain” hallucinating reality than a real being.
As per Chris Pratt (workout regime)
Chris Pratt said that he found the workout regimen for his shirtless scene much easier compared to the first film, because he was already in great shape going into the film. For Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Pratt was sixty pounds overweight when he started working out. For this film, however, he said he had maintained his buff physique acquired from the first film.
As per James Gunn (Opening Flashback Scene)
According to James Gunn, Kurt Russell was de-aged for the film’s opening flashback (set in the 1980s) by visual effects company Lola VFX, in what was a “long, painstaking process that took many, many months to accomplish.” He continued, “I know Lola did Michael Douglas, and I think they did Tony Stark and Steve Rogers as well. They’re the best at what they do, and keep getting better.”
In an interview, James Gunn said that..
most of the questions will be answered in this film that remained unanswered in the first.
As per Chris Pratt ( Michael Rooker’s shirtless scenes)
Chris Pratt said that he thought Michael Rooker has the best shirtless scene in the film, because he said Rooker’s shirtless scene is actually about showing vulnerability and developing Yondu’s character, you learn something about him in the moment, but his own scene was just to show off his body, and did not really add anything to Peter Quill.
As per James Gunn (Set up for next movie)
James Gunn clearly stated that this sequel would not set up Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
As per James Gunn (Character of Nebula)
James Gunn went on record in an interview that he wants to give Nebula her own spin-off movie.
As the Ravager ships light up the sky with fireworks at Yondu’s funeral, his burning ashes form a trail that eventually reshape into his trademark arrow trail.
RT/Meta Critic Review
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.
