“Thor: Ragnarok” takes place a couple years after the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has taken place. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) have been dropped on separate planets by their long-lost, evil, elder sister Hela (Cate Blanchett). Thor has had his hammer destroyed and in order to get back to Asgard he must win a gladiator style battle against his former friend and ally, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The film is full of action that doesn’t really evoke any reaction from the audience, but has a whole lot of important details for the Marvel Universe. 

 I was excited to see this film, Thor is always a good time and the trailers had the fans believing that the movie would be hilarious, however, they showed most of the funny scenes of the film and the whole thing felt awkward. During the entire movie it felt like the writers were trying to make every single line funny, and it fell flat.

 There were some saving graces though. In this film,we finally get to see some personality out of Thor. Instead of being a total straightedge, serious, polite, even uptight, god of Asgard, he cracked jokes and actually seemed like a person. Fans are also introduced to several new characters, including rock creature Korg (Taika Waititi) who provided innocence and was actually one of the funnier characters. It was an overall mediocre film.
