This was a good movie and I probably would have given it a higher rating, if it wasn't in 3D. (I saw it in 3D much to my disgust.) Now through this review, you may here me rant several times about how much I hate 3D. If you are offended, suck it up.
Thor starts off with a history lesson! Just like you were still in school. It shows battles and such between Thor's people and a race called Ice Giants. The Ice Giants were supposedly trying to conquer Earth. Thor's people try to help the humans to stop them. They manage to drive back the ice giants all the way back to their home planet. The norseman's King, Odin, stormed the Ice Giants' planet and took their power source.
Twenty or so years pass since then and Thor with his brother Loki are getting around pretty good. Thor is about to be named the new King or heir or something when Ice Giants try to steal back their power source. Thos stops them and leads a charge to the Ice Giant's home planet. When he returns, he is striped of all rank and power and sent to Earth to learn a lesson. he can have his hammer, Mjolner, when he learns the lesson he's sent to Earth to learn. A bunch of stuff happens. Thor breaks out of a hospital, gets arrested by S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives and then he somehow passes of as a scientist.
It seems like Thor is only on Earth for a few days when a big metal thing that breathes fire is sent from Loki to kill his "brother". Thor's comrades also arrive to help him fight. Everyone gets creamed by the metal thing. Again and again and once more. When the metal thing is about to shoot his fire towards the Earth girl that Thor's been hanging out with, Thor leaps into the line of fire and gets hit instead. His hammer comes flying in from a few miles away and he then gets his royal battle armor (or something back) and kills the metal thing. He flies back to his home and shit goes down.
The story was lacking in some parts. I had the displeasure of seeing it in 3D and there wasn't a single 3D moment. If you have to waste an extra couple of bucks to go see it, shouldn't there at least be something in 3D!? And the best part is, it was originally filmed in 2D but they changed it to 3D for the stupid 3D craze that's going on!
Anyway...yeah the story had a couple of holes in it but wasn't that bad. The fight scenes were amazing like most Marvel movies. A lot of the characters were interesting too. It was fun to see the reactions between people. Overall I think the movie was a solid 7/10. It got considerable worse once it was in 3D. You had to wear those stupid glasses so that your eyes could concentrate and there wasn't any 3D! So that only just barely deserves a 5/10 I'll come back through and re edit this after it's left theaters or come out on DVD/Blu Ray. That way I can tell and critizize more of the story. So come back in a few months.
