Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Early Reviews:
According to early reactions from a handful of critics who attended the European premiere at Disneyland Paris, the third installment in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise promises to be a “brilliant end to a brilliant trilogy.” Fans of the series are in for an emotional rollercoaster, as the movie reportedly delivers a satisfying conclusion to the stories of their favorite cosmic misfits.
Digital Spy’s Ian Sandwell praised the movie, saying, “‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ is a brilliant end to a brilliant trilogy. It’s very funny, and emotional and everybody gets their stand-out moment. Will Poulter’s Warlock is a terrific addition, yet the focus is rightly on telling a satisfying end for the Guardians. Gonna miss them.”
Movie Zine’s Alexander Kardelo warned that “nothing can prepare you for all the emotions,” especially when it comes to Rocket Racoon’s “beautiful and heart-wrenching origin story.” Kardelo stated, “‘[Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’] is, more than ever, Star Wars as a stoner comedy. Lovable weirdos, big Marvel action, and goofy jokes. But nothing can prepare you for all the emotions. Rocket Raccoon’s origin story is beautiful and heart-wrenching.”
