The Thor movies have never one of Marvel’s highlights. Granted, the first Kenneth Branagh-directed film in 2011 was alright, but the second was pretty dreadful and diminished any interest in a follow-up. However, chose New Zealander Taika Waititi, director of cult hits
and to take the reigns for this instalment. As a result, it’s vastly different from either previous film, but in a really good way.
Returning to Asgard to find his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) masquerading as their father on the throne, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) takes him to Earth where a dying Odin (Anthony Hopkins) allows for the escape of his secret first-born Hela (Cate Blanchett) from her imprisonment. been
