Yes, yes, I did say I was done with the MCU, but I still went to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Mainly because I didn’t want to end my MCU experience with the shit that was Love and Thunder. And boy, am I glad I didn’t.
In short, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a great movie. It is easily one of the best movies (Not only among MCU) I have seen in the last many years. And a perfect send-off to the Guardians after all these years.
The movie is part farewell to the Guardians and part Rocket Raccoon origin story. The origin story part is quite emotional and explains many things. The rest of the movie is great, too and there are many special moments. The guardians themselves are hilarious, especially Drax and Mantis.
My favourite characters were Rocket and Cosmo. I don’t even know where Cosmo came from. The first I saw of her was in the holiday special, which itself, was quite average.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is easily the best MCU movie I have seen till now, better than Infinity War and Endgame. My recommendation is, even if you are not an MCU fan, go watch the movie. You don’t need too be aware of the wider MCU either, the movie stands well on its own.
I will miss this series going forward.
