Movie Review: THOR

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins
Directed by Kenneth Brannagh
The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.

The summer blockbuster season has officially begun!

Thor is a blast. Fun and exciting - a great adventure with terrific special effects. The fighting sequences are fantastic especially when Thor is using his hammer.

Secondary characters are thoroughly engaging. Loki as the Trickster and also Thor's brother who creates havoc. As Natalie Portman's assistant, Kat Dennings does a wonderful job. And you can't beat Sir Anthony Hopkins as anything but as Odin he's amazing. And a fun tidbit - Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye (in the upcoming Avengers movie) has a brief part.

Sif - Thor's BFF

Always love Agent Colson

And of course, there's Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder. Goodness what a hunk. Let's just admit it, he's the real reason to go see Thor.

Yes, he is a god!

Fun Fact! Here he is as James T Kirk's self-sacrificing dad in Star Trek!
THOR is really, really good, but I wouldn't say great - except for the looking at Chris Hemsworth part - because for one, oddly enough, there isn't hot sexual chemistry between Portman and Hemsworth. I know, didn't make sense to me either. Hey, sitting in the theater, I certainly had great chemistry with him! And there is a lot of focus on what's going on with the secondary characters and not enough on Thor's storyline.

But all in all, for summer movie goers and especially Marvel fans - oh, any anyone who wants to see one of the most gorgeous creatures on the planet - it's a must see! And be sure to stay until after the credits to see a short clip from the upcoming AVENGERS movie!

And another fun fact: Chris is brother to Liam who plays Gale in THE HUNGER GAMES movie! They even practiced lines together when Liam was up for the part!

I heard from Jeaniene Frost that there wasn't enough man flesh in the movie. ;) One shirtless scene and that was it. So glad you captured that scene. *stares at pic* Thanks! :)

Like you said, the movie was good but not great. The important thing was I had fun and I wouldn't mind watching it again sometime :-)

Juju at Tales of said...

OMG I can't wait. That man is so hot it shouldn't be legal.

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Haha, first though: EYE CANDY!! Mm, I may have to watch this movie for Chris... and you know, the action. ;)

Liz @ Cleverly Inked said...

He looks to much like Terry from True blood/Southern vamp.

Blodeuedd said...

I am sure gonna see it :) I mean Thor comes from my part of the world, lol

Cherry said...

Yah you were right, there wasn't any spark between Chris and Natalie... was kinda let down, that was...

YA Book Queen said...

Yikes, how could Portman and Hemsworth not have any chemistry? (and holy crap, how many muscles does that guy have??)

Glad that other actors did well though, I didn't know Kat Dennings was in this one.

I love the movie. It was nice and Natalie and Chris did have great chemistry. They just didn't jump into bed like most people would expect them to be which I found refreshing. And I love Loki, he was so cool.
