So this movie premiered in Poland today and I just got home from the theater. I have two things to say: this is hands down the best installment in the Thor trilogy and it also definitely ranks somewhere in the top 5 MCU movies for me.
This movie was a wild ride from start to finish. The story was a ton of fun and so many things happened along the way, keeping you engaged at all times. While I do love slow movies that allow their scenes to breathe, the crazy pace of this one worked in its favor. There wasn't as much action as I had expected, but we did get some cool fights and general destruction. In the typical Marvel fashion, there were a lot of jokes and most of them were really, really hilarious. Some of the MCU movies try way too hard to be funny and I end up feeling annoyed at how many quips they cram in there, but in Ragnarok, the humor definitely worked. My personal favorites were the "Get help" scene, Thor's story about Loki turning into a snake and Bruce falling onto the Rainbow Bridge (especially Fenrir's reaction). Those had me laughing uncontrollably. And on the other end of the spectrum, there was quite a lot of emotional weight to both Odin's demise and the fall of Asgard. The movie struck a good balance between the two, keeping things exciting and light-hearted most of the time, but not being afraid to go a little deeper when the situation called for it.
As for the acting, Chris Hemsworth seemed to be really enjoying himself and while I'd often found Thor to be the blandest Avenger in the past, he had a lot more personality and charisma to him here. He was extremely likable and funny, but he was also the hero you rooted for throughout the movie. Cate Blanchett didn't get to do much as Hela, to my disappointment. She looked incredible and she did the best she could with what she was given, but in the end, the Goddess of Death didn't do much in terms of breaking the tradition of one-dimensional, evil-for-the-sake-of-it MCU villains. But she did at least seem to relish and enjoy her evilness. Tessa Thompson stole the movie for me. She was amazing as Valkyrie. She had wonderful chemistry with Thor and I like the idea of the two of them together, she's a much better love interest for him than Jane, but she was by no means reduced to that role here (thankfully!). She was a fully-fledged character with her own arc and personality. She was brash, badass and absolutely deadly in a fight while still having a more vulnerable, softer side and dealing with horrible trauma. She reminded me of Jessica Jones in that way. Watching her go from a drunken scavenger back to a mighty warrior ready to fight for her home and her king was a pleasure. I absolutely loved her and I hope to see more of her in the future MCU movies. Tom Hiddleston delivered as always, Mark Ruffalo was a great addition and Bruce's partnership with Thor was fantastic, and the supporting cast was also very good.
The soundtrack. Man, the soundtrack. 11/10, totally buying it. One of the best I've heard in a while.
The cinematography was gorgeous. So many colors, so many beautiful shots (the one with the Valkyries bathed in light riding towards Hela who was surrounded by darker colors? Holy shit, that looked like a baroque painting. Absolutely stunning). It was a pleasure to watch. The special effects were simply outstanding as well. Fenris/Fenrir was magnificent and let's just say I want ten angry, giant wolves immediately.
I had high hopes for this movie. The first Thor was pretty good, the second was meh (perfectly adequate, but painfully forgettable), but there was a lot of hype around this one and I really wanted it to be great. And it was! I had a blast watching it and I'd definitely see it again. Every standalone hero trilogy in the MCU so far has had at least one fantastic installment. Iron Man had the first one. Captain America had The Winter Soldier. Now, Ragnarok joins the circle. I'm very happy that it turned out as well as it did.
Is Marvel just going to keep increasing the comedy value?How much is enough?
Thor Ragnarok is a comedy action movie, or simply put ->
| FIRST THOUGHT |
Take Thor, mix it with Hulk.Put your hand on the "comedy" button, press it and never release it.
It's this movie.
And it doesn't actually stop, throughout the entire time. You can't quite figure out how much it takes itself seriously. And it's so goddamn good.
Before you go on about and watch it, you need to put yourself in a spectrum where you're going to enjoy senseless beating and constant, crispy comedy.
It is definitely worth watching. It is worth your time, your money and putting on clothes to get out of your home. (Or just do it like me, I never put on clothes.)
| STORY & ACTORS |
Well, what can be said about the story on a Marvel movie?However you want to put it, it's actually nothing so special, there's obviously no level of "deepness" to it. It's very linear, of course, with a happy ending - Although I have to admit, very enjoyable.
It's structured for the sole purpose of starting what is going to be the actual, gigantic movie: Infinity War - while closing down the history and settling the character of Thor for good. (Much better than what they did with Iron Man)
I think Marvel, with this one, truly captured the perfect combination of "comedy" and "action" to it's MCU. Sorting out everything that lacked in the second installment of "Guardians of Galaxy". The comedy was throughout really enjoyable, it was predictable, but we can't pretend much of it - it's classical "Thor & Hulk" memes.
The story also doesn't hold to a very interesting villain. It's really unfortunate because of Hela's position in the comics, but at the same time I can understand what the movie wanted to speak about, so I really cannot be as frustrated as I did with other movies. cough*Wonder Woman*cough
It does, at the same time, bring up new, fun characters (To the MCU). Korg (voice acted by also director Taika Waititi) was an absolute blast and pure enjoyment at everything he said. It can come out as pathetic or annoying, but that just means that you shouldn't watch superhero movies.
I can't talk enough about comedy without entering the realm of "acting", and in doing so, eventually to the actors.
/I will only "in-depth note" some of the actors\
I'll say this, and it took me SIX movies to finally agree and accept it: Chris Hemsworth brought Thor to a level as high as Robert Downey Jr. and Hugh Jackman did with both Iron-Man and Wolverine. I can't "unsee" a Thor that isn't Chris Hemsworth, and this movie put on that thought the final stone.
He showed passion to a character that ended up developing itself positively in barely 2 hours and 10 minutes.
