Over the weekend I saw the highly anticipated movie from Marvel Studios, Thor. It stars Chris Hensworth who does quite a good job of portraying the classic comic book character Thor. The general plot is that the king to be, Thor is cast out of the Realm of Asgard by his father who is the current king of the realm, for his obsessive ignorance. Thor winds up on earth along with his Hammer, which if he is able to grasp will return his powers. The problem is that the hammer is firmly stuck in the ground, and no one can remove it. The movie basically consists of Thor trying to figure out how to get this Hammer out of the ground and retain his powers, all the while the film frequently cuts back to Asgard, where the villain to the upcoming Avengers movie is indirectly being revealed. From a technical standpoint, this movie does really impress. Unfortunately the scenes in Asgard do come across as rather corny and don't really interest you in Thor's back story in this Alternate realm. The story on a whole is a little bland, as I mentioned before it mostly consists of many people fighting to get this hammer. Thor does end up developing a love interest with a scientist on earth, who is played by Natalie Portman. They attempted to add a deeper element to the story with the Asgard aspect of the film, but honestly it comes across as rather uninteresting. My other gripe with this movie is that you really didn't get to see much of Thor actually in Action, due to the fact that he is without his hammer for most of the movie. From a technical standpoint, this movie is rather stunning. The scenes in Asgard, albeit boring, were very pretty to look at, and the action scenes are quite amazing, and thrilling. All and all Thor was a decent movie that had exciting action and an ok story, It also gives a little back story to the upcoming Avengers movie. Overall I give it 7/10.
