The "Thor: Ragnarok" sequel is off to a great start. Early reactions from viewers of the movie's advanced screening have been mostly positive.

The Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi movie won't officially run in theaters until November but the anticipation has escalated following some good feedback from movie critics, as per Comic Book. Apparently, the latest film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe makes for fun viewing.

"'Thor: Ragnarok' has a few surprises I didn’t know about," Steven Weintraub, a critic from Collider said. "One of them is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and possibly the funniest scene in any Marvel movie."

"’Thor Ragnarok is one of the funniest Marvel Studio movies thus far, definitely the best Thor film," another critic, Peter Sciretta from Slashfilm tweeted.

"Loved Mark Mothersbaugh’s score."

Thor-The Hulk buddy cop vibe

Thor: Ragnarok” follows the 2011 “Thor” debut and the 2013 “Thor: The Dark World” follow up. Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki) Anthony Hopkins (Odin) and Idris Elba (Heimdall) are back for the third movie, which also introduces Cate Blanchett as the Goddess of Death Hela and Tessa Thomspon as Valkyrie. Karl Urban and Jeff Goldblum are also in the movie as the Executioner and the Grandmaster.

Mark Ruffalo is also in the film as part of the Marven Cinematic Universe’s shared world. The actor will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk and his pairing with Thor will give that buddy cop vibe in the film.

Waititi’s humor works

Critics are also loving director Taika Waititi's take on the latest Thor film because of his brand of humor.

This is the director’s first major Hollywood flick but he's a big deal in his home country New Zealand where he is most known for his comedy. Critics say he brought that same mark to "Thor: Ragnarok,” as per Entertainment Weekly.

"I want to take people on a ride and inject some comedy into it,” Taika Waititi discussed via The Verge when asked on his decision to make "Thor: Ragnarok" fun. "[I want] an adventure that keeps people laughing along the way, but also has the spectacle and stuff that gets people excited."

Chris Hemsworth, on the other hand, also had no qualms about making the God of Thunder funny so that the third film would feel new and refreshed. Critics also loved that Taika Waititi brought out the actor’s comedic side in an unexpected way.

Thor: Ragnarok” will be in US theaters on Friday, Nov. 3. Moviegoers from U.K., Australia and some parts of Asia, however, will be able to watch the film a week earlier.