Mark Ruffalo, boy, they finally made him lose that terrifying, horrible gloomy attitude of the Avengers movie. He finally embraced his nature, and so Mark had more room to depict a promising version of Bruce Banner.
Cate Blanchett was disintegrated by the flatness of how they shaped Hela. The villain was disregarded and had no soul. It was just big talk, terrible powers, besides being a Charlie's Angel and ultimately she didn't show anything positive for the movie, except some stuff you will need to see.
Tessa Thompson was a FANTASTIC Brunnhilde. She portrayed that character to a point where the seconds passed and I loved her more and more. I can really say nothing more or add to it, just watch her.
I won't talk about how the Hulk acted because you need to see it first-hand. He's the big star here, remember, this is Hulkhor: Ragnasmask.
Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster is fucking weird, man... Weirdly good?
| CINEMATOGRAPHY |
Here's where it gets interesting.There's a load of color combinations that I found soothing, very soothing and that is perfect because it brings out from the screen the variety and SATURATION of what this movie actually is. The palettes were perfect.
I found the CGI, in some of the action/fighting scenes to be lacking a little bit, especially in very fast-paced shots it looked very unrealistic. And the same can be said about everything, to the brittle of walls getting destroyed, to some of the weapons portrayed.I don't actually know what happened there, maybe I was too focused on it and eventually could see past the CGI (which is a big mistake to make), but unless you are actively trying to do so it's really minor.
Choreographies, I was actually impressed. The past "Thor" movies were just a bunch of "tank & spank" moves. Fortunately, this wasn't entirely the case, near the end, it lacked a bit, but it's not very noticeable considering everything that's going on.
Music, there was distinct moment where it went from a more classical route to then being mixed out with a more electronic feel, it was a really hearing stimulating oxymoron, so to speak. I will never get tired of The Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin.
| FINAL THOUGHT |
All things considered, if we're about to take this logically...
The pros definitely beat the cons in this one.It is, on that thought, WORTH A WATCH.
And I'll add something that might stir up some grunt:
My official "favorite MCU movie" has changed.
Movie: 8/10Hulk: 11/10

AGAIN.... 60 people alredy voted and we haven´t even seen the trailer of this movie
Most of us have come to expect alot from the Marvel Universe. After all, with great power does come great responsibility. However the latest installation of Thor leaves something to be desired. beginning right away, the musical score attempts to mimic an 80s style scifi feeling. It actually makes many of the important scenes in the film lose their actual significance. Worse than the music though, is the lackluster script. If you took Scooby and Shaggy in a room they most likely could have created a better dialogue than what is seen in Thor. The actors themselves even seem to have trouble delivering the lines and a sense of boredom is felt through the screen. there are many reasons for this, one of the main being that most films today are filmed almost exclusively in chroma key rooms. It can be very challenging at times, even for the best actors, to adapt to this style and successfully bring a fully realistic sense of feeling to the screen. All in all, while the graphics are somewhat decent (aside from a few glitchy distance shots and such that can be found in any film regardless of age) the film is a gross failure of the Marvel Universe. Even the star studded cast couldn't save this film from it's multitude of flaws. It makes Thor, god of Thunder, seem like Thor, dworf of the puddle.
Ugh, here we go again, I have such a dejavu to May right now:
Pros;- Hiddleston (!), Hemsworth and Thompson are very good in their roles.- Characterization of The Hulk.- The fight scene between Hulk and Thor.- It’s unpredictable, and things have stakes.- The visuals.- There is a very interesting story underneath it all.
Okay:- Blanchett as Hela. She just doesn’t get enough to do, and cannot compare to Keaton in Homecoming. The campy angle worked though. - Characterization of Valkyrie, I wanted to know more about her, but she worked fine as is. - Most of the action.
Cons:- Inconsistently paced (the beginning is very rushed, then Sakaar moves very slow, and the end is somewhere inbetween those two).- Tonally inconsistent (the stuff on Asgard feels like a different movie than the stuff on Sakaar; it’s like LoTR and GotG)- I found Ruffalo’s acting very shotty.- Most of the humour fell flat for me (especially Goldblum, man, he just did not work for me here)- One extended cameo felt very shoehorned in, and needed more exposition, as it made no sense as is. - Some of the CGI needed to be polished more, especially the digital replacement they used for Hela during fight scenes.
I was really looking forward to this movie, even though I am not the greatest Thor fan. However, the trailer looked interesting, I love the 80s style with the colours, it promised to be a wild movie with a great antagonist - I mean seriously - what could go wrong with Cate Blanchett, and even better in a dark gothic look?
Well, I was absolutely disappointed. Seriously, what where they thinking when shooting/editing this movie? There is no plot, the story is totally random and has no meaning at all anymore. It's just like a bad 90s sitcom that is progressing from one joke to the next, and this time it didn't stop at anything - stupidity, slapstick, vulgarity, we have it all, and without any style or niveau. I mean seriously "Oh, I'm drunk, I will just fall down" (as an entrance of a new and important character), "oh, I just saw hulks penis", "now we'll have to fly into the anus", etc. What's the target audience of this movie, childish boys in their puberty? I think even for them this is rather embarrassing than funny....
Epic, dramatic fighting scenes, e.g. when Hela defeats Asgard are equaly destroyed by stupid jokes as are emotinal scenes. Someone died? Just make a joke. Haha, and let's go on. Due to this, this movie wasn't exciting to me at all, it wasn't emotional, it was just dull. This movie is so jokes-packed, that even after the first three minutes (and did they really just do the stupid rope-joke in the introduction three times?! It was hardly funny the first time, it was annoying the second time, and the third I was angered, because obviously the director must think I am stupid), I had enough. And that is somewhat sad, because in the mass of stupid jokes there are some moments that actually where pretty great and that would have functioned superb in isolation. Take Jeff Goldblums character that is refreshingly eccentric and funny. Or Korg - great humoristic character. But having a more than 2 hour sitcom, this doesn't work anymore, even if it's good.
