Thor (PG-13, 2011)

(PG-13: 2011)
Director: Kenneth Branagh; Starring: Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Clark Gregg as
Agent Coulson, and many more.

Based on the Ragnarok mythology, the 2011 American Superhero film “Thor” is based on the Marvel comic book character of the same name. The film starts out in 965 CE with Odin, the King of Asgard, waging war against the Frost Giants of Jotunheim and their leader Laufey for the prevention of them conquering the nine realms, beginning with Earth. Odin’s soldiers defeat the Frost Giants and sieze the source of their magical power – the Casket of Ancient Winters. Just as Odin’s son Thor is about to take the throne, the Frost Giants break into Asgard and try to steal the casket back. This infuriates Thor, and against his father’s orders, travels to Jotunheim to confront Laufey and experiences battle with them, breaking the standstill that Odin worked so hard to establish. Odin is angered with his irresponsibility and wants him to learn what it is like not to have Godly powers or his hammer. However, his evil bother Loki discovers he really is Laufey’s son, kills off Odin his false father, and tries to take the throne for the Ice Giants as the new king of Asgard. He lands in New Mexico where he is found by the astrophysicist Jane Foster, her assistant Darcy Lewis, and mentor Dr. Erik Selvig. The government gets attracted to the wormhole through which Thor travelled to reach Earth and the men in black are soon taking all of Jane’s team’s data. Thor and Jane begin to develop a romance as she helps him get back his hammer and deal with becoming human. The Warriors Three find out what is happening and go to retrieve Thor, after which Loki sends the Destroyer to pursue and kill Thor. Battle on Earth, Thor eventually gets his hammer back, and and defeats the Destroyer. They then return to confront Loki and stop his plan. Odin wasn’t killed and awakens, repairs things with his son Thor, and Thor misses Jane. Thor 2 is planned for July of 2013. I found the film riddled with mythology, in-depth interpersonal dynamics of the Gods and their family relationships, and modern day implementation of ancient myths regarding Thor. High action, emotional appeal, great special effects, and good story line. The 3D gave it a high class edge. Review by Leaf McGowan. Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5. Viewed 4/23/11.
