Thor: Love and Thunder Movie Review

Tags : 

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.

Why did I come to this movie again?

Chris Hemsworth. And it looked funny.

Also, I needed a break. Life has thrown a couple of curve balls at us since the beginning of the year, and I wanted a little escape. So I went into this looking for silly humor and a lot of punching things.

Characters

Most of these characters are old friends, so they were pretty solid. Jane felt a little forced with the ultra silliness, but when you’re in that situation who knows how you’d act, right?

I thought Christian Bale did a great job as the bad guy. They gave him just enough back story that he didn’t seem ridiculous. Although I’m not sure I was totally on board with his final decision.

Did I care what happened?

Yes. I know most people don’t put much merit in Marvel movies, but Thor has lost a whole lot throughout the films, and I have a soft spot for the guy. And it’s not because he’s both super hot and funny. His character has gone through the ringer multiple times, and I’m always routing for him.

Although the other gods didn’t do much for me. There could have been more killing there. Just saying.

Plot Holes

It’s a superhero movie, so there are of course plot holes. You always have to suspend several layers of disbelief, but they did a decent job of covering the big issues. I don’t remember anything throwing me out of the story, so that’s probably good.

How many times did I yawn?

None. The hubby drifted off a few times, but that’s normal.

Cool Factor

This film felt extra CGI heavy, which I didn’t love.  Other than that, I enjoyed it.

The End

As I said above, I’m not sure I bought the bad guy’s final decision. Other than that, nothing surprised me.

Spoiler: Poor Thor can’t catch a break. He’s like Wil’s mom in Stranger Things.

Overall Enjoyment

I went in expecting to laugh and be entertained. I totally got that. I’d watch the film again, but couldn’t say I liked it more than Ragnarok.