I do believe the story had potential, I mean they had a great soundtrack, stunning visuals, perfect CGI, absolutely gorgeous colours and scenes, a really great cast, I already mentioned the great Jeff Goldblum, who I found ingenious. Cate Blanchett is always a win, and she could have brought so much to this movie. And Tessa Thompson also stuck out to me - great charisma, interesting character. But none of them gets enough chance to really portrait their character, none of them gets any dept. Especially Cate Blanchetts talent is totally wasted - she could have been absolutly evil, strong, powerful - the perfect villain. But she isn't - the antagonist is (as with so many comic movies these days) a joke and a total disaster. There is hardly any substance, much to short screen time for character develpment, for backgrounds, for some seriousness. Nothing.
Seriously, I wouldn't have been surprised if there was laughter from the off.....
An exercise in cliche and coinidence. The special effects are cheap-looking and obviously made for 3D.
Question: When did they decide that every Marvel movie has to have the exact tone of Guardians of the Galaxy?
By far, one of the best films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! 2017 is definitely the reign of Marvel. I have to admit that the Thor films weren't the best, but this one is remarkable.
The first two Thor films were boring, but this one made up for it! I loved how Thor's funny side was more evident in here than in the previous films. AND DAMN, that haircut, though.
HULK + THOR ??? This is honestly the combination I never thought I needed. Their chemistry is so great and so natural, I never thought they'd bring so much tears in my eyes.
Tessa Thompson as the Valkyrie. The way she brought life to her character was simply breathtaking. I'm definitely 100% more anticipated to see her in the next films.
Although, the plot was a little too shallow for me. There was no ultimate climax that made the film exciting. Yes, the Hulk vs Thor scene was amazing, but other than that, it seemed like a generic superhero plot.
Lastly, is it just me or is it weird that they're stuck in space, while the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. manage to get in a space jail cell?
Unlike most of the other Marvel movies (except maybe Guardians), this is a transcendental thrill ride. The story is a little weak, but there is still a lot of fun to be had. From the director of one of my fave movies of last year, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, this retains much of that film's humour, with a few of the cast members popping up occasionally. The film will probably divide Marvel diehards, but I'm glad the execs allow for some creative diversions to keep things fresh within the series.
After Spiderman now this ?!?! If this is the direction Marvel is going with its movies than this was the last one I watched. It is already the first I quit watching. Never got into it, bored after 15 min out after 15 more. Even Cate Blanchett, of whom I am an avid admirer, could not convince me to watch more. Way to much comedy and what's worse, comedy without niveau. I am not opposed to comedy but at the right amount and at the right time. If every second scene/sentence is a joke than basically your whole movie becomes one. As someone wrote: all that was missing was the laughter from the off.
This movie has way too much comedy. It was okay but it definitely was not the best Marvel movie. I really could not take this movie seriously
My favorite superhero movie ever. A kaleidoscopic, absurd, serious, hilarious, super killer blast of endless fun...
I knew that the movie was going full comedy with a twist of an indie production, but sadly we found a very similar movie to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1, having many similarities in the design of the cities, clothes and spaceships. We lose what made Thor movies interesting, and that's the nordic references. Loki plays his most boring role in the MCU, he basically does nothing related to the plot, just repeating the same "I hate you" actions as always. However, Thor does evolve, having a more interesting development in his relations with other characters. You will have fun with this film, but it's far from the best of Marvel movies.
Weird as hell sci fi, fantasy and conedy. Seems like a bit of a mess and that is because it follows no standard tropes of storytelling. A multi million dollar gamble that is sure to polarize fans and critics. Not that there is anything wrong with that. 7/10
Cool movie. The Thor movies are way better than all the Avenger movies. Incredible detail and effects. Awesome humor.
The whole movie just feels like a big joke, of course we’ve come to know that Marvel likes a bit more comedy in their superhero films but boy oh boy did they go overboard with this one. I don’t know if it’s because I prefer more serious takes on superheroes but before you leave the hater reply hear me out.
I feel like you have to have a mix to cater to audiences both like me and the people that like the joking around. Other MCU movies at this point had a fairly ok mix for my taste but when you go 250% like on this film (or like Guardians of the Galaxy) you end up with things like scenes that are supposed to have emotional weight like the ending scene on the escape vessel or even The Hulk's identity crisis come off as cherry and funny which they may not need to be. I feel like films like Wonder Woman (as a DC example, it’s flaws aside) and The Winter Soldier (as an MCU example, also it’s flaws aside) to be a good mix of both seriousness and “jokiness” and the ratings reflect it.
Understand that I don’t think it’s a bad movie, It’s very well produced, has a great cast and it's very well directed as we’ve come to expect from Marvel’s high budget. It’s just that this kind of constant (dare I say) forced comedy isn’t really my cup of tea. If you like this kind of dynamic you’re gonna love it.

[7.6/10] One of the best things about the original Star Wars film was its characters. The special effects were innovative, and the myth arc was substantial, but it all might have fallen apart if you hadn’t felt the warmth, jostling, and connection between Luke, Leia, and Han. Thor: Ragnorak, while not nearly as good as A New Hope can rely on the same saving grace.
