So I saw it yesterday, on Thor’s Day and my birthday, and I really loved it. There’s a place for the super serious and dramatic superhero film, a la Winter Soldier, and a place for balls to the wall fun, and Thor 3 is definitely the latter. This is the best Hulk we’ve ever seen, and my favorite incarnation of Thor, and there was quite a lot of great stuff in between.
I do wish they’d used real locations from time to time, though, the green/blue screen sets just didn’t feel as real to me as they should’ve, especially the Norway location.
Other than that, my only complaint is really praise; I wanted more of everything. More Hela, more Bruce/Thor dynamics and more Hulk/Thor, more Valkyrie, more Sakaar and more Asgard. That the film didn’t give me this isn’t something that reflects poorly on it, but rather shows the strong vision of Waititi and the others involved.
