Film critics are in an absolute rave about Thor: Ragnarok, praising its wild and bold choices as well as many of its other noteworthy aspects. Director Taika Waititi’s first involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has turned out to yield a rousing success and has been worth the incredible amounts of stress and anxiety that he has referred to during an interview with Irish news site RTÉ Entertainment. Thankfully, the New Zealander can take a deep breath at the positive reception of his unique vision of Marvel’s latest cinematic offering.
