Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok is an excitement bomb for your eyes straight out of the gate.  From the moment the movie starts you are launched in to a witty and wild adventure that doesn’t stop until the credits roll.

MPR Rating: A

Spoilers ahead.

Thor is locked up in an underground cave talking to a skeleton then is released to speak with Surtur.  Surtur can’t launch Ragnarok on the city of Asgard until Odin dies.  Thor defeats Surtur and returns to Asgard with Surtur’s helmet to be placed in the vault.  Upon returning Thor finds that Loki has been using an illusion to look like Odin as has run Asgard without anyone knowing it’s him.

Thor and Loki go looking for Heimdall as Loki banished him from Asgard to Earth.  This is when Dr. Strange finds them and leads them to the real Odin.  Odin explains that Hela, his first child and heir to the throne, was banished because of her evil and overpowered ways.  With this news, Thor is no longer the strongest Asgardian (or so he thinks).  After telling the story of Hela Odin passes away, and with his death Hela returns and assumes control over Asgard.  Not without first crushing Thor’s hammer and sending them on an unforseen detour of space, with Thor and Loki landing on Sakaar.

A planet of junk run by “The Grandmaster” who likes to hold brutal gladiator fights.  His main attraction is the big fight between his strongest gladiator and whoever Grandmaster thinks could beat him.  He lines Thor up for the next fight, but when arriving to the arena Thor finds himself fighting the Hulk.  After the Civil War the Hulk boarded a quinjet and sailed off in to space, apparently landing here and becoming the best gladiator and undefeated.  That is, until now when Thor unleashes lightning fury on him.  Meanwhile, Loki is here too making deals and you can’t tell if he’s helping Thor or trying to get him killed.

Now that Thor and Hulk are together, they find a way to get out of Sakaar and back to Asgard to stop Hela from destroying everything and starting Ragnarok.  Thor thinks that because he doesn’t have his hammer, that he’s not powerful enough to defeat Hela.  But with a flashback to Odin, Odin tells him that the hammer is just a way for Thor to channel his strength.  With this, Thor goes on to push Hela away long enough to distract her so Loki can grab the helmet of Sutur and combine it with the infinity flame that gives him everlasting life.  And now with Odin’s death, Surtur is able to destroy Asgard.

Thor, Loki, Hulk, and the Asgardians are able to escape Asgard while Hela and Surtur fight over Asgard.  Surtur defeats Hela and ends up destroying the entire world of Asgard along with himself.
