As promised here is my review. Not too much spoiler I promise.

Saw the movie just yesterday with my GF and my Sis. We were in a couch cinema just to make us more comfy (Were supposed to take a flight that afternoon but for unknown reasons its been delayed so to kill time, watch movie.) So ok opening scene. Thor yupping blah blah. Then off to a fight scene then cut to opening credits.

I think the Marvel formula for real is beginning to bore me. I mean I can see the commercial value of this movie. It’s meant to make Thor more appealing, I get it. But I am beginning to see a certain pattern that deep inside makes it predictable for me.

Ragnarok is full of fun. From the jokes to the small voiced rock-man. (Small spoiler.)

I can happily say that both my GF and Sister swooned over when Chris Hemsworth showed some flesh (Girls, Duh!). Story is ho-hum but you won’t get too emotional over the rather lazy first act. It is in the second to the last act where the action picks up if there is enough action in the film (for my liking it looks a lot less. A lot less than the second movie.) Cate Blanchett was an effective villain. The new girl Valkyrie (which in the comics is Thor’s love interest) is great on-screen. Hulk is still Hulk. Edris Elba goes Jamaican. (Éy man!)

The villain is the shortest movie exposure time in all the MCU’s villains, IMO. Nuts I thought it was Ragnarok, but it was only shown at the bitter end, making you hang in a tiny thread. You see Thor in full god of Thunder glory for about 5-10 minutes. He maybe bad-ass but its half assed because of the limited time showing. There are too many side quests for my liking. Maybe the extensive trailer made it predictable for me? I don’t know. But if you’re after commercial value and continuity watch Thor. If you’re going for story though there’s a pint inside you that goes WTF.

Would I recommend it?

3.5/5.0

Chris Hemsworth returns as the god of thunder in another sequel about Thor. Thor has been subpar at best when compared to other Marvel beloved heroes like Iron Man and Captain America.

But early return from critics, like Rotten Tomatoes who pegged the movie at 99% fresh, is a welcome development. Maybe the more colorful and comedic trailers helped boost interest for the movie, as well as the much anticipated Avengers movie the Infinity wars whatever the case its definitely a must watch movie specially if you don’t want to be left behind by your friends when it comes to details.

I haven’t watched the movie myself but expect me to have my own review of this very soon. For those fortunate enough to already watched it, hit the comment below and tell us what you think. Just don’t spoil it for us.

Incoming popcorn! Cheers!

Thor Ragnarok. In movie Theaters right now.
