Guardians of the Galaxy 3 REVIEW:

Finally, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is here and it gives me a mixed bag of feelings to review it. I’m not sure how to react to it but I feel content. The movie starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff is emotional. Given the fact, GoG 3 is the final part, it seems like a perfect ending.

After Tom Holland starrer Spider Man: Homecoming, no movies from the marvel cinematic universe impressed me until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It seemed like all the previous films were made for the sake of it and then comes James Gumn who just managed to deliver a commendable instalment.


The Guardians of the Galaxy team up when they find out one of the team members is in danger. Still reeling from the loss of Gamora, Peter Quill rallies his team to defend the universe and one of their own. It is a mission that could mean the end of the Guardians if not successful.

Highlights of GoG:

Action sequences: There’s a scene where the entire guardians are seen fighting with the bad guys and it is so well choreographed. Moreover, it is also well executed. Right from camera angles to the choreographing of the combat, everything seems to be very calculative. That’s not it, the background the makers used for this brutal scene is like a cherry on top.

Quill and Groot action sequence: This scene has to be one of the best scenes of GoG 3. My mind was blown when I saw Groot with ammunition. Usually, Groot’s superpowers are his strength and his roots. However, this time, we also realised he can shoot you with a gun too. The scene looks surreal.

Racoon’s backstory: I would say, ‘Finally’ that we have a backstory of Rocket. James Gunn nicely takes us back to the era when Rocket was a mere experiment. He tells us how the Racoon became the Rocket and his journey is simply emotional and overwhelming. I don’t want to spoil it for you, you should witness it on the big screens.

Character exploration: I think this can be the first time where I’m getting to see a different side of each character and it is heartwarming. Peter Quill shows us how he can go to any extent just to ensure his friends are okay. Drax is no more a destroyer but can be a softie too. Nebula has always been shown as the antagonist or someone who cares less. However, this time, she is kind and has a soft side too. Mantis is always the pushover but not anymore. She can take a stand and can take care of herself, she needs nobody.

Gamora who is from the past and has no memories is shown as a badass brutal woman but she can understand people’s emotions and feelings. Rocket, the badass and sarcastic racoon is actually innocent and kind-hearted. Call it character revelation or character exploration, James Gunn does a fantastic job with this.

The humour: One of the highlights of GoG 3 is the humour. You will thoroughly enjoy it’s one liners and even they eye rolls. Quill had an emotional moment with the past Gamora in one of the scenes. The way it is projected is hysterical. It is bound to leave you in splits.

The soundtrack: Once again, we got to hear a good soundtrack and I’m loving this mixed tape. The placement of the songs also plays a huge role and James Gunn knows exactly where and what songs are needed. Amongst all, Come and Get Your Love is still one of my favourites which we do get to hear in the movie. Admit it or not, it does have a separate fanbase.

Drawbacks of GoG:

The story: The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 story is well-knitted but can be a little overdramatic. James Gunn who is also the writer of the movie takes the cinematic creative freedom, unlike other MCU movies but gets a bit drag.

VFX: The VFX is usually the biggest USP of any MCU movie but it was not up to the mark in this last venture. You can see some flaws and some glitches in a few instances.

Star Performances:

Chris Pratt as Star-Lord is still a charmer and hopelessly in love with Gamora. However, this time, he keeps his lover boy’s side a bit low-key because a friend needed him the most. I like how a different side of his character is shown in this movie.

All this time, we have seen a soft yet strong woman, a kindhearted yet badass Gamora in previous instalments. However, the emotions are all gone in this part, given the fact, she comes from the past. Zoe Saldana gives an edgy side to Gamora and I totally like it.

Dave Bautista as Drax- the destroyer is actually Drax- the loving father. His soft side definitely touched my heart. Bradley Cooper who has lent his voice to Rocket is terrific. Though we didn’t witness his sassy side much, his innocence and soft side are a revelation for me. Vin Diesel as Groot is bang on whereas Karen Gillan as Nebula is perfect. I liked her new arm though.

Pom Klementieff amazes us with her strong side as Mantis, on the other hand, Chukwudi Iwuji impresses me with his grey character. He plays the role of The High Evolutionary with utmost cruelty and is a maniac.


Overall, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is emotional, delightful, hilarious and exhilarating. A well-knitted movie and a perfect ending for the Guardians. James Gunn makes films with creativity and love instead of just launching a product. Most of the movie is about Rocket but James also ensures to show the other side of each character. Though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the final part, there’s a lot more to explore.