It too, can boast some pretty impressive special effects. With scant few minutes of screen time spent on Earth, a first for a Thor movie, director and franchise newcomer Taika Waititi goes wild with imagination in Asgard, new locale Sakaar, and other spots throughout the (conspicuously unguarded) galaxy. The design work in the film is impeccable, with candy-colored garbage dumps; lurid, pro-wrestling style showdowns, and fresco-like flashbacks. There’s the expect quotient of CGI combat and magical mayhem, commendable if common, but Ragnarok delivers on the promise of the weirdness and variety of Marvel’s cosmic realm.
The film also delivers its own myth arc. This one centers on a prophesied apocalypse, the oft named-dropped Ragnarok, that will supposedly leave Asgard in ruins. Thor aims to prevent this from happening, whether it means stealing the crown of a fire demon, defending against the ambitious, lebensraum-seeking Hela, or foiling the plans of his own treacherous brother Loki. The main plot of the film sees Hela, Ragnarok’s major villain, trying to take over Thor’s homeland, with eyes on doing the same to the whole universe, while Thor, stranded on the forgotten planet Sakaar tries to marshal resource and allies to return home and take her down.
But as decent a framework as that provides for a superhero flick, it almost feels perfunctory to the film. So do the character arcs, the good guy/bad guy fights, and the inevitable continuity nods and cameos. Instead, what makes the film work is giving Waititi a bunch of new toys and letting him welcome the audience into his sandbox for a while. Ragnarok doesn’t break much new ground for the genre, or make anything more than cosmetic changes to its major characters are when the credits roll, but it’s entertaining as hell from moment to moment, and that earns it plenty of goodwill.
That’s not a shock after Waititi’s last directorial effort, the hilarious What We Do in the Shadows. The film, a vampire mockumentary, has an overarching story that gives it some direction, and continuing developments that matter, but it’s more a collection of amusing scenes and episodes than a tightly-written, propulsive story. Ragnarok has a similar persistent but not unwelcome shagginess to it. The main plot takes forever to kick into gear, the various scenes sprinkled in from different corners of the galaxy either deliver exposition or focus more on our just heroes hanging around together, and by the time the inevitable third act uberclash arrives, it feels like more of a necessary capper than a culmination of what came before.
And yet, it’s an enjoyable, if occasionally lumpy two hours of superhero fun, and much of that comes from the simple joys of watching these characters bounce off one another. Chris Hemsworth has found his light as Thor, bringing the comic rounding to the high fantasy hero. Tom Hiddleston is one of the few breakout villains from the Marvel stable, and acquits himself with the usual aplomb. The trailers give away that Hulk is along for this ride, and between the green monster’s angry toddler-esque demeanor, and Mark Ruffalo returning the franchise’s fish out of water favor, he’s a fun addition to this part of the world. And Tessa Thompson joins the fray as Valkyrie, whose standard tragic backstory isn’t nearly as compelling as her presence as a hard-drinking, no B.S. “scrapper” who fits nicely into Waititi’s milieu.
And that’s before you even get to the antagonists. Neither Hela, the film’s big bad, nor Grandmaster, the intermediate annoyance, have all that much to do in the movie. The former issues the usual assortment of threats and boasts, and the latter is given the usual corrupt leader schtick.
But that’s the beauty of enlisting ringers like Cate Blanchett and Jeff Goldblum to breathe life into these underwritten roles. Blanchett vamps it up with abandon as Hela. Between the killer design work and Blanchett’s presence, Hela feels far more textured and compelling than she might seem on the page, as the outstanding actress goes big but wins big. By the same token, Goldblum is at his Goldblum-y peak, with the stuttery, self-possessed charm that makes Grandmaster a boon to the film’s comic intentions and more than just an easily-overcome obstacle.
Add in ringers like Karl Urban as Hela’s lieutenant and finding a distinctive personality for a generic brute, and Idris Elba, who returns as Heimdall and is capable of making even the most shopworn blockbuster banalities sound profound, and you get a movie that’s just fun to watch at a scene-to-scene basis, even when it’s not clear that it’s really going anywhere.
That’s not to say that Ragnarok has nothing on its mind. While the metaphor never gets beyond skin deep, there’s an interesting parallel in England and other colonial empires at the center of the film. Hela is a partisan of a bygone era, where Odin conquered neighboring realms to build his kingdom. Thor is the inheritor of that kingdom, uneasy with that role and its legacy. The conflict between the two, and the confrontations and recriminations issued against Odin, nod toward the same reckonings happening in the modern world as industrialized nations try to reconcile their humanitarian presents with their dark, colonial pasts. Notions of erasing uncomfortable histories, finding pride in peoples rather than places, loom large in Ragnarok, and the subtext is apparent.
But apart from that idea, the third Thor movie is pretty lax about what it’s saying about its characters. Thor learns a lesson akin to “the real power was in your heart all along.” Loki jumps back and forth along the heel/face line of demarcation as many times as you’d expect. And Hulk, Banner, and Valkyrie all find ways to confront their pasts in ways that, shockingly, dovetail nicely with the quest to defeat Hela.
Those arcs, however, aren’t really the point. The point is Thor assuring Hulk that he doesn’t like Banner, and then assuring Banner that he doesn’t like Hulk. The point is Grandmaster making fun of a depowered “Lord of Thunder” for his “sparkles.” The point is Valkyrie casually electrifying her prey until it’s compliant while sipping some intergalactic brew. The point is random items thrown at Loki, wry asides from Hela, and funny, soft-spoken rock monsters.
Waititi & Co. aren’t out to revolutionize the superhero film. They’re not varying the formula all that much or taking the characters in markedly new directions or crafting some elegantly-constructed tale. They’re giving you two hours of creative, endearing, and eminently laugh-worthy entertainment, as enjoyable in chunks and stretches as it as a whole. Ragnarok may be no more than the sum of its parts, but those parts are too enjoyable to care.
