Of all the folks in long underwear to be tapped for superhero films, Thor would seem to be the most problematic to properly pull off. (Hypothetical Hollywood conversation: "A guy in a tricked-out, easily merchandisable metal suit? Great! An Asgardian God of Thunder who says stuff like thee and thou? Um, is Moon Knight available?") Thankfully, the resulting film does its source material rather proud, via a committed cast and an approach that doesn't shy away from the over-the-top superheroics. When you're dealing with a flying guy wielding a huge hammer, gritty realism can be overrated, really. Blending elements from the celebrated comic arcs by Walter Simonson and J. Michael Straczynski, the story follows the headstrong Thunder God (Chris Hemsworth) as he is banished to Earth and stripped of his powers by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) after inadvertently starting a war with a planet of ticked-off Frost Giants. As his traitorous brother Loki (the terrific Tom Hiddleston) schemes in the wings, Thor must redeem himself and save the universe, with the aid of a beautiful scientist (Natalie Portman). Although director Kenneth Branagh certainly doesn't skimp on the in-jokes and fan-pleasing continuity references (be prepared to stick around after the credits, Marvel fans), his film distinguishes itself by adopting a larger-than-life cosmic Shakespearean air that sets itself apart from both the cerebral, grounded style made fashionable by The Dark Knight and the loose-limbed Rat Packish vibe of the Iron Man series. Glorying in the absolute unreality of its premise, Branagh's film is a swooping, Jack Kirby-inspired saga that brings the big-budget grins on a consistent basis, as well as tying in with the superhero battle royale The Avengers.
Editor's Note
In this action film from Marvel, Thor, the son of Norse god Odin, watches over both mortals and immortals. Thor will also reign in Marvel's upcoming THE AVENGERS.

Expert Review Thor - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 9/13/2011 4:00 AM
Kenneth Branagh's Thor, a handsomely mounted and sufficiently majestic introduction to Marvel Comics' God of Thunder, belongs in the first slot but comes with a caveat that bears mentioning. For while Branagh's picture dutifully lays out the mythological backstory of Odin's arrogant, hammer-wielding son, Thor also serves as yet another appetizer one must consume before bellying up to the superhero smorgasbord that will be Joss Whedon's The Avengers, and this "placeholder" status applied to Thor is both a blessing and a curse....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Los Angeles Times
"Anchored by a solid performance by Hopkins, who has said the story energized him, the Asgard sections are THOR's most substantial..." 05/06/2011

USA Today
"Under Kenneth Branagh's direction, THOR has eye-popping special effects, strong performances and, perhaps most notably, 3-D technology put to good use." 05/06/2011

Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Branagh -- poised for a career comeback with this hybrid of Shakespearean style and summer spectacle -- offers a handsomely-mounted big-screen interpretation of the God of Thunder by way of Marvel Comics..." 05/03/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"It restores the innocence of big-budget superhero mythmaking....[THOR] has a stirring emotional core as well." -- Grade: A- 05/13/2011

Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "Directed by noted Shakespearean Kenneth Branagh with a class-act grasp of how action works best when it defines character....THOR comes on like thunder, delivering epic fireworks..." 05/27/2011

Movieline
"[A] magnificent thunderclap of a movie....The picture is grand in the Wagnerian sense, an opus orchestrated by a wild man wielding a movie camera instead of a baton." 05/05/2011

Sight and Sound
"Chris Hemsworth makes an imposing, good-humoured Thor..." 07/01/2011

Wall Street Journal
"Mr. Hemsworth is a commanding physical presence, and a likable one whenever he's given a chance..." 06/01/2012
