I noticed #ThorLoveAndThunder. It can not somewhat fit the visible or comedy bombast of Ragnarok, however Taika Waititi makes up for it with an emotionally mature Marvel film. It’s additionally very humorous (Natalie’s were given jokes) and contours some of the surprising visible sequences in MCU historical past.

#ThorLoveAndThunder will get higher when it isn’t looking to desperately recapture the magic of Ragnarok. Most of the humor does not land in addition to it did the primary time, however Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, & Christian Bale do the most efficient with it.

#ThorLoveAndThunder is a shiny spot in a wobbly Phase 4 as Ragnarok redux, right down to its goofy lark humor and its undercooked A-list superstar as villain.
