(Waititi's) follow-up may not quite have the irreverent zing of its predecessor but it still bursts with surreal spectacle, Pythonesque silliness and disarming emotion.

Gorr is easily the most interesting and sympathetic Marvel adversary since Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger in Black Panther.

Taika’s Thor-quel is a big, beautiful blast. You’ll love it, and probably thunder it too. What a classic Thor adventure!

If Love and Thunder is more of the same, it’s also never less than that.

Love and Thunder... is arguably the closest (Waititi's) ever come to autopilot – and yet it’s still such a delight, motor-powered by goofy self-awareness and childlike imagination.

When the words “THOR WILL RETURN” flash across the scene at the end of this installment, it feels like an ancient curse.

Thor: Love and Thunder feels like the product of a Thor: Ragnarok focus group... what once seemed bracing and revelatory now feels familiar, safe, even rote on occasion.

It's hard to create tension when the stakes are so low. But the film's breezy tone and ultimately strong emotional depths make up for that flaw.

A movie that's muscular and handsome but at its best sporadically likeable, and even harder to love.

The movie suffers from none of the self-seriousness or draggy exposition of other Marvel outings, even when its patchwork plot feels stuck together with rainbows and chewing gum.

If Marvel has been coasting on a comfortably unexceptional level of quality for much of Phase 4, the joyous Love and Thunder is a return to the glory days of the Infinity Saga.

The best thing that can be said about Thor: Love and Thunder is that as rough as the experience is, it's nowhere near as bad as Thor: The Dark World.

Is it a “bad” movie? No. It has many elements that dazzle, it just doesn’t dazzle as a whole.
