Out of what seemed as Marvel's weakest link in their Avengers-gamble, emerges the most entertaining superhero-flick they've produced since X2. Primarily Thor should be applauded for making the seemingly ridiculous premise (merging über-stylized interdimensional viking-ish fantasy with contemporary action/adventure) work so well - a result attributed mainly to the brisk pace and the likeable cast: spearheaded by Hemsworth's charmingly arrogant Norse god. A popcorn-movie as it should be!

It's pretty tricky to pull off a concept like Thor and make it digestible for audiences worldwide. Sci-fi viking-aliens, magic hammers, frost giants and rainbow bridges? The end result might not be shocking or offer anything really new, but it was a pleasant surprise for a hopeless comic geek like myself. A decent mix of action, humor, bright colors and winks to the fans. Seems a tad forgettable, unfortunately.

Surprisingly Hemsworth did a fairly decent job as Thor and it was overall less silly than I imagined. Portman is solely there for a few quirky lines and to fall in love with Thor within 2 minutes. The 3D is pointless (2D wasn't showing at same time). Has a couple of laughs and some flying hammers. That's really about it.

The fact that this movie worked at ALL, given the odd source material, is a major triumph. The Shakespearean themes in Asgard are nicely balanced with the fish-out-of-water comedy on Earth. Not amazing by any means, but a solid hit for Marvel.

Having had my hopes pounded to the ground during the marketing of this film, it was revelating to find that something looking like a mess up close, came together as a whole when viewed from a distance. Hemsworth - or Hemmy as he will be named from now on - not only showing physical muscle, but also some for charismatic acting, comes off great as an elephant in the room when banned from Asgard. In my opinion the most succesful Marvel feature on the silver screen in years.

I'm not as impressed as most are... Thor is at best a mediocre superhero movie and personally I cannot stand the mutilation of nordic mythology... With that said, Branagh does a good job transforming the weak plot into a decent movie. But why does it have to be about love? I mean it takes place over a couple of days and Thor changes way to fast. We should have had more of the Norse God behaving like one on earth, cause Hemsworth did a fine job as the arrogant God of Thunder! ANOTHER!

Offensive perversion of the Nordic belief. The writers can only redeem themselves, if they have a stab at a 'Bionic Combat Jesus'. Clearly they had no interest, no love and no faith in the otherwise awesome religion, or else they wouldn't have borrowed Gort the robot from 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', or added techno-babble-vikings, the Navii's ugly cousins, and a clichéd brotherhood conflict. Portman's puppy love stint is unbearably sugarsweet, and finallly: THOR DOES NOT CRY - EVER!

Hemsworth did a solid job as Thor, but the film is bogged down by useless 3-D, poor supporting roles and a weak villain. All in all, Branagh gave us a decent adaptation of the comic book that serves better as hype for the upcoming "The Avengers" than a standalone film.

The Space Aryans with a few token minorities (including a magic negro doorman) swing giant elongating anime weapons at frost giants. Mighty Thor acts like a spoiled big blonde baby until various daddy issues crop up getting him kicked out of Asgard. That's the plot. Apparently this is the best they can do for one of Marvel's campier heroes. There's gaudy CGI sprayed across the screen to break up the monotony of people talking n' stuff. Portman is really unsuited as the banal love interest.

Marvel Studios wisely made the storyline simpler than Iron Man 2's overstuffed bloater, so it's disappointing that a hero as unique as Thor doesn't get a premiere vehicle w/ all of the oomph that made the 1st Iron Man so much fun. The problems r small, but they keep things from soaring: the frost giants r generic, the fight scenes r often a smash-cut mish-mash,& the split between Loki& Thor would carry more weight had more good times between them been established. Still, this is mostly well done

The Jack Kirby-esque design of Asgard and the casting of Hemsworth and Hiddleston were absolutely perfect! It's unfortunate that the plot ends up following such a cookie-cutter progression which is becoming all-too-tired with Marvel's slate of hero flicks. If the producers weren't so adamant about including ultimately pointless nods and cameos to tie into Avengers, the film could have benefited from a slower-paced script that expanded upon the Thor/Jane relationship and Loki's motivations.

Charming Hemsworth seems suited for the titular role and provides the proper balance of arrogant prick/humbled hero. There are moments of great action and sharp humor but the supporting cast falters. Portman is surprisingly disappointing, Thor's loyalists and Dennings prove little more than comic relief and the villains flicker with promise before wilting into tired cliches. The creation of Asgard is breathtaking however and the visuals alone make this worth a view before 'Avengers' comes out.

Somehow Asgard's proceedings felt more sincere than Earth's, despite all the classic fish-out-of-water humor propping up the latter. I guess it comes down to the talent of Hopkins, Hiddleston, and Elba vs. Portman, Dennings, and Skarsgard. Brannagh brought a suitable flair for romantic fantasy eye-candy but he's a bit too in love with the canted angles here.

