Directed by Kenneth Branagh. Starring Kat Dennings, Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins.
From the manufacturer
Kenneth Branagh directs this fantasy superhero adventure based on the Marvel comics character, which in turn is based on the ancient myth of Norse God of Thunder, Thor. Moving between present day Earth and the fantastic realm of Asgard, the film tells the story of the Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior god whose reckless actions rekindle an ancient feud among the deities. As a punishment, Thor is cast out of Asgard and forced to live on Earth among humankind. There, he falls in love with scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and, as the darkest forces of Asgard are sent to invade Earth, eventually learns what it means to be a real hero.

A common complaint of Marvel 3D films when converted from 2D [in the film process] to a 3D film - is that the subsequent film is often too dark.
It's all too evident with this release [one of Marvel's 1st 3D releases] - the film is dark and it only passably adequate as a 3D release, with scenes that you would think would be excellent in 3D actually being only vaguely 3-dimensional. Disappointing considering some of the other excellent Marvel 3D releases; [Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers Assemble, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Guardian of the Galaxy Vol 2 - being 3D highlights.]
That the proverbial egg did not land all over Marvel's face is down in large part to the choice of Kenneth Branagh as director. He wisely brings the god of thunder down to earth - in more ways than one. Pulling off great character development (Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki both excel), balancing (and holding our interest in) multiple worlds, and even throwing in some great slapstick humour, "Thor" succeeds in multiple ways that few would have expected.
The film drags a little after the halfway point but delivers in a powerful (and emotional) finale, the best conclusion to a Marvel movie in the series to this point.
Opinion remains divided on Natalie Portman's performance, but there's no doubting the chemistry between her and Hemsworth, particularly in their first few scenes.
All in all, there's a lot to enjoy here, and proof aplenty that Marvel could take some risks that would more than pay off.
I've always been a fan of mythological games and series, so Thor really appeals when Marvel goes to town bringing Norse mythology to the big screen with Odin and Loki. This first outing for Thor, brings a fairly childish prince through eye opening experiences as his mistakes nearly cost him universal peace.
The journey eventually brings him to Midgard (Earth) where he starts to interact with the Human Race, and learns that life isn't all he thought back in the Palace of Asgard (his homeworld). Thor is forced to think and act with more than just his godly hammer in order to defeat an enemy that knows him as well as himself.
With a strong cast, brilliant story and awesome effects, it is no wonder that Thor was a continuing driving force in the MCU storyline and had continuing success with the Thor sequels.
However, aside from the spoiled brat bits by Thor near the beginning; I did really enjoy it. Very witty in places, lots of action.
Brat becomes humble was done with humour, displayed desperation, resignation and redemption.
Enjoyed watching it, no regrets.
Helpful to have seen Ironman first but not essential, will just miss a few insider jokes.
