– MY REVIEW –
I don’t quite remember how funny the first Thor movie was, but if you enjoyed the God of Thunder’s humour in any of the Avengers movies, then you are going to enjoy this film. My boyfriend and I, along with the rest of the auditorium, were in tears from laughing so much! And I cannot remember the last time that a movie made me laugh like that. All of the people behind the scenes really took advantage of Chris Hemsworth’s natural playfulness, as well as the rest of the cast’s, when they put this movie together. They also made good use of the cast’s chemistry, and how funny they could be together.
Also, speaking of the cast, I think that they did a really great job. They all played their parts very well, and I also like that they cast a POC actress to play a typically-white character (Valkyrie)! She gets a lot of screen time (which is awesome), as do Thor (who might now be my favourite Avenger! Ah!), Loki (yay! I love The Hiddles), the Hulk (one of the funniest characters in this!), Bruce Banner (also quite funny), and Hella (Kate Blanchett looks so good as a villainess! Ah!). I would have liked to see more of Idris Elba’s character, Heimdall, but…maybe in the next movie.
The visuals were great, so when I wasn’t wiping away tears of laughter, I was just staring at the detailing in some of the more epic scenes, or sitting on the edge of my seat during the fight scenes. There was also a lot of action, and between that and the visuals, and the funny scenes, I can’t think of one moment when I was at all bored. I also want to mention that I really enjoyed the use of music throughout the film!
I wish that I had more to say so that I can use more of the awesome GIFs made from this movie, that’s really all that I can think of. The reason why I didn’t give this movie 5 stars, is because there were a few awkward moments (I found), and a romantic relationship felt a little bit forced (to me). Otherwise, this movie was just great great fun! I definitely recommend that people watch this in theatres (because it’s just an awesome experience), and I for one will definitely be watching it again (maybe in theatres, and definitely when it’s out in Blu-ray)!
