Lizy Stubbs, Opinions Editor

May 31, 2017

The movie explains plot holes, such as why the Guardians gang was able to hold the infinity stone in the first installment without dying, and delves deeper into the characters we only got a glance at in the first film, making them more lovable and more human.
