Jan (Age 12): ★★★★1/2

"Hulk is back in the MCU! I loved this film. The story was excellent and the cast did great.

I think seeing that other side of Odin before his passing was a brilliant touch to the film. The power of Hela was scary, she broke Mjolnir. This made me depressed, I think that a Thor with no Mjolnir is like a sandwich without cheese, it just doesn't work.

The film was a tad overdramatic in scenes, but this wasn't bad enough to ruin the film (or my review).

I can't wait to watch Black Panther next!"
