Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023)


A love of animals, reveling in music burners, depraved – and, let’s face it, sometimes quite childish – humor, and last but not least, a weakness for losers with a heart in the right place. You would find so many points of contact and common themes which I would note over a beer with James Gunn across his work that it is often unbelievable. It’s no coincidence that I often feel with him as if he makes movies tailored to me.

While I deal with similar ideas much more with the Suicide Squad, for example, the trio of Guardians of the Galaxy will be significantly more universal for many people (by God?). This is the third part of the series, whose characters also appeared in two Avengers or the fourth Thor, so the viewers enjoyed themselves with them and are much closer to them than they were after two hours to Rat Catcher or Bloodsport. Gunn knows this all too well

The level of gimmicks and the overall state of VFX across Hollywood has come down quite a bit in recent years. But filmmakers like Gunn have always valued the work of thousands of people on computers, so going into the beginning of production on the third Guardians, he first shot with his brother and a few other friends/actors the scenes that he knew would need the most time to perfect the effects.

From the first seconds, when a group of raccoons in a cage appears on the screen and a frightened little Rocket sticks out among them, it’s damn well known that the creators have paid great attention to every animal detail in this regard. This is essential for such a film because with effects at the level of the Last Planet of the Apes, such a scene literally comes to life before your eyes and immediately seems much more emotional. Compare to the third Ant-Man and it’s like heaven and bagpipes.

However, if the first few seconds in the cinema put hope in my veins, the next ten minutes felt like Christmas morning – that is if Christmas morning included your friend being nearly killed by an unknown flying madman, the rest of the party barely able to fend off the attack, and you still having to head out with a hangover a potentially suicidal mission to save a dying partner’s life. The race against time begins, and James Gunn boldly sets off on what is arguably the most emotional comic ride we’ve seen yet.

As I already hinted in the impressions – that this time it will be extremely sad, and personal, and that Rocket the raccoon will steal most of the film for himself – it becomes apparent from the initial flashback and the subsequent walk around the square in Knowhere, which the Rangers have made their home base. Accompanied by Creep by Radiohead, Rocket and I outline the overall atmosphere and tone of the film, refresh who is who, establish that Peter still hasn’t gotten over the death of his love Gamora (the new one hates him) and before we know it, there’s a frantic Adam Warlock with the face of the still unlikable Will Poulter, who, fortunately, Gunn makes similar to the oven as he has been in most of the other films so far. His casting immediately makes more sense.

The race against time begins, and James Gunn boldly sets off on what is arguably the most emotional comic ride we’ve seen yet.

The plot as such is quite straightforward. Warlock has been dispatched by the High Evolutionary (Peacemaker’s somewhat theatrical Chukwudi Iwuji), who created Rocket years ago through cruel experiments, and now wants him back so he can study his brain. But in the initial attempt, Rocket is badly injured and the Guardians have to go across the galaxy to find a cure in short order, while Warlock and his mother are still after them (Elizabeth Debicki reprised the role of the two).

In addition, we continuously return through flashbacks to Rocket’s youth, when we watch him either in the company of a ruthless and sometimes clueless creator or on the contrary, his other animal friends. If watching the whaling in the second Avatar made you cringe, these passages are quite similar and Gunn is quite clear in his opposition to any kind of animal experimentation, which, unfortunately, is not forgiven not only by the villains in his film but also extends to reality. However, at least it makes High Evolutionary’s villain worthy of the third installment, who, despite certain brevity of his behavior, inspires contempt, and when you compare accounts, you feel a hell of a lot of satisfaction.

At the heart of everything, however, is the dynamic between the individual heroes, as always. It mostly stood and fell, and since this is the umpteenth film where Gunn the screenwriter had to juggle a large number of characters, you probably won’t be surprised that he manages it even more playfully than ever before. In this way, everyone has time to argue with everyone, meanwhile, the team splits up and reassembles in various ways during the film, and although this time with the perspectives it’s not as crazy as in Suicide Squad, some ideas either repeat themselves (we’re going to save you -> we saved with themselves, now we have to save you for a change) or here they adorn themselves to perfection.

Although the film has a surprisingly serious and dramatic structure, which may not suit children as well as adults this time, of course, it also has a lot of forums, allusions, or other funny moments that constantly lighten the situation, and even in moments where you don’t expect it at all. Gunn probably won’t change in this direction, and those who haven’t liked his style of humor to this day will be out of luck this time as well. But on the positive side, unlike the cheesy Christmas special, or perhaps compared to Waititi’s humor in the fourth Thor, Gunn has found a relatively reasonable balance in the Guardians trio, so it never feels stilted or annoying.

What is great and, in my opinion, even better than in the previous works, was the work with music. Here, Gunn pulls out some dusty hits from the eighties and nineties, intersperses them with a few more well-known hits, and gradually serves it all up in a style that is neither innovative nor revolutionary, but again, I have to say that with him the director has found the perfect balance between “there’s not much ” and “it’s a bit too much”. I also appreciate the camera work and the visual aspects of this two-and-a-half-hour flick, when every action has its memorable moments, is well-pointed, physical, and most importantly, has a justification in the story. In the finale, there will even be a real treat in the form of a one-shot with the entire team. Pampering on into!

Two things could be a slight disappointment here. While the first two-thirds successfully refrain from emotional blackmail and all the emotions in them are organic and based on the essence of what is happening on the screen, in the last one the script starts to push the saw maybe too much, which may or may not put you off – it will probably matter here, how much you give in to it.

Well, the other one is Adam Warlock or rather some side plot lines that seem to be unnecessarily extra in the film and do not serve the story as much as the rest. Fortunately, the film has an incredible flow and minimal, if any, dead spots, so it’s not like Warlock is outright in the way or not entertaining. He just didn’t have to be there at all. And that also applies to another aspect of the finale, which I don’t want to spoil here. However, within the overall impression, these are minor defects in beauty,

Play the trailer I don’t want to wave at you here that the movie has a heart. Both number one and number two had a heart. But I’m not afraid to say that the third film works best with this one by its very nature.

In short, it is a big touching finale, where none of the characters is certain of anything, at the same time it is a pleasantly closed story, in which the knowledge of everything the guards have been through is sympathetically worked on, a lot of lines are closed, there are nice cameos, and anyway the ending was tear-jerking, or even on the border of kitsch, at the end James Gunn pulled it all off in a way that no other Marvel movie has been able to do for a long time, and I lovingly beat him with a winch. So I’m pretty clear about the best part of the trilogy, at the moment all that’s left is to decide how many times I’ll have to see it on the big screen. However, you should also go for it at least once.
