The sequel to “Guardians of the Galaxy” has yet to make its grand premiere in the United States, but it has been released early in other cities around the world. Reviews are pouring in, comparing “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” to the original. While promoting the movie, star Chris Pratt has also revealed his thoughts on Marvel’s rivals, the DC Comics-adapted movies.
Chris Pratt Likes DC Movies But…
This year is lined up with numerous superhero movies hailing both from the DC and Marvel universes. It’s not news that these two comic book companies have been rivals since time immemorial. Chris Pratt was asked about his take on the DC movies and given how frank the actor could be, he was actually quite honest about it.
The DC movies were distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and Pratt admitted that he liked all the Warner Bros. movies, thinking that they were really cool. However, he shared that there was one flaw with the DC movies and pointed out “Suicide Squad” to illustrate this, wherein the movie introduced too many characters in one go. Pratt added that Warner Bros. could have invested in a trilogy to develop the DC characters instead of introducing them and opening up their whole life’s stories in just ten minutes.
Is “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” Better Than The Original?
The sequel to “Guardians of the Galaxy” made its theatrical debut in Tokyo, Japan on April 10 and has started opening in other countries in the world this week. It will be making its premiere in the United States on May 5. With the diverse premiere dates, many were able to get a first look at the movie and give reviews, which were so far mixed but had more positive views.
Though many thought the movie was action-packed and still maintained the tone of the original, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” could not live up to the first film, which is usually what happens to sequels. The sequel reportedly lacked some of the qualities that made the first movie a great one and it was mainly its underdog charm. The sequel reportedly boasted too much computer-generated action scenes and special effects paired up with some new characters that some viewers found hard to grow fond of. Though “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” didn’t live up to the original, it was still a fun watch.
