thumbs up

"It’s a movie that, to put it in terms that the film’s screenwriters might appreciate, is Thor-ly needed. "

- Michael O'Sullivan

thumbs down

"While it's not saying much, 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."

- Peter Debruge
