Thor: RagnarokThor has been captured by mysterious enemy forces. He rambles towards a skeleton sharing his cage about having been seeking the Infinity Stones but having found nothing. He says that sometimes you have to get captured to get a straight answer out of someone with that someone being Surtur. Thor manages to get freed from the cage, and arrives at Surtur's world, in which the latter taunts him with the knowledge that Odin is no longer on Asgard and Thor's absence leaves it vulnerable. He announces that Ragnarok is coming to Asgard at his hand and there is nothing Thor can do to stop it, while foolishly confessing that his crown is the source of his powers.

Critic Reviews of "Thor: Ragnarok"
AV ClubOctober 30, 2017
It makes an ageless space god with the nobility of King Arthur and the bodacious abs of a supermodel look like an underdog. Fallibility, not lightning, is his secret weapon.
Village VoiceOctober 27, 2017
In its own weird little way, Thor: Ragnarok manages to poke fun at the constant churn of myth and entertainment of which the movie itself is a part. It's a candy-colored cage of delights, but it is a cage nevertheless - and it doesn't hide that fact.
Newark Star-LedgerOctober 27, 2017
Like the antic entertainer at a children's party, director Taiki Waititi keeps us distracted with sudden noises, bright objects and silly jokes. It's not a bad plan.
NewsdayOctober 26, 2017
Turns down the Shakespearean pretensions, cranks up the humor and delivers what is essentially an action-comedy with swords and capes.
TIME MagazineOctober 26, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok is packed tight with zooming space vehicles and noisy thunder battles, but the movie's extravagant excess is more narcotizing than energizing. Even poor Thor seems lost in all of it, and he's supposed to be its star.
Rolling StoneOctober 26, 2017
Granted, there are probably more monsters and CGI battles and explosions than the movie needs. But director Waititi and star Hemsworth keep this Thor party hopping like it's 1999 and Ragnarok will never come. Good times.
Consequence of SoundOctober 29, 2017
Even for a Marvel film, Thor: Ragnarok is a weightless lark, almost to a fault. Waititi has so much fun playing with his toys that, at times, he forgets to offer the proceedings enough import. These are marginal concerns, at the end of the day.
Sunday Times (UK)October 29, 2017
You may find yourself longing for the days when superheroes played it straight.
Observer (UK)October 29, 2017
The film finds absurd comedy by juxtaposing the extraordinary with deliciously prosaic details.
The Ooh TrayOctober 29, 2017
A little light to be anything other than pleasingly disposable.
Contactmusic.comOctober 27, 2017
The most riotously enjoyable Marvel movie yet.
Lyles' Movie FilesOctober 27, 2017
That Ragnarok can even be in the conversation for best Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is a major victory for Marvel Studios.
