THOR, The movie in 7 words. B5RCL5Y

(Be advised, may contain spoilers)

MUSCLES (Non CG ones too). THUNDER (Lots of it). LOVE (MEH). ASGARD (Hmmmm). PLOT TWIST (Damn ! didn't see that coming - sarcasm). WIN (Obviously).

The Good, The Bad, The F'ugly.

The Good.
Chris Hemsworth is Thor and "he got bad-ass muscles too - well cast".
Visual effects were pretty decent.
The movie was fun for the most part.
Big blue, mutated gold fish in the dark, cold realm of the monsters.
Acceptable use of thunder. (despite the hammer effects being very gimmicky at times)
Fan service.

The Bad.
Half-arse'd story.
Not many memorable characters or moments.
Of the few battles, none made my mind go "EPIIIIIIIIIIIIC".
Natalie Portman's character falls in love with a super-agent beating, cup-smashing alien. (Chemistry between the two characters wasn't very well presented in the film)
The THOR mythology deserved a little more attention.

The F'ugly.
Visual effects were shoddy at certain sections.
Thor flies like a helicopter on steroids.

Overall, the movie was fun. If you're a fan of the comic or relate to Thor in nostalgic retrospect. You will probably like the film, just don't go into the movie expecting a comic book representation (It's hard being a comic book fan boy, I know). It's not a bad movie by any means but is just not a good one at that either.


However, on a slight tangent. Who do you think would win in a fight between THOR (god of thunder) and KRATOS (god of war) ?

What do you think ?
Please share your thoughts below.


  1. I'm still on the fence with this one, I think I'll wait for the rental.
