“Thor” is predictable but has good special effects/cinematography and light funny moments that make it rather entertaining.

Awesome movie! Not a lot of violence, hardly any at all. I would not recommend it for younger kids. It was AMAZING! Really worth your watch! I love these movies!!!

I love Thor movies! The plots are interesting. Thor: The Dark world is the sequel, and I just watched it. It was more interesting than Thor. Overall, Thor movies are great!

Very entertaining, I like it better than the Iron Man or Captain America movies, can't wait to see the sequel!

Maybe its because I'm not familiar with the comic, but I found this movie bland, lame, and pretty darn awful. If Thor, the main character, was supposed to have any character development, it was very poorly developed. Waste of time.

A nice change from other superhero movies. Good script, special effects and very good choice of actors.

Cute movie and very entertaining but it wasn't all that deep compared to, say, Captain America or the Iron Man movies (the live action ones of course) and wasn't as entertaining as the Avengers movie. Granted I did watch all the movies out of order from release date (watched Avengers first even though I didn't know any of the characters lol, then watched Iron Man 1-3, Captain America, Thor, then rewatched Avengers now that I actually KNOW the characters...). It was entertaining, but Thor's character was kind of difficult to relate to and far too simple. Funnily enough I ended up liking Loki the best (his struggles were a little under developed but it made more sense and made him a pitiable character), and Natalie Portman's amazing acting (I didn't even know she was in there lol) ended up making Jane Foster a cooler character than she really is. Still, the guy who plays Thor is REALLY good looking! Talk about a perfect viking-like physique and features to play Thor...

The Asgardian warriors defeat the Frost Giants and seize the source of their power, the Casket of Ancient Winters.

Against Odin's order, Thor travels to Jotunheim to confront Laufey, accompanied by his brother Loki, childhood friend Sif and the Warriors Three: Volstagg, Fandral and Hogun. A battle ensues until Odin intervenes to save the Asgardians, destroying the fragile truce between the two races. For Thor's arrogance, Odin strips his son of his godly power and exiles him to Earth as a mortal, accompanied by his hammer Mjolnir (the source of his power) now protected by an enchantment to allow only the worthy to wield it.

Agent Coulson: [interrogating Thor] It's not easy to do what you did. You made my men, some of the most highly trained professionals in the world look like a bunch of minimum-wage mall cops. In my experience, it takes someone who's received similar training to do what you did to them. Why don't you tell me where you received that training? Afghanistan, Chechnya? No, you strike me more as the soldier of fortune type. Who are you?
