“Thor” Movie Review
(Lori: Loves mythology, and (?) Chris Hemsworth)
(Mike: Confusing visual experience, Portman rocks)
Arrogant and impetuous, the young Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is ready to fight at the drop of a hat. After invading another realm itching for a fight, Dad saves him (and his friends) then banishes his ass to Earth where he meets scientist Natalie Portman (as Jane Foster), and her team (Stellan Skarsgard (as Erik Selvig) and Kat Dennings (as Darcy Lewis).
An evil brother, aging father, and loyal gatekeeper keep things interesting at home while Thor tries to grab his hammer on Earth.
Visual treat, but, if you have not followed the Marvel comic books, or care a whole lot about myths / legends of Thor, like Lori does, it is confusing.
I liked the connections to Iron Man…very cool, and some really funny lines, mostly delivered by Darcy (“They took my iPod….I had 40 songs on it”).
There will be a sequel…possibly “The Avengers” due out in 2012.
