I just saw this yesterday and I was surprised this thread hadn't been posted (I guess it's not out stateside yet). So here it is. My review (SPOILERS): It was a fun ride and a beautiful movie, but not top tier. I think visually it had some of the most gorgeous moments of the MCU. Valkyrie was great, Thor and Loki's relationship was great. Odin's send-off was great (and I didn't even like Odin in the other movies). I also really liked the story in general - the (very 80s like) quest vibe was fun. The action was excellent - Thor in particular has never looked better, and I loved both Immigrant Song sequences (though I thought both were cut too short; they should've just let those awesome fight scenes completely blow up and not worry so much about making the audience feel the seriousness of the moment again, that would've fit the tone of the movie much better). I'm not entirely sold on talkative Hulk - it came across better in the trailers than the movie. I thought Hela was fine, but too much of her characterization is just sitting around whining about her past and occasionally killing some nobodies. I blame in large part the whole Skurge subplot, which I have to say was ultimately pointless. Skurge was great for his first scene and the movie really didn't need him at all after that. If the writers had let go of him, maybe we could've seen some actual flashbacks of Hela's glory days and given her a much more imposing presence. (This could've also given more screen time to Heimdall, who really deserved it, and made Thor's first vision of Hela's Asgard more impactful). Also, Hela felt like the weakest link in the movie visually speaking. That godstorm throwdown at the end should've been utterly amazing - and it was on Thor's end, but somehow they just couldn't come up with anything more impressive for Hela than throwing swords and spikes. Her dungeon scene was great, though. 'Half the stuff in here is fake.' I loved Surtur. He was hilarious. Though from the very beginning, I wondered why it was a good idea to store his crown right next to the eternal flame? I thought Korg and Miek were funny at first, but they took it too far. Especially the whole 'Miek's dead' thing just fell completely flat. I absolutely loved the ending, though, with the new King of Asgard and his advisers. That ship above them - is that supposed to be Thanos? Overall, I would compare it primarily to Ant-Man: a funny, but occasionally rough movie with some great characters and action sequences and a nice, heartfelt core (but this one had fewer rough spots than Ant-Man). As such I would rank it a little above the middle of the MCU pack and rate it a solid B-.
