Not too bad. Like most of these marvel movies there really isn't much here outside of some light entertainment but it wasn't horrible or anything. The CGI was noticeably bad at some points which was strange and the camerawork had one to many dutch angles, it just started to get annoying. Hiddleston, Skarsgard and Portman (goddamn she's beautiful!) were all good. Obviously not as fun or well made as the Avengers.
There are so many other characters Marvel could adapt to the big screen, but they're intent on sticking with these dated golden age heroes whose story lines are just way too corny to translate to live-action, and Thor was no exception.
TELL ME!!", said Tom Hiddleston's Loki to Anthony Hopkins in the early moment of the film. Yeah, Tell me that The award for best superhero movie of the summer should go to this, rather than the overrated X-Men: First Class. Branagh disguised Shakespearean tragedy swiftly. With a hammer.
Underrated. Instead of going the obvious comic book route of "I'm super serial", this film does the complete opposite and indulges in its overall silliness becoming a fresh action/comedy with developed characters and charismatic performances. It's all fairly standard stuff on paper, but the direction is just bizarre enough for me to not write it off as another comic book movie ala Superman or Spiderman.
Although the storyline is somewhat predictable and clichés but it makes up for the screenplay that was well written, well-shot action scenes, and the visuals that were quite spectacular, and there is plenty of humor. This movie is flawed but still quite entertaining with plenty of strengths and weaknesses found just like in so many comic adaptations.
Fatigue with super hero origin stories aside, the latest entry in the Marvel canon is a satisfyingly grandiose comic book yarn. Branagh's Shakespearean background proves perfect for the story's mythical elements, and he displays a refreshing self-depreciation. Some stiff expositional dialogue in the film's climax aside, it's a surprisingly adept mixture of comic book goofiness and epic mythos.
A rushed, confused, tepid romp through surface-level Norse mythology and half-assed comic book accuracy. Most comic book conversions have been pretty awful these past couple of years, and "Thor" is no different. Why are the Norse Gods speaking with English accents? Why are they all mixed races? Why is Loki such a snappy dresser? Why isn't Thor a true god-man instead of a stubble-toting Fabio lookalike?
from a great comic book, comes sheer mediocrity. most of the performances are clunky as anything, with natalie portman particularly awful. tom hiddleston gains some credit as loki, but it not enough to save the overall wooden quality of this film. it seems to be all CGI, and overacted voices, and not enough of the things that made the comic interesting. plus, the main fight was just one massive cop-out. pure formula.
