To be honest the film on its own would get 4 stars from me easily but I was let down by the 4K presentation, although the HDR colours are vivid and great looking, the film was only mastered at 2K even though they shot at 6k / 8K resulting in a loss in sharpness, its a let down when the Blade Runner remaster from the 80s looks a great deal sharper than this.
I would stick with the standard Bluray release unless you have a great OLED to really appreciate the colour.

I am NOT a comic book fan. I've read the odd one here & there. Watchmen was damn fine & so was the film. But comic books have mostly passed me by, Marvel superhero stuff entirely so. I've happily escaped the money-making franchise mushroom that has appeared over the past decade or so. But GotG looked like fun, and this pack gives me both so...
GotG on film is as shallow as a puddle. If there's any depth to the comic books, it's not shown in either film. Consequently as a non-reader, I'm sure there's back-story & stuff that I'm utterly unaware off. And I can feel it; that things I should know are missing. This is not a good start. For all that, GotG can, I think, be fairly described as an SF action-adventure romp. It's fun but without any depth. Characters are cardboard cut-outs at best, wholly one dimensional if not. It's crash, bang, wallop, knockabout fun with gags & comedy side-kicks. Nothing wrong with that. It's 4*.
I don't know what they thought were doing with GotG2. I don't know whether it's actually based on a genuine GotG story, or whether it was written for the film. But it's duff. The plot is dodgy anyway, but then they load 3 sub-plots onto a script that has a dodgy premise & would struggle to support one sub-plot. The chuckles diminish, the SFX are... only what we've seen before, the crash bang wallop keeps getting interrupted with dull philosophising / moralising, "Why do you hate me / why don't you love me / how can you be like this" shizzle that simply doesn't work in the shallow universe we see. Oh, plus it is ENTIRELY predictable. Meh.
Let's put it like this - 1 is worth having, 2 isn't really, 3 is currently shelved. And if it becomes unshelved, I won't be taking any interest, given what 2 was like. I can't remember the prices I saw when I added GotG to my Wishlist, but if the price for this pack is close to the price for 1 alone, then buy the pack; you might as well. If it's not... 1 is worth spending a few quid for; 2 isn't.
Is it as good as the first one? Yes, in many aspects, but much of the pleasant surprise of this crazy universe and the 80's-music that was there with the first movie, is gone.
The story is okay, I didn't particularly like the meandering plot around Peter's father Ego . Then again, it doesn't matter because its all about friendship, great visuals and 80's tracks .
When possible we buy the 3D version and this one looked fantastic on our reasonably high-end OLED screen.
Movie is 5 out of 5. 4K Blu Ray and Amazon service equals zero stars.
It is wonderfully escapist, with great imagination and humour to carry us along. It is corny in places, but then that is something one might expect for a film based on a premise like this one.
I specifically wanted the 3D version, and it does not disappoint, adding that extra dimension to the presentation of the story. It never felt intrusive and none of us had any headaches or eye-strain.
The surround sound is excellent on our Z906 system, taking us into the heart of the action.
