During the final battle scene when Bruce proclaims he's got this and jumps to try and change midair to battle Fenrir only to crash land references The Incredible Hulk (2008), when Bruce jumps out of a helicopter to fight The Abomination. The fight scene also pays homage to The Hulk (2003), where he fights giant mutated dogs that are able to pierce through his skin with their teeth. See more »
Hela repeatedly states that she needs to track down Heimdall so she can use his sword to open the Bifrost bridge to expand her conquest. However, we have seen (in the first film) that Odin's golden staff can work the Bifrost just as well, and Thor is shown wielding it in the throne room, presumably meaning it was there the whole time. Hela may however be unaware of its use. See more »
[Thor is thrown into Muspelheim in chains]
I know what you're thinking. "Oh, no. Thor's in a cage. How did this happen?" Well, sometimes you have to get captured just to get a straight answer out of something. It's a long story. Basically, I'm a bit of a hero. See, I've spent some time on Earth... for the record, I saved the planet a couple of times. Then I went searching through the cosmos for a couple of magic colorful Infinity Stone things... but didn't find any. That's when I ...

After seeing the trailers for this film I was so hyped that this film may have been my most anticipated film of the year, and yes it falls short of those expectations but it is still a great fun marvel film. The film sees the goddess of death hela released on Asgard leaving Thor stranded and having to get a team together to stop her. Chris Hemsworth has always been great as Thor, but this is easily his best performance in the role. The film totally encapsulates his humour and charisma in a massive way that it makes him very likable and easy to root for. Tom hiddleston is back as Loki and he is great too, there chemistry is very good here and I've always liked how there brotherly relationship has developed. Mark ruffalo plays the hulk/banner in this film and this is easily the best hulk we have ever seen. Adding humanity to the hulk makes him easily the best part of this film, mixed with amazing effects that make him look incredible. Also banner is still as fun as he had always been, even though he plays second fiddle to the hulk in this film. Tessa Thompson plays Valkyrie and she was so much fun to watch, she is a rebellious drunk who is full of charisma and likability. Cate blanchett plays hela in the film and even though she is clearly having fun with the role and is pretty menacing, she didn't really stand out that much to me. Special mentions for Jeff goldblum as the grandmaster and taika waititi as korg who were absolutely hysterical and had me laughing throughout the film. The story is definitely a mixed bag in this one, I really enjoyed how the story develops in sakaar the gladiator pit as it shows Thor in a different light and he recruits his team. But the overall plot is pretty weak, which isn't helped by its focus on fun action and forgetting about a serious plot really. Which gets me to the script, this is possibly marvels funniest movie as it had me laughing pretty much the whole way through. But, this definitely comes at the cost of any real drama that those other films had, there wasn't that moment that made me emotionally care about the situation. The style of the film is a big plus, the more vibrant colours and massive scale actions scenes work for the most part and it really embraces its more sci-fi roots. Overall I had a lot of fun with Thor Ragnarok, and I do believe it is the best Thor film which is definitely worth a watch.
