In its time, it was a magic voyage into the life of the gods, it had great locations in space to explore. However, I did feel that there could have been more world building, like Jotunheim, the planet need more screen time to understand it better or they could have brought in different mythical beings. Overall I enjoyed what it had to offer.
This film has some of my favourite quotes of the cinematic universe, it made me laugh and got me tense. But, it did have a basic plot and was predictable throughout. It did open up the world of marvel more and made it very interesting too.
Thrilling shots and epic effects, each punch and hammer throw looked mighty. The fight scenes were done very well, especially the fight on Jotunheim; enemies coming from all angles and the big monster smashing through the ice. Some effects didn’t look right to me, like some of the frost Giants, they looked out of place from the rest of the world.
Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston were perfect for their roles, Loki was cunning and Thor was heroic. They had great chemistry and had me wanting more. My favourite though was Idris Elba, he is just a great actor and in Thor he plays Heimdall with easy, having a mysterious and noble take on the character.
