The long-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 released in theaters on May 5, 2023, exactly six years after the release of Vol. 2. And boy was it worth the wait. This final installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy held nothing back. My sister and I went through a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the movie. We cried, we laughed, and we were entranced by the masterfully interwoven storylines and characters. 

The plot centers around the raccoon Rocket, who is on the verge of death after an attack by Adam Warlock, a Sovereign who seeks revenge on the Guardians for stealing from his people. Through numerous flashbacks, Rocket reveals his harrowing past of being experimented on by the High Evolutionary, an evil scientist corrupted by his unattainable desires for a perfect society. The Guardians, including Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and Groot (Vin Diesel) to name a few, strike out on a mission to find an override code to Rocket’s killswitch.

Throughout the quest, Quill attempts to rekindle his relationship with Gamora, who after the events of Avengers: Endgame has no recollection of her experiences with the Guardians. 

Filled with heaps of action, upbeat music, and drama-filled scenes, Volume 3 had it all. Perfect for Marvel fans or simply anyone looking for a heart-wrenching plot and witty humor, the Guardians will give you the thrill of a lifetime.

My sister Thérèse shared, “I loved every moment of Volume 3. The jokes were funny, the characters were lovable, and Rocket’s storyline pulled at my heart strings. 10/10 would recommend!”
