The god of thunder has returned to the big screen in his third installation which features signature Marvel characteristics—comedy, an evil but flawed villain and comradery among the main characters. On Nov. 3, people from all over the world eagerly bought tickets to see Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Cate Blanchett (Hela) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) star in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

Spoiler Alert: The Marvel film begins with Thor searching for Infinity Stones—which is a key part in the upcoming Avengers film “Infinity War”unsuccessfully. After finding his adopted brother Loki disguised as their father, Odin, in Asgard, the brothers go to Earth to search for their father. After the finding of Odin, with the help from Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and Odin’s death, Odin’s first born Hela appears, saying she will reclaim what is rightfully hers—the universe. After many events unfold, Mark Ruffalo’s character Bruce Banner/The Hulk and Thor end up in an epic showdown which results in a tie. Thor and his new group of “revengers” show up on Asgard to fight Hela, which results in Hela’s ultimate defeat but the end of Asgard as they know it.

I would recommend “Thor: Ragnarok” to the whole family. Although there is mature comedic aspects, I believe that it will go over most children’s heads because they will be too distracted with the awesome filmography and bright colors on the screen. The ending, although mostly predictable, did have a couple of surprises that made me gasp and cringe. The film is shorter than the average Marvel film, but “Thor: Ragnarok” packs in a lot of plot without seeming rushed or too crowded with new characters. The hype of the film made me scared that the actual film would not live up to the expectations, but it did not disappoint at all.
