Thor: Ragnarok Review

Marvel
I saw Thor: Ragnarok last week and I absolutely loved it! It's a rollicking adventure with a lot of comedy to lighten up the darker moments, and all about family, which makes for a fun film. Caution: Spoilers Ahead.


Marvel
The film starts with Thor travelling around the galaxy, trying to prevent the coming of Ragnarok, which will bring about the downfall of Asgard. He quickly defeats the giant Surtur and returns to Asgard. There he discovers an odd tableau.

Marvel
Odin is lounging around, watching a play featuring the overly dramatic death of Loki (who is humorously played by Matt Damon, opposite Luke Hemsworth's Thor and Sam Neill as Odin.) Thor quickly assesses the situation and forces Loki to drop his Odin disguise. They head to Earth in search of the Allfather and run into Doctor Strange, who helps them on their way.

Marvel
In Norway, Odin reveals that he has another child, Hela, his eldest, goddess of death. She has been imprisoned for centuries, but as Odin'  power fails, she will soon be released. When she appears, Thor and Loki attempt to stop her. Hela destroys Mjollnir, and Loki attempts to flee to Asgard, with disastrous results.

Marvel
Thor finds himself in a junkyard on an unfamiliar world, surrounded by people who want to eat him. He is captured by Valkyrie,  who presents him to the Grandmaster as a champion for his arena. Thor finds that Loki has also landed on Sakaar, but is looking out for his own interest. Thor then prepares to meet the Grandmaster's champion. (Love the cameo by Stan Lee as a crazy barber.) Of course, the champion is the Hulk, who has been the big green for two years, with no sign of Bruce Banner reappearing.

Thor now has to battle his way from Sakaar to Asgard, build an army, and save his world. You'll have to see how it ends for yourself, but the battles are pretty epic. I can't wait to watch it again!
