Thor Ragnarok (2017) | Review

The third Marvel film of 2017, ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ marks a departure from the first two installments, promising a lighter tone under New Zealand director Taika Waititi. With a screenplay by Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, and Christopher Yost, the movie smoothly weaves together connected segments, presenting an easy-to-comprehend central plot with a touch of flair. The dialogue, often improvised on set, fosters a dynamic chemistry among the ensemble, injecting wit, puns, and subtle humor throughout.

The film boasts noteworthy cameos, Easter eggs, and references, adding an extra layer of excitement for keen-eyed viewers. Cate Blanchett as Hela steals the spotlight as the chief antagonist, while the film introduces elements deviating from the core narrative, keeping audiences thoroughly entertained.

Eccentric Ensembles and Dynamic Dialogues

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ aligns more with the humor-infused style of James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ than its predecessors. Despite occasional comedic misfires, the film swiftly moves on to the next running gag. Director Taika Waititi injects eccentricity into every character, reminiscent of his work in ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople.’ The set-pieces, complemented by Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song,’ showcase impressive visuals, with the ‘Valkyrie flashback’ and climactic showdown as standout moments.

The inclusion of franchise regulars, well-executed cameos, and the zany brilliance of Loki add depth to the film. ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ successfully rejuvenates the Thor franchise, making the titular character feel integral to The Avengers once again. Stay tuned for the mid-credits scene, as it adds a teasing touch to the impending ‘Infinity War.’

Verdict: The seventeenth film in the MCU, ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ proves the franchise’s enduring ability to captivate audiences. It revitalizes Thor’s character, setting the stage for ‘Infinity War’ in an amusing and exciting manner.
