Thor Exiled to Earth after his arrogance fans the flames of an ancient conflict, The Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) of Asgard discovers the meaning of humility when a powerful old foe dispatches a destructive force to crush humanity. Only when the banished prince has defeated an opponent capable of crushing him in battle will he learn what it takes to be a true leader. Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, and Tadanobu Asano co-star in a comic-book adventure from acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This was definitely a good movie but like most superhero flicks it didnt stick to the comics too well. Either way though it had its fair share of action and unlike this, this isnt a superhero movie about how they gain their powers or whatnot but this is about how a god realizes his true potential. If youre into Marvel then definitely check this out! Plus if you get this version at Best Buy, you can get a reprint of the first appearance of Thor and also a free month of Marvel Digital Comics.

The God of Thunder learns his strength
Posted by: MermaidQueen89 from: Fargo,ND on
There is alot in common with the Norse myth and the movie. But it also stays true to the comic- example being the Asgardian Goddess Sif is not Thor's love interest/wife she is one of his best friends, he instead falls for a lovely mortal by the name of Jane Foster an astrophysicist. There are many amusing one-liners. And the supporting cast is awesome as well as Chris Hemsworth who looks like he was built to play the God and wield the Hammer. His Brother Loki the God of Mischief is played very well by Tom Hiddleston ( Both play a role in The Avengers). Their father Odin is played by non other than Sir. Anthony Hopkins himself ( yeah Hannibal Lecter without the creepiness.) and I dont need to tell you he plays Odin with great range and depth. I will end this with my fav. line from the movie. " What is this some kind of Renaissance Festival? UH? Sir we have a situation, Xena, Robin Hood and Jackie Chan are in town"-something of the sorts.

Great Movie, 3D Could Have Been Better
Posted by: OdinsEye from: New Jersey on
Thor is a phenomenal movie, Marvel's best movie to date. The majestic and grandeur of Asgard is obvious. The cast is superb with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. I have watched both the 2D and 3D versions. The 2D is flawless. The 3D has some great moments and some not so great effects (I probably am being kind here). The 3D could have been better, should have been better. Most of the deleted scenes would have made movie that already is great even better.
I highly recommend this movie. With regard to the 3D, it comes down to preference.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

Thor is an exquisite film. I thought it was smart, well written, visually stunning, very well directed, and struck just the right tone for the material. There’s really no other movie you can compare this one too. It’s part psychodrama that explores the depth of human relationships but still delivers great action. It also gives us a human element to which most anyone should be able to relate. This movie really is exceptional. From the epic opening set on Asgard, to the awesome battle with the Destroyer back on Earth, Thor is filled with plenty of action, a compelling story and some superb direction from Branagh. Yes, I said superb. Everything I wanted in a film such as this and, actually, quite a bit more.

THOR IS PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by: IRONMAN1567 from: CHI-TOWN on
At first when I saw the trailer of THOR I thought, "im not going to see this movie", but later it started pulling me in with its plot which really got me thinking a lot about this movie. When I heard Anthony Hopkins was playing ODIN well there was no one better for the job. Chris Hemsworth takes THOR and brings him to life with his brilliant acting.Natalie Portman as JANE FOSTER is the HOTTEST 'AVENGERS' girlfriend ever, well done. I saw THOR in 3D in theathers but got it on 2D Blu-Ray because I don't feel like watching it in 3D again. I can't wait to see THOR in 'THE AVENGERS", even thought IRON MAN is my favorite AVENGER. I have IRON MAN 1 and 2, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, and THOR, just need CAPTAIN AMERICA which comes out on October 25. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE AVENGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good movie. Comes up short in 3D.
Posted by: Deathmagnetik from: SLC on
I was a little suprised when I finally watched Thor in 3D. I'm not a comic junkie so I wasn't expecting much out of the plot or the characters. As with 90% of the films available in 3D, I'm mainly looking for the 3D experience. Thor, as a movie experience, actually turned out to be pretty enjoyable for me. Unfortunately, the 3D aspect had the opposite effect. I'm suprised at how little of a presence 3D effects had in this movie, considering how much of it was made with CG. About 70% of the movie has that extra sense of depth, but there are only a few really good 3D moments.
All in all, I feel Thor is one of the better superhero movies made by Marvel. Even though they should have done more with 3D, I will still watch it again.

Excellent movie for all!

The cast was wonderful for this movie. The story kept you interested from start to finish. Plus seeing an action movie without the nudity scenes was great.
