Prepare yourself for a wild galactic ride when seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. Directed by James Gunn, known for directing the first two movies of this Marvel trilogy, the third installment brings a rad tad group of characters back in action for one last time.
The movie is centered on Rocket (Bradley Cooper). His past has been a mystery until a serious event at the beginning of the movie forces the crew to go on a journey to save Rocket’s life. Throughout the movie, you learn more about his past and it involves a new villain named the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji). Speaking of new characters, we are also introduced to Adam Warlock (Will Poulter) and the new Gamora (Zoe Saldana) who showed up in Avengers End Game.
This movie starts fast. It does not give you any time to get acclimated to the characters before the story begins. I didn’t mind that because I think Gunn wanted to use the movie’s complete runtime to fully develop this dark story. Are there jokes throughout the movie? Yes, but this isn’t your typical Marvel film. There are also some effects that might be too much for children.
This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time because you really feel how big the stakes are. I believe that the villain might be the best one ever in the history of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. The acting is also amazing by Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper. I had a great time watching this movie, but if you are someone that gets teary-eyed, bring a box of tissues. I would buy this for my movie collection and think you will to after you see it.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
