I got the sense of humor right from the beginning of the film. Thor is in a predicament, but the delivery of jokes came in without hesitation. The very first scene set the tone for the movie, and this installment of Thor’s solo story was more humorous than the previous Thor films. The jokes, however, got to the point where it was a little too much for me. There were a couple of scenes where I thought the tone would be more serious, but then there would be a wise crack out of nowhere that I thought could’ve made the scene better.
Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) are better than ever. The chemistry between these two are fantastic. The first Thor movie came out in 2011 so they have been on the same screen for about six years now. This time they have others joining the brothers, which is Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner AKA Hulk). I thought Ruffalo fit right in to the group. At first I thought he would be more of an outsider, but I was very wrong.
Speaking of Bruce Banner AKA the Hulk, we get to see the Hulk talk! The Hulk actually had conversations with Thor. Another interesting thing to see was the Hulk actually have his feelings hurt. Hulk also acknowledges Banner exists, which gave this a more Jekyll and Hyde, or a Nutty Professor feel to the character.
I thought the main villain was great. The power, destruction, and presence of Hela, played by Cate Blanchett, was felt throughout the movie. You knew when she was on the screen that something terrible was going to happen every time. In one of the first trailers, we saw Hela destroy Thor’s hammer, but that is just one example of how devastating she really is in the movie.
Overall, I thought the movie was good. There was a cameo that took me out of the movie for a second, Jeff Goldblum felt out of place, but he wasn’t too bad, but the fighting sequences, the plot, and the acting all made up for it in the end.
Final score: 8/10
