Thor Doesn't Disappoint...

True there are a few changes to the Mythos, but overall a nice touch. Great job on casting, especially Anthony Hopkins as Odin. Asgard looks beautiful and the battle scenes are a real treat. If I must nitpick, I would say the Earth scenes seemed a bit the small city in Superman 2. It would have been interesting to see Thor in a more bigger setting to get a real feel of the awkwardness he would cause. I'm sure some die hards might have other issues, but from what I like about Thor is represented well in this movie. I don't want to give away anything, especially the "after the credits" clip all Marvel movies have had as of late, but there are a few gems that fans of the comics will notice.... All in all, I'd say this gets a solid 8/10 all around...

Excellent special effects but mediocre story

There was no real character development other than for Thor and Loki. The characters were one dimensional and did not progress throughout the story. The Gatekeeper is probably the only memorable and funny character. The shift between the view of Earth and the homeland was disjointed and the characters were only good for one-liners. Go if you want to see amazing special effects but don't expect an amazing innovative storyline.

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
