Bright colors of emission nebulae gleam into the universe, the desolate and hollow sound of the universe infiltrate the theater, and suddenly the faint whirring of a spaceship engine grows closer to the audience.
Ranked in the top-20 best movies of May, according to Movie Insider, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has taken movie theaters by storm, and I only anticipate this film to obtain more traction as we move forward in 2023.
Despite the fact that many movies and shows associated with the Marvel saga leave their audiences starstruck, the newest Guardians of the Galaxy film completely exceeds that expectation.
Just about every movie in the Guardians of the Galaxy series never seems to disappoint in regards to plot-line, castings, sets, and CGI.
Without fail, the third movie of the Guardians of the Galaxy has left both new and old fanatics in complete admiration of what Marvel is capable of.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was released in theaters on May 5, 2023. And since then, the movie has earned $289.3 million in revenue at the box office.
Subsequent to its release, the film in its entirety has acquired numerous astounding reviews from social media platforms such as TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And according to Collider, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to bring in hundreds of new Disney Plus subscribers, as it will be released for streaming in August of 2023.
Filled with absolutely remarkable cinematography, captivating subplots, and emotional scenes, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has completely changed the game for many Marvel movies to come.
Be prepared to go on more than just a spaceship ride, as director James Gunn takes you through yet another thrilling adventure with the fan-favorite Guardians.
To summarize the first film of the Guardians of the Galaxy series for context, we are introduced to Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt, who is the main character out of all three of the movies in the Guardians of the Galaxy saga. He is on the run from bounty hunters, but eventually finds himself with a group of misfits that he eventually becomes acquainted with.
In the second movie, we get a lot more information about each of the misfits. The overall plot of the film is that Quill and his team are hired by aliens to protect special batteries. However, the team finds themselves in trouble, and the aliens turn against them. Towards the end of the movie, we learn about Quill and his interesting past with his father.
Volume three of the series is the perfect followup to the previous films. Not only that, but it is the perfect closing storyline, as Marvel has stated that there will be no more additions to the Guardians of the Galaxy series after the latest movie.
Although Quill is the main character, we really get to dive deep into Rocket Racoon’s character, played by Sean Gunn. There is so much more depth and intensity that is added to the latest film because of Gunn’s character, and it is definitely the most dark and emotional storyline out of all three movies.
As heartbreaking as the third movie is, director Gunn was able to implement the other side character’s personalities accordingly to soften up the harshness of the plot.
Surprisingly, new characters are introduced into the third movie. However, just because they are new, the characters still follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline.
The audience is presented to Lylla, played by Linda Cardellini, who is Rocket Racoon’s otter friend from his past. And Master Karja, played by Nathan Fillion, is reintroduced to the Marvel storyline as a leader of the Sentries that work for Orgoscope, an intergalactic organization.
Because these personable actors and actresses have been apart in the latest film, their presence has attracted fans of the movies Scooby-Doo, Green Book, The Suicide Squad, and Uncharted. Because of this, Marvel as a whole has secured more attention to their movies and shows in the month of May.
There is no denying that every movie has its bad qualities, and there are definitely some worth mentioning in regards to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The film has so much excessive animal-cruelty and gore. And although the animal abuse is important to the backstory of Rocket Raccoon, I think the directors could have laid back on the inappropriate scenes.
It honestly seems like the screenwriters tried too hard to evoke emotion from the audience that they went to the extent of unrestrained animal abuse scenes.
Because this film will likely make your stomach lurch in disgust, I recommend kids under the age of twelve refrain from watching it. Even as a sixteen-year-old, I still found the movie quite revolting at times.
In terms of heavy topics revolving around the plot, the latest movie incorporates a lot of that aspect into the storyline. The concepts of losing loved ones, PTSD, and so much more are quite relevant to today’s society, and are intensely mixed into the film’s plot.
Because of these negative attributes, parents and guardians of children should think twice before watching this movie. And according to Common Sense Media, parents recommend that kids over the age of 13 watch this film.
Although the unfavorable aspects of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 should be put into perspective before watching, there are still some highlights that make this movie worth the watch.
For instance, that classic Guardians of the Galaxy humor continues to shine through, even throughout the third movie. The film also has some positive messages that are conveyed. An example being the promotion of the importance of friends and family.
Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3 still takes the prize for being the theatrical sensation that it is. The features that make this movie amazing completely transcend over the rather unappealing qualities. As provided by Google Reviews with an overall ninety five percent of watchers enjoying the film, eighty two percent from Rotten Tomatoes, and 8.3 of 10 stars from IMDb.
These ratings are astonishing, considering how recent the drop of the latest movie was. Therefore proving that Marvel never seems to fail when it comes to impressing their audiences.
Pulling from Rotten Tomatoes reviews, a majority of the critics state how director Gunn has a talent for mixing humor and heart, which I entirely agree with. And from Google Reviews, watchers rave about how rich every character’s backstory is.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 deserves all of the praise and attraction that it has been receiving from the Marvel fans.
The love put into the plot, talent that radiated off of every character, excellent cinematography, and enticing film sets are expected to leave you in awe with the final film of the Guardians of the Galaxy saga.
