Movie Review: Thor – Keeps You Entertained for the Most Part

The movie Thor is based on the Marvel comic series character with the same name. It is a story of Thor, who is the God of Thunder. The movie is fun filled and it is aimed at audience who are under mid twenties. Thor is directed by Kenneth Branagh and is a good one-timer. The movie revolves around the supernatural territory Asgard and the earth.

The king of Asgard, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) instigates the Frost Giants who can freeze everything into ice for a war. The Frost giants start transforming everything on earth into ice to gain complete power over earth. Odin wins the war against the Frost Giants and protects the earth. He keeps the Frost Giants under his control by capturing their power. When Odin decides to declare his son Thor as the king of Asgard, the giants successfully manage to break open the secret chamber and redeem their power. This makes short-tempered Thor angry. Thor furtively attacks the Frost giants with the intention of ending their race without the knowledge of Odin.

Thor’s actions reignite the old war between the giants and the people of Asgard. Odin punishes Thor for his reckless action so that he realises what it takes to become a king. The plot is clichéd and hence the movie does not create the impact that it has to. Though visually captivating, the movie is more of a fairy tale rather than a science fiction that it was supposed to be. There are very few twists in the movie, which makes the plot predictable.

When Thor comes to Earth, he is dressed in jeans and t-shirts unlike the others from Asgard. Thor also goes to a pub and falls in love with Natalie Portman, who is a scientist. This makes the movie very illogical and similar to other American romantic movies.

The movie scores a good 3.5 out of 5.
