Being of the "slightly" older generation (early 40's) I'm a bit embarrassed to confess that I actually really enjoy the Marvel films...as a kid me and a few mates were totally into Marvel comics - Daredevil, Captain America, Captain Britain, Iron Man and the Avengers being the pick of the crop. So it is with a fair bit of interest that I've seen (and, ahem, bought) pretty much all of the Marvel films so far. Thor was never a favorite of mine back in the day, but I took the girlfriend and her son along to see this, just really to tick the box of Marvel films that I'd seen. But what a surprise...I thought this film was fantastic. Excellent special effects, good acting, good choice of actors, good humour etc. I must also admit to giving a silent cheer when Thor catches the hammer after his scrap with the Destroyer! Sad, but true. I'll definitely be pre-ordering when it becomes available. Bring on the Avengers...'nuff said.
