Thor Love and Thunder is the 4th movie in the Thor franchise and the 34th MCU movie. It’s the 6th MCU movie of the phase 4 line of movies from Marvel Studios and by Walt Disney. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Russell Crowe, and Taika Waititi. Also written and directed by Taika Waititi.
I thought Christian Bale as Gorr the Butcher was one of the positives from the movie. Bale brings his A+ acting ability and does a good job with the material he’s given. He’s creepy, sinister, and a threat. I thought Natalie Portman was Jane Foster/Mighty Thor was another stand out. She was another surprise in my opinion from the movie. She had a lot of heart and audience will care about her and the challenges that’s presented to her in the 4th movie.
I thought the first 30 minutes of the movie was engaging. I was invested and was having a good time with the movie. It was nice to see the Guardian’s of the Galaxy again even though they did nothing in the movie beside continuing where End Game finished.
This movie misses Tom Hiddleson’s Loki as there was a huge emptiness without the character. With no Loki, Taika made Thor more stupid than we’ve ever seen him.
I apologize to Thor the Dark World and Iron Man 3 because This movie is the worst MCU movie I have seen yet, because it is a giant mess. Anytime there was potential for this movie to be good. It got crap on by Taika’s bad jokes. .
This movie had a combination of bad flaws of Batman Forever, Batman Returns, and Batman and Robin. This movie felt to much like a Disney movie than a Marvel Studios movie. This movie is a prime example of why the MCU’s movie are over saturated with comedy bits and recycle old jokes and stories.
Taika Waititi insert himself more into the movie as his annoying Koreg character that was frustrating to watch. Valkire had nothing to do with this movie. No character ark or anything. She’s was just there to be on Team Jane. The over saturated bad Taika Waititi jokes killed any potential in this movie.
The introduction to the mythology God’s such as Russell Crowe’s Zeus was horrible. This movie focused on attacking people’s religious beliefs, de-masculinity, and presented bad representation in a throw away scenes.
Thor Love and Thunder is a giant mess to watch. It’s over saturated with bad water cooler jokes, and bad writing from Taika Waititi. This is easily Taika Waititi worst movie I have seen. I think Taika Waititi should never direct another MCU movie. He should focus on his own creative work. Do not spend your hard money on this crap watch it free when it’s on Disney Plus.
