‘This Film Right There. I Love It’: Kingpin Actor Vincent D’Onofrio Gives Honest Thor: Love and Thunder Review


The Daredevil actor Vincent D’Onofrio comes out with a positive reaction to Thor: Love and Thunder. Despite Taika Waititi’s last venture in the form of Thor: Ragnarok a major blockbuster, he couldn’t pull off the same magic this time with Love and Thunder. Unlike many hits of Marvel, this movie received wide criticism for various factors. It received a largely mixed reception from the fans as well as the critics but the MCU stars who are an integral part of the franchise have their different takes on it and they are quite contrary to what the fans think.

Vincent D’Onofrio Doesn’t Go With The Crowd:

Thor: Love and Thunder received widespread criticism due to several factors like a disappointing VFX, not enough of Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher, and most importantly overuse of humor. The major complaint of the movie is that the comedy doesn’t land often and feels unnecessary. But the stars who form the core element of the studio drift apart from the crowd.

The latest of them is Vincent D’Onofrio, yeah our very own Kingpin from Netflix’s Daredevil who was last spotted in the Hawkeye series. The 63-year-old actor tweeted that he loves the movie:

“This, this film right here. I love it.”

Vincent D’Onofrio is also set to appear alongside Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in the upcoming Echo series which will follow the story of Echo played by Alaqua Cox whom we last saw in Hawkeye.

It is not the first time many of the MCU Insiders are praising the movie. Earlier also when the movie premiered, the Eternals actress Lia McHugh posted saying:

“As always, a spectacular night and another marvel movie you have to go see.”

Followed by her, the Doctor Strange 2 actress Xochitl Gomez also posted that the movie was absolute bonkers to her:

“Love & Thunder. Absolutely Bonkers, and that’s why I love it. Last night was everything. Still freaking out!!”

The list doesn’t end here as even Chris Pratt praised Chris Hemsworth for his role as Thor and also thanked Taika Waititi for making him a part of the movie:

“Nobody on Earth is more right for @thorofficial than this man @chrishemsworth. What a stud. What a star. What a movie! Forever grateful. Thanks to @TaikaWaititi for including us!  Thanks to everyone in Australia who took such good care of us.”

Even the Loki director Kate Herron exclaimed that she laughed, cried, and laughed again throughout the movie:

“No spoilers, just here to say go watch @TaikaWaititi #thorloveandthunder because it was great fun ⚡ I laughed. I cried. Laughed again.”

Although it’s evident that most of the stars came forward to support the movie yet the fans were quick to conclude and it’s also a fact because obviously, the stars can’t come out and publicly trash the studio they share a long-term partnership with. So it can be termed as more of a supportive attitude towards their co-stars and their workplace.

Thor: Love and Thunder is running in theaters near you.
