Marvel's latest offering, Thor: Ragnarok only hits theaters this weekend, but the reviews have already started rolling in.
Being one of the more hyped superheroes in Marvel's universe, the movie seems to live up to its high expectations. Critics seem (almost) united in their reviews of Thor: Ragnarok, with some calling it the funniest Marvel films ever — even the negative reviews agree that it's enjoyable to watch.
Taika Watiti is the latest director to incorporate a healthy dose of comedy onto the big screen after Deadpool and Antman found the mix of action and humor to be a winning combination.
Watch the trailer above and check out a selection of the reviews below.

Thor: Ragnarok is the funniest Marvel movie to date. In fact, it may be the funniest superhero movie ever.
Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
In a world of portentous blockbusters getting ever darker, it's a joy to see one throwing on the disco lights.
Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
Both the banter and the fighting, it should be noted, are excellent, so whether you go to superhero movies for the glossy escapism or the pulse-pounding action, you'll get your large soda's worth.
Alex Godfrey, GQ UK
This film is a glorious carnival of nonsense.
Steve Rose, Guardian
It basically throws up its hands at its own ridiculousness and plays it all for laughs - and it gets them.
Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
Start grouchy and you may hate it. Stick a smile on your face and it will stay there.

"Thor: Ragnarok" is the most fun of the Thor movies by a long shot, but it is still very much a Thor movie for better or worse.
Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK)
Thor: Ragnarok is fun in its own kinetic, comic book fashion but it doesn't have any dramatic urgency whatsoever.
Donald Clarke, Irish Times
I can say nothing kinder about Thor: Ragnarok than that it is not "one for the fans". It's for anybody at home to the throb of a sub-woofer and the scent of the herb.
Peter Debruge, Variety
While it's not saying much, "Thor: Ragnarok" is easily the best of the three Thor movies - or maybe I just think so because its screenwriters and I finally seem to agree on one thing: The Thor movies are preposterous.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to be released on October 27 and stars Chris Hemsworth alongside Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo and Cate Blanchett.