Thor never really struck me as a concept that easily lent itself to a big Hollywood production. However Branagh does a solid job in overcoming (& at times embracing) the comic books inherent silly concepts. Hemsworth does well in the lead role, & Portman makes the most of her seriously underdeveloped character. Overall it looks supurb, has a good villian & is a fun ride, but is seriously limited by the terribly developed character relationships & the wasteful use of its near 2 hour runtime.

Very impressed with Hemsworth, who has the exact amount of charisma needed for the part. Hopkins is gold and Skarsgård is good as always. All too predictable most of the time, but a fairly decent cast, overall good execution, a lot of well-placed testosterone and some great sequences in particular make this well worth a watch. This more than anything has me looking forward to The Avengers. Skip the 3D, though, it's worthless - watch it in 2D if you can.

Props to Thor for successfully putting a seemingly way too powerful superhero into the "normal" world and props for picking a very entertaining lead. After that, however, this is just a typical summer blockbuster. Not a bad one, but nothing more. The action was decent, the effects were decent, and the supporting cast was decent.

"Marvel's The Avengers: Assemble" series continues with the surprisingly fun and engaging introduction of "Thor", as well as the biggest expansion of the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" seen yet. By literally exposing other worldly realms in the universe to the audience, fans can expect "God" like threats in future films if we now have "God" like heroes. Chris Hemsworth is heavenly as "Thor" making it no wonder why Natalie Portman is in awe and nonstop eye-fucking him throughout the film.

Can't help but feel rushed: its surprisingly low key vfx, generic story prevent the film from attaining greater heights. Despite all that, "Thor" remains perfectly enjoyable if unremarkable escapism that doesn't take itself too seriously. Hemsworth's screen presence complements its character robust nature, I also like the idea of the interrelated worlds (had never read the comic book before). PM me if you'd like to discuss Kat Dennings' role in this movie, I'm dying to know what it was.

There is just something about a Shakespearian Director directing a Marvel movie that spells DISASTER - and YET Thor gets away with it, mostly because the movie doesn't take itself too seriously. Thor is surprisingly funny and all the way through you can allmost feel Brannagh winking and laughing along with you. Hemsworth is great as the arrogante and almost childishly selfish Thor. Having expected true horror I was really entertained. Best Superhero movie since Iron Man.

The movie is actually very funny from time to time, which is probably the only reason it is still above 50. It is a blockbuster with special effects and good acting from Natalie Portman, but I find the story extremely poor (a blockbuster MUST have an exciting end battle. Thor's finally fight scene is a pure joke, especially on the story level). Considering the possibilities such a production budget offers, I was very disappointed.

Talk about a thorough exercise in mediocrity. So little occurs in the span of two hours that it's hard to even remember what happened. The drama is painfully flat; for a father-son dynamic amongst three characters, there's so little emotional impact. The fact that I know nothing about the Thor comics shouldn't inhibit me from enjoying a film about it, but that's exactly one of the film's most glaring problems. It merely remains a shadow of its source material.

A good handful of my friends don't like this movie. I don't see why. Hemsworth, even with his dyed eyebrows, is solidly cast, as is Hiddleston as one of the best Marvel baddies on screen. The love story doesn't seem entirely necessary and the slow motion scenes feel a bit melodramatic, but otherwise, I think it's a very entertaining movie about redemption, with a great mix of emotion, humor, and thrills. One of the best from phase one.

Not all that great. Generic and exceptionally unremarkable escapism. The plot is quite poor, and the characters are boring and badly developed. Thor is boringly perfect; Loki is too transparent and bland (and almost more sympathetic than Thor!). And why was Portman (or that Darcy character) even in this film? Doesn't hold a candle to some of the other comic book superhero movies out there. It's watchable, though, if forgettable.

It would either take two more Branaghes to carve something Shakespearean out of the cheesy premise, or just one that has the courage to defy at least some of the Hollywood rules. After all, superhero output of the era had laid the groundwork, why not capitalize on it?

If Thor had served at least a few years of sentence on earth, then the love and the transformation would have made sense. But I don't get how he becomes another man in matter of days or how a scientist falls in love with a topless guy who does not speak or behave sense. Does'nt make any sense but again the movie does not claim to be a movie of sense so it is possible to focus on the action and overlook the nonsense.

Surprised to see complaints of a weak villain here, as Hiddleston's Loki is one of the film's greatest strengths. It's one of the best villainous performances in recent memory, with sympathetic and believable motivations for dastardly deeds. Iron Man this ain't, but it's still a great deal of fun. Branagh strikes the perfect balance of over-the-top fantasy and humour, and draws great performances out of his cast. Hemsworth is a star, and Elba really shines here. See it flat, the 3D adds nothing.

