Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok

Thor: “I know what you’re thinking: how did this happen? Well, it’s a long story…”

Well, that it is indeed.

Named as one of the funniest films Marvel has ever made, Thor Ragnarok adds yet more spice to an already flavorful world of Marvel.

Asgard is in danger, and being the rightful heir to the throne, Thor feels that he must take the responsibility to save it from destruction; from Hela, the Goddess of death, and from Ragnarok, the end of Asgard. However, a phrase Odin spoke that embedded into Thor’s heart steered the whole movie into an entirely new direction. “Asgard is not a place, it is the people”.

This movie changes our perspective on Thor as he starts to become more playful and comedic with hints of sarcasm. It took Thor three of his own movies, and two Avengers movies to realize that he isn’t the god of hammers, but the god of Thunder after Hela crushed the mijnoir like it was made out of foam.

In the trailer, Bruce Banner, or The Hulk somehow landed up in Sakaar, a planet created by the Grandmaster, and he is put into a fight with Thor. Loki, the worst best villain or anti-hero of the Marvel world is also shown watching the fight and his expression looked like someone who had just seen a ghost when he saw Hulk. It was priceless.

So guess who won the fight?.

I don’t know, I just told you to guess.

Who is the alcoholic Valkyrie? How will Thor beat Hela? Who is really the raging fire, Hulk or Thor?

And most importantly, how hot is Thor?

If you really want to know the answer to these questions, you know what to do.

With a rating of 93 out of 100% from Rotten Tomatoes, this movie won’t disappoint you.

    At first, I thought it took a Thai Word “Rag-Narok” -meaning Love Hell but apparently no… This word (Ragnarök) comes from Norse Mythology referring to a series of future events, including a great battle, foretold to ultimately result in the end of a number of major figures’ lives. (Wikipedia) 🙂

    1. That is correct, and in this case, it meant the great battle between Thor and Hella that would decide the fate of Asgard. Glad you found it interesting!
