Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3 is set to release by the end of this week. However, things are not looking good as per the latest reviews from Rotten Tomatoes. Read on to find out more.

Guardians Of The Galaxy returns to the MCU

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has taken the spotlight as the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and has already made headlines. Since its worldwide premiere, the movie has received a lot of buzz and attention from fans and critics alike.

Directed by James Gunn, Volume 3 is going to be the final that will reunite Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian, Vin Diesel (voice), Bradley Cooper (voice), and the ensemble. This is also the last time James will be directing a Marvel movie since he now takes the bossman chair at the DCU.

While it represents many lasts, and the emotional quotient is at its peak, it seems like the Rotten Tomatoes score has an altogether different story to tell.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 becomes the lowest-rated movie in the franchise

Vol 3 is the lowest-rated film in the franchise per Rotten Tomatoes

The Rotten Tomatoes score for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 set a new franchise record for the lowest score in the MCU trilogy.

The ‘world’s most trusted recommendation resources for quality entertainment’ has become an increasingly hot topic amongst movie fans over the last couple of years, as shown by reactions to what the site views as the best shows of last year.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 became the latest piece of that discussion upon its worldwide premiere, even with early critics declaring it one of the best projects that Marvel has released since 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.

The listing for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has the MCU threequel at an 80% critic approval rating, putting it in a tie with Captain America: The First Avenger for the 19th-highest rating in MCU movie history.

Unfortunately, this ranks it below both of the first two Guardians movies, with Vol. 1 coming in at 92% and Vol. 2 holding an 85% rating.

Comparing it to everything that’s been released in the Multiverse Saga thus far, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 ranks as the fourth-highest-rated movie since 2019.

Marvel hasn’t had an easy run with critics recently

Since the end of Avengers Endgame, the Marvel movies haven’t had the easiest run with Rotten Tomatoes or other critic outlets.

After the Infinity Saga ended on a high note with a 94% rating, the
second-highest in MCU history behind Black Panther, expectations for everything that followed have been through the roof.

The MCU has also never shied away from using comedy and action in its movies, although oftentimes, critics have seen those same plot devices used in many other Marvel Studios projects over the years.

And with the MCU fast approaching its 15th birthday with more than 40 movies and TV shows under its belt, critics appear much more ready to look past those aspects, some even docking points for movies being goofier or funnier.

Volume 3 of the Guardians of the Galaxy is highly anticipated and hopefully, the Rotten Tomatoes score won’t be too much of a concern as Marvel Studios looks to regain its place atop the fandom world.

The movie is set to come to theaters Friday, May 5th.