Best Thor movie by far, and one of the best from Marvel. So vibrant, colorful, with such an amazing soundtrack! It's funnier than GOTG and so much more relatable. All the characters are on point: Hela was a great, great villain and Dr. Strange made a short but awesome appearance. And once again Marvel showed us how much it nails on the trailers, things did not happed as I expected they would from what they showed us. The only complaint I have is that sometimes I felt like the jokes were a bit longer than deserved. But most of them were great and it was probably the movie I laughed the most in recent years. The only downside for me was Mark Ruffalo. He seemed like he took a little time to click, it just didn't seem to fit the rest of the cast. He looked like a different character, whereas Chris Hemsworth was able to mantain most of Thor's spirit on a movie that has a very different approach to the previous he was on.
I also liked the bold moves they performed on this movie. Odin dead, Asgard destroyed, Thor missing and eye and without the Hammer... He suddenly went from least favorite avenger to a very interesting character to follow on Infitine War. I just hope for more Asgardian accent moving forward!
Happy they got rid of Portman, hated her!Anyways, nice movie, could've been better, if not for some plot holes here and there.
I still remember watching it and how I reacted to some scenes that totally surprised me. It was so good, one of the best movies Marvel has ever made. Besides we get to know more about Asgard and what it was like before, how Asgard was conquered and the secrets he kept from his sons.
What a fresh relief from formula. No hammer, no problem. Loved this film thoroughly.
The amount of jokes in the film is such that it becomes a parody losing the essence of what would be a superhero action movie
I think it is clear I’m not the world’s biggest comic-book film fan but it is fair to say nor am I a negative detractor, I just don’t have anything invested in them. So for every Guardian of the Galaxy that I loved, there is an opposite and equal Avengers: Age of Ultron that nearly sends me to sleep.
The very thing that attracts so many hardcore fans to the franchise of the Marvelverse, the big characters, the bright colours, the non-stop action and destruction sends me to sleep at times. I think certain people can get desensitised to the kicking, punching, flying baddies, explosions and buildings tumbling down. Others love it and I understand that.
I find some of the smartmouth antics of seemingly superconfident characters annoying and no matter how anyone argues it there is no peril for any of these characters whose superpowers they don’t seem to use very well. Dr Strange basically has control over the world and seemingly several others.
I’m a fan of Taika Waititi so it pains me to say that I felt that the humour used throughout this film didn’t seem to fit or was sitting on top of the story. That’s not to say it was not funny at many points but for some reason, it didn’t seem slot in naturally as it did in Guardians of the Galaxy or Dead Pool for instance.
The performances of the main characters are as usual top notch with Jeff Goldblum way up on the quirko-meter as only he can be, Chris Hemsworth is Thor and he has the perfect enemy in the slinky Cate Blanchett who makes being ruthlessly evil seem somehow appealing.
Ragnarok has good points and it will definitely appeal to fans of the genre, although I have read that hardcore fans are not all onside with the humour that is front and centre. I do understand their point of view on this but perhaps not as vehemently as some and not for the same reason.
So to the disagreement and anger of some no doubt I can say Thor: Ragnarok was okay but that is it, just okay. The story at times was extremely silly, the spectacular set pieces, as usual, were spectacular and loud and banging, the comedy big and bold and the whole film was Marveltastic.
I watched it from start to end but I would not watch it again. I have watched Guardians of the Galaxy more than once. That is probably the biggest difference.
A good fun movie which doesn't take itself too seriously, that's the way superhero movies should be
Who doesn't love the combination of Hulk and Thor for the ultimate battle of the Gods. This is the funnier combination of the Marvel Universe, diving deep into the Asgardian story with a comedic twist. Enjoy the ride, its a light movie and filled with action. Thor was the main character but the Hulk just shined in this movie, simple as that.
Must See Movie!
I feel a bit guilty liking this...
Somehow my mind says that this is yet another cookie cutter Marvel movie, but...well...I had a good time watching Thor: Ragnarok. Actually...I had a VERY good time watching Thor: Ragnarok.
The comedy is great, the action scenes and effects borders on brilliant, the music IS brilliant, and the story and acting...well...this IS a Marvel movie. You can't expect everything to be up to par.
To be serious for a moment, if you are into the Marvel universe, don't miss this one. It's one the better of the later Marvel outings. Mainly because it's a bit different. Watch it, and you'll see what I mean.

It's a Tie, between Thor Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 !
I have to say honestly i expected something else from Thor:Ragnarok,something better actually.Im a big marvel fan and this is not what Thor is. Please leave the comedy for comedy heroes like deadpool or GotG. This "hero saga" its more mature than jokes about Hulk being the stupidest avenger...Its funny but i dont think its supposed to be funny,i laughed more than i got thrilled, and i think thrill and those scared/surprised inspirations that where acomplished much better in Civil War for example were lacking in this movie. You got to rethink your choices, the destruction of Asgard,Thors home,should be more significant,even though Asgard its not the place,its still where Thor grew. I hope they dont do the same in Black Panther and Infinity Wars...
Good story, comedy, actions and characters. Loved it!
wtf with the haircut!!! II know they were like it in the comics but cmon!
The Hulk doing anything but smashing stuff is stupid
The movie is good! But is some a bridg for infinit war. They could have explored planet Hulk more. Incidentally, Planet Hulk deserved a solo movie
Marvel decidiu dar um outro tom para o filme do Thor, os dois primeiros tiveram outra pegada mais pé no chão e cores mais densas e até mesmo tendo alívio cômicos no filme. Já este tem uma pegada mais Guardiões da Galaxia, bem leve e com cores vibrantes, acho que o personagem se renovou no Universo Cinematográfico da Marvel mesmo nas HQs não tendo muito a ver com ele essa pegada de Ragnarok pra mim funcionou muito bem.
