Saw it at 12:01 last night.

It was a nice origin movie I thought.

Characters were nicely done, I thought Heimdall (Idris Elba) was a badass, I really would have like to seen more of him. I thought Josh Dallas (Fandral) was an amazing casting call for marvel studios. Chris Hemsworth as Thor was one of the best character representations by far in any Marvel Movie to date. Tom Hiddleston was so the trickster, I really like his facial movements for Loki the most. I did like the CGI for the Frost Giants. I really wish they would have not had the Destroyer armor act like it was its own entity though, very disappointed in that aspect.

Really would have liked to seen a glance of Amora and Executioner. Was it them in the prison area? ONly a siloeuette you see.

Ray Stevenson another duel cast for Marvel. Lol.

The battle were awesome. The opening battle with the Frost Giants was definetly the best out of the 3 major battles.

The Hawkeye scene was sorta funny, first the shotgun, then he throws it and graps the bow. Nice.

After credits were weak. So they introduce the villian for the Avengers like we didn’t knowi t was going to be Loki. The ultimate power though, I didn’t follow thru on where they were going though.

9/10 in my book.

I think Thor was well cast and I like that the character
seemed very three dimensional, and not perfect. The movie
its self was hysterical; I was cracking up the whole time.
But it still had tons of great action, GREAT costumes and
nice settings. Plus, plenty of marvel universe references
:)

I did think it had too much romance. By which I mean, it
had romance. but other than that it was pretty good.

Pretty much just echoing you guys. I loved the movie. In more detailed response…

I was honestly alright with the romance plot. I didn’t think it overemphasized… and it was far less infuriating than every other Marvel movie romance (I swear… I’d like to kill every one of them except maybe Bruce/Betty… the rest are incredibly frustrating… lookin’ at you especially, Stark).

But, I mean, it wasn’t the main thrust of the movie. The action was excellent. The initial flashback approach was… less than stellar. Even with my not being a fan of that, I felt the pacing was quite good. Lots of humor; the Stan cameo was awesome as usual.

Even though Hawkeye was just a cameo here, a stronger cameo would have been nice.

Excellent Loki. He could have easily stolen the show had the rest of it not been equally impressive. +1 to Heimdall love.

And another +1 to after credits being fairly weak. Excited about Loki in Avengers, but it didn’t really do much for me. Not really knowing what the power in reference was didn’t help (still new at this comics thing, y’see).

Overall? Loved this movie. A lot. Felt different from all the other Marvel films yet still the same. Definitely recommended. I’ll be getting this one on Blu-Ray when it releases for sure.

I didn’t catch a “have at thee!” Big deal? Not really. I wanted one, though. :P

I’ll just point out the reason they got an Australian to play Thor is because we ALL look like that.

Seriously.

Seems like an overall win!

    I wish the Asgardian army that fought the Frost Giants in the 1st place would’ve made an appearance to protect their own homeland! During the invasion later it only came down to the 6 principle cast members to stop the enemy forces. There ought to be a load of stormtroopers ready to deal out butt-whippings the minute Heimdall so much as sneezes!

    That’s a good point Hardy. I hadn’t thought of that.

    I suppose you could argue that since Heimdall was frozen he couldn’t alert the troops.

    Also, it is considered an act of treason to act against the king’s orders and Loki would not have given the order for the troops to attack the Frost giants. He wanted the giants to enter Asgard so he could defeat them himself to prove his worth to Odin.

    Good points as well, Jason.

    But, where was Balder?

    And Odin’s crows?

    A mention of the Midgard Serpent would’ve been cool when Thor was explaining the 9 Realms. Maybe even a mention of Hercules (and Hel) with Thor about to answer when he’s cut off in mid-sentence.
