Movie Review: THOR 3D
The epic adventure THOR spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the mystical realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As a result, Thor is banished to Earth where he is forced to live among humans. When the most dangerous villain of his world sends its darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero.-- (C) Paramount Pictures

Marvelous and able Plot... The story can stand still even though narration from how it all began is lacking. Thanks to tidbits of humors and feel-good moments that maintained the viewers from its seat all throughout the film.
Great Visual Effects and Production Design. The film has really invested much on Post Production so as referring to CGI effects. I really loved the place of the Frost Giants. The movie balances the thrills of a summer blockbuster with tender romance and broad comedy.
Casting was also good. THOR was just a perfect resemblance of a quite arrogant and rebellious immortal figure with very masculine and manly over-all look. Indeed, a star-making central performance from Chris Hemsworth. Other supporting casts were also good enough to maintain the right excitement and thrill of the whole film.
Generally action packed, well designed, and serious without taking itself too seriously. This was a fun film with an excellent cast and a solid storyline.
It may not be the greatest Marvel Film and adaptation but I bet it would be far better than other Avenger Films.
