Thor Ragnarok is a roller coaster ride
The wife always complains that I take her to watch superhero films on the pretext that they are not just about action but also have a bit of humour in them as well – and she doesn’t find any. Thor Ragnarok, the latest instalment of the Thor Saga has enough humour in it to be called an Action Comedy. This was the first time I watched an English movie where the whole movie hall was whistling, clapping and cheering at the protagonist. You expect this from one the Bollywood laugh riots, but not from a Marvel movie and certainly not when the Movie involves the Mighty Thor – The God of Thunder. By the way, he insists to be called the God and not Lord of Thunder. But we all were clapping and laughing and celebrating every strike that Thor landed on his enemies AND IT WAS GLORIOUS.
Thor Ragnarok takes us on a ride across the 9 realms, and bring us straight back to Asgard. You all have seen the trailer… ooh some of you haven’t – here it is.
A fantastic trailer isn’t it… So, where was I – Like you saw in the trailer, our blonde saviour is in Surturs Layer all tied up in chains and all Hell(A) is about to break loose. But, before he can stop Surtur, Hela and Skrull. Before he can get down to stopping Ragnarok and the destruction of his world. He must survive a gladiator match with his buddy and fellow Avenger (a friend from work) the Incredible Hulk. Without his trusted remote controlled hammer Mjölnir, which is still fresh in my mind as well.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron we were treated to an epic fight between the Incredible Hulk and Ironman. This time it was the Incredible Hulk versus Thor. It was epic and fantastic.
The movie is fast-paced and gripping. We were so engrossed that we didn’t even realize that the intermission was upon us. It’s a truly stellar star cast and all characters had a role to play in moving the story forward, don’t you hate it when good actors are just wasted. Cate Blanchett as Hela is ravenous, Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba reprise their roles as Odin all father and Heimdall respectively. Karl Urban as Skrull could have been more menacing, Tessa Thompson takes up the mantle of Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster could have been better, Tom Hiddleston as Loki is up to no good as usual, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk is absolutely smashing. I missed Rene Russo as Frigga she added balance to the madness that usually ensues in Action films. And last but not the least our saviour Point Break, Thor portrayed by Chris Hemsworth is Majestic – even in without his flowing tresses and hammer.
All in all Thor Ragnarok is a movie you should not miss for all the treasures in all 9 Realms. Go watch for yourself and let me know if you agree or disagree with me.
