Thor: Love and Thunder 2022 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online
This is not “Ragnarok 2”. This is something different and although it has a similar tone to the previous film (logically) it is also very different.
Taika has managed to balance humor, emotion and action in a way that must be experienced in order to be described. The story is more than interesting. Once again, Waititi points us in a certain direction, and just when you think you know what’s going to happen, he turns our heads.
At this point, everyone knows that Hemsworth was born for the role of Thor, but in this movie, he elevates his character to a completely different level…you’ll see.
Natalie Portman returns as Jane, but unlike previous films in which she was not a particularly interesting character, Taika has applied her magic and, in addition to embodying her in Mighty Thor, makes her a well-built character. Her return to the franchise is important for Thor’s graduation, but it also tells us a story you can’t watch indifferently. She’s also funny, something we can’t say about her previous incarnations in the role.
All other supporting characters such as Valkyrie, Korg and Guardians also add a pinch or more of themselves to the final product. The chemistry between Thor and the Guardians is ridiculous, something we already saw in “Infinity War” and “Endgame”. The chemistry between Valkyrie and Mighty Thor is something I can watch all day. Korg has a bigger role than and every scene is pure pleasure – that’s what happens when you make enough pamphlets for a revolution!
Christian Bale…frankly it’s still surreal that he’s part of the MCU, but his role as Gorr The Godbutcher is quite the reason for an actor of his caliber to perform it. Gorr is brutal, some of his scenes will remain etched in my mind for a long time, but not his radical actions are the only thing that makes his character memorable. You know that once the villain of the movie makes you sympathize with him and understand him, he is more than “another villain”.
One of the best action scenes in the entire Marvel universe is in “Love And Thunder”! I can’t wait to watch the movie again! The film feels like a collection of several comic book editions of Thor, adapted in the form of a film, flooded with a solid dose of style and music from the 80’s.
“Thor: Love And Thunder” is all that was expected and more. Taika doesn’t do more of the same, but pushes the boundaries even more, giving you a solid dose of laughter, action and emotions that you may not be ready for! The film has many pleasant surprises for fans and the love for the details is visible. The film surpasses all expectations balancing absolutely bombastic insanity with moving character driven stories. Christian Bale is top tier and Natalie Portman is truly outstanding. Waititi may have just delivered the MCU’s best movie of Phase 4 and certainly one of the top 10 in the entire Marvel universe.
