Thor (2011)

Director : Kenneth Branagh
Thor : Chris Hemsworth
Villain : Tom Hiddleston as Loki

Thor is arrogant and is anxious to rule, as is his brother Loki. Because of his arrogance, his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) sends Thor down to earth to learn some humility. While on earth Thor learns some lessons and falls for scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman).

Meanwhile, back on Asgard, Loki consolidates his power. He starts out as a pretty decent guy, but when he learns some secrets about his past he becomes bitter. Thor's friends back on Asgard and the guardian of Asdgard, Heimdall, conspire to bring Thor back, while appearing to be loyal to Loki, who is now the king.

When Loki sends a Destroyer robot to earth, Thor without his powers, tries to fight him off. Loki controls the robot which has x-ray vision and which quickly dispenses of Thor's Asgard friends. Thor heads out to meet the giant, and talks to Loki, apologizing for whatever he may have done to him. He offers his life up, to save the innocent humans. Loki's robot smacks Thor, and Jane Foster runs out to him. Now that he is worry, Thor's hammer returns to him. His powers have returned. Thor uses his hammer to create a whirlwind which lifts the robot in to the sky and throws it back to earth destroying it. Thor then comes down and talks to Jane, outfitted in his normal garb.

Thor tells Jane he must go back to Asgard but he will return for her. King Laufey, of the frost Giants, is about to kill Odin, but Loki saves Odin and kills Laufey. He pretends to his mother that he is a hero, but Thor shows up and tells his mother the truth. Thor and Loki then battle, and Thor comes out on top as Loki drifts off in to space.

Overall, I thought the the movie was good. Chris Hemsworth made a pretty good Thor, as he tried to play the part of a god on earth. The scenes on Asgard were really well done and Anthony Hopkins made a great Odin.

The first time I saw the movie I din't think it was all that good. The second time I saw it, I was much more impressed. Overall, a good superhero movie.
