I thought 'Thor' was incredibly entertaining. The acting was great; Hemsworth was beyond believable in his role of 'Thor'. He never ever broke character and in some scenes was actually quite comical. Natalie Portman, who plays Jane, was absolutely delightful. Although her role was fairly minor she exuded beauty and grace in every shot and portrayed the gorgeous nerd effortlessly. Tom Hiddleston, who portrays Thor's brother Loki, delivered a decent performance. Hiddleston wasn't intimidating or threatening at all. His character should've been stronger and his performance was rather weak. Stellan Skarsgard portrays Erik Selvig, the brilliant mentor to Jane. He was intelligent and worldly. He protected Jane as if she was his daughter, especially when they experience their first encounter with Thor, which made watching their bond all the more enjoyable.
The storyline was unfortunately overdone. It seems as though a lot of comic book movies have similar plots and characters. I don't know much about the stories of 'Thor' but I was hoping for more. It was compelling and rich with good actors and nice shots by Branagh, but I would like a little difference in plot. I liked that he was banished from Asgard and had to learn how it feels to be a human without powers. Watching Thor be his high and mighty self in the middle of New Mexico was hilarious. He called Jane's trailer her 'chambers' and when he liked a cup of coffee instead of asking he throws the mug on the floor and declares “This is delicious! I'll have another!” certain little subtleties made it all the more interesting and amusing.
Overall, I think 'Thor' was awesome. I highly recommend it to comic book lovers, people who love action-packed films with comedy and heart built into it. Also, make sure you stay after the credits for a short clip!! If you have seen 'Thor' please share your thoughts and opinions without giving too much away!!!
