This movie followed the same tone as the first but seemed to want to beat the first movie’s premise and outdo itself in as many ways possible. Still bright and shiny and peppered with humour, this outing started to feel like Marvel were just trying to up the problem stakes to interstellar levels. We all know Thanos is around the corner so, I guess, we have to see the teams up against seismic odds beforehand. But is there a time that a movie can be too like its comic book origin and start to fall flat?
Actors: Bradley Cooper
Until Lawrence shows up, this could easily have fallen into a dreary drama, but she sparkles on screen, most of the time. The dynamic between her and Cooper is generally humorous, and Tucker and de Niro are characteristically themselves (ie of similar type to other comedies they are in). However, it never really strays out of “safe” territory despite the darker themes it contains and sometimes feels a bit lost.
