“Thor: Love and Thunder” currently has a “65% Fresh” rating on the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. The general consensus of the critics is that the film is a bit lacking compared to the impressive performance of “Thor: Ragnarok”, but it is still a worthwhile addition to the MCU. Stylish, funny and exciting, the film should please Thor aficionados and fans of Waititi’s other directing work.
