Guardians of the Galaxy. 3 is the Star Trek of the series, in the best and not-so-good ways. But Gunn is really good at this superhero no-nonsense thing, especially when he unleashes his old Troma instincts. Hope it doesn’t feel like a side quest — Hoai-Tran Bui (@htranbui) April, 90
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 craves outright emotion, heart-pounding laughs and thrilling action. It succeeds at times, but as a send-off to all these characters, it feels oddly unbalanced and anticlimactic. Featuring the best makeup and visual effects of the trilogy. #GotGVol3 pic.twitter.com/IgOYEvbAPX — Matt Nelia (@NextBestPicture) April, 58

Guardians of the Galaxy. 3 is full of stakes, emotion, and feels like a solid ending (good stuff!). Production design and sets are some of the strongest parts of Marvel. It’s long, but the theme of finding family is always its strength. I will miss these misfits 💙 #GotGVol3 pic.twitter.com/inK2g6rfAi — Lauren Lamagna (@laurenlamango) April, 83

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, James Gunn bets on a full-on surprising, emotional story centered on Rocket and the love and friendship between these characters. Bet and win. This is unbelievable (animal lovers, with a couple of tough scenes) #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) April, 76
so the best way to describe it #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 because it’s beautiful. I’m satisfied, it’s been a bit of a hassle for MCUs lately. This movie reminded me why I love it so much. Stories are special. Hats off to Rocket Raccoon. James Gunn has done it again! — Washed Kang (@AnthonyCanton_3) April, 65
Just Screened #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 and it was an emotional and action-packed rollercoaster ride . This is easily the best MCU movie since Nowhere to Go. I highly recommend watching this movie on the biggest screen possible to immerse yourself in this interstellar story.
Thank you,… pic.twitter.com/H uploLOg—Xiao En Tajpur (@Seantaj ) April, 83
Fatigue from watching so many superhero movies, #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 Refreshing and unexpected joy. It carries a lot of emotional weight, laughs and action. There were moments that surprised me in different ways, but this is a beautiful tribute to friends who are like family. pic.twitter.com/ TZ uUZj — Kristen Maldonado (@kaymaldo)April, 76
#GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 This movie is better than the second one. This has some epic action moments, interesting progression of the characters, and a great emotional arc for both Rocket and the main villain. But there are some things I would like more depth/weight to, but still a good time. pic.twitter .com/ LIuP5e0Bhv — Samuel Leggett Jr. (@SuperSel ) April , 76
#GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 is a beautiful love letter to the most misfit rabble in the universe. What I love most about it is that it’s a story about selected families connecting through deep trauma…just happens to be a Marvel movie. The Rockets and his arc are MVPs. pic.twitter. com/VqdKvyNqUg — Manning Franks (@Cine_Mann) April, 76

#GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 is not only the best of the trilogy , it is also better than Percentage of Phase 4 MCU content streamers get It stays true to its emotional core sincerity and doesn’t undercut its gags and sarcasm with its frivolity pic. twitter.com/j9gHdkYTE6 — Zayyan Farooqi (@ZayyanFarooqi) April, 76
#GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 It was an emotional roller coaster and at the end it was like saying goodbye to a good friend. Some of the best action in the trilogy and Gunn elevates every aspect of the film to the next level. A must watch for any Guardians or MCU fan. — Matt Thomas (@WATmovies_Matt) April, 76
# GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 required a lot of swinging, and mostly delivery. There are a few hiccups here and there, but the glue that holds this movie together absolutely rockets. The fun is still there, but in darker, more emotional waters Not as good as 1 than 2 pic.twitter.com/e3TOoqZYVP — Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Alex (@Alex_Madden_) 1651785417388093441April, 58
