Odin (Anthony Hopkins) is the King of one of the nine realms, Asgard. He has two sons, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Loki is viewed as weak, but Thor is the opposite. Very arrogant, and over confident, Thor has no fear, and when he risks restarting an ancient war, he defies his father’s order and travels to the land of the Ice Giants. Upon his return, Thor is cast down to Earth as a mere mortal along with his infamous hammer. No one can remove the hammer until someone worthy is given the power of Thor. Meanwhile a group of scientists lead by Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who is trying to discover the scientific meaning of the atmospheric disturbances that have been happening in the area. They rescue the human Thor and set out to right the wrongs, protect the 9 realms, and restore Thor to his rightful place in the sky.

Typically I am not a fan of comic book superhero stories, but this film is quite different. Mainly the mix of modern day Earth and the world of Asgard is very interesting. The CGI is stunning, and the action is fast and furious. The look of the film is awesome, especially in 3D. It is very well acted and well written. Chris Hemsworth looks fantastic as the superhero, Natalie Portman is delicious as his love interest, she was a perfect choice for this part scientist, part sweetheart role. Anthony Hopkins is wonderful as Odin. The cast is nearly perfect. The story is easy to follow and as I said, is extremely suspenseful and exciting. The fight sequences are awesome. I truly believe this is the start of a wonderful summer with the first really big movie of the season. If you’re a fan of superhero movies, this is certainly not one you’ll want to miss.
