Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is imprisoned on the other side of the universe and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization, at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett).Written by
The movie is mainly based on the Thor comics storylines "Ragnarök" (Thor (Chris Hemsworth) discovers Asgard is doomed to Ragnarök and must fight to stop it from happening) and the Surtur saga (Surtur (Clancy Brown) appears, and Thor and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) team up to stop him). It also incorporates elements of the Marvel storylines "Contest of Champions" (The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) and Death host a tournament) and "Planet Hulk" (The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) becomes a gladiator on an alien world).

Thor opens the top hatch of the Quinjet and drops in. The scene then cuts to him entering from the side door.
However, in the latter shot where Thor is entering, there is a bright light visible above Thor's head. The editing of this scene makes it inevitable that Thor dropped into that small corner of the Quinjet and then walked into the main control room. See more »
[Thor is thrown into Muspelheim in chains]
I know what you're thinking. "Oh, no. Thor's in a cage. How did this happen?" Well, sometimes you have to get captured just to get a straight answer out of something. It's a long story. Basically, I'm a bit of a hero. See, I've spent some time on Earth... for the record, I saved the planet a couple of times. Then I went searching through the cosmos for a couple of magic colorful Infinity Stone things... but didn't find any. That's when I ...

I saw this film at the Beckenham Odeon in London. The beginning of this film was as impactful as the bullet-time opening of Swordfish. So that set the movie off at with very high expectation indeed. Hela's part in the story was as expected, and nothing changed from the trailers. She's very powerful, and also very single-minded. Hulk's treatment in the film was in two parts - when he was the Hulk, he was a star, but when he was not hulk, he was a bit part player. I'm not sure I liked how his role was handled in the film, but I suppose anymore exposure of the Hulk, would have taken the shine off Thor himself. So maybe its understandable. I personally felt that more could have been made of the Hulk's character. What did make the film stand out though was the comedy. It was very unexpected, and also brilliantly done! Along the way, Thor meets a minor gladiator, who turns out to be the funniest guy ever! You'll have to see for yourself, but his deadpan delivery turns the film almost into a comedy, every time he's on the screen! The battle scenes were good, but not to the level of LOTR, for scope and spectacle. I enjoyed it, but I feel that it fell just a little bit short of the standard that Wonder Woman delivered. But it did set up the forthcoming space-based Marvel films very well (Black Panther was not referenced).
