Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok ★★★★

Thor: Ragnarok is undoubtably one of the best MCU films. It is not only the best Thor film but also the best Hulk film and the best Doctor Strange film.
It succeeds thanks to an excellent ensemble cast and Taika Waititi's signature sense of cheeky, naughty humour.
Gushing with colour, excitement and style, this is a bombastic treat for the senses.
Oh my word Korg is just so funny and Karl Urban does a great job at playing Skurge the Executioner - a character with a wholesome arc who really lent some gravitas and heft to the scenes on Asgard even when our main heroes aren't there. And speaking of great characters, Jeff Goldblum was the perfect choice for the role of the Grand Master.
Thor brings together the team called 'The Revengers' consisting of Bruce Banner played by Mark Ruffallo giving his best performance to date, Valkyrie played Tessa Thompson who has some great chemistry with Thor and of course the reliably excellent Loki played by Tom Hiddleston.
Also this film's use of music is exquisite! The synthy 80s score gives it a unique feel and Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song... perfection.
The one thing that does hold this back for me is the villain, Hela. Cate Blanchett is clearly trying the best she can but the character is just so one dimensional.
But there's no doubt in my mind that Thor: Love and Thunder is going to be great...
