Exiled to Earth after his arrogance fans the flames of an ancient conflict, The Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) of Asgard discovers the meaning of humility when a powerful old foe dispatches a destructive force to crush humanity. Only when the banished prince has defeated an opponent capable of crushing him in battle will he learn what it takes to be a true leader. Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, and Tadanobu Asano co-star in a comic-book adventure from acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I Didn't Expect This Type of Movie From The God of Thunder,Actor in his own right Kenneth Branagh took a very interesting risk with this movie and while it wouldn't win any Oscars i feel it was an Endearing Hero Story! Chris Hemsworth Was a Convincing Avenger Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin Was What Really Gave it Heart! Can't Wait For The Sequel This Fall!
I enjoyed it. I used to purchase Marvel's Thor as a kid since the 60's. I long waited for the day when live action would be able to provide the great special effects as was drawn and produced in the cartoon characters.
Chris Hemsworth is a magnificent and easy-on-the-eyes Thor in this 2011 movie. I especially liked the action sequences between the mythologicals and the humans and the method in which Thor lost his arrogance and became the hero I always knew he could be. I highly recommend this movie! It's fun for all ages!
When I first started watching this movie I was thinking, "agh, another movie with bad lighting and sound effects", however, as I continued to watch, it actually turned into a very entertaining film. Not real sure I'd call if funny as others have, but I'd definitely recommend it for sci-fi adventure.
