I'm a big fan of Thor but I just couldn't bring myself to like what they did to him in this film. I get that he's going through tough times but turning him from being a thundering, huge god to a man-child who shoots lightning is such an insult to Thor.

Story could've been great but it seemed to me that the writers got lazy with the script and just opted to feed Thor some cheesy humor that made him seem like this kid who was trying too hard to be funny instead of the GOD of Thunder the first two films built him up to be.

Thor's character is great with the other Avengers, but he just doesn't do that well as a stand-alone character with his own storyline. It's sad because he had so much potential too.

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. Although some of the jokes are a little hit and miss, it's laugh out loud funny when it hits the mark, and it does so far more often than not. In its formula of endlessly bickering but hugely likeable heroes …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
