Thor - Movie review


Thor - Movie review

The introduction of the gullible yet fun film that is Marvel's take on the old thunder god, Thor, has contributed to an incredible outbreak of interest in mythical Norse culture. Chris Hemsworth, 27-year-old Australian star, performs as the mighty thunder god with swirling hair and strong shapely abs.

Thor probably cost Marvel $150 million to produce in 2011, and most of it went to the computer-generated imagery. Thor was really just one more element in Marvel's increasingly overcrowded superhero scene.

The film might be perfect as an interactive children's video, with piglets portrayed by Thor, Odin, and others. This is bleak devastation in the world of movies featuring superheroes from comic books.

Odin is about to pass down his Asgardian throne to his son Thor, when a small group of Frost Giants, the ferocious rivals of the Asgardians, burst into Asgard's weapons vault, rudely interrupting the ascension.

Thor intends vengeance after the assault.  He sneaks into the enemy's home-world and there he fights alongside his oldest friends and his younger brother Loki.

And just as they were about to get themselves killed, Odin arrives to save the day and ends up banishing Thor to Earth without his hammer. Enter Jane Foster, who was scouring the southwestern night sky of the desert to find an enigmatic phenomenon she could not comprehend.

She assumes this is a link between Einstein and Rosen, but cannot confirm it. It unexpectedly emerges, but then she races down from the lab around the anomaly and attempts to push it away.

It continues to magically appear. This movie may be completely stupid. In the latest wonky design, the landscape of Asgard often appears like Tron's fictional universe. It plays a tiny position to support actors such as Jeremy Renner and the Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano.  But it's a nice, fun summer film, nevertheless.
