The third and final installment of James Gunn’s beloved MCU franchise delves deeper into the backstory of its witty raccoon pilot, wrapping up character arcs and bringing their journeys to a surprisingly satisfying close despite the MCU being in relative disarray. We learn the origins of Bradley Cooper’s Rocket through a series of captivating flashbacks, as a weapon experiment conducted by the new bad guy named The High Evolutionary – an intergalactic geneticist on a mission to create the perfect species.
Rocket’s intelligence surpasses his creator’s, and he now seeks to protect others from the horrors he witnessed. In this post, we’ll review Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and we have also provided some tweets from the movie fans and critics in between the post.
Due to its extensive use of flashbacks and present-day scenes showcasing a great deal of brutal cross-species experimentation, the 150-minute film feels much longer. Though Rocket’s flashbacks are more endearing than Disney’s recent popular green IP from Star Wars, the images of terrified, bleeding creatures and their enormous, glistening eyeballs leave a lasting impression on the audience and a sudden, compelling urge to go hug the animals in our lives.
A fan posted a Tweet praising the movie character The Rocket Racoon.
“This story has been yours all along. You just didn’t know it.”
He is LITERALLY the main character. Bradley Cooper officially deserves to be up there with Reynolds, RDJ, and Jackman in terms of perfectly cast CBM characters!

The CGI animals in the flashbacks are the most vibrant and lifelike we’ve seen in a long time, even outperforming Disney’s 2019 remake of The Lion King and the hideously rendered realistic aquatic life in Disney’s upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid. The upsetting scenes of animal torture elevate Volume 3 above standard superhero fare and into the realm of poignant storytelling, which has been unusual for Marvel recently. After all, it appears that multiple PETA violations were the way to go.
A fan posted a meme about the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, while the other fan posted that the Rocket Racoon flashbacks were emotional

After the loss of his love Gamora, Peter “Star Lord” Quill, now drowning his sorrows in alcohol, must navigate her alternate version’s amnesia regarding her past affection for him and never-ending snark. Along with Karen Gillian’s perpetually irritated Nebula, Dave Bautista’s playful numb-skull Drax, Pom Klementieff’s innocent Mantis, and Vin Diesel practically playing himself as gym-bro Groot, they set out on a mission to enlist the help of the Ravagers to rescue Rocket.

Less CGI Use In The Guardian Of The Galaxy Volume 3
When observed focus fully it is clear that the movie Guardians of the galaxy vol 3 has used less CGI. While Gunn fills the film with explosive action sequences and battles, the script’s muddled logic and scattered backstories for minor characters cannot be hidden. However, unlike the recent underwhelming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Volume 3 uses Gunn’s signature absurd practical effects and restrained CGI, as seen with the fleshy production design and costumes of the OrgoCorp HQ.
Despite its flaws, Volume 3 delivers an emotional conclusion by highlighting the bond between its titular Guardians as a family that transcends blood relations. As we bid a tearful farewell to the “bunch of idiots standing in a circle,” the talking tree’s sudden expansion of vocabulary feels like the only overarching sentiment resonating through the sniveling audience (which feels all the more special given that this is the first time the audience truly understands Groot).
The MCU has stumbled in recent endeavors, leaving fans yearning for the old magic. With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we’re reunited with beloved characters we’ve known and adored for years, signaling a necessary shift away from lackluster experiments and underwhelming debuts. The film delivers a rare emotional payoff that is unlikely to be replicated in this franchise shortly.
