Fans have fervently anticipated Thor: Ragnarok, since the film was announced. When the trailers hit the Internet, that anticipation reached a fever pitch. Well, it looks like everyone can rest easy, because early reactions are making the rounds, and they are -- not so surprisingly -- overwhelmingly positive.
Official reviews for Ragnarok are still embargoed, meaning they cannot be posted until closer to the release of the film. However, critics already got their chance to go to a screening of the Marvel Studios threequel, and early reactions are glowing. Taking to Twitter, they are sharing their immediate reactions to the film.
#ThorRagnarok: a goofy good time. Easily the funniest non-Guardians MCU flick – EVERYONE in it is funny. Great music (Mothersbaugh), fights.— David Daniel (@CNNLADavid) October 9, 2017
Even those who felt the movie was less the perfect still came out sounding enthusiastic.
Btw, #ThorRagnarok is solid MCU fun. Great music, Blanchett is awesome, looks/feels like an 80's video game. Slight, but wholly entertaining— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 9, 2017
#ThorRagnarok is laugh out loud funny from start to finish. Stumbles a bit in the first act, but it triumphs when it gets weird with it.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017
But most people had a really good time with it:
I saw #ThorRagnarok tonight. All I can say is YOU ARE ALL NOT READY FOR THIS MOVIE— Reilly the 13th Part VII The New Blood (@ReillyAround) October 9, 2017
No, really, it melted my face. Tomorrow, reaction video.
