Thor: Ragnarok Review

Being the final part of a trilogy is hard because you have to complete all the previous storylines, all while staying true to the chracters. It is especially harder if not many people like the first two installments of the trilogy. In case you hadn’t figured it out, I am talking about Thor: Ragnarok, the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or the MCU for short, and the final part of the Thor trilogy.

The 16th movie in the MCU, Thor: Ragnarok, is currently sitting at a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, right behind the highest rated movie in the MCU, Iron Man. The movie is directed by the brilliant Taika Waititi, who has also directed well-known films, such as Boy and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. He is known for having important or relevant messages in his movies, but he seems to have missed that aspect in Thor: Ragnarok.

Thor: Ragnarok is a total blast and has many great jokes that will make you laugh, but there are some issues. The first act(part) of the movie seems kind of sloppy and has a lot of pacing issues, and Thor is now the jokester of the movie, whereas before he was a more serious character, which deviates drastically from what you may expect from him. As I mentioned earlier, there was an issue with there not really being a specific message. With movies from earlier this year, like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with a message about family or Spiderman: Homecoming, with a message about responsibility, there were clear messages throughout the film that left you with something after the movie was over. But with Thor: Ragnarok, there is no message or real character arc for Thor. There was, however, a small character arc for Valkyrie, Hulk, and Loki.

Besides issues with character arcs and pacing, Thor: Ragnarok is a really fun movie, definitely one worth seeing, and I would rate it an 8/10.
