Thor: Ragnarok. Levity goes a long way in saving something vacuous
Thor: Ragnarok bursts onto the screen as a larger than life, CG laden, comedic gladiator film. The plot is about Thor, the God of thunder losing his hammer and having to overcome his self-doubt and to use only his electrical lightening powers to save the day.
The posse of heroes are rushing back to Asgard, Thor’s home town where the final show down occurs between Thor, his evil sister Hela and a great big fiery beast. It’s a place that exists solely for the purpose of ending up in a massive fireball.
It's a simple goal driven by an equally simple character. Thor: Ragnarok has to be a funny film and full of puns because relying on CG alone and attempting anything other than comedy, would expose the film’s great big underlying hole. Thor: Ragnorak is vacuous and levity goes a long way in keeping a story from falling apart.
