Director: Taika Waititi
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins
Death goddess Hela (Cate Blanchett) returns from exile to claim the throne of Asgard, thrashing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and banishing him to the fighting pits of Sakaar. There, reunited with the missing-since-Ultron Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), he must battle his way to freedom, return home and unseat the usurper.
Imprisoned on the planet Sakaar, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is pitted against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), a former ally, in a gladiatorial duel to determine whether he can travel back to Asgard and put a stop to Hela (Cate Blanchett) and her apocalyptic tendencies toward Asgardian civilisation.
Thor: Ragnarok wastes no time cranking up its camp factor, which continues as he endures a rant from the massive demon Surtur. Thor repeatedly asks Surtur to pause his rant because he’s slowly spinning around while hanging from a mess of chains. “I feel like we had something there,” Thor says while waiting for eye contact to return.
The story is truly serious and great, the fun moments are tons! The cinematography of action scenes is just unrealistic good. Hela is one of the best MCU villain so far! Cate Blanchett just killing in it in this role. She looks sexy, furious and also got her arc in the movie, which is big step, thinking about previous Thor movies. Hulk got so many epic moments, that I just can’t count. Valkyrie fits perfectly in the ne “Revengers” team such a good actress. Loki is fan favourite again! Every moment with Tom Hiddleston on screen is awesome.
Cate Blanchett just nails her role as the goddess of death. She is the show stealer, her attitude her walk everything is just perfect.
The last scene which displays the thor force was icing on the cake.
Believe me I am big DC fan but this movie is just mind blowing.
Under the direction of New Zealand director, Taiki Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s most audacious film in their cinematic universe to date. Not only does it supersede the previous Thor films, but does so in the funniest and entertaining of ways. By far the most unorthodox character change within the Marvel universe, the new direction for Thor is pleasantly unique and sought-after, filled with Waititi’s trademark humor and exuberance from start to finish. However, Thor: Ragnarok is more than just a comedic act.
This movie is MCU’s finest stand alone movie.
4 stars out of 5.
