Thor: Ragnarok: Movie Review
This movie was directed by Taika Waititi who is also known for movies like Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) and Boy (2010) and written by Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost for the screenplay. The main actors of this film include actors like Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), and Anthony Hopkins (Odin).
Thor is forced into restriction where he must find a way out to help his civilization against extinction by extremely powerful supernatural powers while surviving a war of the gladiators against the other superhero Hulk.
LOTS OF VIOLENCE
This movie does contain a great deal of violence. There is not a lot of blood shown, and some of the gory details have been avoided. However, the violence is there and almost constant. As it is an action movie, driven from the action-filled comics involving Hulk, too much extent the violence is anticipated. RAGNAROK is the third chapter of Marvel´s series about Thor, the mythical god of thunder.
IT CAN BE SCARY FOR THE LITTLE ONES
There are times when the scenes become too scary for little children, at least in the beginning parts of the movie. Therefore, most people should be cautious about taking children younger than 10 years of age to watch this movie. Or if they decide to take them along, they should be prepared to leave the theater with their child or children for a portion or portions of the movie. SCARING
INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE OR REFERENCES
Even though it is geared toward the young audience, there is content that may not be acceptable to the parents. In addition to violence, there is a scene with partial nudity that passes quickly, and there are light instances of sexual reference.
There are some choice words the acceptance of which in the presence of their children depends on individual families and to what they want to expose their children. The choice adult words are generally avoided. However, the slightly lighter but still crude choice of words, which may get children in trouble at school, is there. Once again, if language and violence is an issue, the children should be allowed to watch this movie depending upon the choice and family environment of the parents.
ADVICE FOR THE PARENTS
Even though THOR: RAGNAROK is a PG-13 rated movie, parents should take the Caution that comes with the movie rating seriously when considering whether they should allow or take their children to watch their movie. In short, the age consideration is important when deciding whether children should watch this movie.
WHAT YOU MAY GET AS AN ADULT
If you are an adult, who was and still is a comic and superhero action fan, you are likely to enjoy this movie at least due to the action, or the humoristic dialogues. Otherwise, it will at least provide grounds for some fun commentary.
In my opinion, the story of this film was longwinded and sort of every day. Something that you may mingle with many superhero type movies. But it can provide some distraction from the thoughts and worries of your daily life. Some characters, such as Dr. Strange, have been developed to perhaps built up the scenario for the next Avengers line up.
WHAT´S THE VERDICT?
It is an entertaining movie, with lots of action and some funny commentaries. However, there are some scenes when the movie becomes too scary for little children. Additionally, there are moments where inappropriate reference and language come into play. However, for action lovers, this movie is an enjoyable way to pass time.
