(2017) (Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
