Thor-Review

                Who dares to challenge the power of Thor, the god of Thunder? Odin (Anthony Hopkins), Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) father does when he casts out Thor from planet Asgod. Thor is to live on Earth until he can learn to control his destructive behavior, which is the cause of war started against the frost giants (Asgod’s ally turned enemy). Once Thor has landed on Earth, he runs into a scientist named Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and after his anger subsides, he brings to fall for her. With pressing news from his brother, Loki (Tome Hiddleston), Thor comes to terms that he will remain on Earth for the remainder of his days. Until his three combat warriors and best friends inform him that his family and home is in danger and that he must find a way to obtain his power source (Thor’s hammer) and return to Asgod. Will he return before it’s too late? Or will he leave the task to his friends and remain on Earth with Jane?

 

 Review:

                I’m pretty sure I’m going to be alone in this, but oh well. I really didn’t like this film at all. I thought the film was too focused on eye candy from Chris and Natalie and heavily relied on special effects during the action scenes. I thought the dialogue was dry and boring as well as the acting. Every scene was too predictable because I knew what was going to happen next throughout the entire film. Where’s the mystery? I did guess that I wouldn’t like the movie after viewing the previews but I watched it, just like most, because Hemsworth is hot. All in all, I will not see this film again.

    Also another reason whay I didn’t like this film is beacause Jane’s and Thor relationship wasn’t believable. I mean here is Jane, a devoted scientist whose mission in life is a discovery and proof of her current research, falls for a guy with his shirt off. Thor, a hot headed battle driven warrior is suddenly turned into caring bunny within what a day. So unbelievable and lame.
