Chris Hemsworth Hammers Out A Winner: THOR

“Courage is immortal.”

Thor Movie

So, we’re big fans of comic-books-turned-action-films and were therefore super-excited to see this one. And trust us, it does not disappoint.

With an all-star cast, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) tells the tale of a god-type character from a different realm and his exile to earth. On the day that he is to be crowned king, he arrogantly disobeys his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), and is thus stripped of his powers, his hammer and banished to Earth.

Understandably, he sticks out a bit in our world, but manages to meet scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who tries to help him find his way back home. Though the pull to be with her is strong, he must return to stop his brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), from stealing his throne and bringing ruin to their world.

Here’s the run down:

Action: Definitely. If you like other super-hero films like those in the Spider-Man or X-Men series, you’ll love this one.

Romance: Of course! It would be difficult to show a shirtless Chris Hemsworth (older brother of The Last Song‘s Liam Hemsworth) and NOT have someone fall in love with him.

Humour: You bet. Thor’s transition from his planet Asgard to Earth, where the culture is a little less, well, Viking-ish, provides some good laughs. Also, watch out for Kat Denning’s character, Darcy, with her priceless reactions to the epic moments.
