Thor: Ragnarok premiered in the United States on November 3, 2017 and is the seventeenth movie set in the Marvel universe. As a child, I admit I read a few comics. Thor was my favorite character because I have always had an interest in ancient mythology. This is the third installment of the Thor series and it is good and full of action. The other thing I like about this film is the mythological elements have a bigger part in the story.
There are two plot lines going on here, 1) Hela,(Cate Blanchett) as Odin’s first child, takes over Asgard and plans to conquer the other worlds of this universe and 2)Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is captured and made a prisoner on the planet Saakar. Thor becomes a fighter in the arena for The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) and is pitted against the Hulk. That’s all I’m going to say about the story line. The rest you’ll have to find out for yourself and believe me it is well worth it. Jeff Goldblum’s performance is outstanding and there are some funny lines throughout the film.
For those people who are not fans of the Marvel universe because you don’t consider comic books as serious literature, I suggest you watch it for the sheer entertainment of it and the action sequences. The special effects are well done, especially the wolf Fenrir and the giant Surkur. I plan to buy this as soon as it becomes available. I give this 5 stars out of 5.
