Lea's Review of Thor
The warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth.
Once, mankind accepted a simple truth: that they were not alone in this universe. Some worlds man believed home to their Gods. Others they knew to fear. From around the cold and darkness came the Frost Giants, threatening to plunge the mortal world into a new ice age. But humanity would not face this threat alone. Our armies drove the Frost Giants back into the heart of their own world. The cost was great. In the end, their king fell, and the source of their power was taken from them. With the last great war ended, we withdrew from the other worlds and returned home at the Realm Eternal, Asgard. And here we remain as the beacon of hope, shining out across the stars. And though we have fallen into man's myths and legends, it was Asgard and its warriors that brought peace to the universe.
Great intro at the beginning of the movie, that made me clued to my seat. The cast was perfect, Chris Hemsworth was an excellent choice as Thor and the always reliable Anthony Hopkins was the perfect Odin. Tom Hiddleston as Loki was an amazing antagonist with a dark desire. Loki's part of the story is very good and his origin made way for a different side to him. A wonderfully enjoyable film which is non-stop entertainment. special effects are spectacular. From the epic battle scenes between the almighty gods, to the amazing scenes in Asgard,
