The third installment of the Marvel’s solo-superhero series Thor, Thor-Ragnarok is currently playing in theaters and is going quite steady with the revenue. The movie has already crossed the half a million mark and is expected to do a lot more.
Not all of us like super-hero movies but if you watch Thor-Ragnarok then you will love it to bits. The movie is hilarious by all means. The combination of beings with unmatched super natural powers and the cheeky jokes running throughout the movie makes it more and more interesting to watch.
What is the movie about?
Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his home world and the end of Asgardian civilization at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela.
Hela: The character of Hela is played by Kate Blanchett. The good Elf from Lord of the Rings has gone bad and emerged as the Goddess of Death in the Marvel’s cinematic universe. A female villain with unmatched super powers. In one of the most epic scenes of the movie, Thor throws Mjolnir (Thor’s Hammer) at Hela point blank and Hela not only stops the hammer with one bare hand but crushes it in to countless pieces.
Loki: Loki, the adopted son of Odin father, a power hungry, attention seeking nuisance and a menace turns out be on good side in the movie. But Loki being Loki, we will get to see his deceiving side throughout. In the end it does turn out well since Asgard is at stake and Hela needs to be stopped from totally destroying Asgard and its people.
Hulk: As the trailers shows, Hulk and Thor will pit against each other in a gladiator match. Thor will be not be able to use his hammer as it has already been destroyed by Hela. Thor tries his best not to fight against Hulk but he has no choice and they end up in a destructive fight. For me, Thor wins the battle but it’s actually Hulk who wins it. Let’s not spoil it too much for the people who haven’t watched the movie yet.
Valkyrie: Valkyrie is an Asgardian warrior from the old age. She is the last survivor of her race. They once ran into a battle with Hela and ended everyone being slaughtered. Valkyrie will team up with Thor to fight against Hela in the battle of saving Asgard from the Ragnarok.
Coming from a Marvel’s fan, Thor-Ragnarok does justice to the character of Thor. It is a very well-known fact that the first two Thor movies didn’t catch attention of many. Thor being played by Chris Hemsworth looks like an ancient Greek God himself and he is indeed the best fit for the character. We all loved him in the first two Avengers movies as well. It is a big relief to finally watch a Thor movie which has lived up to Marvel’s standards and which will hopefully be able to do well at the box office.
Watch the trailer of the movie and see for yourself. It is a must watch movie.
