Thor 3D: Ragnarok

Thor 3D: Ragnarok

The third Thor film, infused with the trademark humour of director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople). Follows Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as he attempts to stop the villainous Norse god of Death, Hela (Cate Blanchett), intent on conquering Asgard - and beyond.

Along the way, Thor will encounter familiar Marvel faces including Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his own wayward brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), before finding himself on an alien gladiator planet ruled by Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), where Thor must square off against his ol' mate - the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The comic/cosmic adventure also features Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins and Kiwis Karl Urban and Rachel House, among others - including Waititi himself, in a fashion.

This is a Marvel movie that knows when to embrace the ridiculous and when to puncture any pomposity, and it's a delight from start to big finish.

In a world of portentous blockbusters getting ever darker, it’s a joy to see one throwing on the disco lights.

The greatest trick this studio wants to pull, at this point, is to make more of the same feel either exhilaratingly fresh, or sufficiently retro-inflected to qualify as a nostalgia trip.

Almost an admission that you can’t play this material straight. This is probably the wisest strategy with Thor.

In New Zealand, with Taika already a local hero, it's pretty much impossible not to walk into Thor: Ragnarok without your hopes soaring. I'm so happy to be able to report it doesn't let them down.

The whole thing is frankly insane and risky as hell, but it's paid off. Ragnarok is everything Marvel needs to breathe life into the franchise...

...while it's a comedic tour-de-force for Hemsworth, it's certainly a Marvel film that doesn't potentially quite stand up to repeated viewings.

Wall-to-wall fun - big screen blockbuster superhero escapism, Marvel merriment delivered directly into the heart of the mainstream multiplex through the Taiki Waititi Kaleidoscope.

The punchlines provide a diversion from a script (by a team of Marvel house writers) that really doesn’t offer much of a story to sustain its two hours 10 minutes.

...almost certainly the best time you'll have at the movies this year.

Daft as a badger sandwich and twice as funny, this is vintage Waititi, and the boldest, most outrageously fun film Marvel has yet produced.
