The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been on a roll this year with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming both earning rave reviews. Now it appears that Thor: Ragnarok is ready to join the Certified Fresh club.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently has a thunderous 100% rating based on just over 30 reviews.
Here are some of the positive critical reactions thus far:
“Ragnarok is basically a Joke Delivery System – and on that score, it works. The movie is fun.”
“As it arrives poised for a megalithic box-office haul, it might be helpful to keep in mind the advice offered by one character: ‘You cannot stop Ragnarok. Why fight it?'”
“Thor: Ragnarok is easily the best of the three Thor movies – or maybe I just think so because its screenwriters and I finally seem to agree on one thing: The Thor movies are preposterous.”
“Even tonal issues can’t upend the magic this movie taps into putting Thor and Hulk together as new best buddies, whether they’re throwing down in an arena or having a bromantic heart-to-heart.”
“Both the banter and the fighting, it should be noted, are excellent, so whether you go to superhero movies for the glossy escapism or the pulse-pounding action, you’ll get your large soda’s worth.”
While none of the reviews are praising Ragnarok as the best MCU movie, the general consensus seems to be that it’s the best Thor movie by a landslide. Stay tuned for Flickreel’s take on the film.
