Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

In Ragnarok, the third Thor Marvel outing, Thor has to cope with the death of his father Odin and the discovery of a previously unknown sister who is rightful heir to the throne of Asgard. Unfortunately Hela, Thor’s sister, is the all powerful Goddess of death and wants nothing more to destroy Asgard.

In an early skirmish Thor winds up on the strange planet of Surtur where he is forced into a gladiatorial style competition against a certain giant green fellow.

Eventually the action moves back to Asgard and a final battle between Thor and Hela.

Brilliantly directed by Taika Waititi who also turns in a great performance as the voice of Korg. Ragnarok fits very nicely into the MCU phase three plans. It’s also easily the funniest Marvel movie yet made. Fans will bemoan the absence of Natalie Portman et al but Earth makes only the smallest of appearances and that’s mostly so that Doctor Strange can make a nice cameo. Cate Blanchett makes for a brilliant villainess as Hela and Tessa Thompson makes a great addition to the team as the last surviving Asgardian Valkyrie.

There are a couple of fun cameos from Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth playing Loki and Thor respectively in an Asgardian play being performed when Thor returns home.
