REVIEW: Thor: Ragnarok simply excelled at the accuracy of the characters. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going on full throttle for quite a while now, and already we have seen strong character development in Thor, Loki and Hulk. Thor: Ragnarok manages that dynamic trope and displays fantastic elements that keep the movie entertaining at all times. It also looks into the many struggles Thor faces as the titular character, including his never-ending struggle with his brother Loki and the conflicts with his father Odin. The movie presented a variety of emotions in a very fresh manner, which made it quite different from the previous Thor films. The acting of Tom Hiddleston as Loki was amazing as always, and Cate Blanchett deserves special credit for bringing a dominating character as Hela to life.
A Marvel movie is what we look for every year and this time Thor needed to improve from its previous somewhat disappointing prequels. One specific highlight of this movie would be that it seems to differ from the traditional Marvel rule; it gives the sense that just about anything can happen with serious lasting consequences. The movie is full of colours and everything seems just perfect, giving it immense re-watch value. It is filled to the brim with absolute freshness, appreciable moments of humour, welcomed surprises and overall, an enjoyable comedy. Thor: Ragnarok has the potential to be the new fan favourite of Marvel fans.
