I don't remember hating this movie when I first watched it, but I was definitely underwhelmed. This edit breathes life into it and lets it shine as a fantastic sequel. Cutting down just the over the top jokes that go on too long really helped the tone of the movie. I couldn't really tell what was edited other than the intro, but I was much more invested this time around. Definitely recommend!

So, this was the movie that made me give up on the MCU. It was basically a stupid, soulless cash-in that was so busy trying to recreate the feeling of the first movie that it completely missed the point of what made the first movie one of the best movies in the MCU. I seriously haven't watched another MCU movie since it came out (lol, I know, a little dramatic, but I've also been busy, its not all drama). All that is here to put this in perspective. This edit is amazing. It trimmed out all of the BS and returned the movie to what it should have been, an exploration of the meaning of family and the question of the value of blood over found family. Simply amazing. I didn't really think the movie could be salvaged, but not only was it salvaged, it was pimped out.

As for the edits and the technical side of things, everything seemed seamless to me, I never noticed them at least, and that is all the technical info I have, so take that with a grain of salt.

Although I didn't mind the original, there was multiple things that didn't need to be included and this edit perfectly edits them out which improves the pace of the movie and improves the overall watching experience. I did notice what was cut but that's only because I have seen the original every day for the past couple months as my 2 year old son is currently obsessed with baby groot, but what was cut will not be missed and makes this movie much more enjoyable when I always have to watch it. So thanks rb for making my experience watching this movie much more enjoyable.

I'm a huge Guardians of the Galaxy fan. I thoroughly enjoyed Vol. 2 in theaters, but after watching it at home I felt like Gunn just went a little overboard in parts.

At first I was annoyed by the lack of a detailed cutlist for this edit, but I decided to give it (along with a few other MCU edits) a chance in the lead-up to Endgame. And I feel like this is the highest praise I can ever give a fan edit of a movie I've seen in its theatrical form many times:

I didn't notice 95% of what was missing.

That's right. This edit is a full 16 minutes shorter and other than the pre-credits sequence and a couple of jokes here and there, I didn't even notice, and I fell in love with the film just the same way I did when I saw it in theaters the first time.

As with several edits in recent years, I wish it was available in a larger, higher-bitrate file, but beyond that, this will probably be the only version I watch from now on.
