In a strange turn of events, Chris Hemsworth speaks out about how Thor 4, directed by none other than Taika Waititi was ‘batsh*t crazy, wild’ as it was directed by “Taika at his craziest”. Although there’s hardly anyone that’s not a critic these days, it did come out as a shock to the actor when his new movie was critiqued by a bunch of eight-year-olds.

Surprisingly enough, Chris Hemsworth himself laughs and cringes at his new movie Thor: Love and Thunder, as he feels that his movie got so much fun that it seemed silly. Even though his movie was a big hit in the theatres when released in 2022, however, it seems to have received mixed opinions from the commentators.

“I think we just had too much fun. It just became too silly. It’s always hard being in the center of it and having any real perspective… I love the process, it’s always a ride. But you just don’t know how people are going to respond.”

Talking about the movie’s director, Chris Hemsworth explained how the new Thor sequel’s content was a result of Taika Waititi‘s ‘inner child’. In an interview with Today, the Thor actor explained how crazy it all was. 

“It was Taika at his craziest. Taika, normally, is kind of at an 11, so you can do the math there. He described it as like he’d been given the keys to the kingdom, and someone said, ‘Here if a seven-year-old was making a movie, what would you do?’ He said, ‘Well, I want to put this in it. I want to do this. I want to try this.’ And everything he suggested, I said yes to, and then we had this insane film in front of us.”

However, this doesn’t really come as a surprise to the audience, judging how the God of Thunder traveled in a Viking Longboat dragged through space by two goats, namely Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder throughout the movie.

In an interview with GQ Heroes, the Thor: Love and Thunder actor reveals how even his kids’ friends did not hesitate to critique the movie for its cringeworthy content.  

“It’s a bunch of eight-year-olds critiquing my film. ‘We thought this one had too much humor, the action was cool but the VFX weren’t as good,’. I cringe and laugh equally at it.”

Nevertheless, Chris Hemsworth found himself in a whirlwind of cringe and laughter at the brutally honest reviews of eight-year-olds. Even though the movie got much criticized, the actor admits that he genuinely enjoyed filming it.
