  Thor out of five

| | See all owensouthwood's reviews (77)

The best parts of Thor are those set in his homeworld. The fight scenes are good and the enemy Frost Giants are great baddies, if a little cliche. I did not think much of the earth-based characters who got drawn into his adventure - they just fell a bit flat for me. Despite being a superhero, Thor wasn't very likable for most of this movie. The "fish out of water" scenes of Thor trapped on Earth were pretty much by the numbers, and a tad predictable. I think they also messed with the comic book mythology a bit - no Donald Blake in this movie - instead we get a rather feeble love interest whose name I can't even remember.

Yeah Thor was an OK movie. Felt very similar to Green Lantern in places, but not quite as good.

  Good superhero flick thats not trying to be dark knight!!

Really enjoyed this, Kenneth B really capture the home plant of Thor, and really done well keeping it classy.
Chris Hemsworth was very good and you have to admire the shape he got into for role.
Natalie Portman Good as usual, little under-used but pretty as a peach!
Antony Hopkins Well you can bank on him as usual.
Watch this i think its the best of Iron man, captain america, all the spider men & that awful superman film.

i didnt really know to much about Thor before i watched this film and was looking forward to watching.
in my view its not in the league of the spiderman,batman films etc.
i wont be in a hurry to watch the sequel.

  Highly Entertaining!

Admittedly, Thor is not one of my favourite Marvel characters and I didn't go out of my way to see this. I received it as a present, and my youngster (4 year old) expressed an interest in watching it, so we put it on one lazy Saturday afternoon. It is in fact an excellent film, which has a strong cast and is well directed, with an entertaining story to boot. I could find nothing to fault with this film, and even lapped up the appearance of a certain bow and arrow totting character (Marvel fans know who I mean!). My 4 year old also enjoyed the film, pretty much all the content is suitable, but he found some of the early frost giant scenes a little scary. Off the back of this and Captain America, I am definitely looking forward to the forthcoming Avengers movie.

I had seen the trailers for this film and again didn't get the time to see this at the cinema, so I pre-ordered.
I didn't quite know what to expect from Kenneth Brannagh as he is more well known for Frankenstein and Shakespere.

WOW, this film is brilliant from start to finish, I'm so glad they got Chris as Thor, he is excellent, very well played, acted and heartfelt.
Anthony Hopkins, wow again, he so suits the role, the new guy who plays Loki is fantastic.
Natalie plays her role brilliantly, her character is very curious, almost like an innocent child.

There are some funny moments in this film and there are some heart-breaking moments and one scene that makes me cry each time I have watched the film.
There really is twists and turns within this film and I really hope they bring out Thor 2.
Also watch out for a scene after the end credits, it is defo worth the wait and raises more questions than answers, but brilliant.

Well done to the cast, crew, Kenneth Brannagh, production etc, they have done a stella job with this.
This film really has heart, laughs and shows that even gods need to learn what it truly means to have power and the responsibilities that come with it.

  An enjoyable Mavel romp

I was never into Thor as a kid,it was the fantastic four and then Spiderman and later the Avengers,that being so, I thought this was a great film ( although the costumes were a bit over the top and I did wonder what a japanese man was doing in Assgard ) the lead role was really well cast and acted and there was just the right amount of humour so as not to make it "Eddie Murpheyly silly"

I went into this a bit sceptical as I find many of the Marvel films hit and miss. To my surprise both myself and my wife really enjoyed this film. The key to this kind of film is sympathising and liking the lead characters, too often films focus on the action sequences and forget there needs to be a bit of a story with character you care about, and this is done well. Chris Hemsworth is great (very jealous of his body, he's in awesome shape!!), Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman are good as always. Overall it's an enjoyable fun film with awesome FX. If you're dubious hire it first but I'm sure like me you'll be pleasantly surprsised by how good it is!

It's bright, it's colourful, it has some laughs, thrills and spills and when all is said and done there are certainly a lot worse comic book films out there in the mix than Thor.

Although it struggles at times to evenly balance out the Earth and Asgaard set portions of the story (at times clumsily flitting between them both) the strong enough performance by Chris Hemsworth as Thor keeps you engaged. The visuals and production design are pretty impressive in places (especially Asgaard) but that's to be expected nowadays. It's not as breezy and effortless feeling as Iron Man or even 2008's The Incredible Hulk felt, but it's less laboured than Iron Man 2.

Obviously there's an element of pre-planning for the first The Avengers film due out in May 2012, but for the most part the film manages to avoid feeling too much like it's just another part of the required jigsaw and find it's way to becoming an enoyable enough blockbuster on it's own.