Hemsworth kills it as Thor. I know the Thor films are among the least lauded in the MCU, butI found it to be quite fun and engaging. What intrigues me about Thor is that his story is completely different from most superheroes. He didn't gain his power or construct a suit; he has always had them. He is a God! He is all powerful and his personality and actions illustrate that. A refreshing flick that gets straight into the action. The romance and plot are dull, but the film is really enjoyable

It's a little hard to get past the two wildly contrasting worlds, especially when the futuristic-space-viking one is saturated with CGI and cheesy costumes (though Elba's gatekeeper intrigues). Story-wise, a decent arrogant-hero-humbled premise headed by the charming hunk Hemsworth (the supporting characters are largely forgettable) is weighed down by a cliche jealous brother/father's approval sub-plot in space and a dull romance on earth (Portman's strong scientist Jane feels cheapened here).

Thor is ultimately a wholly unremarkable film. The art direction feels a bit too "tech-fantasy" for my liking making it lackluster and the overall lack of any character depth outside of the title character results in very bland scenes when he isn't in them. Oh and way too many random dutch angles. With that said Branagh is a master of inter-family squabbling when dealing with larger than life characters and what could have been melodramatic pap is actually handled quite well.

It's a mediocre movie, but honestly, I'll give it points for trying its very best. Branagh, he was trying his best. The writers, they were trying their best. It might sound like a slam, but it's not. In a lot of these superhero movies I get the impression that these people aren't really trying their best. The visual style is actually really interesting, even though the subject matter is stupid and sillygoose. The script is full of unfunny, awful jokes, but at least there were some surprises.

I enjoyed the movie, but I can see why it has its detractors. There isn't a lot of action for a superhero movie, it falls into the trap of having personality change and falling in love happen in less than a week, and the CGI feels a bit soulless in some places. At the same time I felt that the humor, the journey of Thor to look at his own flaws, and the general idea of trying to prove oneself made the movie enjoyable.

Thor is a visually pleasing and well shot film. No doubt. Chris Hemsworth looks and acts the part as well as could be expected. Tom Hiddleston's performance outdoes every other aspect of the film.

While the idea of an old Norse god spinning into our everyday reality is one of the boldest moves i've seen in sci-fi/comic movies, it's nothing more than a fun ride. Fight scenes are good, Asgard is impressive, but that's mostly it. Sidecast (Natalie Portman and others) isn't good at all and Loki is waay to soft to be a god of mischief and cunning. Watch this movie only for fun or if you're expecting something more from the upcoming Avengers.

Branagh was definitely the right man to direct this. The story (Thor stripped of his powers and sent to Earth) was a great choice for the first movie.

Nice action, good humor, very enjoyable.

Thor is by no stretch an ambitious film, saved in large part by a dedicated cast and director making the best of what is ultimately a somewhat dull story.

Suffering from the tedium that is inevitable when incompetent filmmaking serves a meaningless story, this relies heavily on the charms of its two leads. And, in fact, Portman is enormously attractive here (with natural makeup that succeeds in bringing out her undeniable beauty), playing a gentle, rather touching character. One suspects, however, that reviewers paid little attention to this, the film's chief virtue, and, if such is the case, it reflects yet another widespread critical blindspot.

Unlike most other superhero flicks, as the cheap hollywood comedy and action (although shot well) seem secondary to the purpose. I won't doubt that flaws exist, but this does much with the thor character and the Shaksperean sensibilities of Branagh to make a compelling coming-of-age story, as well as some slight Nietzschean parallels to this sort of "god-man". Much of the earth sections were rushed, though.

Highly enjoyable, though it seems a bit undercooked in places.

The 3D is -- yup! -- completely worthless. If you're gonna use 3D, do it in such a way that makes people, after seeing the movie, either A) want to see it again; B) tell their friends to see it in 3D; or C) both. "Thor" does none of these. Luckily it's worth seeing because of what actually happens IN the movie (which is the main thing of course). Just don't shell out your extra $$$ to see it in 3D. Has some humor and alright action. Might be a little rushed. AND, Kat Dennings. Mmm, Kat Dennings.

Marvel once again brings another obscure superhero into the limelight. Granted, having Kenneth Branagh behind the camera helps out a lot, but the writing is what makes this a good time. Tom Hiddleston's performance at Loki is the film's best performance, even if his motivations can be a little by-the-book. Chris Hemsworth doesn't seem quite as comfortable with his role here as he does later in the MCU, but on the whole the comedic elements of Thor overcome some of this film's smaller faults.

Thor, the famous Nordic god of abs has it rough. Despite having a big hammer he is not very smart and struggles to kapow all the snowmen tribe to oblivion, thus he has to go on a journey to learn how to say please and thank you and where would you find a better place for that than earth? Now I wouldn't want to spoil you all the plot, but just know this kids, that saying please gets you places and that Natalie Portman had to longingly ooh and aah at his abs, hence having a six-pack is also ok.