Pontos Fortes:Hulk Consciente de si e falando.Tom do filme renovado.A personagem da Valquíria funciona bem.Lutas ao som de Immigrant Song
Pontos Fracos:Loki poderia ser aproveitado de outra forma.A morte de Odin poderia ser marcante assim como a morte da Frigga.Surtur poderia ser melhor.
wish i was fucking kidding when i said this but it's been a week and tessa thompson's performance as valkyrie is still the reason i found out i am bisexual
love the revengers. awesome movie like always from marvel.
Loved it. Thor is awesome.This was super fun and have a lot of action.The new characters are cool. I hope we get to see them more. Especially Korg and Valkyrie. He was hilarious and she was fierce.
This is more comedy than action but did I feel like I was cheated of watching a super-hero movie? Absolutely not! And the comedy is in from the beginning. You can't stop laughing throughout all the serious moments because there's a wise-crack right in the middle of it. I think that was needed since there wasn't much of a story to follow and yet entertainment was thoroughly provided.
Just saw the movie
I gotta say Best Marvel Movie Ever
The only time I said that was for Guardians of the Galaxy, but this movie was truly the best
I won't say that this movie was better than I expected cuz to be honest they marketed it very well and my expectations were very high and it successfully reached what I was hoping for
The amount of comedy in this film was amazing, this movie was really really funny LOL, especially with the Hulk scenes I couldn't help myself
I liked what they did with the Hulk he was scary yet very very cute, I know it's strange to call The Incredible Hulk as cute but he truly was, they made him like a child and he talks to himself in the third person LOL, even others
Hulk stay, Thor go
Hulk stay, Thor go
Of course everything else also was amazing the visuals, the story, the FXs and the fight scenes
Hella was one of the best female characters I've ever seen, she was hot and BADASS, she was simply amazing
The last thing that shocked me was that they went with the story of Thor loosing one of his eyes like his father, I gotta say I wasn't expecting that at all and I don't know if they showed pics of this moment before but I haven't heard anything so it was the first time I've seen this in the theater
Anyway, I don't think any Marvel solo movie gonna top this but lets hope for the best
Very well paced, doesn't take itself too serious. Just an extremely accessible and fun film. The mashup of themes and the cinematography were spot on. I can't really put the film into words, it just gives you a feeling. As cheesy as that may sound.
Hilarious! I never actually felt any suspense regarding the conflict/plot, but all characters were great and Hela (Cate Blanchett) sure had me swooning.
A movie deserving of the characters of Thor and The Hulk.
A heavily stylised action packed and humorous ride on an 80's acid dream.
Pacing was a little off and the plot was terribly cliché in parts
Goldblum and Waititi were gems.
It premiered here in Brazil yesterday, and i just saw it... DAMN, TAIKA WAITITI, YOU SAVED THOR'S FRANCHISE! I really, really enjoyed this movie. Fun and action packed, this third movie of the Lord of Thunder, oops, God of Thunder, is really good. Great performances (hello Cate Blanchett, you slayed!), some plot twists and a great ending. Just pay attention to the first post-credits scene ;) I will totally see it again on theater!
Marvel has finally done it - a fantastic Thor movie. Much like other movies by Taika Waititi, the humour is fantastic - my audience had full-on laughter countless times in the film. All actors play their parts extremely well, the cinematography for a few shots is amazing and there are a lot of extra cameos to watch out for including some from Waititi's previous films. It could be argued that the film has pacing issues at the start but if you're up-to-date with the Marvel universe you'll enjoy this fresh approach to the start of a film within the franchise. As always with Marvel movies, there are two extra scenes so stay all the way through the credits (although the more important scene is the first one)
So, they turned this into a comedy?... Well, I'm cool with that, I had a lot of fun with this movie! :DIt's all very reminiscent of "Guardians of the Galaxy" (the colourful scenery and characters, even the '80s style soundtrack), it feels like they were trying to see if the same formula would stick on a different franchise. And guess what? It did. Be warned, though, this movie can get quite hilarious, at times, to the point of it actually being weirdly hilarious, considering the kind of movie it is and the tone of its predecessors.Even though it sort of feels a bit out of place in a Thor movie, the retrowave soundtrack is great (for those of you who care about this sort of thing)!
If you want a FUN superhero movie, forget "Homecoming" (unfortunately, since I'm a Spidey fan), "Ragnarok" is what you'll want to see. I guarantee you that the fun is, huh, guaranteed.
Never been a fan of the Thor movies till I watched this one that used the right hammer and hits the nail in the right spot, specially with It's humour and action also loved It's opening. Collection worthy.
I just finished a small production movie called Thor: Ragnarok….maybe you have heard of it or maybe if you’re lucky you might’ve even seen a trailer for this movie.
Ok totally kidding of course you know about this movie!! And you will hear a lot about it too in the coming days. Europe was lucky but alas America has to wait until the 3rd of November. So I will keep this spoiler free.
Not a real spoiler is that this is the 3rd movie of the Thor movies, and to my opinion it is the best of the 3!! Do you have to see the other 2 movies? No you don’t but it’s always better to do so. This movie starts not long after the Avengers: Age of Ultron, so it might be smart to rewatch that one again to know where some of the characters are. But it’s not a complete must, but I kinda think Marvel geeks already know all the movies by heart
Also not a spoiler is that this movie is also about the Grandmaster, who is played by Jeff Goldblum. The Grandmaster is the leader of the Contest of Champions, which is also a game app for Iphone and Android. It’s a little more funny if you play this game like I do (find MogwayLavendel in the game )
This movie is action packed with great scenery, music, humor and some nods to other movies.Unfortunately I saw it in 2D, but I am definitely going to see this one in the Dolby Atmos Ultra Laser 3D, yes this movie is so good that i’m going to see it another time. It’s definitely my 2nd favorite movie of the year. (My favorite movie of the year is of course that other small Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2)Be sure to check back next week for a spoiler filled review.I recommend this movie A LOT!! It’s a 10 out of 10!!!
