Wick-Quoting #45: Thor

“Whoever wields this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”

=======================================================
Out of all the big comic book movies that came / are coming out this summer, the only one I’d honestly never heard of was Thor.  Now having watched the movie, I still don’t feel any big need to read a comic, but… I can say I know of its existence now.  Actually sorry, that’s a bit of a harsh way to frame my opinion of the movie.

Brothers

Thor is about the titual thunder God pissing off his father and being cast to Earth to redeem himself.  He’s too hotheaded and war hungry, which his father disapproves of.  And since this is Hollywood, he’s going to meet a girl, who in this case happens to be played by Natalie Portman, and of course she’s pretty brainy but otherwise just runs around a lot and is often shocked by something or another.  Still, there’s a pretty strong cast of characters, and Loki and Thor’s relationship with each other as well as their father was the overall highlight of the film for me as it gave the movie a very real sense of emotion that I feel most comic book movies lack.  The battle scenes aren’t thrilling, but the special effects were pretty good.  Overall, the film is exciting and moves along at a good pace.  It’s not exactly the best comic book movie out there, or really anything super special on its own, but it’s pretty good for a one time feel good view to fit the summer blockbuster vibe.

Lovers

To conclude… I actually don’t have much else to say. I don’t know anything about the Thor comic books but the ending is just begging for a sequel, so we’ll see what happens there… and I probably will go watch it, if that does happen.  Also, for those of you who may know even less than me about this movie, it really has nothing to do whatsoever with actual Norse mythology.  But you probably all knew that already (hopefully) so these few sentences are just space filler.
