For the uninitiated, that's the Thor. God of thunder from the Norse pantheon. Son of Odin. And in comics oft sent to Earth to learn humility in a human alter ego and occasionally do battle with duplicitious sibling Loki.

And be a member of superhero team the Avengers.

As we'll see next year...

In the meantime, Thor, like Iron Man did three years ago, takes the character and gives him an origin movie.

Director Kenneth Branagh tackles the problem of how to mix Norse gods and real world on screen by remembering Clarke's first law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Thus the norse gods living in Asgard here are basically super advanced aliens who once came to Earth long ago to do battle with the Frost Giants - nasty and not quite so advanced aliens - when they attacked tenth century Norway.

Their worlds are connected by a shimmering bridge which is guarded by a gatekeeper. A bridge that in our technology might also be referred to as a stargate or a wormhole.

But that's all exposition we get after a brief opening when astrophysicist Jane Foster and two friends are investigating strange readings in the sky and promptly knock down a man who comes out of nowhere.

Jumping back to the exposition shows that this is Thor. And that he and his brother Loki were raised by father Odin who hasn't been to war since he beat the frost giants. And that Thor is a bit more impetuous and up for a fight than Loki is.

When the opportunity for that comes going against his fathers wishes seem him banished to Earth, and his hammer Mjolnir dropped into the desert [what you saw in that post credits scene in Iron Man Two].

Can Jane and her friends help Thor in his quest to get home?

Format: Blu-ray
Long ago Odin (Anthony Hopkins) led Asgard to victory against the Jotunheim Frost Giants and captured the source of their power, the Casket of Ancient Warriors. Over a thousand years later, Odin is about to crown his son, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as King of Asgard, but the coronation ceremony is interrupted when the Front Giants find a way into the weapons vault and try to steal back the Casket. Fortunately, it wasn’t stolen as the giants fell before they could take it. Wanting to make an example of them, Thor and some of his loyal companions travel to Jotunheim against his father’s wishes and start a war with the giants. Odin rescues them but not without grave consequences: upon returning to Asgard, Thor is banished to Earth for his actions, powerless and alone. Only his hammer, Mjolnir, is sent with him, but now with an enchantment that only the worthy can wield it—and Thor is not.

On Earth, Thor meets Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), an astrophysicist who was there along with her mentor, Dr. Erik Selvig, the night Thor came through the wormhole.

Meanwhile, Thor’s brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), finds out that his own heritage is not what he was told and, upon finding out his true origin, seeks to ensure his brother never returns to Asgard so he could become the king instead.

While on Earth, Thor must learn what it means to be humble, care for others, and thus earn his place as the proper king of Asgard, all in time to stop his brother from leading the Frost Giants into Asgard and destroying Odin’s kingdom.

This flick was Marvel’s fourth film in its Phase One plan leading up to The Avengers.

I love this movie.

Positive.
Chris Hensworth & Tom Hiddleson are superb playing the two feuding brothers Thor & Loki bringing real drama to their roles.
Anthony Hopkins is exellent as always in a supporting role of Odin, Thor & Loki father.
Frost Giants are scary race adding menace to the drama.
Great emotional story,Superb direction & awesome action scenes.

Negatives.
Very few the ending loses a bit of epic,scope compared to the movies opening Battle sequence.
Renni Russo is underused as Thor & Loki mother.

Review.
Chris Hemsworth, Kit Hunter in Home & Away playing the norse god of thunder?,Can this be true??, Well yes it is & he's outstanding in the role of Thor showing bravery but who's immature arrogance of always being ready for a fight is about to be crowned king but his maturity to rule as king brings doubt by his father Odin.

When a attempt by the Frost Giants to steal a ancient artefact power source is thwarted, Thor takes it upon himself to go to the Frost Giants planet & confront the inhabitants thus could start a new war.

When the Frost Giants mock Thor & his threats he cause a battle to erupt between himself,his friends & the Frost Giants.

Odin intervenes stopping the battle but the damage is done,With a new war emerging Odin in a rage of disappointment banishes his son Thor to earth stripping him of his armour & his Hammer until he learns lessons in humility.

The Hammer becomes trapped in a rock people hear of this & becomes a popular attraction yet nobody able to remove the hammer.

Thor is found by Jane Foster & friends whom is hit by her car is taken to hospital.
