Makes no real sense in the real world. Plus I'm generally a big fan of Marvel and their movies. Even though the storyline was somewhat predictable, it was still a riveting one. Thor takes the ball and runs with it and places that bar even higher. One last thing, the film I saw was in 3d and once again, it practically nearly ruined all the action scenes for me. As I previously said, it is a very entertaining movie with various positive elements, like Branagh's efficient direction, which drives the movie at a perfect rhythm.
Once Thor the god of thunder completes this astonishing and instant transformation and sacrifices his life for others, his hammer flies back to him, revives him and he beats the bad guys with it. Thor: Ragnarok Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. I watched this last night at a preview screening in London. It might not be a great film, but it definitely made me have a good time. Did the film introduce anything for anyone to attach themselves to emotionally? Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization. For example, we also have the character of Agent Coulson conducting scientific investigations from S. Marvel found two absolute diamonds in the rough.
Spider-Man set a new standard for the superhero film genre back in the day. Characters appear in odd order without any development. While there Thor literally changes overnight from being an arrogant, rash and violent idiot to a wise, humble and pacifist purveyor of all things noble, and the only possible reason for this that's presented in the movie is that he met Natalie Portman and was then told that his father died while he was gone. I prayed that Kenneth Branagh would learn from his mistakes with handling a big budget movie, namely his Frankeinstein. Of course, this is no Henry V, this is just pure popcorn entertainment but a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to Thor for the big screen.
And make sure you stay for the end credit scenes. Actually while I am here typing I just realized something : This film is below the dignity of critique. They tell a separate story strand that will culminate to a certain upcoming Marvel movie. I will therefore cease to add speak about it for fear of giving someone the illusion that there is anything to actually speak about in terms of artistic critique. The visuals were quite spectacular, mainly, the sweeping canvas of Asgard. Did professionals write this film? Does anyone identify with any characters here? The action scenes were also good though I thought could have been executed better with lesser use of the fast cut edit style that is too often the norm in action film these days. I should've known better because Marvel knows their characters and knows what we want to see.
Thor was much much better than I expected. If you really, really love Marvel movies and viking folklore to the point where you don't mind these things being made a joke out of and have 2. I know the script is written mostly for them but they carry it in a big way. So its all coming together nicely. And Branagh's competent direction, the excellent performances and the solid screenplay make Thor to be a very entertaining movie. Anthony Hopkins added much needed heavyweight presence as Odin but its a role he has quite frankly played a gazillion times but I never tire of it, so I'm not complaining. Did you understand the brothers motives? Otherwise you might as well spare yourself from this glorious waste of time and brain cells.
. Did Antony really read the script or did he just see the figures in the contract? I also liked the work from Stellan Skarsgard; his participation is relatively short and it would seem irrelevant if it was not for the dramatic weight this actor brings to the character with his mere presence. In the non action scenes, it was pretty useless and just simply made the film much darker. Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god Thor, and Tom Hiddleston as his villainous brother Loki show they have the acting ability and star quality to become mega-marquee names in the future. Unfortunately it's one of the dumbest things I've seen in years, and is completely full of moronic cliches and the most superficial faux morals.
Chris Hemsworth played the part with a lot of energy, charisma and I have to admit from a bloke's point of view, annoying good looks. For those like me, who were concerned about how Thor fits into the established Marvel connected universe set by the Iron Man films need not worry. It is so poor, so badly directed and written that to even point out the weak character development or random script turns give too much credit to it. That is just another thing that Branagh and crew pulls off very well. You knew Acedemy Award winners Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman would bring it but these relative unkowns more than hold their own on screen.
Please do yourself a favour and spend your money on things that are more deserving of it, especially if you've worked hard to earn it. They certain did these long-time Marvel greats proud. Intelligent comic-book popcorn epics are rare and this one is definitely a cut above the usual fare. As for the action scenes, I found them to be well filmed, with the exception of a few excessive close-ups which made them occasionally confusing; I think that is the only thing I can say against Branagh's direction. Director: Taika Waititi Actors: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett Language: English Subtitle Name: Thor. Nothing too taxing for any of them but they do give a re-assuring aura about them. Thankfully, I am glad to say he learnt a great deal from those mistakes.
In conclusion, I took a very pleasant surprise with Thor, and I can recommend it as a very good re-invention of a difficult to handle superhero. In a year long span of brilliantly playing vastly different roles from psychotic to swashbuckling heroine, Natalie Portman this time plays the sweet determined scientist girl who falls for the strangely mannered good looking guy. We need to use up Nat so lets force a romance into the script. Thor is imprisoned on the planet Sakaar, and must race against time to return to Asgard and stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his world, at the. As for the cast, besides of the previously mentioned Hemsworth, I think that the rest of the actors is also worthy of applause, starting by Natalie Portman, who can perfectly express her character's emotions.
