'Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3': Marvel raises its head with the best James Gunn movie

Again, with more feeling. Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3, the last part of the marvelita trilogy commanded with James Gunn, arrives on the big Spanish screen on May 4 to say goodbye to the MCU in fluorine colors and with the most catchy music.

The space rogues commanded by chris pratt They return six years after the sequel with a bet that promises to elevate the goofiest humor, tremendous action and that emotion that suits Gunn’s misfit heroes so well. After his goodbye, the Marvelite capes and tights cinema will have to face a future devoid of those first heroes (creators and characters) who dared to innovate in a film genre that until then seemed like DC territory.

You will have to trust others outsiders so that they continue saving the universe led by Kevin Feige (or, rather, the marvelite multiverse). For now, let’s play Star-Lord’s (Pratt) Zune MP3.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3’ review


Guardians of the Galaxy It’s been that happy place to escape to when things got intense in the MCU; that galactic oasis of popular references and fluorine colors that has welcomed us on its dance floor; that catwalk of misfit creatures that have made us feel less alone while the avengers took themselves too seriously.

But be careful not to confuse joking with superficiality. It was enough to pause the Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) playlist to realize that we were facing the saga with the most heart in the MCU, a deep reflection on loneliness, the chosen family and the need to belong.

The third installment is more moving, hilarious and more ambitious, James Gunn’s ultimate love letter to his unlikely heroes, with Rocket’s origin story as the perfect excuse to delve into empathy, as well as the importance of accepting oneself (even if we are a raccoon) and the other (Star-Lord and Gamora).

The film doubles down, improving where its predecessors faltered. If until now the galactic franchise often neglected the action scenes in favor of the most hilarious dialogues, the volume 3 It has the best directed fight sequences in the saga, from the opening with Adam Warlock (Will Poulter) destroying Knowhere to the doctored sequence shot on the High Evolutionary’s (Chukwudi Iwuji) ship.

As for the music and trademark goofy humor, the film gets more ambitious, with standout moments like the raid on Orgocorp, in which the filmmaker meets up with the usual suspects like Nathan Fillion while Star-Lord regales us with a fun monologue-summary in the elevator. Gunn navigates firmly between dramatic and comedic tone, haunting us with Rocket’s past before cleverly lightening the plot in the present.

The only aspect in which a greater care on the part of Gunn is missing is the development of Adam Warlock. The director is satisfied with introducing one of Marvel’s most powerful characters, instead of delving into him as they did with Drax or Mantis in the previous films.

Fortunately, he makes up for it by giving his guardians a worthy ending (special mention to Rocket, whose past with Lylla the otter and her friends opens up before us to arouse our compassion), but also to Karen Gillan’s Nebula, the best arc of the series. saga), as well as giving the MCU one of its best villains, the High Evolutionary, a narcissist who has created a utopian society on Counter-Earth and with whom Gunn reflects on the search for non-existent perfection, the need to change the other to accommodate it to our life.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 It is James Gunn’s best film, as well as the bet with which Marvel raises its head as it has not done since Avengers: Endgame. It’s the perfect conclusion to a decade of galactic adventures, with a hopeful aftertaste. Because Gunn is not a cynic or a creator who annihilates protagonists looking for an easy impact; he prefers this saga to remain a happy place in the MCU, and go if you get it. We will miss you, Guardians.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3’ director

Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, the Russos… The MCU was created by the most imaginative minds, but the least likely choices. James Gunn had started as a writer for the B-movie tromeo and juliet (1996) and his first sound projects signing scripts would be the comedy Scooby Doo (2002) and the zombie bet Dawn of the Dead (2004).

Other undead would bring Gunn recognition in the direction with Slither: The Plague (2006), in which he would surround himself with the usual suspects such as Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks or Michael Rooker. In 2010, he would take his first step in superheroic nonsense with Super, indie film with Rainn Wilson wearing lycra, just the excess that the MCU needed when it signed him for Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).

A decade, a trilogy, and a Christmas special later (not to mention the Guardians’ scripts at avenging gatherings), the author is off to the Distinguished Competition to serve as creative director alongside Peter Safran: after The Suicide Squad (2021) and The peacemaker (2022), will kick off DC’s shared universe with Superman: Legacy (2025).
