DCRJ's MOVIE REVIEWS: THOR (2011)

We saw THOR (2011) in 3D at a Digital Theater, SM Mall of Asia April 29, 2011 Friday. I have been reading the Mighty Thor comic books when I was in the 3rd grade and it was a thrill to see the endearing characters from my childhood sprung to life in this Kenneth Branagh film. Chris Hemsworth (father of James T. Kirk in 'Star Trek' 2009) is born to be the God of Thunder, he is physically perfect as the Mighty Thor/Donald Blake with much bravado, arrogance and tenderness. Anthony Hopkins perfectly as the withered and wisened Odin. Tom Hiddleston perfectly cast as the supervillain Loki with intensity and sadness to the portrayal. I never liked Natalie Portman specially her Padme Amadala role in the Star Wars prequels but surprisingly she gets to play Jane Foster with the right touch and charm to the role. The film is a perfect blend of action, humor and wit other than the exciting visual treat and eye candies. The realm of Asgard is one of the best visual designs I have seen. Stan Lee makes another cameo here. As usual, as seen in some Marvel films, don't get out of the theater after the credits rolled out, you'll get another sequence which is a prelude to the next chapter of Thor along with THE AVENGERS. Great movies for the summer ! My ratings: a huge 5 out of 5 Biscuits !


Jane Foster, the love interest of Thor, is a nurse in the comics while Jane Foster is an archeologist in the movie. Thor aka Donald Blake has a cane and when tapped against the floor it'll turn into the Mjolnir hammer and Blake becomes Thor while in the movie version there's no cane. Donald Blake is a doctor in the comics while he is disguised as an archeologist in the movie. Pathway to Asgard is by means of a rainbow bridge in the comics, in the movie the bridge is made up of transparent bricks with illuminating colors.
