Director Taika Waititi does a remarkable job of making this third installment of the Thor franchise the best one yet. What makes it work is the fact that not only is this a great superhero movie filled with battles and story, but it’s also hilarious! In fact, for a superhero movie, it has to be up there with Deadpool for me with regards to hilarity. It’s also very natural and not forced and the cast plays very well off each other!
The story revolves around the return of Hela (Cate Blanchett), who is the evil sister of Thor (Chris Helmsworth) and her desire to pretty much rule the universe and destroy Asgard in the process. Thor, with help from a few of his friends, including the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), find themselves on another planet and must find their way back to Asgard to square off with Hela.
As is typical Diney Marvel form, the visuals are stunning and the characters please just about everyone! Also of note is the fact that the music in this movie is really great and actually a great part of the film!
It’s great for all ages and a solid 8 out of 10!
