A play within a play
As we’ve mentioned, Thor: Ragnarok has more than a few elements of laugh-out-loud comedy within its plot. One of the funniest moments is when we are treated to a play depicting Loki as the savior of Asgard, during his time in charge. The cameos in this scene are off the charts.
Matt Damon plays Loki, Luke Hemsworth is seen as Thor, and Sam Neill of Jurassic Park fame is Odin. I’m being serious: it’s brilliant. Playing the whole thing as some sort of melodramatic daytime soap opera, it’s hilarious watching these A-list actors be deliberately bad at acting.
