Thor in 3D – Wow! Thor the Norse god, Thor the comic hero and now Thor the film star!
The THOR film is literally magnificent. The special effects for THOR are the best yet. Asgard looks stunning and is still based on the artwork from when Jack Kirby drew Thor at Marvel comics some 60 years ago (The Mighty Thor). The storyline is not the original Marvel Thor comic book origin story but what they have done with it works very well. Anthony Hopkins is fabulous as Odin and the other characters are well cast. My only gripe would be the modernisation of Thor’s Asgardian language. Thor speaks a little in the Old English style he had in the Thor comics but it kind of gets forgotten later on and Thor ends up saying things like, “Well, maybe I had it coming” and that seems rather odd. Thor and the other Asgardians do seem a bit too human for the most part but these are minor gripes for what is one of the best Marvel adaptations so far. THOR is certainly on a par with the Spiderman and X-Men films. The Destroyer, resurrected from the Thor comics, is totally awesome and far outstrips the Thor comic version. Yep, thumbs up – go see THOR, especially in 3D!
