Thor: Ragnarok (opens in new tab) is just around the corner and, would you look at that, the first press reaction embargo has been lifted. Reviews are to come at a later date but, as we all know from awkward parties, first impressions count. Has the movie captured lightning in a bottle or has Thor continued his streak of being in slightly disappointing Marvel flicks? Let’s find out…
From Jeff Goldblum to Hulk, the movie is filled with box-office smashes so you’d think it wouldn’t disappoint, right? Thankfully, that looks to be the case. The critics are loving the movie – and are here for Tessa Thompson’s star turn at Valkyrie. And Jeff Goldblum, of course.
The weirdest MCU movie yet?
THOR RAGNAROK is hilarious & weird & offbeat & retro & sublime. Love how Marvel let Taika Waititi make a movie that's Waititi-ish as hell.9 October 2017
Goldblum steals the show
Jeff Goldblum was my favorite part of THOR: RAGNAROK. Nonsensical and kooky as ever.9 October 2017
Jeff Goldblum is glorious in Thor Ragnarok, but didn't expect anything less. I mean look at this man. pic.twitter.com/uuRjLHrAxi9 October 2017
...or does Cate Blanchett?
Btw, #ThorRagnarok is solid MCU fun. Great music, Blanchett is awesome, looks/feels like an 80's video game. Slight, but wholly entertaining9 October 2017
#ThorRagnarok is SO much fun I almost can't take it. The best: Thor movie, Cate Blanchett scene stealing, Jeff Goldblum Goldblum-ing.9 October 2017
Or Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie?
No. 1 @TessaThompson_x is hands down the best part of #ThorRagnarok. She rocks. Hope she's New Avenger someday. Also Cate Blanchett has fun9 October 2017
#ThorRagnarok is the best Thor movie BUT still think it’s really good not awesome. Hemsworth, Hulk & Tessa all great, though. And Goldblum! pic.twitter.com/rY6ItFzdjN9 October 2017
Wait, maybe it's Hulk? THEY'RE ALL SO GOOD
Hulk is once again the scene-stealer, and a lot of it is that he can finally talk. Great to see him back on the big screen. #ThorRagnarok9 October 2017
Thor brings the funny
'Thor: Ragnarok' has a few surprises I didn’t know about. One of them is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and possibly the funniest scene in any @Marvel movie. pic.twitter.com/NRNFeftHyQ9 October 2017
After seeing #ThorRagnarok I can say that @chrishemsworth’s Thor will become many people’s No.1 favorite Avenger. The guy shines in this.9 October 2017
Thor Ragnarok is one of the funniest Marvel Studio movies thus far, definitely the best Thor film. Loved Mark Mothersbaugh’s score.9 October 2017
