Thor Ragnarok Review, What Made This Average Movie a Blockbuster

While many of you will be surprised and might disagree about the movie being an average, others would agree who watched it with critics eyes. While calling it average, we don't mean the experience to watch the movie was average, but the storyline and plot. We're so much into Marvel Studios movies that we liked almost everything they made.

If you have already watched the movie (which we believe the majority of you must have!), you would agree that it lost the charm several times. Still, it was Chris Hamsworth every time who made us to forget that instantly! While he was believed to be a “miscast” by some at the early stage of Thor and The Avengers, it turned out he was one of the most liked casting in all the Avengers.

Thor Ragnarok Plot

Thor is held captive by the fire demon Surtur two years after the battle of Sokovia. Additionally, Surtur reveals that Thor's father Odin is no longer on their home planet Asgard. He adds that once Surtur joins his crown with the Eternal Flame that burns in Odin's vault, the realm will be destroyed at the foretold Ragnarök. Thor is set free, overcomes Surtur, and ascends to the throne, believing he has averted Ragnarök.

When Thor returns to Asgard, he discovers Heimdall has vanished, and his estranged brother Loki has assumed the identity of Odin. Thor compels Loki to help him find their father after exposing him. With the assistance of Stephen Strange in the Sanctum Sanctorum in New York City, they track down Odin in Norway. Odin reveals that he is dying, that Ragnarök is approaching despite Thor's best attempts to avert it, and that his death will liberate his eldest child, Hela, from a long-ago captivity. Hela was the commander of Asgard's forces, and she and Odin conquered the Nine Realms together. Still, Odin imprisoned her and erased her from history because she had grown too greedy and powerful. As Thor and Loki watch, Odin passes away, and Hela appears, shattering Thor's hammer Mjolnir. She chases after the two as they try to leave through the Bifröst Bridge, pushing them into space. She destroys Asgard's army and kills the Warriors Three when she arrives.

Wrap up

In no way do we demean the movie or the scriptwriters. It's just the collective opinion of several industry-wide recognised critics and reviewers. The movie, direction, graphics and pretty much everything was beyond satisfactory when seen from a fan's eyes, and if that's the only thing matters, then we're good.
