Thor (2011)

In this adaptation of the Marvel comic, the reckless actions of Thor (Chris Hemsworth, Star Trek) reignite an ancient, intergalactic war. The powerful warrior is cast out of the world of Asgard and sent to live amongst pesky humans on Earth as punishment. Here he becomes protector when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the dark forces of Asgard to attack Earth. Anthony Hopkins is Odin, King of Asgard, and Natalie Portman is earthbound scientist Jane Foster.

The film marks Portman's first foray into comic book movies. Of her decision, she said: "I just thought it sounded like a weird idea because [actor-director] Kenneth Branagh's directing it, so I was just like, 'Kenneth Branagh doing Thor is super-weird, I've gotta do it'."

One of the worst of the Marvel bunch, Hemsworth does his best with an awkward character but comes across as wooden.

First off - Idris Elba in a BIT part? He's Idris Elba!!! C'mon! Very disappointing. Great cast. Dubious director (c'mon - have you seen his SLEUTH? Seriously? FRANKENSTEIN? Honestly?) Neither a whizz bang fun epic for kids along the lines of CAP'N AMERICA F**K YEAH! nor an adult fable along the darker line of Chris Nolan's BATMAN and DARK KNIGHT - THOR is...

A few funny moments but that's it.

I had heard some good things about this movie, but while watching it I was having a hard time staying awake. Don't get me wrong, there were some funny moments but in the end it fell flat with the story. Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman had no chemistry at all, and I felt no attachment to any of the characters. They could've done a much better job I feel.

Regret taking my boyfriend...

With Superhero/action movies of today - half of the analolouge consisting of a detailed dscription of machinery or cars or weapons or something, it was great that this movie seemed to get on with it, without Thor having to monologue his power - it was simply understood through actions. BIG respect for ANTHONYU HOPKINS, who in my opinion should be given any...

I wasn't expecting much from Thor, but as far as super hero movies go this is right up there. I was entertained!

Good family movie

Wasn't expecting much from this movie, 'cos I'm not a big Marvel fan.. But I love Natalie Portman, so thought I'd check it out. Was pleasantly surprised by this one! Good storyline if a little predictable, and some fun fight scenes.

If you want a brain-melting good time, then this film is totally worth it! Plus there is lots to look at :)

Thor delivers the goods so long as butt is being kicked and family conflict is playing out in celestial dimensions, but is less thrilling during the Norse warrior god's rather brief banishment on Earth.

The most problematic hurdle in The Avengers’ path is cleared with ease and some style by a film that makes a virtue of its inherent silliness. You’re up, Captain America.

Turn off the snark-o-meter, and this is a return to form for Marvel, introducing a new hero we'll be happy to see again in, oh, about a year or so.
