Thor Ragnarok: Early reactions call it a laugh riot from start to finish
The first reactions for Thor: Ragnarok have come in and it looks like the good folks down at Marvel Studios have got another big winner on their hands! "Visually stunning," "badass" and "funniest Marvel movie" are just some of the terms critics are using to describe the upcoming superhero flick.
The studio signed on Taika Waititi, an acclaimed director known for offbeat films like Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows, to direct Thor 3. Early trailers proved that Marvel did the right thing as Waititi's brand of humour, combined with Hemsworth's hilarious wit, really worked wonders.
And now, early reactions to Thor: Ragnarok, which started pouring in via social media on Monday, are extremely praiseworthy. Critics have highlighted the humor of the film while some have called out Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk as scene-stealers.
#ThorRagnarok is laugh out loud funny from start to finish. Stumbles a bit in the first act, but it triumphs when it gets weird with it.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017
Thor Ragnarok is one of the funniest Marvel Studio movies thus far, definitely the best Thor film. Loved Mark Mothersbaugh’s score.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) October 9, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok is just plain fun. It's hilarious from start to finish with quirky performances & exciting action. Tessa Thompson is the MVP. pic.twitter.com/7GyYG4IZZ5— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) October 9, 2017
#ThorRagnarok: a goofy good time. Easily the funniest non-Guardians MCU flick – EVERYONE in it is funny. Great music (Mothersbaugh), fights.— David Daniel (@CNNLADavid) October 9, 2017
Btw, #ThorRagnarok is solid MCU fun. Great music, Blanchett is awesome, looks/feels like an 80's video game. Slight, but wholly entertaining— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 9, 2017
#ThorRagnarok is SO much fun I almost can't take it. The best: Thor movie, Cate Blanchett scene stealing, Jeff Goldblum Goldblum-ing.— Kara Warner (@karawarner) October 9, 2017
Hulk is once again the scene-stealer, and a lot of it is that he can finally talk. Great to see him back on the big screen. #ThorRagnarok— Evil Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) October 9, 2017
