A Laugh Riot of Epic Proportions

The new Thor is a whole lot of fun - in fact, I would wager to say that director Taika Waititi has truly created the first Marvel comedy - as Ragnarok has just as many funny moments as action. But that comedy comes at one big expense - depth, because as much as I did enjoy watching Ragnarok unfold, I couldn't help but feel it was wasting its new talent, especially Cate Blanchett and Karl Urban. Still, if you want a good time, you won't find much better than the new Thor - and it is head and shoulder above either of the previous Thor outings.

After an action-packed opening where Thor battles a massive fire incarnate Surtur (voiced by Clancy Brown) and takes hit crown (one step in preventing his dreams of Ragnarok from coming to fruition), Thor heads back to Asgard to report his success....

The God of Thunder returns in epic fashion!

A dazzling and splashy 80s-styled comic book adventure that blows both the previous Thor movies clean out of the water.

Director Taika Waititi is better known for his offbeat comedies and like James Gunn with Guardians of the Galaxy, it's evident in Thor: Ragnarok as well. With colorful special effects, cheeky humor, and quirky side-characters, the movie zips along from one action scene to the next. All the while, it opens the Marvel Cinematic Universe further for future adventures.

Chris Hemsworth is finally free to be more humorous and laidback as the noble Avenger Thor while Tom Hiddleston returns to chew the scenery as his ne'er-do-well brother Loki. Cate Blanchett is a blast as the crazed and psychotic Hela, or as she likes to remind others, the Goddess of Death. Tessa Thompso...

Marvel's first, true action/comedy (Guardians of the Galaxy came close, but this is even more comedic than that one) - and, for the most part, it works. But comedy comes at the expense of any true dramatic tension, with Cate Blanchett's villain getting the short end of the stick - still, I overall liked it and kudos to Taika Waititi, who gets the best lines (as he should, he was also the director) as the rock gladiator Korg and for Benedict Cumberbatch's return as Doctor Strange in a hilarious cameo oh, and for Jeff Goldblum being Jeff Goldblum too.

I thought it was fine, a little too much on the comedic side, it was as if they couldn't spend two minutes without cracking a joke, even in the more dramatic moments. Still, plenty of funny bits and the action and special effects were pretty good. Hemsworth is probably at his best as Thor in this one, but I felt they wasted Hulk on the film, could have done much more with his character. Also, Cate Blanchett was a cool villain, but she stays in the areas of formulaic. Anyway, probably Marvel's most bombastic film to date, still a pretty fun one.

I always found that the Thor movies tried way too hard to be more serious than they should - at least this time it looks like they're going to have fun with it.

Looks like this could be the most fun Marvel have had with a film since Guardians of the Galaxy.
