The Storyline of The Thor Love and Thunder Movie

Gorr is summoned to the god-killing Necrosword and uses it to kill Rapu after the death of his daughter Love and after his god, Rapu rejects his cries for assistance. Gorr then swears to kill all gods. 

In a different scene, Thor leaves the Guardians of the Galaxy[N 2] after getting a distress call from Sif. Upon their arrival, a battered Sif warns Thor of Gorr and that New Asgard is his next target. Dr. Jane Foster, Thor’s ex-girlfriend who has been told she has terminal cancer, travels to New Asgard in an effort to get medical attention. Years earlier, Thor had unknowingly enchanted his destroyed hammer Mjolnir to protect Foster. Now Mjolnir reforges[N 3] and bonds itself to Foster. Just as Gorr begins attacking the town with shadow monsters, Thor arrives in New Asgard. Foster having Mjolnir surprises him, but he nevertheless joins forces with her, Valkyrie, and Korg to defeat Gorr. Gorr is stopped by the gang, but he manages to get away and abduct a number of Asgardian kids.

To inform the other gods and solicit their assistance, the party journeys to Omnipotent City. Korg is hurt by Zeus; in response, Thor impales Zeus with one of his own thunderbolts, which Valkyrie snatches as they flee.

Then, in order to save the kids, they go to the Shadow Realm. This, however, proved to be Gorr’s deception to obtain Stormbreaker, which he plans to unleash on the Bifrost to enter Eternity and request the abolition of all gods. Thor’s team is defeated by Gorr, who successfully steals Stormbreaker. Gorr opens the portal to Eternity using Stormbreaker. Foster is exhausted after using Mjolnir, and Valkyrie suffers serious injuries. If she uses it again, her cancer will likely spread faster. As a result, Thor sets out on his own while giving the Asgardian children who were abducted and their weapons the might of Thor so they can fight with him.

Thor admits defeat and persuades Gorr that his only goal in working with Eternity was to retrieve his daughter Love rather than to wipe out the gods. Foster passes away in Thor’s arms after succumbing to her illness. Gorr requests Thor to look after Love before he passes away from the effects of the Necrosword, and Eternity grants his request to resuscitate her. When the kids get back to New Asgard, Valkyrie and Sif start teaching them. Love, who is now wielding Stormbreaker, joins Thor as he resumes his heroic adventures as he is once more in possession of Mjolnir. 

In the middle of the credits, Zeus, who is recovering, commands his son Hercules to kill Thor. In a post-credits sequence, Foster finds Heimdall at the entrance to Valhalla.

Review of The Thor Love and Thunder Movie 

Thor: Love & Thunder is an emotional, humorous, romantic, and fantastic superhero movie that warmly welcomes newbies to the MCU and Thor as well as deepens the character for devoted fans. 

Love & Thunder is another excellent superhero movie by Taiki Waititi. Although some viewers might think there are too many jokes in this film, they are actually very well-balanced with the slower, more reflective periods. The character development that is Waititi provides for Chris Hemsworth is excellent.

By the time the credits roll, we see a Thor who is much more open to love—not in spite of that loss, but because of it. Thor has experienced so much loss in his life and is afraid to open up, but by the time the credits roll, we see a Thor who is much more open to love. 

Speaking of Chris Hemsworth, she does an outstanding job with his character once more. While he may come across as a little egotistical in the first and second acts of the film, in my opinion, his experience gives him an appreciation for and justification for his actions. Jane Foster was portrayed by Natalie Portman, who gave a standout performance and reminded fans exactly why she belongs in the MCU. When she was in the bathroom sink scene and in the flashback with her mother, in particular, I felt a lot of sympathy for her. 

I believe Taika Waititi’s intention was completely achieved because the music from the 1980s motion picture soundtrack greatly enhanced it. Our heroes battled a CGI monster against a black background in the visual effects, which were a real treat and certainly not your typical Marvel event. From Thor’s lightning energy to Zeus’ lightning bolt, the graphics were incredibly impressive. 

Overall This was an excellent film that moved the Marvel Cinematic Universe forward overall. If I had any concerns, they should have given Jane Foster and Thor the God butcher more development, but aside from that, I would heartily recommend this film to both MCU fans and moviegoers in general.
