Thor: Ragnarok is a 2017 superhero movie produced by Marvel Studios, directed by Taika Waititi, and is the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this instalment starring the infamous god of thunder, Thor finds himself imprisoned on the alien planet Sakaar and forced into a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former avenger and ally. He must find a way to escape in time to save Asgard from Hela, the goddess of death, and the impending Ragnarok.
Poor Thor has had a hard time with his movies. So far, none of them have been seen as anything special and are generally viewed as some of the weaker Marvel films. Ragnarok has been built up for a while now, and it is safe to say that the waiting has been well worth it. Ragnarok is easily the best out of the Thor movies and is one of the greatest Marvel films overall. It has a completely different tone than the previous Thor movies, feeling more similar, in fact, to the Guardians of the Galaxy films.
There’s action suspense, and a surprising amount of comedy. The visuals were excellent and the colors were beautiful, especially on Sakaar. It was also refreshing to see Thor among characters who matched him much more closely in skill than the humans he previously worked with in his past films. The music was also very upbeat and the perfect match for the rollercoaster of the film.
The film currently has a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. This makes it the highest rated Thor movie and the second highest rated marvel movie of all time, along with “The Avengers” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. Overall, this movie brings even more promise to the already great and successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.
