Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a wonderful send-off for the members of this superhero team. The story of this adventure focuses mainly on Rocket – his backstory and how it leads to their current predicament. While the flashbacks are very hard to watch for animal lovers, thankfully it’s not graphic – but highly emotional at times. The present-day Guardians are just as fun as ever – action-packed and full of humor. Apart, they probably wouldn’t be successful heroes (or Ravagers), but they’re all better together. And I loved the path each character chose at the end. This was a fantastic roller coaster of feelings, thrills, and an exciting, unforgettable story. It actually demands a rewatch.
