Before watching it, I expected to get a good action film, maybe without a particularly mediocre script, but with good memorable characters. In the end, all my expectations proved false. Once again, Marvel just exploits the characters and wants to squeeze the most money out of them.
The movie begins with Gorr getting frustrated with the Gods because they don’t do their jobs, causing innocents to die. From there, the villain’s storyline begins. The idea itself is very good, because the film really shows how some Gods lead a riotous life, forgetting about ordinary people, an example can be the opening scene or the scene with Zeus. This moral can be perfectly interpreted to our world, because some people with higher ranks forget about the citizens, which makes ordinary people suffer. The most frustrating thing is that the message is hammered out, and instead we are let in on absurd adventures.
In the first and second films, the love line between Jane Foster and Thor was very weak because they had absolutely no connection. It’s just that this love line was in the comic book, so they decided to repeat it. Then it was completely forgotten about for nine years, and here they decided to bring it back, and they did it for nothing. Instead of giving a sense to the love between the main characters now, nothing changes, Thor just starts crumpling like a schoolboy at the sight of the other half, and Jane might not mind, and that’s the love, you won’t see any morality here. On top of that, the beloved is given some kind of superpowers, and now she is almost on par with the God of Thunder himself. Was this necessary for the movie? Certainly not, because it only creates excessive pathos and does not influence the morality of the movie in any way.
Let us look at the development of the main character. In the fourth solo movie it would be nice to see the God who has suffered a great loss and somehow changed, but we are not shown that, instead we are shown Thor who keeps on having fun and throwing jokes away. The main character hasn’t matured or changed at all compared to the third solo film. Nevertheless, we have before us a protagonist who is really good and helps the good characters, which may very well affect the morality of the film.
It would seem that we have Gorr, who thinks that all Gods are bad, and we have Thor, who is also God, but is good and helps everyone. We just need to connect the two dots and that’s it, that’s the perfect solution to the morality and problem of the main antagonist, but the writers take a convoluted path. They stick us with Valkyrie, Korg, a little bit of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but why? These characters are just for fun company, so you can come up with more jokes, but no more, they don’t even help the plot develop in any way. The final battle should have just left the main protagonist and antagonist alone, because they are already the perfect solution to the problem, but for some reason they stick some helpers in, and the solution to all the problems is just love. In the finale the film says, they love each other, and then everything will be all right, but we are not told about it before, we are not given any clues about it, and the main villain’s problem did not appear at all because of that, but the message decided to just go in another direction.
At times you even get the feeling that the script was written just for the sake of ridiculous jokes. For example, like the scene with Thor naked, which does not change the plot in any way, and if you cut it out, then surprisingly nothing will change.
If in the first parts we were shown that only true people are worthy to lift the hammer, including the God of Thunder, then in the third part we are shown that Thor doesn’t need the hammer, he can control thunder and be strong without it, but in the fourth part it’s no wonder. Now Thor can’t be strong without a weapon, he constantly needs something, which contradicts the previous part of the solo picture, and the thunder-senkir or hammer is already worthy of every other one. Yes, and in general, less and less sense but more contradictions are becoming in the new Marvel projects, but people continue to consume. Characters no longer serve to advance the plot, but only to sell toys and merchandise, and the intertwining of storylines is now just for devoted fans to gape at the fact that the same scene was in a comic book or, will see a reference to the previous film. It is worth understanding that this picture does not carry any message at all and is structurally comparable to the most mediocre films. Whether we are ready to continue living in a society where such soulless projects collect a lot of money, simply because the film is linked to a huge series of other similar ones, is up to the audience to decide.
