It may not be strongest film to have made the transition from comic book to screen but it does whet the appetite for more from the hammer-wielding thoroughbred and his jealous sibling.

The problem with the current crop of superhero movies is that once you've exhausted the A-list, you begin reaching for the second string personalities who do not have the same sort of populist street cred.

Director Kenneth Branagh, for all the Shakespearean fruitiness he imbues into some of his A-list performers, never forgets that Thor is ultimately an FX-driven film designed to sell popcorn.

The series of Avenger films continues to decrease in quality with Thor inferior to both the original Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

This film was not painful to watch... but it was no pleasure.

Despite under-imagined action sequences, the movie's intentional humor and Tom Hiddleston's well-played Loki save it from mediocrity.

Nicely combines visual splendor and an earthly fish-out-of-water tale with director Kenneth Branagh bringing a Shakespearean flair to the proceedings.

It only took about 10 minutes for a wide smile to form across my face at the realization that 'oh, man they got it right!'

Will it catch lightning in a bottle and become the next great superhero franchise? By Odin's beard, I think so! (Parental Content Review also available)

Thor gets by on humor and on the performances of Hemsworth, Hiddleston, and Dennings ...

The Marvel movie machine puts another second-string superhero on the A-list.

A mish-mosh of iconic genres, futurism and earth-bound pseudo-reality bound together by the commercial desire to engage us through any means--a sort of more is more thesis. But that doesn't mean it doesn't.

One of the better examples of the goofy live-action comic book that's come around recently.

There is pleasure to be plundered from some of the battle scenes, especially when Thor is confronting ice monsters with blood-red eyes, and from the culture clash that resounds when he descends to present-day Earth...

El despliegue físico y visual llenan el ojo (sobre todo en 3D) pero es tal la presencia de escenarios virtuales que al rato uno tiene la sensación de estar viendo un videojuego sin mayor progresión dramática.

An okay movie but more "Superman" than "Iron Man."
