Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder

Director Taika Waititi returns with vengeance on the fourth installment of Thor: Love and Thunder, leaving many fans astonished and perplexed.


“Thor: Love and Thunder” was released on the 6th of July 2022 with a runtime of one hour and fifty-eight minutes by distributing companies: Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures.
With an exciting extended super cast from Guardians of the Galaxy, Matt Damon, and Russell Crowe, “Thor: Love and Thunder” is targeted at both children and adults blended perfectly with a mixture of comedy, adventure, and action.
In this film, Thor enlists the aid of King Valkyrie and Might Thor after Gorr -The God Butcher played by Christian Bale kidnaps the children of New Asgard as a means to lore Thor to him and exterminate all living gods.
Christian Bale is an amazing actor and his character has such a tragic beginning to the film, probably one of the saddest beginnings to any Marvel movie I’ve seen ever seen.
I think this was a brilliant way to introduce a new villain into the story that we had never seen or heard of before by going straight into his past and reasons for his actions.
Though I wish we had received more information about the mysterious Necrosword rather than its constant barrage of ominous voices.
Or a little more action from Gorr himself killing a few Gods rather than the post events.
Gorr as a character has so much potential and room for exploration yet we never got to see any of it, which for me was a total let-down.
The comedy gags throughout this film are wonderfully paced, never get tiring, and will most likely leave you tearing up, especially the annoying goats lol…
I still cannot get over the moment with Zeus and Thor, it’s without a doubt the funniest and greatest scene of the film, though I do wonder if such a scene was even necessary considering that children would be present.
One thing I’ve noticed about Marvel films recently is the terrible CGI, and I say this with the utmost respect however, there has been a noticeable sharp decline in this department.
How is it even possible that Marvel Studios’ earlier work in the likes of Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011 has better CGI than today’s Thor in 2022?
Another element that takes away from this film being a complete ten out of ten is the way the film is structured.
We spend so much time on one scene that by the end of the scene we are in a new area, it almost felt like we skipped a few scenes, the buildup is nowhere to be found, and tension and suspense do not exist.
In all honesty, the film doesn’t live up to the hype. “Thor: Love and Thunder” feels more like just another ordinary day in the shoes of Thor.
No consequences, even the ending seemed to come out of nowhere, imagine we finally get the bad guy who reaches his destination but still can’t achieve his goal.
It lacks exponentially the element that makes Thor: Ragnarok one of the greatest marvel films of all time but hey, Marvel knows whether they make great movies or not, people will always come out to watch their movies.
So to end my review, overall, I would give Thor: Love and Thunder a 6 out of 10.

"You know, I was a little disappointed in what I'd done. I didn't think I grew that character in any way and I didn't think I showed the audience something unexpected and different."

Thor enlists the help of Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to fight Gorr the God Butcher, who intends to make the gods extinct.
