Movie Impressions: Thor

Saw at PVR Cinemas, Forum Mall, Kormangala

Ticket price : Rs. 180

3D/2D : 2D

What works?
The CG is really pretty. Especially the scenes where Thor’s home world of Asgard is shown. It’s visually striking and the most memorable part of the movie was in Asgard only.
The casting works as well. All the girls in the theater were drooling over Chris Hemsworth. Anthony Hopkins had a small role and his eye patch look was nice.Natalie Portman has a small role, nothing much to write.

What doesn’t work?
The whole execution of Thor being exiled from Asgard and him learning all about humility and humanity in one single night just by interacting with 3-4 humans is too shaky.
How would the meaning of being humble be ever understood by a person who has been arrogant for quite some time. Anyways the second half turns out to be okey-dokey.

Is it worth the theater trip?
Yes, the beauty of Thor’s Home world can only be appreciated on the big screen. The detail will be evident in theaters only.
