Thor (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 4:28 PM, under ,, | No comments

It takes a director known for his sense of Shakespeare to an action movie spectacular summer filled with epic battles and struggles family.

According to Kenneth Branagh management, Thor has spectacular special effects, sound and performance, perhaps the most remarkable 3-D technology to good use. Although the plot has some holes, the dazzling appearance of the film, the action sequences rattling land bridge these gaps.

Based on the Marvel superhero comic book origins of Norse mythology, the God of Thunder to free jokes funny enough to make the whole enterprise more enjoyable.

Not only is it great to watch - thanks to CGI spectacular cast and production designer Bo Welch regular work - is anchored in a performance attractive, Chris Hemsworth. Although it seems every inch heavy Norse god, Hemsworth is not just a piece. His charisma and a charming smile go a long way toward engaging to do Thor.

Jane (Natalie Portman), Erik (Stellan Skarsgard) and Darcy (Kat Dennings) is a trio of contemporary scholars, as is done in a disoriented Thor, which crashed in the desert of New Mexico.

Wise father of Thor, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), has been banished from his irascible son of Asgard to give a lesson in hubris. Meanwhile, Thor, Loki's brother (Tom Hiddleston) has some tricks up his sleeve.

Portman and Hemsworth have good chemistry. I spend a night under the stars and talk about magic and science. "Their ancestors called it magic, call it science," said Thor. "I come from a place where they are one and the same thing."

But his best lines are drawn, ironically, the variations in the scheme of fish out of water.

Thor Hammer also magical land in the desert, which attracts men to run spy / right to a trial, the S.H.I.E.L.D In their midst is a cameo by Jeremy Renner, ready to bow and arrow. (Her character, Hawkeye, have more screen time in the adaptation of Joss Whedon for The Avengers, due out next year.)

The best scenes are thrilling battle between the Norse and their nemesis, the mighty Frost Giants. Sharply honed ice vs mighty hammer of Thor to create a massive, crushing chaos.

That is, if the 3-D will play a big surprise, and Thor suddenly to the ground in the middle of what looks like the aurora borealis.

Thor bright start in the realm of the gods of Asgard looks golden Vegas - and the palace looks like a giant pipe organ - but somehow it works.

Fans of The Lord of the Rings visual recognize some "loans". (Let's call it a tribute?)

Although you can not leave a lasting impression when the lights go up, Thor is a good fun light and thunder.
