Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3

Marvel Studios and Director James Gunn bring back the fun, heartfelt, and pure comedic genius in Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Featuring our favorite heroes of the galaxy, the film was released on the 5th of May 2023 by distributor Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, receiving a barrage of positive reviews throughout all social media platforms.

The premise continues from where we last left off with a broken-hearted Peter Quill played by Chris Pratt, who’s still reeling from the loss of Gamora when an unexpected Adam Warlock starts causing chaos – resulting in Peter Quill rallying his team to defend the universe and one of their own – a mission that could mean the end of the Guardians if not successful.

Now that you’ve gotten the gest of things, let’s see what makes Guardian of the Galaxy vol. 3 a blockbuster worth watching – it’s not even up for debate.


Though the premise focuses on Peter Quill, let’s get one thing straight – this film is very much about our gun-blazing raccoon – Rocket.

From the beginning, this movie tells you exactly what’s going on, the Guardians are in shambles, Peter is drunk most of the time, completely wasted, and unavailable to help anyone let alone himself – the rest of the group comes off fatigued nearing their wit’s end.

That’s when Adam Warlock played by Will Poulter comes in and stirs things up – turning a modestly calm film at the start into one hell of the rollercoaster that will leave you either tearing up from uncontrollable laughter or tears of despair from Rocket’s backstory.


In my case – I couldn’t stop laughing from happiness and joy. This film hit all my weak spots, ticking all the right boxes, from its comedy gags, emotional baggage, lore, cinematography and so much more.

I haven’t had so much fun watching a Marvel film in such a long time, not to mention a compelling villain that is both captivating to listen to and interesting enough to simply watch. With that Ladies and Gentle, I welcome you all to – the High Evolutionary played by Chukwudi Iwuji.


Not only is he a mad scientist determined to right the wrongs of the universe, proclaiming himself to be a god, but, in the same breath comes a cruel, and cunning man that is willing to use anyone and anything to further proceed with his mission.

As soon as he appears on screen you can’t help but be captivated by his demeanor and approach, which displays a certain nonchalant arrogance but then you quickly come to your senses when you realize the cruelty that comes with the man.

I suggest animal lovers close their eyes to some of the things that are shown during the film, it gets rather dark and creepy quickly when you first meet the rest of Rocket’s friends, Lylla the Otter, Teefs the Walrus and Floor the Rabbit – animal cyborgs that have been assimilated by the High Evolutionary.

So even though the film mainly focuses on Rocket, a lot of his screen time is shown within flashbacks – where we get to watch and see Rocket’s entire life play out on screen, leading to the events that shaped and made him who he is today.

Even with that being the case, James Gunn makes the right decisions in focusing on the remainder of the group exploring their growth and how far they’ve come together.

This is elaborated perfectly on The High Evolutionary’s Ship when Drax is told something to hurt his feelings and the results afterward could be felt echoing throughout the room.

What sets Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 apart from the rest of its previous installments is the amount of detail and growth within its characters.

For the first time, I can say without hesitation that the characters such as Drax and Mantis felt real, not scripted – their dynamic with one another within the group is further highlighted and focused upon for every single member.


It all may seem like fun and games but when things get real The Guardians take no hostages lol… the irony.

Believe it or not, each one of them plays a pivotal role within the group which has allowed them to survive together beating all the odds, no matter what is stacked against them, however, over time they had lost sight of this, nearly destroying themselves in the process.

In conclusion, to end the review, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a romanticized love letter saying goodbye to all the fans that have followed and supported the Guardians all this time but not without leaving you with questions that need answers such as – how is Rocket smarter than his creator, or was The High Evolutionary ever the creator of Rocket in the first place?

I give Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 a 5 out of 5 rating.

“I thought the second movie was pretty emotional, but it didn't have the effect that this one has had on audiences,” adding, “...even though there's a lot of comedy in it like the other two movies, it doesn't play as a comedy.”

Still reeling from the loss of Gamora, Peter Quill rallies his team to defend the universe and one of their own – a mission that could mean the end of the Guardians if not successful.
