Thor: Ragnarok Movie Review

The latest Avenger-series movie, Thor: Ragnarok, is finally hitting theaters this weekend.  Keep reading for my spoiler free review, what parents should know before taking their kids, and if there are any stingers at the end!

In this movie, Thor is captured on another planet without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk! And he ends up partnering with two unusual allies to help him try to save the Asgardians.

Before you take kids:

There is a little sexual innuendo in the movie, more so than in some of the previous ones.  However, nothing ever happens between any of the characters.

It’s violent.  The violence and fighting is pretty similar to the violence levels in other Avenger movies.

There is a portal Thor must pass through and it’s called the Devil’s Anus.  It’s mentioned a few times during those scenes which was pretty funny.  My 8yo thought it was super funny that they said “anus” in the movie and did a little giggle.

Lastly, there is mention that one of the spaceships was only used for orgys.  It’s repeated a few times and there are references not to touch anything in the ship because of what it was used for.  At one point a button was pushed and disco lights and music started playing.

I really enjoyed Thor: Ragnarok.  There was some comedy, some fighting, and lots of Thor… favorite of the Avengers.  This is probably one of my favorite of the Thor stand alone movies.  It is definitely worth the hype.

Will I let my kids see it? You betchya!  They’ve seen all the other Avenger movies as well as the Guardian of the Galaxy movies.  You know your kids and what they can handle, so if you’re in doubt go see it first.  However, it is pretty similar in nature to the other Avenger and Guardian movies.

Lastly, as with all Avenger movies, stay until the very end.  As in the lights in the theater come on.  There is more than one stinger at the end of the movie.

Thor: Ragnarok opens nationwide Friday (11/3/17).
