It looks like Marvel’s success streak hits another milestone. Not only did the studio give us a great Spider-Man reboot but it looks like they’ve finally found a way to deliver a great Thor movie. The review embargo for Thor: Ragnarok has officially been lifted and so far, the critical reception is overwhelmingly positive, with some stating that Thor: Ragnarok “might” be the best Marvel movie to date.
Thor: Ragnarok currently sits with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after thirty-three reviews. This will obviously drop, although it’s a great start for Marvel’s latest adventure. To make things easier, I’ve gone ahead and collected some of the reviews.

In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok–the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization–at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger–the Incredible Hulk!
