First 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Reviews Are In: 'Funnier Than the Original,' 'Tons of Surprises,' 'Helluva Tearjerker'
8 Actors Who've Played Multiple Comic Book Characters

A lucky few got an early screening of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" Monday night, and the general consensus is pretty positive.

Full reviews of the film are under embargo until April 24, but audience members were allowed to tweet about their first impressions, as long as they didn't give too much away.

The science-fiction/action film doesn't hit theaters until May 5, but judging from the following tweets -- which tease that Drax (Dave Bautista) and new character Mantis (Pom Klementieff) stole the show -- it's a can't-miss movie.

The sequel continues to follow the Guardians' adventure through the outer regions of the cosmos, which puts the strength of their newfound family to the test. Together, they must solve the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, J. Brunansky. A few weren't so thrilled with the film.
