Love And Thunder’ is praised after world premiere

Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” received critical acclaim after its world premiere.

“Thor: Love and Thunder” starring Chris Hemsworth and directed by Waititi had its world premiere on Thursday. Several journalists and film critics who were able to watch the Marvel superhero movie couldn’t help but flood Twitter with positive reviews after seeing the film.

Many praised the acting of the cast, including Christian Bale, who played one of the antagonists. Several also found the film hilarious. It was the right combination for them.

“#ThorLoveAndThunder is the funniest movie in the MCU. The jokes are excellent, as is the cast that delivers them,” Eric Italiano, senior writer at Bro Bible tweeted† “Christian Bale is of course also terrifying as #Gorr. BUT, the plot felt flat and unstable. I’m not sure if that’s a #Thor problem or an MCU-without-a-big-bad problem.”

“#ThorLoveAndThunder has an appetite for destruction and laughs. It’s all rad! Taika Waititi delivers a subversive, irreverent spectacle. Great story, commitment and character building. Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman, fantastic. Russell Crowe & Christian Bale slip easily into the world Courtney Howard, a film critic, added

Kirsten Acuna, correspondent for Insider, was one of the viewers who was very impressed by Bale’s performance. According to her, the actor was “phenomenally menacing” as the villain Gorr the God Butcher.

“One of the scariest Marvel villains we’ve ever seen on screen. Gave me some Dark Knight Ledger Joker vibes at one point,” she added.

#ThorLoveAndThunder is a vibrant and vibrant explosion that delivers. Hemsworth’s Thor remains a jewel in Marvel’s crown. Bale’s Gorr is a killer boogeyman who mixes the campy and the creepy. Portman’s Foster and Thompson’s Valkyrie are a top-notch combination. Crowe’s Zeus is *chef’s kiss*’” producer and journalist Simon Thompson said about the movie.

Erik Davis was another lucky viewer. According to him, “Thor: Love and Thunder” was “another classic Thor movie”, and it was “everything I wanted it to be”.

“Big, colorful, weird Guns N’ Roses fueled fights with a hopelessly romantic story about discovering love in unexpected places. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are especially great. And Korg!” he added

“Thor: Love and Thunder” will be released in the US on July 8.
