THOR is a "fairy tale coming true" adventure. The mighty THOR is the heir to the throne of the realm of Asgard. His brother is a jealous man. He makes sure that THOR is banished from the kingdom and makes arrangements to usurp the throne. THOR is sent to Earth, where he finds love and loses his arrogance. Well, as destiny would have it, he goes back to Asgard through the worm hole and saves the day.
Now, the movie has great visual effects and even the sense of humour is spot on. But, it's not amazing and it stops short of good. Chris Hemworth looks like a brute and is perfect for THOR, while Natalie is her charming self. Wicked brother, Loki, is played with sincerity by Tom Hiddlestone and even the background score is engaging.
But like all fairy tales, its too far fetched. When people from other dimensions come to earth, a secret group of alien hunters suddenly appear from no where and act as if it's usual business. Things happen too conveniently and in this realm of realism, this fantasy is a little out of place. Also, the visuals in some of the fight sequences are so fast, dark and jerky, that the 3D goggles make it difficult to really understand what happened.
Nonetheless, the movie is well worth the ticket because of it's brisk pace and steady comedy. So in case you are free, catch it. Timepass fare at best but surely not a bore.
