Witty, charming and very current, the big screen adaptation of Thor is sure to catapult its star Chris Hemsworth (whose wife, Elsa Pataky, ironically stars in Fast Five) to leading man status.

[The] result isn't as much fun as the Iron Man movies, but it's better than The Incredible Hulk and a worthy entry in the fast-growing Avengers series.

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

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

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.

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.
December 13, 2011
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.

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.

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.
