This is the third in the THOR movies, and while it wasn't as good as the first it was miles better than the second. It had humor, fun, interesting scenes, heartfelt moments, and a bunch of fun fighting scenes, the music wasn't bad either.
I found that I still enjoy several of the characters, like Loki and Odin, and even Hulk. There were added characters who were fun as well, like Grandmaster (who wouldn't love Jeff Goldblum) and Skurge (who isn't who you expect and Karl Urban all muscular and bald - even if it was fake - was nice to look at). However, there was one character that didn't get the attention she deserved and that was Kate Blanchett as Hela, the Goddess of Death.
While this movie was fun there was also several issues with it. One of the issues was that there was a lot of fighting and unnecessary chatter that didn't need to be used, even though some of it was fun it wasn't needed. More time should have been given to the backstory and the building of Hela as a character. It seemed like a waste to use Kate Blanchett in the role and then have her behave as a minor character, when she was integral to the story. If she hadn't been part of the story then the movie wouldn't have had much of a point.
There was plenty of great banter between the characters, and the uses of some of the best actors around was fascinating. I will never look at Matt Damon or Sam Neill the same. I also loved the return if Idris Elba, as Heimdall. The Hulk had more to say in this movie, and it was great because it gave insight into not only him but Banner. There is an interesting split between the two and it is somewhat sad because the viewer can see the psychology of the character of the Hulk and feel for him a little. What would like be like if you were seen one way, a monster? For the Hulk it is not great, until he lands in the spot of a warrior.
I would have liked to see Thor grow a little more as a character as he does a lot of talking about his hammer and being the God of Thunder, but what does the God of Thunder mean? Although I did enjoy the camaraderie between Loki and Thor as their love/hate relationship continues, and the life of siblings.... which I understand as I have several.
Was this a great movie? No. Was it worth it to see? Yes. It needed a little more added to it to make it a fulfilling movie, but it was absolutely better than the second Thor movie (by a lot), and it had so many fun moments it was worth it just for those moments.
I will add one more thing, the use of IMMIGRANT SONG by Led Zepplin was freaking fantastic!
