Film Review: Thor - Love and Thunder (2022) (Fantasy)

Thor: Love and Thunder
Taika Waititi (Director)
Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman

Thor enlists the help of Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to fight Gorr the God Butcher, who intends to make the gods extinct. (Synopsis)

Thor: Love and Thunder was a pretty enjoyable movie. It had some great VFX and plenty of action and humour. It was entertaining for two hours. However, the plot was a bit weak and they seem to be turning Thor more and more into a comical caricature in the recent films. I personally have not been as excited by MCU films following the completion of the Infinity War storyline. The earlier films had characters I loved, and it was also wonderful following the ever-building plot involving Thanos and the Infinity Stones which ran through them all. I assume they will build up to another overarching story again, but the more recently introduced characters haven't captured me as much as older characters did, and while I enjoy each individual movie while watching it, I don't feel so great a desire to rewatch as I still do with films from the earlier phases. I will still continue to watch MCU movies, but I am no longer eagerly anticipating release day as I was in the past. Thor: Love and Thunder gets 4 stars from me.
