Thor Love and Thunder Reviews
Thor Love and Thunder Review: Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as Thor, while his “love” Natalie Portman debuts as Mighty Thor, but its Christian Bale who steals “Thunder.” Thor returns for his fourth solo adventure with Thor: Love and Thunder, helmed by Taika Waititi.
The film follows the events of Avengers: Endgame – with Thor recovering from the death of Loki (Tom Hiddleston), disbanding the Avengers and finding purpose in life as he travels through the Galaxy with the Guardians of the Galaxy. (Thor Love and Thunder Review)
However, the God of Thunder’s fling with the Guardians ends when he learns that a God Butcher, formally known as Gore the Butcher, is taking out gods from various worlds.
To avenge his daughter’s death, Gore seeks revenge on the gods. His latest target is Thor. The God of Thunder learns of his plans and heads to Asgard on Earth to protect his people.
However, to their surprise, there is a new Thor in town – Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman). Struggling with her battle with cancer, she puts others first, protecting everyone while she is away with the Guardians. Lady Thor (oops, sorry, she hates to be called) aka Dr.
Jane Foster defends Mjolnir, to his surprise. Soon, the mighty Thor, Thor and the Valkyrie unite to fight Gore. The film follows the journey of the dreaded MCU villain and his battle with him.
Thor Love and Thunder
While Thor: Love and Thunder explores new territories with the Gods and Goddesses of Thunder and Gore, the film fails to live up to expectations. The film is completely based on convenience. The subplots change according to the convenience of the character, with many of the stories being traced simply by passing mentions.
Thor Love and Thunder is also presto- paced in the first half. While this serves as a positive factor in the morning, keeping the followership hooked to the word go, speed becomes a problem when it does not allow you to invest in the stories that unfold.
Thor and Jane’s reunion also falls flat because of the pace. Again, when Thor and Jane’s love story becomes the focus, the alternate half drags on.
On the acting front, Taika has greeted Thor’s funny side with flicks, much like Thor Ragnarok. But this time, it comes across as a bit silly and indeed forced at certain points. Chris follows Taika’s approach up to this point but does not offer anything new in the new Thor.
Natalie, on the other hand, breaks free from just being Thor’s gal to lead. She shines in numerous corridor of the film, especially when she’s trying out comedy and action. We need him more in MCU. Tessa Thompson continued her emotional run as the Valkyrie but unfortunately, she was sidelined.
The stylish part of the film is really Christian Bale. The actor, as always, makes the spear his own. Christian transforms into an violent and shocking spear with absolute ease. It’s clear from this that Marvel Studios is giving its villains the justified spotlight. Unfortunately, this spotlight is overwhelming the superhero.
Like Doctor Strange where Benedict Cumberbatch felt like a supporting actor — Thor Love and Thunder also puts Chris Hemsworth on the backfoot while Christian Bale is in thelimelight.However, also immaculately I’d want commodity further from Thor- and this time we had two! After Thor Ragnarok, with Thor Love and Thunder, If the movie is Thor Love and Thunder. Though the film has further power but lower thunder.
Bottom Line Thor Love and Thunder brings back rudiments of the first three stages while incorporating rudiments from the MCU’s new world. But Thor loses in this blend.
