Thor: Ragnarok, Star Wars in Marvel

I saw Thor: Ragnarok on cinema.

Thor: Ragnarok is the third film of Thor series. At last in the previous one, "Thor: The Dark World," Loki, the younger brother of Thor, mimicked Odin, father of Thor. I guessed Loki killed or kidnaped Odin to impersonate him. My prospect was correct.

Thor saw a prophetic dream of Ragnarok in which the world is destroyed. And he noticed Loki's incognito. Odin was concealed in a facility on the earth by Loki.

Guided by Dr. Strange, Thor and Loki met Odin again. But soon, Odin died, and his first child, Hela the Goddess of Death, revived to eradicate all of the worlds.

Thor and Loki fought against Hela. But she was too strong to be defeated. Thor got lost the way to return to Asgard. He was sent to a strange planet, to be captured by an ex-valkyrie. And he is forced to make a battle in the Colosseum.

The storyline is not so interesting. The rise of Hela and the death of Odin are not so persuasive. The reason Hela acts so aggressive and has deadly power is not adequately explained.

On the other hand, the relationship between Thor and Loki is well described. Loki often acts haphazardly. He is a bit arrogant and hostile to Thor. He is always jealous to Thor. In reality, he feels sorrow and suffering from the inferiority complex. He needs someone respects him to compensate his agony.

The scenes are obviously influenced by Star Wars series. Not only the scenes of battleship chase, but also the battle royale itself reminded me the pod race in Star Wars: Phantom Menace.

In this film, many scenes are optimized to be enjoyed with 4D function. Especially the scene of interstellar travel was fantastic. I strongly recommend you to buy a ticket of MX4D.

Personal Rating: 3 (fair)
