PEOPLE: Natalie Portman… AGAIN? Enough of her already. Everyone acts like she is the hottest woman alive. She’s just another hot brunette. I could name 50 hotter than her in just a few minutes.
Anthony Hopkins was a good Odin.
QUIRKS: Based on a comic book.
VISUALS: Solid high-budget visuals. Nice to finally see Asgard in a decent live-action production.
GOOD STUFF: The non-Earth shots look amazing.
BAD STUFF: What the hell was the point of Darcy (Kat Dennings)? Why does her character exist? Why is she even in the movie?
CONCLUSION: A decent addition to the tons of comic book based movies that have come out this past decade. Good effects, a decent (but not great) story, and some nice fights. What did you expect?
I think Carolyn liked it more than me.
RECOMMENDATION: A must-see for comic-completists.
SIMILAR MOVIES: Tons of superhero movies out lately.
