Our favorite God of Thunder is back in the latest instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Bidding farewell to the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) turns his attention to a new foe – Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). With the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex girlfriend Dr. Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), they embark on an adventure of a lifetime.
The Thor movies have always been my favorites in the MCU. I think I like them so much because they tend not to take themselves too seriously and you know what what to expect. The newest addition boasted just that and I couldn’t wait to see what was in store.
I know I’m in the minority here, but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. With a vibrant color palette and a killer soundtrack, I felt like I was sucked into a cosmic universe. While I understand why people prefer a longer run time, I have to say that I prefer them shorter. My attention span isn’t what it used to be, so that was rather appreciated.
Gorr as a villain was brilliant. Bale’s portrayal was scary and haunting to the point where I wouldn’t want to see him standing over my bed in the middle of the night. The reintroduction of Jane was great as well and I loved seeing her become Mighty Thor. I only wish we’d had more scenes with both characters.
Overall, Thor: Love and Thunder was just what I was in the mood for. Wacky humor, crazy scenarios and out of this world fun. I cannot wait to see what will happen next.
