“Thor: Love and Thunder”

September 12, 2022

In “Thor: Love and Thunder,” everything happens too quickly. The movie clocks in at just under two hours long, and this time constraint is evident in every second of the rushed plot—the uncontrolled pace that stays consistent throughout the film. Christian Bale was neglected in his performance as Gorr, the movie’s antagonist, as the directors didn’t give him nearly enough screen time to be a compelling force against the movie’s heroes. Natalie Portman’s performance as Jane Foster occasionally felt uncomfortable: her and Chris Hemsworth’s attempts at comedy felt forced. The audience remained fairly silent throughout the majority of the runtime, a testament to the lack of funny jokes in the movie (e.g. a repeated gag with screaming goats). The movie’s predecessor, “Thor: Ragnarok,” felt more controlled and satisfying throughout its over-two-hour runtime, but “Thor: Love and Thunder” falls flat in a hurry.

Final score: 4/10
