Is Thor: Love and Thunder Worth Seeing In The Theaters? [REVIEW]
I'm a little late to the film review of Thor: Love and Thunder being that it came out in early July. I finally made it out to catch it on the big screen with the family, despite a lot of negative reviews I had read about it. A lot of the time legit film reviewers don't know what the hell they are talking about anyway. Was that the case for this latest Thor film though?
Being a big fan of most of the Marvel films adapted from the comic books, I try to see them all on the big screen. I'm all about the booming sound, the comfy chairs, and the general atmosphere of a theater. My right out of the theater thought on Thor: Love and Thunder is that I really enjoyed it.
I wasn't bored, I laughed, and got decently sucked into the just under two-hour film experience. The story brought in many familiar characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy cast, Thor's previous love interest, and some new characters as well. It also features Christain Bale as the main antagonist, and I completely forgot he was in it until the final credits rolled. That's how much he transformed his body to extremes for the role. His acting wasn't over the top great though, so I feel like even an unknown actor could have taken the job and done just fine.
I won't get too much into the plot in case you haven't seen it yet, but it is your typical good versus evil that wants to destroy everything storyline as you would probably expect.
The few slower parts of the film aren't so slow it gets boring and were written in pretty decently. It was a good film to get sucked into and just forget about life for a while, and that is what the movies is about. What about the music though?
Thor: Love and Thunder featured a hell of a lot of Guns N' Roses, which being in my top five favorite bands means I really enjoyed the soundtrack. They even threw in some Ronnie James Dio to wrap the film up.
Overall, I would give the film a solid 7 out of 10, and suggest you catch it in the theaters while there is still time. Even if you don't, a decent TV and sound system at home should be enough to give you a good movie experience. In fact, with how disgusting movie theaters have been since the pandemic and short staff, it kills me to say you might be better off at home.
