Positive 'Thor' Reviews Continue

Is that thunder I hear?

We are just a day away from the release of Marvel’s new Thor movie and the reviews are starting to pour in. And they’re good!

As of this moment, the film has scored an extremely positive 87% on Rotten Tomatoes (overall). I tend to head straight to the “Top Critics” tab to see what the cream of the crop thought of the film and was pleased to see positive reviews from Time, Entertainment Weekly and the Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s a sample:

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
“Pulls off something I wouldn't have thought possible: It restores the innocence to big-budget superhero mythmaking.”

Meghan Lehmann, Hollywood Reporter
The hammer-hurling god of thunder kicks off this superhero summer with a bang.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star
“What really seals the deal is Hemsworth's undeniable charisma, making us ignore the patchiness of the scene changes and the occasional dialogue howler.”

Thor is set for release nationwide tomorrow.
