“Asgard is not a place, but a people.” This was a common phrase stated throughout the marvelous movie of Thor: Ragnarok. From the brilliant storyline to the amazing effects, Ragnarok was without a doubt the best movie of the Thor trilogy. If you haven’t watched this movie yet, beware, there are some spoilers ahead.

From the start, Thor is fighting evil for the greater good of his people. However, on one of his adventures he hears of a prophecy that could lead to the end of Asgardian civilization. Now you may be thinking, who could ever fight Thor and win? Well, it’s actually his long-lost sister Hela… the Goddess of Death. While trapped in a different universe, Thor finds himself without his strapping hammer and with a hot-headed green monster… the Hulk. Viewers find themselves asking, can Thor save his people? Or will his beloved homeland be turned into a bloody war-zone with no survivors?

Spoiler alert, everything turns out fine in the end. Or at least that’s how the director, Taika Waititi, makes it out to seem. As stated previously, the one line that stuck with me the most was “Asgard is not a place, but a people.” This was said when Odin, Thor’s late father, was trying to encourage Thor to destroy the planet of Asgard in order to save his own kind. That put things in a new light for me. What truly makes a country, is not its geographical location on the map, but rather, it is the citizens that make the country, or in this case universe, flourish.

Overall, the movie has a very comic feel. Everyone was laughing every other minute in the theater. The storyline of the movie flowed very well. It wasn’t all over the place like some of the previous Marvel movies. If you’re looking for a funny and carefree movie, then I would highly suggest to go watch Thor:Ragnarok!
