So I finally rushed to finished the Thor trilogy for these reviews, after hearing how epic and amazing this third movie is. Phase 3 got really psychedelic, especially with Doctor Strange ( 2016) , Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) , and the end of Ant-Man
After Age of Ultron, Thor is on a quest to stop the fall of Asgard due to the prophecy of Ragnarok. After some dead ends, he returns to find Loki has been deceiving pretending to be Odin, after banishing him to die in a old folks home on Earth. So Thor and Loki pay a visit to Dr Strange to help find him, only to spend his last few minutes with his sons. Hela, Odin’s true first child and and damn near invincible goddess of death, comes forth to take the throne, destroying Thor’s hammer and bringing Asgard to its knees. Thor finds himself stranded, wounded in an failed escape on a world ruled by the tyrannical Game Master, aided by a past Valkyrie, forced to fight his way out against his old, angry friend Hulk. Can Thor overcome these impossible odds, find his true power and save his people?
I’m going to be honest, I loved this movie but somehow it annoyed the hell out of me. Visually it’s one of the most beautiful movies in the MCU. It has the most action in the whole Thor trilogy; I laughed my ass off a few times and the use of Led Zeppelin is beyond epic. Cate Blancett was awesome as Hela and Jeff Goldblum was great as Game Master. So what’s the catch? For me I feel like there were a lot of times the comedy diluted what could have been some good dramatic moments; series long characters die and it’s just meh. In the end its one hell of a fun movie at the end of the day and well worth the watch. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
