WHAT'S IT ABOUT

“Thor: Love and Thunder” finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — a quest for inner peace. But his 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.

    The fourth Thor installment is a strange beast; it’s certainly entertaining and a lot of fun but it’s also a little disheveled and uneven in parts. The positive is that the good far outweighs the bad. The Taika Waititi humour shines through and Chris Hemsworth leans into the lovably oblivious God of Thunder. Christian Bale gives an amazing performance in probably the MCU’s best and most believable villain (yes, of all-time) and Natalie Portman’s return is poignantly vulnerable.

    The story is strong despite the whimsy and although the second half falls away a bit there are still moments that force you to literally laugh out loud. It interacts nicely with the established MCU and beloved characters and you’ll leave the cinema satisfied.

    Fun and style over substance but sometimes that’s all you need

    Bonus point for a satisfying mid-credits cameo.
