Product Description

Product Description

Synopsis: The epic adventure THOR spans the Marvel universe from present-day Earth to the cosmic realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As a result, Thor is banished to Earth where he is forced to live among humans. When the most dangerous villain of his world sends its darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero. Bonus Features: * Commentary: - Commentary by director Kenneth Branagh * Other: - Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant HD * Other: - Featurettes HD * Other: - Road to the Avengers HD * Other: - 11 Deleted Scenes with optional commentary HD * Trailers: Trailers HD

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. --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is about to become King of Asgard, but during his coronation the Frost Giants try to raid the royal vault. Although they fail, he takes it upon himself to lead an assualt against them and in so doing declares war upon them. For his arrogance and foolishness he is stripped of his powers and banished to Earth.

Chris Hemsworth is an excellent choice as Thor and Natalie Portman does a great job as Jane Foster. Tom Hiddleton does a great job as the treachorous Loki who takes advantage of Thor's situation to seize the throne.

The special effects are up to the standards you expect from a Marvel movie, but in the end it is the fantastic acting that saves an otherwise drab film.

Another must have for your Marvel collection.

Though Chris Hemsworth does a fun, humorous take on the character of Thor--and he manages to pull of the thunder god's bravado--this movie bears only a passing resemblance to Jack Kirby's creation. The filmmakers made a serious mistake when they removed the Donald Blake persona out of the equation; it was the only thing that grounded the character and made him relatable. It would have been a great way to introduce the character, watching him discover who and what he truly was. Striking that gnarled stick against the cave wall and transforming into Thor would have been an awesome cinematic moment. As it was, the name Donald Blake was reduced to a gag "cameo." I would have expected something more grand and Shakespearean from director Kenneth Branagh. The ice giant fight is rendered less epic by having it take place in the dark, and the turning point battle takes place in a town that is five blocks square, so overall the film is rendered fairly underwhelming.

Despite this, the film has some charm and heart to it, which is more important than spectacle anyway. Tom Hiddleston gives an engaging performance as Loki, and Hopkins' Odin carries a surprising amount of gravitas, but Natalie Portman is fairly bland as Jane Foster (but as the character's pretty bland in the comics, I guess that's accurate enough). And if you are going to turn Foster from a nurse to a physicist, then her scientist sidekicks are pretty irrelevant. This movie, along with Captain America: The First Avenger, are all you really need to watch as a precursor to the Avengers movie that followed--Thor introduces Loki and Captain America's plot involves the cosmic cube (aka "the tesseract").

wow it looks like 2011 will be the year that restores my faith in pg-13 super hero movies/ i usually like my violence to be shown in full out rated r mayhem but aparently this year directors are figuring out how to make action movies for 'everyone'. first x-men first class and now thor. one thing i really liked about this movie is that the enemies are these crazy, entirly cgi creatures that somehow dont come off as looking stupid because of over cgi, something lots of directors need to take note of. Because the cgi is done right the action scenes look beutifully epic and i was just waiting for each battle to erupt. Any scene with natalie portman could have been scrapped but i guess i movie isnt a movie without a storyline so we can keep that in there to give some sort of reasoning to the real girth of this movie, the action! now im looking forward to captain america and green lantern.

1 star because $79 is ridiculous. The second one is only 25. No other marvel movie comes close to this price and i dont see the justification for it. Give me a realistic price and then I'll leave a realistic review

Natalie Portman starts out the film as an astrophysicist in the New Mexico desert. There appears to be some kind of UFO crash, as apparently aliens have the ability to fly all over the planet without crashing, except New Mexico. The movie then flashes back to 985 AD in a heavily CG background as Asgard, led by Odin, aka Anthony Hopkins, is fighting the frost giants, who look like blue skinned versions of Freddie Kruger. They end up with a truce. During the coronation ceremony of Thor, a frost giant enters the realm of Asgard and disrupts the ceremony (why this was done at the time was a mystery). Thor in his passion leads a group of warriors to the planet of the frost giants to teach them a lesson. The simple touch of a frost giant freezes the skin like liquid nitrogen. This was great in 2D, I can only imagine what the CG graphics was like in 3D.

Odin is upset with Thor and takes his hammer and powers. He banishes Thor who speeds to earth only to crash into Natalie Portman and company in the desert (beginning scene). A bad hammer pun and a taser later, Thor is on his way to medical. The hammer lands elsewhere in the desert and is lodged like the Sword in the Stone. A group of yokels gather to have a cook out and attempt to remove said hammer...until the FEDS show up.

The film moves back and forth between events on earth and in Asgard, as Loki has assumed the throne of his ailing father. In order to convince the audience this is the real Thor, he speaks a Middle Earth style of English, making over frequent use of the word "realm." It works well as it allows him to flirt with Natalie Portman, who he thinks is the most clever person on the planet. (Isn't this one of the seven signs?
