I have to confess that I didn’t expect such a joyful, lively creative blockbuster movie, to show up anytime soon. But James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, much progressive in its ideological undertones and almost rarely conventional in its aestheticism, turned out to be a complete surprise of this summer. Now, it seems as if the innovative aesthetical sparks (or ironically, the explosions) in the prequel film made a real “blast” here.
Diverse and multi-dimensional in lights, colors, shapes, sizes and movements, Gunn creates a magnificent unique universe of extravaganza wherein various characters of every figure and physique, type and genus dwell; evoking the retro sci-fi works of the 80s and 90s but surely not at all in a regressive sense.
Could we ever asked a contemporary CGI-based action to be infused with this amount of high-spirited humor and light-footed musicality, to deal with many aspects of the artistic experimentation in a genuine way? Well, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the answer!
