Thor: Love and Thunder world premiere has ended. The first review calls “Thor: Love and Thunder is a vivid and vibrant blast that delivers. Chris Hemsworth’s Thor remains a jewel in Marvel’s crown. Christian Bale’s Gorr is a killer boogeyman blending the campy and the creepy. Portman’s Foster and Thompson’s Valkyrie are a top-notch pairing. Crowe’s Zeus is chef’s kiss“
According to Variety’s Courtney Howard, Love and Thunder has an Appetite For Destruction & laughs. It’s totally rad! Taika Waititi delivers a subversive, irreverent spectacle. Great story, stakes & character-building. Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman, superb.Russell Crowe & Christian Bale slip easily into the world.
Taika brings you the most emotional villain of all time Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher, we can feel his pain inside and that makes Gorr take the decision “Kill all Gods”. the plot felt flat and stakeless. Not sure if that’s a Thor problem or an MCU-without-a-big-bad problem.
The film finds Thor on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who — to Thor’s surprise — inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjølnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit theaters on July 8, 2022.
