Check out our Thor Ragnarok DVD Film Review
Thor: Ragnarok is the third chapter in Marvel’s solo-superhero series about the ancient god of thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) — and the first to be directed by cult favorite Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). It’s much less serious and dark than the previous Thor installments (especially The Dark World); humor/tone-wise, it’s a lot more like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man. You can also expect plenty of big, explosive comic book-style moments.
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Director Taika Waititi gives us a satisfying and the film is really good. It’s explosive and fun and colorful and enjoyable. Is it overdone? You decide whether or not they overdid some things for this one. I see lots of people comparing it to Guardians of the Galaxy.A fabulous comic book film by this talented director..
Thor: Ragnarok is great due to its associates. They’re not out of place and they’re not really forced in. Take Hulk for example. I was thinking, “Hulk may or may not work in this film. Could be great, could be straight out opposite.” Well, overall, I think it’s good that they did include Hulk – even more so when they had him appear as Bruce, rather than Hulk himself. Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk is by far the best one yet. The film has great humor. Some say it’s either a little forced or it’s just simply not all that funny. Well, the moments that were funny, were funny. Jeff Goldblum’s role was unique, to say the He’s not amazing, but he’s an interesting part of the film and makes an okay villain. One thing that really stood and made the film even more enjoyable was its brother scenes, aka, scenes that revolve around Loki and Thor together. That was good in this film. I actually enjoyed Loki in this more than I did The Avengers. And Hemsworth is superb in the film. Not a better guy out there that could have played Thor. He was the correct, undeniable greatest choice.There’s also a very good ‘cameo’ like role, if you will, which does add to the movie. The film also doesn’t lose its identity, meaning that even though there are other characters and whatnot, it’s first and foremost a Thor film.
Overall, however, a great film, bright, colorful, funny, loads of action, good character usage, and the third act is damn good! Ragnarok is a terrific film though, and it’s one of the best.
