Happy Sunday Novas! Last night I was FINALLY able to see the new Thor movie; Ragnarok! I know that I am a few weeks late, but I wanted to review the movie and if anyone hasn’t watched it yet, try to give your the insights to the movie! This is a spoiler free review so don’t worry about having to quickly close the post if I say something crazy!
Story: Thor Ragnarok takes place after the Thor Darkworld and Avengers 2 movies in the Marvel timeline. Thor has returned home to Asgard in lieu of dreams that he has been seeing about the destruction of his home in an event known as Ragnarok! After receiving confirmation that his dream is a premonition on what is prophesied to happen, Thor returns home to seek guidance from his father Odin.
(Note: In the lore, Ragnarok is the apocalypse where the gods Odin and Fenrir (a giant wolf ) battle!)
Thor must call upon the help of friends, strangers and even his mischievous brother Loki to save his home from certain destruction!
Ambience: The setting and colors of Ragnarok are exactly what you would want to see in a superhero movie. We have bright vibrant colors on Asgard and the warriors on the planet are strong and worthy of being subjects for Thor’s family.
Characters: The characters and the style of this movie is different from the first 2 Thor movies! Ragnarok, ironically takes on a more comical side of things with everyone throwing out puns. We are introduced to new characters that play their role very well. I’m sure we’ll be seeing most of these cosplay outfits at next year’s conventions! I have to admit, I really wanted to see this movie because I can’t get enough of Tom Hiddleson’s version of Loki! I feel as if he has played this role successfully and there’s plenty of Loki in Ragnarok!
It’s that time of the review where I will list my top reasons to Play or Skip Thor Ragnarok!
- A refreshing take on the Thor character and events (almost every scene has a joke or pun in it)
- If you are obsessed with Loki as I am! (He appears quite a bit)
- To stay up to date with the events happening in the Marvel Universe! (The movie connects to the Avengers and last Darkworld seamlessly)
- If you’re looking for the movie to be a replica of canon (liberal freedom was definitely taken)
- If you prefer a more action based Marvel movie
Final Thoughts: The movie lived up to my expectations! I wanted more Loki, which I received, Action and a great story! All of these elements are presented in Ragnarok with the addition of unexpected comedy. If you have liked any of the Marvel movies so far, you will definitely love Thor Ragnarok.
