Disappointed. Tom Hiddleston is not to blame. He is awesome as the God of Mischief, the story just wasn’t compelling.
It was all a little muddled from start to finish. Tom always delivers as Loki and it is enjoyable to watch if you can piece together the chaotic nature of the story.
I did enjoy the variants especially the alligator.
FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/tv-reviews/loki-season-1-spoiler-free-review
“Loki is yet another extraordinary addition to the MCU, delivering a deep study of the eponymous character while introducing the fandom to the beginning of the Multiverse. The writers do a phenomenal job building the TVA and developing its detailed time concept that tremendously impacts the universe without relying too much on exposition, despite a couple of heavy deliveries. From the award-worthy production design to the addictive, memorable score, every technical aspect is near-perfect. However, the performances completely drive the show, mainly Tom Hiddleston as the iconic villain, but Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, and a few others also shine. Mixed feelings about the finale that might be slightly underwhelming for non-comic-book readers, and also about an unconvincing subplot involving Hiddleston and Di Martino. Still, it’s the most important series of the MCU so far, so don’t you dare miss it!”
Marvel Studios’ Loki – Season One
Overall Ratings 4 1/2 stars 9.1 out of ten
Episode Ratings Episode One “Glorious Purpose” – 8.5/10 Episode Two “The Variant” – 8.8/10 Episode Three “Lamentis” – 7.5/10 Episode Four “The Nexus Event” – 9/10 Episode Five “Journey Into Mystery” – 9.4/10 Episode Six “For All Time. Always.” – 9.1/10
Acting – 0.9/1 Amazing cast with the top performances being Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and with the standout performance (being a spoiler I sadly can’t mention) from episode six.
Cinematography & CGI – 0.95/1 Cinematographer Autumn Durald Arkapaw turns this series from something that could look drab and uninteresting to something that looks incredibly special and amazing, especially succeeding with the beautiful dynamic lighting and colour grading. The GCI was great, with very minor dips in episode three. However, it was still the Marvel show with the best CGI and at no point did I notice it looking bad at all. Overall, one of Marvel’s best looking projects to date.
Dialogue – 0.85/1 The dialogue ranges from feeling slightly forced and awkward in episode three to brilliant in episodes one and six. Luckily most of the clunky dialogue is saved by the performances from the amazing cast.
Pacing – 0.8/1 After great pacing from episodes one and two, it grinds to a halt in episode three. Despite however necessary the character development may be it still doesn’t help how slow and detached the episode feels when compared to the rest. Thankfully it speeds up again with episode five having the best pacing.
Plot – 0.9/1 Great plot with some really fun and unique ideas and scenes. I personally loved the episode four plot twist, the whole of episode five and how much world building episode six does. I do feel, however, the cliffhanger at the end of episode six was too much to leave us with for a two year wait.
Score & Soundtrack – 1/1 Natalie Holt’s score is insane and there’s nothing that sounds quite like it. I loved the choice of music in episodes three and four, especially “Demons” playing over the Marvel Studios intro. My favourite tracks from the score through were “Loki Green Theme”, “Dangerous Variant” and “Alligator Bite.”
Set & Costume Design – 0.95/1 The amazing look of TVA’s interior was all practical and captured a vintage feel while still having a sci-fi feel and look. The costumes were brilliantly done, the TVA uniforms and Loki variants’ outfits were all standouts.
Themes – 0.85/1 I felt the themes of narcissism, destiny and freewill were all portrayed well, successfully showing how each character highlights the themes. Each Loki variant showing how narcissism is rooted into who they are. So much so that Loki falling in love with himself becomes a major plot point and the TVA’s sole purpose to eradicate free will from the every universe.
Tone – 0.9/1 The show knows when to have a serious moments and when to make jokes, with episode five especially succeeding with the comedy. However, at no time does it spend the entire time forcing laughs out of you, rather it focuses on developing your connection to the characters, especially Owen Wilson’s Mobius.
Uniqueness – 1/1 A really unique show with interesting moments other shows wouldn’t be able to accomplish nearly as well. The whole TVA as a whole is such an awesome idea and I can’t wait for it to be explored more in the second season.
Overall Thoughts A must-watch show for any Marvel fan and perfect for anyone who hasn’t been keeping up with the MCU since Endgame or even those looking for a fun Sci-Fi, Doctor Who/Rick and Morty-esque adventure. Easily the best show of Marvel’s “Phase Four.”
Bring on season two!
Surprising breakout success of Phase 4
My initial distaste for Loki is that it should not exist. Thanos finally killed off Loki and literally looked down the camera to say no resurrections this time. Bringing him back for a spin off would be ridiculous and undermine any credibility the MCU has left with consequences and destroy any chance of ever taking anything they do with Loki seriously again. It would just be pandering to Hiddleston fangirls at the cost of the narrative. I already feel Loki has had too much attention just because Hiddleston is pretty.
So obviously that’s what Marvel’s done. And yet annoyingly they’ve actually pulled it off. Despite wanting to dislike it, Loki is their best show and possibly their best phase 4 content.
Hiddleston is at his best here by far and there’s a clear reason for that. He’s got to make the exact version of Loki he wants. This isn’t Loki at the end of Infinity War with all his character development, but after a little fun in the first ep, it isn’t comically evil Avengers Loki either because Mobius has broken through his protective shell and Loki’s watched some marvel movies to make him want to try something different to change his tragic destiny. He’s wherever in the middle of those two extremes that Hiddleston wants him to be.
The character arc for Loki is compelling too. Mobius enters his life as finally a father figure who is honest with Loki and openly sees value in Loki. Loki quickly becomes an amusing puppy eager to please, and actually a god of mischief rather than evil – sort of Peter and Neal in White Collar, or the main characters in Catch Me If You Can.
Loki also finds someone to love and trust in Sylvie. It’s a little forced how completely Loki believes in her but it makes for an interesting dynamic of the goddess who can’t trust and the god who can’t be trusted. Sylvie as a Loki who’s been hunted since she was a child just for being born a girl is compelling in her own right but the two together work really well.
Russell’s criticism of the representation of sexuality is absolutely fair but really applies to the whole mcu, not just Loki.
The story is one of the most inventive and clever Marvel has ever done (making Dr Strange 2’s lack of imagination narratively even more inexcusable). It’s easy to see where the Doctor Who comparisons came from with the charming British rogue with his heart in the right place zipping through time trying to set it right. Loki lacks the representation of Who but its 6 episodes nail the humour, charm, and clever scripts of Doctor Who much better than a lot of Chibnall’s efforts managed to. We could go deeper on the comparison but at surface level at least it’s easy to see how this could scratch the itch for Moffat Who fans disappointed in Chibnall Who.
The cast around Loki are also very strong. Ravonna, B15, Miss Minutes and Sylvie are all great. Owen Wilson as Mobius may be MVP of Phase 4 with his simple moustached charm.
Jonathan Majors as Kang is a little harder to judge. He Who Remains is a variant, not a real Kang, and not even originally intended to be that, so his performance in later projects may be wildly different. Here though, he sells a very dialogue-heavy finale very well and his presence as Kang makes the show feel like it actually matters to the mcu. His performance is much more animated and loopy than you would expect from Kang but I see that as an improvement.
The ending of season 1 with He Who Remains killed and the timeline fracturing to unleash the multiverse so the multiversal war between Kangs can begin again is suitably epic and sets up future stakes for the mcu very nicely. Loki finding the TVA and Mobius have forgotten him though is potentially frustrating though as season 2 will have to spend time re-establishing character development for Loki and Mobius or the series will be deprived of its biggest strength.
