I couldn’t stop laughing and cheering on what I was seeing on-screen from the moment the opening narration starts in Thor: Ragnarok until the film ends, even in the bonus scenes that follow after the credits. Thor: Ragnarok might be one of my top three favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe films alongside Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.
Read my review here: Action-packed and full of gags, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ shines with renewed vigor (InterAksyon).
I was excited to see Tessa Thompson try out a superhero since I’ve loved her performances in Creed and Westworld. She doesn’t disappoint and she really holds her own in this star-studded cast. Of course, the true queen of this film is Cate Blanchett as Hela. She’s magnificent. Completely capturing the campy tone without sacrificing a dangerous, sexy, menacing death goddess persona. Cate Blanchett can do anything.
But the true hero here is Chris Hemsworth, who has never been more swoon-worthy than here. The haircut suits him well and Hemsworth has fantastic comedic timing and an ability to make fun of himself without breaking character.
Director Taika Waititi was the perfect choice for this movie, even if he was probably the last director I would have had in mind to do it. This film is so enjoyable and echoing my thoughts from my review: it’s sad that there are rumors that this is the last Thor movie in the MCU because I definitely would want to see more of this.
