Thor Ragnarok movie reviews: Hailed as Marvel’s most fun and HILARIOUS movie to date

After almost a decade on the go, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is releasing its 17th feature film and some how is keeping fresh and relevant for fans.

Thor Ragnarok’s synopsis reads: “Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger.

“Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilisation.”

The Marvel film currently has an impressive Rotten Tomatoes scores of 98%. Here’s what the critics have been saying.

Daily Express
Thor Ragnarok will easily go down as one of the favourites in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – alongside Guardians of the Galaxy and Iron Man 3 – for the simple reason that the movie is one giant, colourful ball of fun.

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

Total Film
You never have to wait more than five minutes for a joke or well-placed wisecrack. Anytime there’s a danger of someone giving a cliched, worthy speech about power and responsibility there’s a one liner delivered like a slap to the back of the head.

Daily Telegraph
It’s funny, charming, dazzling, gorgeously designed, and full of actors you already like.

Radio Times
Ragnarok rocks

Time Out
In a world of portentous blockbusters getting ever darker, it’s a joy to see one throwing on the disco lights.

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

Hollywood Reporter
As it arrives poised for a megalithic box-office haul, it might be helpful to keep in mind the advice offered by one character: “You cannot stop Ragnarok. Why fight it?”

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

The Guardian
It basically throws up its hands at its own ridiculousness and plays it all for laughs – and it gets them.

However not everyone was a fan, with Variety currently being the only outlet to have given a poor review.

While it’s not saying much, Thor: Ragnarok is easily the best of the three Thor movies – or maybe I just think so because its screenwriters and I finally seem to agree on one thing: The Thor movies are preposterous.

Thor Ragnarok is released in UK cinemas on October 24, 2017.
