Hela the Goddess of Death is released from exile and begins a reign of terror on Asgard while Thor remains stranded and helpless on an alien planet, enslaved as part of their gladiatorial games.
The latest instalment in the Thor franchise is a primary colour-saturated, hi-camp space opera that literally looks like a comic strip brought to life. It makes no attempt at po-faced philosophy or clumsy moralising; it's just charming good guys versus irredeemably evil bad guys in an joyously exuberant tongue-in-cheek fantasy/sci-fi mash up that never fails to bring a smile to the face.

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 …
