‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’ Is Being Called the ‘Best Marvel Film In Years’

The third and final Guardians of the Galaxy installment is getting rave reactions from Marvel fans.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 takes one last trek through space. On Thursday night (April 27), the Marvel Studios film had its world premiere in Hollywood, with viewers leaving both saddened and enthralled at the end of the saga. Some even called the film, which stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Will Poulter, Karen Gillan, and more, “the best Marvel movie in years.”

Den of Geek editor David Crow echoes the sentiment, tweeting that GOTG3 “had a… surprisingly wistful heart,” also celebrating James Gunn’s return to the MCU.

Next Best Picture editor complimented Marvel’s eye for detail, calling the “production design and set pieces are some of Marvel’s strongest.”

In the new James Gunn-directed film, Marvel states that the “beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere. But it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life — a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”

GOTG3 is the latest MCU Phase 5 film, which will be followed by The Marvels, Captain America: New World Order, Thunderbolts, and Blade. Sprinkled in between these theatrical releases are Disney Plus shows Secret Invasion, Loki, What If…?, Ironheart, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and Daredevil: Born Again.

GOTG3 comes to theaters on May 5. Read more takes on the film below.
