Thor: Ragnarok is…well, I’ll explain. We follow our beloved Asgardian as he uncovers dark secrets about the kingdom he calls home. Not only does he find out that he is not the rightful heir to the throne, but he discovers that he is not the strongest or first born. Thor and Loki have a sister… a beast in combat and self proclaimed executioner of their father, Odin. Oh yes, it’s about to go down.
I want to first say that this is the best movie of the three that I have had the pleasure of viewing. The second movie, Thor: The Dark World was just awful but that’s not why we’re here. The visual representation of Asgard is still, in my opinion because I have not seen another world to compare it to, is one of of the most beautiful worlds put together in the MCU.
We all love Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in their love/hate relationship that they have as brothers/rivals. Even Loki finds a certain peace in knowing that after everything he has done, his father (yes, even though we know that Loki is adopted/stolen from the Frost Giants and he is a prince or whatever) still loves him, flaws and all. Loki coming to those terms with his father makes him a better brother to Thor in this installment.
Hela (Cate Blanchett), the older sister of Thor and Loki, comes back immediately after Odin dies and confronts her younger brothers. She has no desire to fight for a throne that is rightfully hers but knowing that she can destroy them both without breaking a sweat is mind-boggling. I mean, it’s Thor! Thor got into a fistfight with the Hulk, twice! Who can fight the Hulk and walk away standing, except Iron Man and his bulked up Hulk buster suit, but it’s the Hulk!
Hela is the most bad-ass character in this movie. That is all. Next….
In my honest opinion, this was the best movie of the Thor franchise and I was very proud of the director, Taika Waititi. The movie is very well-rounded and unexpectedly funny. Thor provides some classic humor and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) is funny herself in some moments. I’ll say this: if my daughter, who is known for falling asleep on movies, can watch Thor and be amazed then it must have been a good movie.
Rating: 4.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
