I thought it was a refreshing movie. The love story was a little played out but not distracting, I enjoyed all the actors especially the actor who played Thor. Look my wife fell asleep in Iron man 1 and 2, Spiderman, and Hulk. She was awake for the whole movie so there has to be something going on there. :)

I've seen this movie twice and plan to see it again. Besides simply looking at Chris Hemsworth, I enjoyed all the actors. (Natalie Portman seems a bit of a misfit in terms of casting, but it's a forgivable lapse in the face of all the other exceptional talent.) The plot is simple, uncomplicated but engaging. The special effects enhance rather than overpower the scenes. Kenneth Branagh's vision has truly been realized in this work, and I think Stan Lee has much to smile about.

In the tradition of Marvel's other films, Thor is as unique as any other. The broader plot tie-in adds special value to what otherwise is an excellent story in itself. This film will play well to a broad audience and except for fantasy violence and a few scary characters, it is most family friendly. The cast is an odd mix but they do work well together, the minor exception being Natalie Portman. In this film, she is seems oddly out of place. My impression was that she had very little attachment to the character she portrays, searches but never quite hits her mark. The visuals in Thor are stunning. End to end, this film is a work of art (or I should say the work of a thousand artists). See this movie. You won't be disappointed. It's well worth the price of a movie ticket.
