It's not great by any means, but it's a pretty good movie that didn't leave me filled with regret for investing time in it.
This movie feels like it was made purely to piss off people who want good shows
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
I enjoyed this when it came out and was interested to see if it stood the test of the me and I'm glad to say it did.
If anything I appreciated the humour more which brings a different side to the character of Thor which would lad have been pretty one dimensional otherwise.
Very underrated Marvel movie.
Kenneth Branagh is a good director, but the acclaimed thespian probably wasn't the best choice to direct Marvel's 'Thor'. His choice to have almost every single shot on a canted angle is extremely annoying and it gives the film a monotonous feeling. If every shot is tilted, none of them are. The bland screenplay and characters don't help either, as they are the thing that really makes this film boring. The attempts at humour fall flat, yet the film is unintentionally funny on several occasions due to how some serious moments are over-done to the point of feeling parody-like. Saying that, the film isn't terrible; there are some enjoyable action sequences, the score by Patrick Doyle is pretty catchy and the overall message of the film is a good one, even if it is a bit poorly handled. 5/10
As far as I was concerned, Thor was one of the less well-received MCU movies. Little did I know, this movie is actually quite enjoyable. Yes, the second one is a different story, but this is a pretty stellar superhero movie. Natalie Portman and Kat Dennings have great chemistry and really make the movie better. Chris Hemsworth isn't my favourite actor but he does do a pretty good job in his role. The real show-stealer, though, is Tom Hiddleston. He is absolutely perfect in his role as Loki and really makes the movie better than it actually is. The humour and action is enough to solidify itself as a good superhero movie without quite reaching Iron Man status. Rating: 7.5/10
It remains only to marvel at the company Marvel, which gives an impressive amount of money for the implementation of films on their comic books under the guidance of "newcomers" in the genre of "summer blockbuster." Four years ago they did this with John Favreau, who previously filmed family comedies and yet surprised many with his "Iron Man". Now, the honored actor and director of the dramatic cinema and theater Kenneth Brana demonstrated miracles by taking off a large-scale fantasy comics epic.ActorsChris HamsworthTaking advantage of the tested scheme (to take on the role of the protagonist of a little-known actor and surround him with "loud names"), Brana did not lose. Chris Hamsworth is the perfect Thor! Possessing not only impressive physical training and memorable appearance, Hamsworth was able to convey the power and emotions of this character. In some places it is threatening, in places it's funny when it's necessary to be gallant. Yes, and in general, throughout the whole movie you penetrate to the Torah sympathy and you empathize with it.Natalie PortmanAs always, she is charming and charming. The first falls on the Torah and runs after him all the remaining time :)Anthony HopkinsWorthy performance of a worthy role. The first experience of Hopkins in the film kinomics was a success.Tom HiddlestonSly, a jealous manipulator. Another one hundred percent hit in the role!Jamie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Joshua Dallos, Tadanobu Asana and Idris ElbaWell-written characters, which should still be given a little more time, because each is interesting in its own way.
ActionIt is many, it is diverse, large-scale, beautiful, impressive and fascinating. The best episode is the battle of the top five warriors with the Ice Giants and a huge monster.Special EffectsLooking at the trailers it seemed that the "Thor" would not be particularly pleased with the special effects, for both the monster's drawing and the Torah's hammer in action were not so impressive. But fortunately, the effects brought to shine and you can with full confidence to say that the "Torah" is the most grandiose special effects from all the films Marvel.LocationsAh, this Asgard! He is beautiful! Incredibly beautiful and the viewer is not satisfied with the monotonous views of the city. In each of Asgard's places shown, there is something unusual and unique. And the more interesting are the transitions from the deserted quiet town of New Mexico to the majestic palaces and structures of Asgard throughout the film.MusicPatrick Doyle has proved since the time of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" that he is an excellent composer, skillfully combining different musical styles. The "Torah" is mostly dominated by pathos and heroic music, but in times of dramatic moments, sad compositions play.HumorHumor in the film is not as much as we would like. But he is funny and in no way slips into jokes below the belt. True, it would have been more ridiculous to beat the scenes of "God Tor in the modern world among ordinary people."PlotEnough fun and interesting without obvious stupidities and sagging. Although Torah's "rebirth" was worth paying more attention.SurprisesIn the film, a lot of Easter eggs for fans and attentive viewers. Starting from the most obvious (mentioning the Hulk and the Iron Man), ending with the hidden ones (Falcon eye). And at the end of the final credits, the audience expects another bridge to the upcoming "Avengers".Undoubtedly, the most beautiful and grandiose film Marvel. Excellent entertaining summer movie. Satisfied should remain both the audience and the fans. I want to wish the studio to continue making films about my superheroes with the same love and warmth.
