Thor and The Love and Thunder Movie Review



The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the most popular franchise in recent memory, and the success of the original Avengers movie is directly responsible. The film successfully brought together some of Marvel’s most beloved characters from their various comic book series and had them team up to fight an alien invasion. This was just the beginning, however, for these heroes—and that’s exactly where we find them now. After seeing a few stand-alone movies that delve into their individual backgrounds, we have now welcomed a new phase in their story arcs with Thor: Love and Thunder. But is this new phase a step forward or backward? Read on to find out…


What is Thor: Love and Thunder About?

In the original Avengers movie, we were first introduced to the idea of an endgame for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the end of the movie, we were treated to a scene with Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, and Iron Man standing on a mountaintop and discussing the future of the MCU. We were told that the endgame was Thanos and that the story would lead to “Avengers: Infinity War.” In the MCU, the Infinity Stones have always been at the center of the story, and we have since seen them in multiple films, including the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films and “Doctor Strange.” In the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” we saw that the heroes were able to defeat and kill Thanos. In doing so, they lost the Infinity Stones, but this was the only way to win the fight. Now, we are seeing the MCU move forward without the Stones and without the threat of Thanos. In “Thor: Love and Thunder,” we see the goddess of thunder, Hela, become Thor after being promised the throne by Odin, a scene we saw in the original “Thor” movie.


Is Valkyrie The New Thor?

When Hela becomes the new Thor, many people have a natural question: who is going to be the new goddess of thunder? In the film, we see the character of Valkyrie, a new character introduced in the “Thor: Ragnarok” movie, step up to become the new Thor. This is a very smart choice, as it gives the audience another reason to see the movie, and it also makes perfect sense in the context of the story. The original Thor was often seen as immature and impulsive, while Valkyrie is a skilled warrior with an unparalleled sense of honor. In short, she is the perfect person to pick up the hammer and become the new Thor. We don’t know exactly how this will play out in future Marvel movies, but it certainly makes for a great plot device in this film.


Why Everyone Should See This Movie

First of all, this is the first Marvel movie since “Endgame” that continues the story from the original Avengers movie, which means it’s the first chance to see what happens next. We have waited years for this moment. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most beloved franchises in recent memory, and we can’t wait to see the next step in this epic journey. While this movie will obviously have plenty of references to the original “Thor” movie, it will also set the stage for the future of the MCU. We will finally get to see where the Infinity Stones are, what the rest of the franchise looks like without them, and how the Marvel story is going to conclude. This is definitely a movie that deserves to be seen by every Marvel fan.


Problems with the movie

While this movie has a lot going for it, it also has a few issues that may turn off certain audiences. First of all, it is important to note that this movie has a very different feel than the original “Thor” movie. While the first movie was more of a humorous adventure story, this one is far darker and more serious. This may be a turnoff for some people who loved the first movie and don’t want a different tone in the sequel. Another issue with the movie is that it feels very crammed. There are so many story threads in this movie that it can feel like there isn’t enough room for it all. We have Hela becoming Thor, the rest of the Asgardians returning to Earth, the status of the Infinity Stones, the relationship between Jane and Thor, and the romance between Valkyrie and a new character named Philip. It’s almost too much to pack into one movie.


Final Words

While this movie has its problems, it is still the beginning of a new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We get to see the aftermath of “Endgame” and the beginning of a new chapter in the franchise—one without the Infinity Stones and one without the threat of Thanos. This may be a bit disappointing for some fans, but it also makes for a brand new and exciting story. We are excited to see where this journey takes us next.