Branagh's "Thor" is quite an agreeable superhero epic. There's plenty of spectacular action, character tension and, perhaps slightly surprisingly, laugh-out-loud moments. Despite the lighthearted aura that permeates a big chunk of the film's duration, the creators eventually couldn't help but rub the story's epicness right in your face, with an outstretched outro characterized by typically pompous dialogue underscored by cheesy music. Good humour and great action versus delusions of grandeur.

The script serves no purpose other than to link together various SFX heavy set-pieces which are - with few exceptions - superfluous. In today's world of the gritty, hyperreal superhero film, the story feels as though it would've worked better in an animated setting where suspension of disbelief stretches just that little bit further. A great cast collectively phone it in, but you can't blame them: their paper thin characters are entirely defined by their abilities instead of their personalities.

I know, I sound horribly elitist, but I actually think it is the other way around here: Hollywood are severely talking down to me by making such a predictable bull**** movie (completely harassing an otherwise interesting saga on its way) and by having such a complete and utter douchebag as leading actor. Hercules in New York 2.

Decent, humurous, full of action and it just looks mesmerizing. Those were the things I looked for, those were the things I got. I'm happy.

By the numbers, but entertaining. Unnecessary characters abound, but at least they got a good cast to do it. Which I guess speaks to the philosophy of the movie: make a good time. Who cares if the character played by Kat is unnecessary and the character played by Portman is very very simplistic? It doesn't matter! It's Kat and Natalie! I don't give a shit and neither should you, go see it because it's entertaining. I don't even like Thor as a character, for the record. But he's done well.

Fun enough off-earth, a dreadful mess on-earth. Some of the worst 3D I can remember as well.

I have always thought Thor would be the hardest Marvel character to adapt to cinema, but somehow it was much better than most of the Marvel movies. Chris Hemsworth was born to play Thor and the Asgard was interesting visually. Also just like Defoe's Green Goblin, Loki character has a well-thought depth. Warrior 3 part didn't fit well and I would have kept that out, but I think Branagh did a nice job of dramatizing a normally pretty over the top story.

Again, better than I was expecting, but this is definitely the weakest so far. Branagh is just lost in the flashing CGI jumble, and tries pathetically to be heard by tilting the camera a whole bunch, and it's really embarrassing. It has its moments, and once again it wasn't the disaster I was expecting, but I didn't have much fun. The frost giants are absolutely terrible, like third-tier Star Trek villains, especially the makeup.

Thor is a real tricky character to adapt for film. A lot of dense mythology and the character could easily come across as silly. This film is probably the best result we could have hoped for. Usually, Thor is not the most sympathetic character, but this film did a great job at the fantasy elements, but also making Thor more accessible to us mere mortals.

Thor actually has one of the coolest plots in recent comic book movie memory, but suffers pretty badly from its direction and shoddy cinematography. For a fun night of liver cirrhosis, take a shot every time the DP uses a dutch angle.

This is one of Marvel's finer films (I'd probably rank it fourth), with a near-perfect mix of action, humor, and sentimentality. Hemsworth is believable as the blond-haired Norse frat boy type, and Tom Hiddleston is even better as Loki, playing the character with a (feigned?) vulnerability that helps you to understand why Thor and company would fall for his manipulations. The one improvement I would make is with Jane Foster - she falls for Thor much too quickly and we are never quite sure why.

Tom Hiddleston is the true star of this show, subtly mastering his role as the God of Mischief. It has a bit of trouble at the start, with a trite script and some melodrama. Magnificent set design and well-directed action sequences top this off as a good, not great installment in the MCU.

Thor convincingly holds it's own as an enjoyable MCU Phase 1 installment. Underrated Director Kenneth Branagh orchestrates a film that doesn't take itself too seriously and caters for all with the perfect balance of humour, action and fantasy adventure. And Chris Hemsworth is perfectly cast as the God of Thunder. The scale isn't particularly overwhelming compared to other recent superhero films. But regardless Thor is a thoroughly enjoyable, light hearted and family friendly superhero film.

I went in without caring much about Thor and I will admit the movie kept me engaged. It had potential to be really silly and dumb looking, what with the garish helmets, armor and little hammer, but they avoided that. The action scenes were engaging. They really wasted Portman's character though. She's supposed to be this really smart scientist, but all it takes is for some arrogant, well built, and potentially crazy guy to kiss her on the hand and she almost faints from his charm. Decent flick.

Points for cool space visuals and Idris Elba. Everything else was meh to ugh. It probably could have used another 1/2 hour just to let events and interactions bake a little longer. Captain America at least had more focus and coherence. The woes of super hero origin story added to those of films that merely serve as a bridge to another.

I just don't think Thor is the Marvel character for me. Something about him doesn't connect. The weakest of the franchise, in my book.
