Thor three (3) does not fail to please from the first scene of Thor being trapped and giving us a monologue.
Ragnarok is more fun than the other Thor movies and this train ride stopped at every comedic stop, making it one of the funniest movie (not just funniest superhero movie) of 2017.
But if you are hung on the flare that a movie, especially a superhero about such deep characters, shouldn’t be all laughs, Disney got you – the action scenes were epic. The battle between Thor & Hulk and in the ending when Thor mastered the use of his powers and had to take on Hela’s walking dead soldiers are both – must see.

The movie had dark moments and many people laid dead after the introduction of Hela, The Goddess of Death, so in every way Disney and Marvel have mastered the art of making a movie suitable for everyone to see and enjoy.

Thor: Ragnarök is the sequel to Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), and is the seventeenth film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and it is set two years after the defeat of Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

Here is the movie summary, in Asgard the prophecy of Ragnarok (the end of all things) were starting to unfold. As Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was about trying to make sure his dreams of Ragnarok does not come to pass, he was unaware that his actions were steps towards fulfilling it.

On his return to Asgard he finds Loki (Tom Hiddleston) reigning as a shape shift Odin. Thor very much aware of his brother’s tricks flushed him out and their search for Odin led them to Doctor Strange who took them to Norway where Odin was dying. Odin warned his sons that his death will release Hela (Odin’s firstborn played by Cate Blanchett) who will bring forth the end of Asgard.

No sooner did his life force disintegrate that Hela arrives, and a mistake from Loki led her to Asgard while he and Thor were trapped somewhere on another planet.
Now Thor must find a way back to Asgard to save his people from total annihilations from Hela, and he must form a team with Hulk who was also on that planet, a Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) who was the last surviving Valkyrie from Asgard and his brother Loki.

The movie’s plot can be seen to be taken from different storylines, a little adaptation from Planet Hulk was included. Hulk was added to the mix which changed the ending of the last Avenger movie when Hulk was last seen at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) travelling in a Quinjet.

The exclusion of Beta Ray Bill was felt by me when watching the movie, I have longed for his inclusion and I do hope a forth Thor will bring him forth.

Here is another Disney/Marvel masterpiece that is doing very well review wise and commercial wise, go see it, it was very much worth it.
