‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is a 2017 Marvel movie directed by Taika Waititi. The film stars Chris Hemsworth as the title character, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins. It is a continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking place during ‘Captain America: Civil War.’

It follows Asgardian God of Thunder Thor, trying to bring an end to Ragnarok, the prophesied end of Asgard. However, soon Thor discovers that a much greater evil lurks Asgard. This evil is not looking to end Asgard, but to rule it. Thor soon becomes stranded on an unknown planet, ruled by Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster, where soon discovers old friends.

This take on Thor is completely different than the two previous film adaptations. It stretches out the comedic versatility of Hemsworth and of Thor in general. For the first time in the MCU’s history, I appreciated Thor as a character. He had always been bland and one-dimensional, but with Waititi’s directing and a fantastic screenplay, his story finally had the opportunity to shine through.

As with other Marvel films, it brought along many Easter Eggs, which I spent the movie trying to decipher. The film is also a long one, but it didn’t drag for a minute. It was truly a thrilling take on a tired character that made me appreciate the MCU again.

I enjoyed this film thoroughly, even more than the first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, which up to this point, had been my favorite MCU film. I would highly recommend this movie, as it deserves a high box office count. All in all, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is a step in the right direction for Marvel.
