Yes the special effects were great (particularly when viewed in 3-D IMAX) and there was tons of action and awesome sound--but what I enjoyed the most about Thor was that there was actually great acting, editing, storytelling. Script provided character development, Shakespearean themes, and an interesting plot. Also, several laugh-out-loud moments. Good comic timing by Natalie, Chris, and the girlf who pllayed Darcy. Whoever she is--she is going to move up towards B list rank. Won't be suprised if she starts getting main or steady support actress roles. She was a hoot. Much of the dialogue was snappy and almost seemed impromptu. THe movie "winked" at itself
Chris is a great actor! Will be a huge star after this . PPlus, he is just smokin' HOT!! He had amazing chemistry with Natalie and the actor who played Loki. I like that Loki was not complete black and white--but tortured. Good themes of humility, honor, courage, etc. Plus, great little homage moments and for-tellin

I bought tickets on Fandango, didn't have a printer to print them out, and then went to the theater and showed them my credit card. The theater had no record that I had bought the tickets so I had to pay for them a second time. The movie was not worth double ticket prices that's for sure. Some of the 3d scenes looked like toys or something out of a video game. Whatever movie you go to don't use Fandango, they are no good. Just buy the tickets at the theater and you won't have to pay twice.

What a good summer movie! Lots of action and great visual effects and costumes. The best part that you could take family to see...very little "scary" violence. Little to no language problems etc for the younger kids.
