Thor is a movie about the powerful but arrogant god Thor (Chris Hemsworth) who is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders. Thor’s exile comes after he fans the flames of an ancient conflict but he soon discovers the meaning of humility when a powerful old foe dispatches a destructive force to crush humanity. Only when the banished prince has defeated an opponent capable of crushing him in battle will he learn what it takes to be a true leader.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, 2011, 115 minutes, rated PG-13, Walt Disney Pictures. Featuring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Tom Hiddleston.
Informative, got to understand the point of view (sorry) for the seeing impaired. It makes little difference in the film itself except for high action levels, where there is a bit too much narration. Maybe not great, but better than average, need a "sort of great" button.
