Ileana’s Movie Review: Thor


Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins

Summary: Thor (Hemsworth) is the arrogant Norse god of thunder. After he crosses his father Odin (Hopkins), he is stripped of his powers and banished to Earth. There he meets a scientist named Jane (Portman) with whom he shares an instant connection which humbles him. Meanwhile back in Asgard, Thor’s evil brother Loki (Hiddleston) is plotting to take over the throne. When Thor learns of his brother’s treachery, he finds a way to return to Asgard to set things right.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the latest installment from the Marvel Avengers series does not disappoint. Newcomer Chris Hemsworth embodies the character of Thor perfectly, and what a body it is. I guarantee every woman in that theater was drooling as much as I was. Hemsworth pulls off Thor’s arrogance with a certain sweet charm that makes him pretty irresistible. Poor Natalie Portman didn’t stand a chance.

All kidding aside, this movie is really well made. From the costumes, to the landscapes and the special effects, it was a really fun cinematic experience. All of the actors played their parts perfectly, especially Tom Hiddleston who plays Loki. Loki was probably the trickiest character to cast since he has to be deceitful yet endearing so you can believe his lies. I for one can’t wait for the Avengers movie in 2012, so I can catch another glimpse of my favorite god of thunder.

Trivia: Chris Hemsworth trained for six months and put on 30 lbs. of muscle for this role. He gained so much muscle that when he put on his costume for the first time it was too small and cut off his circulation.
Rated: PG-13 – For sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence
Grade: A
