Mini Movie Review- Thor
One of the things I want to do on my blog is include movie reviews, book reviews and such. Today I am going to post on THOR! I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible.
Before I heard about the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, I hadn't really planned on seeing this. The trailers made it look really cheesy, and I don't think they gave the movie the proper justice it deserves.
To start off Chris Hemsworth, the actor that played Thor was absolutely perfect for the role. I've heard that Kenneth Branagh was brought in to direct because of his role in Shakespeare plays. It's a good thing too, because the things that Thor said could have come out ridiculous.
The special effects were pretty awesome. Asgard is really picturesque, sometimes I wanted the movie to freeze so that I could look at all the little details. The fight scenes were fun, Thor's hammer was pretty sweet too.
That said there are some problems in this movie. I think Jane (Natalie Portman) didn't feel fleshed out as a love interest. I didn't see any reason for her to like Thor besides him being proof that her science is correct, and lust.
The villain was solid, not spectacular. All in all a very fun popcorn movie.
I give it 4/5 Thor Hammers! Go check it out!
