Sci-Fi: A diverse group of galactic heroes must contend with various family issues, including one's father and his growing and likely disastrous quest for more power.
Having earlier banded together to form an unlikely and highly diverse group of galactic superheroes now known as the Guardians of the Galaxy, half-human, half-star man Peter Quill (CHRIS PRATT), assassin Gamora (ZOE SALDANA), genetically engineered bounty hunter raccoon Rocket (voice of BRADLEY COOPER) and the hulking and seemingly indestructible Drax the Destroyer (DAVE BAUTISTA) have agreed to do a job for Ayesha (ELIZABETH DEBICKI), the leader of a highly advanced populace known as The Sovereign. With tree-like humanoid Baby Groot (voice of VIN DIESEL) in tow, they take on and defeat a huge monster, delivering valuable batteries back to Ayesha in exchange for handing over Gamora's mechanically enhanced and villainous sibling, Nebula (KAREN GILLAN) who vows to kill their father after she does the same to Gamora.

But with Rocket having stolen some of those batteries for himself, that results in Ayesha's forces giving chase through space. When all hope seems lost, most of those drone ships are destroyed in one instance by a mysterious figure who's later revealed to be Ego (KURT RUSSELL), Peter's biological father who he never met. Following the death of Peter's mother in the past, Ego -- a celestial god who has an empath, Mantis (POM KLEMENTIEFF), as his servant -- sent Yondu Udonta (MICHAEL ROOKER) to retrieve the boy. Instead, the smuggler and the rest of his Ravagers abducted young Peter and made him work for them. Ever since, Ego has been searching for his son and is overjoyed to meet him, especially since it appears Peter might be the missing link for Ego to expand his power even more.

While Peter, Gamora, and Drax accompany Mantis and Ego to his home planet, Rocket stays behind on the planet on which they crash-landed and works to repair their ship, unaware that Ayesha has sent Yondu and his crew, that includes the likes of Taserface (CHRIS SULLIVAN), Kraglin (SEAN GUNN) and many others, to capture the Guardians and return them to her. That doesn't go entirely as planned as Gamora manages to escape and eliminate Yondu's source of telekinetic power, all of which results in Taserface leading a mutiny. As they set out to deliver Rocket and Groot to Ayesha, Peter, Gamora, and Drax must contend with the discovery of Ego's master plan that doesn't look good for anyone but that celestial god.

If they're fans of the first film, that's a definite yes.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
