"Thor" by Yojimbo

The son of Odin is banished to Earth after provoking war with a neighbouring realm and finds he must prove himself worthy in order to return to Asgard to prevent his brother from usurping their father and claiming the crown for himself. The Iron Man franchise, together with Avengers Assemble have proven that Marvel comics can provide a platform for some highly entertaining cinema that can appeal to a wide age range. Thor unfortunately is a throwback to the days of the preposterous man-in-tights-grows-as-a-person morality tale. Thor himself is a bit like a rubbish Superman who talks in cod Shakespearian prose like a refugee from 300, with his half-arsed band of merry men in tow to provide some sub-Lord Of The Rings CGI infested action. The scenes in Asgard are painfully pompous and dull, w...

Thor (2011)

For those unfamiliar with Norse mythology, Thor is the God of Thunder who wields the powerful war-hammer forged out of a dying star and could only be held by a worthy warrior. He is from the mystical realm of Asgard, son of Wise King Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and next in line for the throne, but the Prince of Asgard is stripped of his powers and exiled to the Earth after an "incident" which enrages his father to learn a lesson about humility. While on Earth he meets three scientists (Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, and Stellan Skarsgard) who are trying to find out who and what he is. There's poignancy when Thor finds his hammer, Mjolnir, stuck in a rock, and realizes he could not pick it up even with all his might.

Meanwhile back on his planet, Thor's brother Loki(Tom Hiddleston) finds ab...

A pleasant surprise

"Thor" is the successor of the throne of Asgard, but because of his arrogance and greediness, his father exiled him to the planet Earth and only can return to their world when he learned how a real king should act.

I don't know why I did underestimate this film, first teaser I saw of this film turned me off to the extent. I thought it would be just another wasted highly-budgeted film. BUT NOW, I AM COMPLETELY WRONG. This film is not bad at all. What bothered me while watching this movie is the costume and the set, it appeared very funny to me, yeah, that's all. The rest are fine, I love to see Natalie Portman, I think Chris Hemsworth done it well, but the character I love most is Loki (Tom Hiddleston). First time he appears on the film, you can already extract his character, the...

The Mighty Thor?

Thor accomplishes what it sets out to do: it combines some impressive CGI with some adrenaline-fueled action and manages to mix in a bit of Norse mythology 101 and sets up yet another hero to add to The Avengers. Yet, for all it's mighty Thor, hammer-swinging action, in the end, it felt like a typical summer popcorn flick with a bigger budget.

First - what they got right: Kenneth Branagh is known for bringing Shakespearean dramas to the big screen, so he seems like a strange choice to direct a big-budge super hero summer film. Yet, he manages to balance out the action with just the right touch of said drama - plus, Anthony Hopkins is on hand to give a certain weight to film, and act as the perfect Deus Ex Machina when things are going south for our heroes.

Second - The films looks g...
