We’re almost there, folks. In just a few short weeks, we will be experiencing the very next film in what we now know will be the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy. The trailers for the upcoming Marvel Studios flick have been off-the-charts amazing, and if you were a fan of that ridiculous, goofy humor of that first one, this film looks to have that in spades.

But can Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 live up to the promise of the first film? Most importantly, does it continue the proud tradition of solid films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Screenings have been going on all around the web, and while no one has been able to post a full-on review, they have been able to share their initial impressions via social media.

Let’s start with our very own Nancy Tapia, who had a chance to check the flick out last night (also keep an eye out in the future for our interview with actress Zoe Saldana):

Of course, she wasn’t the only one who’s had a chance to check out the film. Some of the film journalist notables have also seen the flick. 

So on the whole, it sounds like impressions of the film are generally positive. Sure, certain critics may feel like it’s a step down from the first one, and maybe a tad uninspired and repetitive, but when all said and done, it sounds like Marvel and Guardians fans are likely in for a great time at the theaters.
