Fans are eagerly waiting for the release of Thor: Love and Thunder. The film not only features Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman as the two Thors but also includes the Guardians (or Asgardians) of the Galaxy. However, despite the inclusion of fan-favorite characters, the film’s rating on Rotten Tomatoes has greatly plummeted, leaving the fans in disbelief.
Thor: Love and Thunder receives negative reviews by critics, ranks low on Rotten Tomatoes
The film, which is the fourth installment of the Thor series, now has a rating of 71 percent on the Rotten Tomatoes website, which is lower than its predecessor, Thor: Ragnarok, which had a rating of 93 percent. Moreover, the film has been critiqued widely by critics. Nick Schager from The Daily Beast wrote,
“Everything is pitched at such a frantically insistent pace that the intended laughs die on the vine.”
Joshua Ryan from Fandom Wire gave the film a 7.5/10 rating but criticized the overuse of comedy and stated,
“In a way, Thor loses the “Mighty” aspect of his title “The Mighty Thor.” Gone are the qualities of leadership, confidence and the ability to instill intimidation into the hearts of his foes; replaced with the continuously growing buffoonery and idiocy that the character has come to be known for.”
Thor: Love and Thunder receives a 2.5-star rating from Discussing Film critic
Fans’ opinions were divided after the low rating of the film
The trailers look absolutely awful.
Phase 4 in general is mid to bad.
Shang-Chi, Loki, WandaVision, Ms. Marvel and MoM are my highlights.

Man Marvel really fell off. What actually happened? Phase 4 by far the weakest of them all.
