THOR is magnificent and definitely the movie of the gods. Chris Hemsworth was the perfect person to play the title character who is charming but at the same time, an arrogant god of thunder. Hemsworth did a perfect job on the role and most noticeably packed on heaps of muscle for this role. It is good to see some Australian talent rising to the big screen. Other acting performances in the film include Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins and Tom Hiddleston who the latter did a brilliant job as the evil and clever Loki along with the direction by Kenneth Branagh.

If I were to describe this movie in three words, I would say that it was spectacular. Stay tuned for THE THREE MUSKETEERS 3D.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever

  1. I am glad to see a possitive review for Thor. It is my second favorite comic book movie after Captain America: The First Avegner and my second favorite movie of the year. I have always been a fan of the Thor comic books.
