Thor Ragnarok Review

Synopsis for our Thor Ragnarok Review 2017

Directed by: Taika Waititi

Written by: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle , Christopher Yost

After his adventures on earth, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has broken out of the prison of Surtur (voiced by Clancy Brown) (A giant being who wants to bring Ragnarok to Asgard and destroy his home). He returns to Asgard and upon his arrival he finds that his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has replaced Odin (Anthony Hopkins) as ruler of Asgard sending their father to a retirement home on earth. With the help of Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Loki and Thor locate their father back in his ancestral lands in Norway only to find he doesn’t want to return to the throne and his time has passed. But he reveals to them that the next in line to the throne is their elder sister the goddess of death Hela (Cate Blanchett). As Odin whisps on the ancestral winds Hela’s banishment is broken and, after destroying meow meow, she dispatches her brothers to the planet Skaar and returns to Asgard to take her place on the throne. On Skaar, a war planet ruled by The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), Thor is forced to fight for his life in the arena. There he faces his toughest opponent a fully powered Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Hulk is happy on Skaar as the people of the land love their champion. Thor must convince Hulk, Loki and his capturer Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to join with him and return to Asgard to take back their homeland from Hela. To achieve this they start an uprising against Grandmaster and battle their way back to Asgard and help Heimdall (Idris Elba) to free the inhabitants of their home. By convincing turncoat Asgardian Skurdge (Karl Urban) to join them and using Surtur to complete the prophecy of Ragnarok and destroy their homeland they achieve their goal. Leaving a destroyed Asgard on a ship carrying the remaining Asgardian, Thor takes his seat as the All Father of Asgard as they search for a new planet to call home.
