I'm not a huge Mark Ruffalo fan and while he has done a good job with his run of the Hulk character, when he is in the David Banner "mode" (for lack of a better term) is cerrainly the weak link of all the main character. Though it's in the Hulk form where he really shines. The one and only unique Jeff Goldblum is as quirky and charming as always - even whilst playing a villain. As usual Tom Hiddleston's Loki is frustrating. Though, this is not a knock on Hiddleston - on the contrary. I say frustrating only because of his likeability as an person makes you wishing he was always one of thd "good guys". I don't want to add spoilers so that's all that I'll say about Loki. Idris Elba as usual is magnificent as is Cate Blanchett, who is almost unrecognizable as Hela. She's the actor that Streep use to be. Tessa Thompson who I became of aware of in "Creed" where her quiet sensuality almost stole that movie was another bright spot in a movie that had many.
What really pushed this movie to the top 5 of my favorite super hero of all-time - ironically - was the COMEDY! Yes, I said comedy. I went to see this weeks after it had hit the theatres so there was my wife, myself, & two guys in the theatre...an that was if! Well the four of us were belly laughing throughout the entire movie. Even during most of the many action scenes. Laughter is what will always come to mind when I think of "Thor: Ragnarock", knee-slapping laughter.
We find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) suspended in a cage in some hellish cave speaking to someone catching us up on his present predicament. Turns out the ‘someone’ is the skeleton of some previous prisoner in the same cage, hardly reassuring. What follows however is an almost non-stop action/adventure tale with continuous laughs that I thoroughly enjoyed. Asgard is in trouble, Odin’s dead, Thor’s estranged sister Hela (Cate Blanchett) the goddess of death has come to claim the throne and she’s a force to be reckoned with. Thor escapes his cage only to return home to find half-brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) masquerading as Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and enjoying life but is soon on the run from his power hungry and formidable sister. He ends up captured again by an entertainment impresario of sorts; The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) who stages gladiatorial combat for the masses (like WWE on a more primitive and lethal scale). His champion fighter is none other than the MIA Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and the two have a rocky reunion. We also have on hand Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson, a long way from her ‘Veronica Mars’ days) as a reluctant ally. There’s a bunch of ‘other realm’ and Asgardian mumbo jumbo but it all works if you just relax and let the story carry you along.
Awesome battle sequences and a rocking soundtrack make this the best of the Thor trilogy. So, if you want a break from some of the doom and gloom that often drags down this genre then “Thor- Rangarok” is definitely for you.
