Thor 6/10 - A decent and forgettable movie. I felt as though the writers couldn’t come up with a worthy villain for Thor to fight, so all they could think of was to strip him of his powers for three quarters of the movie. It’s not terrible writing, but it just made the whole thing boring to me.
There was some decent action at the beginning with the Ice Giants, but it was really dark and everything was moving way too fast (and I was watching on a big hd tv in hd quality).
Natalie Portman’s acting was cringe-worthy. The love story they shoved into the middle of the movie seemed forced and unrealistic. Kat Dennings couldn’t possibly be less funny or a worse choice as a comedy relief character. She felt very tacked-on.
The whole movie felt extremely rushed. Thor learned his lesson way too fast for how dumb and crass he’s supposed to be. Also, who couldn’t predict every single thing that happened?
Other than all that, Anthony Hopkins was great and Chris Hemsworth was pretty good. I enjoyed the scenes with the gatekeeper. Stellan Skarsgard was good and the actor that played Loki was very good. There are a couple of action parts that were really cool, but they were very very short.
The amount of good and bad in this movie would be okay if this were something of an origin story, but it really isn’t. It was enjoyable enough, but I wouldn’t want to own it or watch it again.
