Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

The last time we saw the Norse God of Thunder was in Avengers: Endgame, when he was about to rocket into space with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Following a whimsical recap from Thor's rock-buddy Korg, this fourth solo adventure finds the "space viking" (an effortless Chris Hemsworth) back to his muscular and lovably goofy best on a war-torn planet. But with news of Gorr the God Butcher slicing his way through a plethora of immortals, the rejuvenated hero decides to confront the villain with help from Asgardian comrade Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and powered-up ex Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi takes the reins again, but this time delivers more of a knockabout comedy than a full-throttle action adventure. There is plenty of heavy-metal spectacle, and a chalk-white Christian Bale oozes Joker-like menace as Gorr, but it's the tongue-in-cheek humour that sticks in the memory - such as Thor's Mjolnir-envy, a pair of screaming goats and one guest star's raucous turn as Zeus.
