poised for a career comeback with this hybrid of Shakespearean style and summer spectacle -- offers a handsomely-mounted big-screen interpretation of the God of Thunder by way of Marvel Comics..
I like this movie because even if your not a comic book junkie ( like myself ) its easy to fixure out who "Thor" is, and the basic of what he does is summed up in this movie. The actor who plays Thor did a great job! I hear he got bashed bad by some hard core Thor supporters. ( really? I didn't even know they were out their ) But, imo, hes a very big guy! Confident/cocky and spoke very much like how Thor did/does in the comics. The only part I didn't care for much was his side kicks, they seemed pretty normal to me and not much like the comic book characters. But thats just me, to the casual fan, I think they won't notice. This is a good action packed movie, that has alot of story line. Something I think will surprise alot of people. Good lead actor, his love intrest did a great job playing a geeky scientist. For a second I even forgot she was Luke Skywalkers mommy hehe. This is a good solid 4 star movie, you cant go wrong with this 1. Kid friendly, and parent approved lol. Fan of Thor or not, you'll most likely enjoy this 1.
Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman
star in Kenneth Branagh's 2011 action film based on
the comics. An arrogant warrior is banished to Earth
and redeems himself trying to save the universe.
This is pretty good and Chris is great as Thor.
This dvd has nice picture and sound, but only
commentary, 4 deleted scenes and a teaser
promo for "The Avengers." I recommend
From the Marvel Universe and Greek mythology, Thor "The god of Thunder" blasts into action spanning Earth to the legendary Asgard. The story primarily follows the development of the would be king from a hot headed warrior who resurrects an age old war to a just ruler. When Thor is exiled from Asgard due to his arrogance his brother attempts to usurp the Throne. Will Loki succeed in betraying his family and claiming rule for himself? Will Thor learn what traits are required of a true hero, and king? The movie Thor also includes the background information and serves as a prequel of sorts for the Avengers movie.
This was a fun addition to my Marvel collection. Watching this movie was much like reading a Thor comic - action packed with quite a bit of Norse mythology thrown in!
Great movie for someone like me who loves superhero movies. (Thor is also one handsome man.) Would have given it a 5 if the girl had got her guy.
I am not generally a comic book-movie fan. A co-worker wanted me to see this and I was pleasantly suprised. It could have used a little more background info & character fleshing out but I would totally watch this again. Very nice for some escapism into make believe.
I bought it because I enjoy watching it.
The disk is like new.
The acting is good. I like the casting of the rolls. I didn't recognize the gal from 2 broke girls till I watched it again.
I love this movie. Cant wait for #2 to come out. Cant go wrong when Chris Hemsworth is in it anyway.
I love Super Hero Comic Book movies, so this was a thrill for me. A must see for those who want to eventually see The Avengers. Make sure you wait til the very very end of the film to see the Avengers hook. Loved the Wolverine cameo!
