Thor (Kenneth Branagh – 2011) B-

Definitely better than I expected. It was entertaining and fun, if a bit (well more than a bit) weak on the whole character development thing. I suppose it assumes you know something about the comic book series on which it is based. I do not. So I’m a little confused about Loki’s “power”. Are these people/gods/super-aliens mortal or immortal? They keep talking about dying and such. What do the Frost Giants really want? I mean, just attacking poor earthlings for no reason seems pretty dumb. On the other hand, I like Thor and his hammer. He seems like a nice guy and Hemsworth does a good job playing him. Same goes for Loki. He is a good villain and I liked his conflicted character and daddy issues.
