Thor (2011)

thor_movie_poster-10

The powerful but arrogant god Thor is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders. (IMDb)

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).

6.3/10

  1. I was actually surprised by how much I liked the connection of the two worlds! For I thought this was gonna be impossible for them to do. In the comics its a rainbow bridge that connects Asgard and earth which is even cheesy for comic book standards! lol. but they pulled it off good considering. Still, I can see your point of view.
