Thor has become one of the most important parts of the Marvel Movie Universe without a doubt. He is strong, he is funny, and he has a hammer which has probably become more famous than the character himself.
Thor had two stand-alone movies and though the 2nd one got a mixed response from the public, it did make some shit load of money. And thus, we have the third movie in the Thor franchise, releasing in a few days!
So here is the short synopsis:
Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok–the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization–at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela.
But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger–the Incredible Hulk!
Reviews have come in, and well, it may not be surprise that this Marvel offering is getting good reviews! Wait…not good…OUTSTANDING ONES!
Here is a look at the reviews for the big blockbuster!
1. In a world of portentous blockbusters getting ever darker, it’s a joy to see one throwing on the disco lights. – Time Out (Thumbs Up)
2. “Thor: Ragnarok” is the most fun of the Thor movies by a long shot, but it is still very much a Thor movie for better or worse. – Associated Press (Thumbs Up)
3. It is definitely no classic, but an appreciably looser, livelier approach will reinvigorate those beginning to tire of the standard Marvel formula. – Herald Sun (Thumbs Up)
4. Thor: Ragnarok is the wittiest and most straightforwardly enjoyable of Marvel’s blockbusters. – BBC (Thumbs Up)
5. Both the banter and the fighting, it should be noted, are excellent, so whether you go to superhero movies for the glossy escapism or the pulse-pounding action, you’ll get your large soda’s worth. – TheWrap (Thumbs Up)
6. Thor: Ragnarok is fun in its own kinetic, comic book fashion but it doesn’t have any dramatic urgency whatsoever. – Independent (Thumbs Up)
7. Even tonal issues can’t upend the magic this movie taps into putting Thor and Hulk together as new best buddies, whether they’re throwing down in an arena or having a bromantic heart-to-heart. – USA Today (Thumbs Up)
8. It basically throws up its hands at its own ridiculousness and plays it all for laughs – and it gets them. – The Guardian (Thumbs Up)
9. You never have to wait more than five minutes for a joke or well-placed wisecrack. Anytime there’s a danger of someone giving a cliched, worthy speech about power and responsibility there’s a one liner delivered like a slap to the back of the head. – Total Film (Thumbs Up)
10. It’s funny, charming, dazzling, gorgeously designed, and full of actors you already like. – Daily Telegraph (Thumbs Up)
11. Easily the funniest Marvel film to date, a huge achievement this far down the line and something that will have audiences crying tears of laughter. – Daily Express (Thumbs Up)
12. As it arrives poised for a megalithic box-office haul, it might be helpful to keep in mind the advice offered by one character: “You cannot stop Ragnarok. Why fight it?” – Hollywood Reporter (Thumbs Up)
13. Strong visuals, gonzo action and a high comedy compensate for generic plotting, a padded midsection and a lack of drama. – Forbes (Thumbs Up)
14. Daft as a badger sandwich and twice as funny, this is vintage Waititi, and the boldest, most outrageously fun film Marvel has yet produced. – Empire (Thumbs Up)
Most are calling it the “funniest” Marvel movie ever! Thor: Ragnarok may just break some box-office records it seems! What are your expectations??
