Against his father Odin's will, The Mighty Thor -a powerful but arrogant warrior god -recklessly reignites an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
While it's not as great as Iron Man or Xmen First Class, I think Thor is still a very decent superhero blockbuster. Since I'm not familiar with most superheroes, I like the 'origins' storylines that most superhero movies seem to follow nowadays. Perhaps boring to some, but for newcomers it's great! The acting, visuals and sound are just what you'd expect from a 2011 superhero blockbuster. Great entertainment for an evening!
Most of all, this movie made me want to start reading the comics (which I know I won't do), so it's a good thing a sequel (and the Avengers) is coming to continue the great cinematic superhero revival.
I like it even though I was a bit disappointed - I thought it's gonna be 2h full of action, but in the end it was just about maybe 45 minutes.
They could've really done more with that destroyer machine - it was almost over before it even started!!! There was a lot of time spend describing the characters so ... there's no prequel for sure. I like the outcome and how they displayed Odin, Asgard & especially Heimdall and Bifröst.
The soundtrack is great and Chris Hemsworth did an amazing job in his role. So I can't wait to see him and all the other marvel heroes again in "The Avengers" (2012).
