Movie Info

As the son of Odin (Anthony Hopkins), king of the Norse gods, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will soon inherit the throne of Asgard from his aging father. However, on the day that he is to be crowned, Thor reacts with brutality when the gods' enemies, the Frost Giants, enter the palace in violation of their treaty. As punishment, Odin banishes Thor to Earth. While Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Thor's brother, plots mischief in Asgard, Thor, now stripped of his powers, faces his greatest threat.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • The story might perhaps be adequate for an animated film for children, with Thor, Odin and the others played by piglets. In the arena of movies about comic book superheroes, it is a desolate vastation.

  • A giant notch up is Hiddleston, who'd make a good Edmund in King Lear: You register the chip on his shoulder rather than the villainy.

    Thor was a really solid film, I had a good time watching it and it was quite a bit of fun. But there are some shortcomings with it. Positives: 1. Characters; Chris Hemsworth was awesome as Thor! He had this charisma about his character, appropriate timed humor and I honestly felt for his character during serious moments. Tom Hiddleston was great as Loki and so also Anthony Hopkins was fantastic as Odin! Natalie Portman was fine I wouldn't say she stole the show but for what she had to be for this film she worked. Everyone else was fine as well. The humor was very good especially the scene where Thor breaks the coffee mug. The dramatic scenes are very investing as well. 2. Visuals; this movie looks nice especially the scenes at Asgard which are stunning. The special effects are good and the make up surprisingly was awesome on the Ice Giants. 3. What I admired was how different this film felt compared to all the other MCU films we've gotten. This film felt a lot like Lord of the Rings and it just felt different and unique compared to all the other Marvel titles. Negatives: 1. The tone inconsistencies; the film sometimes doesn't know what it wants to be, the humor and serious aspects sometimes don't blend in well and it does make the overall tone feel wonky. 2. Wasn't a fan of the dutch angles, I felt they didn't add anything to the film stylistically and they were just unnecessary. They got kind of annoying at times and distracting. Its not a major flaw but it kind of bugged me. Overall: Thor is a very solid entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is not a perfect movie of course but it was quite a bit of fun, it had good action, some well timed humor and a interesting story. This film is technically a comic book film but honestly I think regular audiences will also enjoy this film as well as fans of epics.

    This is a movie that stands very differently with a lot of people, but to me, it is a very entertaining and well-directed film about a God needs to learn what it means to be a man. Kenneth Branagh is a visionary and every single shot in this movie is beautifully made and you get the feeling that he really put his heart and soul into this. The performances of Chris Hemsworth and Anthony Hopkins are great, but it is Tom Hiddleston's Loki that totally steals the movie.

    Thor is a film that takes risks - and they pay off wonderfully. The movie grounds itself in reality while keeping a mythological and fantasy-esqe tone, and it never loses sight of the humanity within the characters, with elevates this above standard superhero fare.
