Is Thor ok for kids to see? Well, THOR: RAGNAROK is hitting theaters Friday, November 3rd and we loved the movie! Read on to see what my Thor Ragnarok age rating would be…
The Honey + Lime team was invited to an advanced screening and well, the movie was literally quite awesome! If you’ve seen the other Thor and Avengers movies, you’ll appreciate this one as a strong addition to the series of films. It is packed with action, very funny, and introduces a few new characters into the story line. Here’s the synopsis…
“In Marvel Studios’ THOR: RAGNAROK, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe 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—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!”
Of course, with any Marvel movie, there will be a little bit of violence, and a little blood. They’re superheroes for crying out loud! But just how much does THOR: RAGNAROK have? I get it, you want to hear from a parent. Your child has begged and begged you to go see the new Thor movie and you’re just not sure! You want to hear from someone who has seen the movie and who has kids, and who can hopefully, somewhat help you judge before you say yes. Can kids watch Thor? Well, I will give you all I can without spoiling the movie, read on and decide for yourself.
Thor Ragnarok age rating: Is Thor ok for kids to go see in theaters? Here’s what this mom thinks…
The special effects are definitely present in this film, and I thought that they were out of this world! OMG Thor may be hammerless, but wait until you see Thor find his lightning powers! Similar to my Marvel Doctor Strange movie age rating, the way kids react to loud noises, fast 3D action, and sudden flashes can vary. You know your child best, so it is safe to say that if they have seen other recent Marvel movies and did fine, they will do fine here, too. Good for ages 8+.
Violence and blood
This seems to be the most violent Marvel film that I can think of in the past few years, and I have seen them all. The blood is not crazy oozing out of everyone, but there are some pretty graphic scenes where you can see deaths happen and blood as well. There are parts of the movie where Thor has a pretty good wound on his face, blood included.
Also, the fight scenes in this movie are super awesome, but some of them do show death happening. Swords piercing through bodies, tombs full of dead bodies and skeletons, and other similar activities may not be suitable for your child. Good for ages 10+
Ragnarok or Hela? Or both? I won’t spoil it and tell. But there are some evil happenings here and Thor and his posse need to come up with something fast to stop it. I would say that the main villain is shown throughout the last half of the film, and while most parts aren’t “scary,” the activities that happen are! Good for age 8+
Marvel’s THOR: RAGNAROK is in theaters November 3, 2017!
If you were wondering if Thor is ok for kids to see, of if you should take you kids to the movies this weekend, I would say yes! Kids 8+ should be just fine to see this movie, and possibly even younger if they have done fine with Marvel films in the past. My 6 year old (the queen of bad dreams) actually went to the screening with me and she said she liked the movie! And nope, no bad dreams! If your kids fit the Thor Ragnarok age rating, go see it in theaters TODAY! It is action packed, humourous, has a fun story line, and the special effects are out of this world!
*BY THE WAY, THIS IS VALKYRIE. SHE IS THE BOMB*
