I’m going to be bold and say this is my favorite film so far in the Marvel cinematic universe. I love all the films, GOTG Vol. 1 included, but this one was like, totally rad. Thanks to a complimentary advanced screening I got to experience the film in all its 3D glory a little early. I’m so excited to share my initial thoughts and maybe answer the important question: “Should I take the kids?”.
I strongly suggest leaving the kids at home for this one. You won’t want to miss seeing it in the theater, but the strong language in parts, combined with sexual innuendos leave me rating this as a film for a more mature audience. I think the PG-13 rating is more than warranted with several f-bombs and other “curse” words. Even if the language aspect doesn’t bother you there is a scene with an alien brothel. Though no acts are shown, and most young audiences won’t catch the innuendo there are scantily clad human looking women draped across men. The violence, blood, and gore factor are comparable to any Marvel film, with some vengeance and betrayal mixed in.
Will you be heading to the theaters tomorrow to see Guardians of the Galaxy? Share in the comments below, I’d love to hear who your favorite GotG character is. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 arrives in theaters May 5th!
