Even those with the lowest IQs can rise to the top in the land of the free, as this picaresque tale sets out to prove. But despite its incurably sweet hero and its fairly standard love story core, 'Forrest Gump' has a surprisingly dark-tinted view on recent American history - complete with racism, drug and child abuse, war and political assassination. There are some bitter tasting choices hidden among the soft centres.

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.
