When the trailer of Thor Ragnarok released earlier this year, it got everyone very excited about the film as it gave a vibe of something new and different that would be coming our way. Let’s find out if this is true or not.
The story takes off where the last Thor movie ended. Even if you haven’t seen the previous movies, you can easily understand the story. Ragnarok is a prophecy which says Asgard will be destroyed soon. Odin is gone, Thor’s hammer is destroyed and the Goddess of Death has taken over Asgard. It’s now up to Thor to save his world in any way possible.
Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba reprise their respective characters. The film also has new characters played by Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson and Jeff Goldblum. This time we have a lady villain Hela, which is stylistically played by Kate Blanchett. She is brutal, dangerous and sexy.
Director Taika Waititi brings in the technicolor aesthetics and peppy soundtracks. But the story and characters become a second priority. Individual character arcs are vague and the characters themselves feel unrecognisable. Too much of humor sometimes brings down the seriousness of the scene. But that’s how Marvel movies are nowadays.
Because of the improved CGI and VFX, the Hulk looks more real and the action sequences are a visual treat. It is also quite a treat to listen to Hulk’s dialogues which so far has been a rare occurrence.The gladiator style fight between Hulk and Thor is a fun spectacle to watch.
Overall, Thor: Ragnarok is a standard Marvel action blockbuster which will delight your senses. So grab some popcorn and get entertained.
