Critics are now posting their thoughts on "Thor: Ragnarok," and it's clear they like it -- more than the previous "Thor" movies -- and they seem to agree on what they like best:
- The humor -- calling Taika Waititi's film one of the funniest Marvel movies yet.
- Mark Mothersbaugh's musical score.
- Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie as the film's "MVP."
Here are a few of the early reactions:
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
Thompson is great too, a subversion of the "bad-ass" female action figure. At its best, #ThorRagnarok has an occasional GHOST PROTOCOL vibe.— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) 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
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
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
#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
All the new #ThorRagnarok characters are knockouts, but Tessa Thompson walks away with this movie. All hail Valkyrie.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017
The technical work on this movie is spectacular too. Visuals are stunning & Mark Mothersbaugh's score might be Marvel's best.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017
Check out more initial reactions at Thor's own special hashtag. Full reviews will be posted after the embargo is lifted, but it looks like a fresh score is ahead -- maybe not top of the heap, but high. (DC fans, this is not bad for you, "Justice League," or the DCEU. It's OK for people to like another Marvel movie.)
"Thor: Ragnarok" stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, alongside Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Cate Blanchett as Hela the Goddess of Death. Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, and Anthony Hopkins co-star. The movie arrives in theaters on November 3.
