Well that was different. No really this movie is almost not even a sequel to any Thor movie so far or any movie Thor has even been in. This movie felt exactly like Taika Waititi made a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie which is pretty much what happened so maybe I shouldn’t be surprised and yet… You see Marvel has had somewhat of a history of keeping things somewhat formulaic and somewhat what some people would say “cookie cutter”. This was anything but that! This was a comedy disguised as an action movie and it knocked it right out of the park.
The movie itself was wildly colorful, enigmatic, and energetic. The way it flowed was so different than anything else, I’m not sure there’s a good comparison in the Marvel world. Ragnarok is more Deadpool than it is Thor: The Dark World. The creativity to make some wildly cinematic shots mixed in with irreverent comedy is Taika taking his talents to the next level. Fans of Hunt of the Wilderpeople will like Ragnarok (the movie, not the end of times) and yet people who like Hunger Games (the movie, not the weird game your uncle plays when you have to stay with him) will love it too. Anyway, enough about Uncle Jeff, here’s the numbers.
Overall Score: 7.8/10
Thor: The Dark World
