Thor: Ragnarok (12A)

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

The critical consensus

Daft as a badger sandwich and twice as funny, this is vintage Waititi, and the boldest, most outrageously fun film Marvel has yet produced.

****(*)James Dyer, Empire Online, 23/10/2017

Waititi's comedy chops give new life to Thor's storyline, and raises the bar for the Marvel universe.

****(*)Rachel Weber & Kevin Harley, Total Film, 20/10/2017

Thor: Ragnarok is fun in its own kinetic, comic book fashion but it doesn’t have any dramatic urgency whatsoever.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 19/10/2017

The same but different. What a difference a genuine comedy director makes.

****(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 20/10/2017

Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Taika Waititi infuses the third Thor movie with a generous dose of self-deprecating Kiwi humour, even if it all remains somewhat inconsequential.

***(*)(*)Steve Rose, The Guardian, 19/10/2017

Askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic, if the Thor films have been a bit 'meh' thus far, by allowing Waititi room to do his genuinely eccentric thing, the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might just be its best.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 19/10/2017

In some ways it’s a shame the film isn’t quite as entertaining as this lengthy second act, but it’s also reassuring that good directors can still find ways to put their own stamp on these gargantuan movies.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 26/10/2017

New Zealand director Taika Waititi injects a welcome sense of fun to this latest effects-laden instalment of superhero antics.
