Highly Suspect Reviews: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Movie Review


The Guardians return, but it’s been awhile since their last caper (unless you count the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special). Dynamics have changed in the group; they’re less constantly sniping at each other and more like best friends these days. They’ve made their home the makeshift planet of Knowhere (out of the head of a dead god). But Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is not doing so good. Knowing Gamora (Zoe Saldaña) is out there somewhere but no longer is the same Gamora whom he had a relationship with, has been driving him to drink…a lot. But he is broken out of his downward spiral when a golden-skinned being (Will Poulter) crashes into their complacency and is narrowly run-off in defeat, but not before he causes serious damage to his target, Rocket (Sean Gunn and Bradley Cooper). Discovering that something about his creation involved a doohickey that will kill him if traditional methods are employed to save his life, the team must gather their resources to discover Rocket’s origin and defeat the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji) who is very protective of his IP…which is to say, Rocket. Along the way a very annoyed Gamora will have to work with them along with other old friends. Chris, Wright, and Marco give their reviews and refuse to admit whether or not they may have cried a little bit.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas in 1992 where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this community of critics. While Brian eventually followed his heart to a new family, Chris continues on with a cast of colorful folks from all over the country (and a few others). You can also check out Chris in his videocast, along with Martin Thomas and Danni Danger, that One Of Us does with our friends at Bell of Lost Souls: Crossover Event. He also regularly guests on the video game website Rage Select. Follow Chris on Twitter and Facebook and check out his Amazon Wish List.

Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.
