    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

    ★★★★

    Rounding off a series/trilogy in an appropriate and suitable fashion is always going to be hard, especially when your core players have been shuffled somewhat.

    Whilst it retains some of the joie-de-vivre of the previous 2 films, it feels like a facsimile of a GotG film at times.

    It is all impressively done, however the unfolding of the story left me with a lot to be desired and it felt more like the pilot of a TV series than a feature film, leaving me wanting to dig deeper into it all.
