Thor: Love and Thunder Review
DON’T BE LOOKING FOR ANY MARVEL SPOILERS HERE, FOLKS.
Thor, the God of Thunder, and now God of love as well? That is the question that the new movie, Thor: Love and Thunder explores.
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) seems to be out of his funk (with the help of his Guardians of the Galaxy friends). He is ready to get on with his life, right some wrongs, and shake his dad bod.
Thor and his adorable rock friend Korg (Taika Waititi) are swept up in an adventure when Gorr (Christian Bale) becomes a god killer with the help of a special sword (they don’t call him Gorr the God Butcher for nothing).
When Gorr descends into New Asgard with his scary shadow monsters to steal the village’s children, Thor, Korg, and King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) fight valiantly beside an unlikely newcomer. Dr. Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is Mighty Thor now and leading the fight with Thor’s former hammer, Mjolnir.
Fanboys will be crying foul over Jane Foster being Thor. Let ‘em cry. They are all just big toxic crybabies anyways. Mighty Thor injects some much-needed heart into the Thor franchise. The sisterhood that develops quickly between Mighty Thor and King Valkyrie should be embraced and admired.
Thor is a silly god, so he deserves a silly movie* and director Taika Waititi (along with writer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson) serves up a god-sized laugh fest.
Thor: Love and Thunder is also a very honest movie about the love of self and others and death. This movie may surprise MCU viewers. Our narcissistic hero can learn to love and be humbled.
Of course, you must stay until the very end of the movie. There are two end caps that are EXTREMELY exciting! Thor will be back and it’s going to be exhilarating!
*We need to talk about the goats. Seriously.
About Thor: Love and Thunder
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Love and Thunder” finds the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a search for self-discovery.
But Thor’s retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.
Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late. Directed by Taika Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Jojo Rabbit”) and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” opens in U.S. theaters July 8, 2022!
