‘Thor’ out of five: Marvel’s latest has critics raving
    2017-October-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

“THOR” is back on the big screen, and the critics seem pretty happy about it.

According to the Daily Telegraph, “Thor: Ragnarok” is one of the Marvel Studios’ “best films to date... funny, charming, dazzling [and] gorgeously designed.”

The film, says Variety, is “easily the best of the three ‘Thor’ movies,” with “self-aware punchlines throughout.”

Empire, meanwhile, gives four stars to a superhero adventure it describes as “a full-blown comedy using blockbuster spectacle as a backdrop for gags.”

“Thor: Ragnarok,” which follows 2011’s “Thor” and 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World,” sees the titular god of thunder, played by Chris Hemsworth, face a fearsome new adversary.

This new character, named Hela, is “played with haughty relish” by Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, according to the Radio Times’ Jeremy Aspinall.

The action in Taika Waititi’s film also sees Hemsworth come to blows with fellow “Avenger the Hulk,” now a gladiator on a distant planet named Sakaar.

His appearance, writes The Guardian’s Steve Rose, constitutes “the most fleshed-out performance of Hulk we’ve yet had in this Marvel universe.”

The result, says Screen Daily’s Tim Grierson, is “a grinningly goofy comic-book movie that reverberates with boyish delight.”

The Independent, however, does take issue with the film’s “convoluted” plot and bemoans its lack of “dramatic urgency.”

“Thor: Ragnarok,” which also stars Tom Hiddleston and Jeff Goldblum, opens in the U.K. and Ireland on Oct. 24.
