[MOVIE REVIEW] Thor Ragnarok: A Second Chance For Thor, Hulk and Loki To Show Off


 Towards the end of 2017, the Marvel Cinematic Universe presents one more film to close the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 this year, namely Thor: Ragnarok. The film, which premiered in Indonesia since October 25, tells the story of Thor's struggle against time to protect Asgard from Ragnarok or Asgard's apocalypse as well as the end of Asgardian civilization. Thor also has to face his new enemy, Hela "The Goddess of Death" without her flagship weapon, Mjolnir.

The director of this film, Taika Waititi succeeded in bringing the 3rd thor sequel very satisfactorily, Thor: Ragnarok now appears more entertaining because of the comedy spices and balanced action-packed scenes, very different from the previous two Thor films where the audience is treated to a rich plot. the action and storyline seem slow. We can also feel the difference in this film from the first 10 minutes which is able to describe Thor, who is more characterized. Moreover, Hulk, who in several previous appearances appeared fierce but less 'monumental', has now been successfully polished by appearing more 'cute' and makes us want to watch their action for a longer time.

Taika Waititi's genius is also seen from the way he combines two Marvel comic stories, 'Ragnarok' and 'Planet Hulk' seamlessly without losing the essence of the original story. From a technical point of view, the play of color tones and scoring music in this film feels very unique. Especially the selection of a song from Led Zeppelin entitled 'Immigrant Song' made some scenes more lively and intense. But unfortunately for some scenes, the CGI effects displayed are not very smooth, not much, but enough to make the feel of the scene lessen. On the other hand, the actor who fills the character of 'Korg', namely Taika himself, doesn't feel right and is a bit forced, even though Korg's presence is a plus which is a sign that Taika still maintains important elements from the Planet Hulk story.

In contrast to Korg, other supporting actors such as Cate Blanchett are amazingly able to make Hela's character appear as a charismatic villain. Maybe even Hela is one of the best villains that Marvel has to date. Likewise with Tessa Thompson as a Valkyrie who is able to make the storyline more interesting with her good character traits.

The number 4 out of 5 seems to be worth giving for this film. It must be admitted, Taika Waititi with Thor: Ragnarok is able to be an entertaining film, especially because the plot is not too fast and slow, but also light and enchanting, making this film very easy to enjoy. Credit points are also for the cast who are able to present their characters well and make Thor: Ragnarok a 'reborn' event for several characters such as Thor, Hulk, Loki and even Heimdall. Well, how about geeks? Interested in watching this film?
