QUICK TAKE:
Superhero Action: A superhero teams up with a small, disparate group of others to save his home world from his power-hungry, goddess of death sister.
PLOT:
While battling a gargantuan fire demon, the crown prince of Asgard, Thor (CHRIS HEMSWORTH), learns of Ragnarok, the prophesied destruction of Asgard. After defeating that demon, he returns to his home only to learn his treacherous brother, Loki (TOM HIDDLESTON), has not perished as he believed, and thus takes him to Earth to meet their father, Odin (ANTHONY HOPKINS). But the king is sick and right before dying, he informs his sons of his first-born, Hela (CATE BLANCHETT), the "goddess of death" sister they've never met. She once helped her then war-happy father conquer other worlds, but when she became too powerful and dangerous, he locked her away for good.

Upon his passing, she's released and on her way to take back Asgard for herself, she sends her brothers to the planet of Sakaar. There, Thor ends up captured by Scrapper 142 (TESSA THOMPSON), a bounty hunter and former Valkyrie who inserts a shock device into his neck to keep him under control and sells him to the Grandmaster (JEFF GOLDBLUM). As this world's leader, the Grandmaster, who's since befriended Loki, enjoys putting on a good show and stages gladiator battles and confines Thor among other prisoners such as Korg (TAIKA WAITITI), who informs the prince about the current undefeated champion.

But Thor is relieved when he sees it's his old friend and fellow Avenger, the Hulk (MARK RUFFALO) who hasn't returned to his human form of Bruce Banner (also RUFFALO) in years. The two battle but eventually join forces with Scrapper 142 in hopes of escaping and returning to Asgard where Hela has assigned a local man, Skurge (KARL URBAN), as her executioner, all while Thor's friend, Heimdall (IDRIS ELBA), has managed to rescue many Asgardians and hidden a powerful sword that Hela needs to rule their world.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the previous two "Thor" movies or comic book pics in general they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and brief suggestive material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
