Guardians of the Galaxy Vol2 (2017) **REVIEW**

When the first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was released I must say I was a little hesitant to see it but I saw it and today I love it and can’t stop watching it. So when I heard a second one was coming I was really excited and I got the opportunity this week to go to the cinema and see it and I have to say, it’s absolutely amazing.

Volume 2 begins with the guardians protecting batteries from a monster who want to see it. We see little Groot fighting small rats because they ‘looked at him’ funny. They manage to kill the monster but Rocket also manage to offend the people who hired them to protect the batteries by stealing some of the batteries so now they are being hunted. Not only that, Quill’s father shows up. Of course Quill is a little hestitant to believe him but Gamora talks him into going with his father to get some answers.

So obviously Quill likes him and starting to admire his father. We get to see who his father is and what he is. Answers. But can the team handle it? In this film we get to see a new side of Drax and it’s downright hysterical, who knew he could be sensitive, funny and down to earth kind of alien. He befriends Quill’s fathers ‘pet’ Mantis and it’s really adorable. And to talk about Groot, he steals the show by being freakishly cute. I am hoping for the third film, we get to see Groot as a teenager, that would be epic. When Quill meets his real father, you will start to understand Yondu.

If you loved the first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ then you will love the second one. It will make you laugh til you cry and just cry. It got it’s funny moments and sad ones. They hit you right in the feels.

Actors: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sylvester Stallone, Pom Klementieff, Kurt Russell and many more.

Deepwater Horizon (2016) **REVIEW**

In April 2010 a disaster happened on an American oil drilling rig – an explosion, losing a lot of people and came to be the worst oil spill in U.S history. This is the story of that event.

Mike Williams working at an oil rig as an engineer, he was on a Skype call with his wife when the incident that was going to change so many lives happened. During the film we get to see how two men from the company who runs the rig where pressuring the workers to test and test and push the drill to the point it exploded. The workers were told to ignore the results of the test and only do one test and start drilling. So what happens? It explodes. Now it’s up the crew of the rig to send a S.O.S, lucky them in a way, when a ship who picked up some oil still where close and saw the explosion and started picking up survivors from the ocean as they where jumping in. We see the crew being brave, fighting own injuries to find survivors so they can be taken to the boats and to safety.

As I was watching Deepwater Horizon I felt their pain and need to survive through the actors who did a excellent job. It’s not easy to do based on real event movies, some just turn out to be God awful but this one was very good and the desperation and need to live where captured so amazingly from the actors. In the end of the film we get to see clips of the people who was lost in the accident and people who survived!

 

Actors; Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Douglas M Griffin, James DuMont, Joe Chrest, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich, J.D Evermore,  Dylan O’Brien and many more.

Fast and Furious 7 **REVIEW**

I know a lot of people are skeptic about this movie but I went to see it this afternoon and it was GREAT, just do awesome. In the end (no spoiler) they made the sweetest tribute to Paul Walker (Brian) – it will leave you tear eyes (if you’re sensitive to that, like me).

The gang – Toretto, Brian, Letty, Roman and Tej are back. After the London deal the big bad brother of Shaw is coming after them. First one to go was Han (he died in Tokyo Drift by people thought was a car accident) and Toretto goes to Tokyo to bring him back. They get help by Mr. Nobody and his team – Mr Nobody gives the team an offer to get and help a hacker who made a whole new program called Gods Eye. It’s a hacking program who hacks in to ALL cameras (traffic, phones etc) that are wired to net. You can find anyone with that thing. So the offer is – get the hacker out, bring the hacker to safety and get Gods Eye as help to find Shaw’s brother who’s hunting them where ever they go. And this brother is something else – he managed to get Hobbs down and in to a hospital bed. Scary guy – and the brother is played by the one and only Jason Statham. Now they have to find big Shaw and bring him down – and they have to it in their hometown. And the hacker – A GIRL and you will recognize her from Game of Thrones.

This was a whole new action movie for Fast and Furious and it’s just awesome. You won’t regret watching this and in the end was the best tribute to Paul Walker. His brother played him in some scenes but his face was computer made and I must say – you couldn’t see it, it was so awesome done. And yes I would recommend it for anyone who loves this franchise.

You see actors like Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel and many many more.