Thor: Ragnarok is the "Friends" of Marvel movies. Thor is Chandler, The Hulk is Joey and Ross is Doctor Strange. It's good light entertainment, but I still prefer Suicide Squad.
The best moments have been the fight of Hulk against Thor and Thor ignited like God of the Thunder, that not of the hammers.
Great film. Infinity Wars is coming...
Enjoyed it but definitely wasn't as good as first two.
Muito bom, sensacional com efeitos incríveis.
It's so funny! And starting with The Immigrant Song just sets a great action tone.
Was an OK film but didn't lived up to expectations.
Such a blast! Entertaining through and through. Great end cap to the Thor series and solid entry into the bigger MCU picture. Genuinely funny, with some great visuals and action set pieces. A little annoyed at how a few characters were handled, but the rest of the movie makes up for that.
I sure hope this is the last sequel in the Thor franchise. It was a good movie, he should go out with bang. Everything gets played out these days.
The only Thor movie I really enjoyed. Also
WHY DOES HE LOOK LIKE LUKE MITCHELL IN THE COVER ABOVE?
I sadly missed this in the theatre but made up for it now in 4K. Of course I knew this movie had to be good, because the good reviews were everywhere last year, but I was pleasently surprised that it was this awesome. The film is fun, has a nice story, an epic villain and a brilliant soundtrack. For sure the best part of the Thor trilogy.
Its a great movie with a different tone from the first two, im glad they let Hemsworth try his comedic side. Jeff Goldblum was golden in his Grandmaster character as well.
This movie is so well done, so fun, and the actors finally feel free to just have a good time. Cate Blanchett chews the scenery and gives Thor and Loki a run for their money. Give it a watch, it's Hela fun!
very funny movie, i loved it
película palomera, lejos de ser una peli de superhéroes es una comedia.
Absolutely Expected Something Different But I'm Impressed with this Film The Best One By Far.. comedy was over the top in some instances but overall Made me laugh and when they got back into the Story It was Great as was the action I Recommend this with positively that u will enjoy this film
Funny and really cool to see Marvel adapting these really "comic"-y story lines
..by Odin's beard this was the funniest Marvel movie so far!
Another deadpool movie in the bad way, bad jokes, good guys punching bad guys with music, topics everywhere...Disappointing
that was a tremendously good soundtrack :)
Loved this movie. From start to end it's nothing but pure entertainment. I can't believe people are giving it bad reviews. This is a must watch movie!!
Simply one of the best super-hero movies I've seen to date. Great cast. great comedy. great action.
Taika Waititi adds his trademark humour (and all the saturation) to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I had a blast.
The second good superhero movie of 2017, pretty insane. Entertaining watch, really like the rock creature
i think they overdid the comedy, but thankfully it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the movie. fast paced with plenty of action, and Hulk was definitely the high point of the movie for me and stole the show. if i could think of one word to describe this movie, it would be ENJOYABLE. i do have one complaint, but it concerns Loki, not the movie itself. it is just me, or is Loki becoming more and more of a comedic character with each successive appearance? he was a diabolical villain in the first Avengers movie, but now he is just a pantomime villain or a court jester, who Doctor Strange handled with ease, hopefully he gets back to what made him a great villain soon
the very beginning actually caught me! the scene with THor hanging up on that chain wath hilarious!! All guys and friends of mine that work at https://capslist.de/ were watching this moovie in cool hats. We went to the moovie and had a "cool fancy hats" flashmob)))hahaha)) Like Chris new haircut btw...looks more...manly I gues)
this is more like a comedy, but not a bad one actually.
Watched the movie today, 25 Jan, and to be honest, it didnt bring any addiction to this
Just a regular movie, with a few stars probably to bring spectators and and a few jokes around, and the end of the evil was kind of, she bla bla bla like that? bla bla bla
I dont know... i think Hulk was the character most funny in all movie ahahahahah

There are flaws in this and mostly all movies of this type, but I was entertained. I think this movie is just that, fun and entertaining as it should be.
I have seen Thor 1 and really hated it. I didn't watch Thor 2 and I'm glad about it. I saw Thor 3 and I don't regret it at all. It's way better than expected. A good mix between comedy and action. The story was quite interesting and I don't think we have to talk about the effects.Of course it's predictable at times, but altogether a quite good film.
this movie is a sack of shit and waste of time
this movie was really, really good. solid story, amazing characters, wonderful soundtrack. it's definitely one of the best movies marvel has ever done, up there with captain america: the winter soldier.
I'll just say it. It seemed like most of the movie was focused on escaping Grandmaster rather than facing Ragnarok. I loved the movie, but find both Hulk and Banner's casting dreadful. Hulk's voice doesn't sound right to me, and Banner (I know he's the same actor as the previous movies) doesn't look the part. I'd rather have someone who looks like the comic character, but alas. 9/10 loved it. Puts DC movies to shame.
omg never laughed like this in a loooooong time. this is the best movie of 2017. loved it.
Gonna by this when it comes out on digital form.
Best movie of the year
"Hilarious"For me, this is the best Thor movie and perhaps one of my favourite Marvel movies. The casting for the new characters was as always fantastic, you can't not love Cate as Hela! A great laugh from the beginning to the end with plenty of action to keep the audiences interested. A highlight for me was Idris Elba's Heimdall getting more screen time. For such a fantastic actor and interesting character this was well deserved.
