Two worlds. One hero.

Thor is obviously the latest film in the Marvel Film Universe, directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring fellow Aussie Christ Hemsworth as the Titular character. The plot kind of cuts to the spoilers early on so as a spoiler-free review I shouldn’t tell you the plot.

Though Kenneth Branagh is a really weird choice to direct this he does make this (I am happy) to say Marvel’s best work yet. He mixes a fan boy’s wet dream and mixes it with suitable humor, dazzling FX and (probably the best part of the movie) the family’s relationship to make this appeal to everybody.

The acting is also good, Chris Hemsworth was probably the perfect choice for Thor, Anthony Hopkins played Odin good (as he could do in his sleep), Natalie Portman played Jane good, though the character doesn’t have that much interesting, she does what she has too do, Kat Dennings was actually really good as Jane’s annoying friend who freshens up the humor throughout the movie, Stellan Skarsgård is good, the supporting cast was generally good but Tom Hiddleston steals the show, as the envious of Thor and mischievous villain Loki.

Kenneth Branagh did a really good job at this movie. Though it is at the start a bit hard to get into. But Thor is a great action film with strong acting, screenplay and direction. This is really the Superhero movie to beat this year.
