Thor (The Motion Picture)

I saw Thor Friday afternoon and without giving anything away, I have to say - I enjoyed it!

I'd put it on par with the first Iron Man movie - entertaining, lots of humor and good action sequences, perfectly cast (the guy who plays Loki is spot on), great effects and a well-constructed story. A couple of good, yee-haw moments in there.

There are a few minor stumbles in the story, but they're easy to forgive - Chris Hemsworth is perfect as Thor, both as the hot-head and the more likeable hero he becomes. He and Natalie Portman have good chemistry, too.

There are a few Easter Eggs in there for long-time readers, and I enjoyed the Warriors Three, Sif and Heimdall, though their parts were relatively small. Anthony Hopkins is spot on as Odin.

Needless to say, don't leave until after the credits - there's an interesting sequence to catch.

Highly Recommended!

Len, thanks for the link! It's shaping up to be a great couple of years for comics fans at the movies!