This was a great movie. Nice pacing, fantastic action and just enough laughs to keep it light-hearted. Korg is a great character, and honestly I'd love to see him make a return for a more prominent role!
funny and great, very recomended.
it has good jokes. it has good theme
It was not like it predecessors, and that is a good thing! This movie answered the question: what is flash Gordon was A GOOD movie? It was bold in color, humorous with its lines, and just the right amount of playing time. It also touches on the subjects of family and home for you emotional folks. Don't see it in 3D! There are no elements of it worth seeing for more money.
Really, Really Good. After two misfires, they finally got the tone right - lots of fun. Big action, big story, great cast (a superbly ripped Chris Hemsworth) good mix of heroes (I missed Lady Sif, though, but hopefully she escaped the slaughter and will show up in the next movie), convincing villain, twists and turns, stellar CG, entertaining, spot on humour. I give this a 9 (superb) out of 10, and can't wait to see it again.
Thor made one helluva comeback let me tell you that! This movie was absolutely brilliant. It was exciting, it was beautiful, it was fun and it was so entertaining.
The storyline was really good, there were a few parts that were a bit creepy/scary but they did a great job at keeping everything rather "light". The whole thing fell into place perfectly, it was solid and it just had a very nice flow. The acting and choice of actors, again very well done. (heads up, I'm probably not going to say anything negative in this review) I loved that they added so many new characters to this movie. But I also loved seeing all the familiar faces. Tessa Thompson was such a strong female, I adored her, she is so beautiful. Cate Blanchett did a great job (but when doesn't she?) as Hela, very scary. Benedict Cumberbatch his small appearance was one to remember, so funny. One of my favourite parts was the address he stayed at, I mean that was one great wordplay. Really, I could go and call out the whole cast because I think they all did such a great job. Jeff Goldblum, very funny. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Mark Ruffalo, they all were amazing. I can't get over it. But I'll stop talking about it, for now. (Matt Damon, I saw you brother, I saw you)
The soundtrack was so good as well, the song that came on when Thor started fighting. Such a good song. I half expected Wonder Woman to appear on screen everytime it started, but still, such a cool song. Probably making it that ma jam.
This movie was so beautifully made, and it was so funny. All the people who worked on it deserve every bit of praise they can get. This might be one of my new favourite Marvel movies. If you haven't watched it already, I recommend you to run to the nearest theatre because you won't regret a minute of it.
Great movie for having a good time! Funny how everything gets destroyed and you keep laughing. A dark theme, but the jokes make it an enjoyable family movie.Though the beginning is a little awkward, overall a good marvel movie. To be honest, one of the best I've seen so far (along with Iron Man and guardians of the galaxy)
Definitely the best Thor movie. One of the best Marvel movies to date. Tied with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1 has the best comedy by Marvel. Loved it.
Pretty fun. Great action scenes, an interesting story, and a lot of cool characters. The jokes sometimes get in the way of the story and deflate the mood, but they mostly work.
Also, I hate that they gave away almost the entire movie in the trailers, even the final scenes. It would've been nice to have some surprises.
Incredible! One of the best movies yet.
Met my expectations more than anything else. Entertaining and a lot of fun, but save for a few scenes I can see myself forgetting this in a few weeks. The comedic tone is there right from the beginning, and quite a few of the jokes did get a good laugh out of me. However, the upbeat feel at times take away from the stakes at risk and make the imminent threat not as threatening as it should be. The whole 80s/90s theme also doesn't feel very fitting because besides the use of a few songs, this felt like a modern Avengers hero movie, not something like the Guardians of the Galaxy go for. I'm going to blame that more on marketing than the movie.
Huge points go to the cinematography and excellent use of color, even compared to the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. If you've kept up with the Marvel movies so far, you're going to end up watching this anyways. It's a good fun watch, but nothing more.
Not only the best Thor movie but the best Marvel film since the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Hemsworth was at his best. Especially when he tries to calm down the Hulk by saying what Black Widow would. That was hilarious.I just wish they didn't acknowledge the Banner and Widow relationship ever happened though. Which is my only complaint. Well, that and Jeff Goldbluim is slightly miscast as the Collector's brother, the Grandmaster.Cate Blanchett totally makes up for her goofy villain performance in Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull though. She's one of the only Marvel villains that hasn't been a disappointment. Next to Vulture and Ego.Thor: Ragnarok is just a bad ass and fun movie, start to finish. Oh and I definitely didn't miss Jane Foster. No Natalie Portman and you have the best Thor movie. Gee, I wonder why lol.
I love what Taika Waititi was able to do with a big blockbuster. Its so much fun and hilarious. I love all our heroes and all the new characters. Korg (voiced by Taika Waitit) was my favorite new character. Thor vs Hulk was fun and the whole planet Hulk subplot was way more entertaining than the Asgard story line. Hela didn't break the streak of boring Marvel villains but I thought Cate Blanchett still did good work with what she had. I really liked that it tied into the MCU with a (short) cameo by Dr. Strange and what looks to be Thanos's ship. Also that quick shot of the infinity gauntlet. Still missing one infinity stone, looking at you Helmdall. How much Korg are we going the get in Infinity War? Not enough!
Thor is going to be an interesting character going into infinity war. One eye, no hammer, and possibly captured by Thanos?
I still can't believe Matt Damon was in this.
I want the immigrant song in all my superhero movies.
nunca me divertir tanto em um filme, do começo ao fim só risadas o filme é de mais, vale muito a pena... só deveria ter durado mais tempo a luta entre o Thor e o Hulk...m
