Thor is a really good popcorn flick -- just a little too bloated in places to hit the mark as well as it could have.

The mildly amusing midsection plays like a Viking take on Crocodile Dundee.

Strikes a mighty blow to the summer blockbuster season and will charge up audiences just like the first 'Iron Man.'

Drab, bloated and stuck together with special effects that look like high-end Microsoft screensavers.

Thor is terrific fun! It's aware of its own silliness but made with complete integrity and heart. The film is also beautifully designed and very well performed. A great summer blockbuster!

Tempering its sweeping scope with wit, humor, and just a little dose of dramatics, Thor is a super-charged fantasy epic that can stand alone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Let's hope Branagh was well-compensated, at least. To quote his favorite author: No profit grows where is no pleasure taken.

Thor is on much safer ground here on Earth. The tone is immediately different: more relaxed; comic, not cosmic.

Hemsworth gives the Thunder God all the spark he needs.

Branagh and co have taken one of the least relatable superheroes and turned his story ... into a hugely enjoyable, funny and visually spectacular film

"Thor" reminded me a lot of the "Iron Man" films. They are not particularly great, but they are highly entertaining with their explosive action sequences and fascinating characters.

Adapted lovingly and good-naturedly from the comic, Thor gains some Shakespearean heft from its themes of sibling rivalry, epic emotions and touching Oedipal conflict.

It does nothing to stand out from the other comic book adaptations of the past few years, but it's an adequate and enjoyable slice of hokum.

... A solid introduction to the character, and the idea of encountering him again isn't a bad one.

... not to say that Thor is awful, simply uninspired, full of sound and fury and not much else.

...although it looks good, it feels fragmented, the action never coming fully to life and the central character rather colorless.

Arthurian grandeur, fanboy-pleasing whallop and special-effect razzle-dazzle flesh out the backstory of how the hunky hammerer got from Up There to Down Here.

What's left is the movie's middle 60% or so, which is a fun ride, though I could have done without the 3-D.

Branagh's chosen style (and that's a generous term to use here) pretty much consists of tilting the camera about forty degrees every fifth or sixth shot.
