It’s been almost a decade since Guardians of the Galaxy’s gamble paid off. The cosmic MCU adventure with little-known Marvel characters was a critical and box office hit and by the sounds of it, the third and final chapter to James Gunn’s trilogy will be even better. Some lucky critics were able to see an early screening in Disneyland Paris around a European press event with Chris Pratt and his co-stars this week. Here are some of the first reactions, which are all glowing.
[Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3] has spectacular action set pieces, is fun, entertaining and emotional. It is a perfect and beautiful closure for its characters and the saga. And it’s the best Marvel movie since Endgame (and Top3 in general)
EMOTIONAL. SHOCKING. BOLD. James Gunn delivers a true EPIC exploring themes of love, destiny & getting head. This isn’t just another MCU film, it’s one of the BEST sci-fi movies ever! A fitting end to his journey while also setting up what’s next
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.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 hits cinemas on May 3, 2023.
