Brief Synopsis – Thor is back and this time must save Jane Foster when she is possessed by a great power.
My Take on it – I must confess that of the Avenger standalone heroes, Thor is my least favorite. I wasn’t so enthralled with the original movie.
Perhaps because of this fact, I wasn’t really looking forward to seeing this one, but I had heard some great things about it (especially from my friend table9mutant from Cinema Parrot Disco).
I was actually quite surprised by how much I enjoyed this. It is better than the original and also better than The Incredible Hulk (2008), but still has a ways to go to reach The Iron Man trilogy, Captain America (2011) or The Avengers (2012).
This movie is action-packed and bringing Loki back to be the antagonist for the third time was a smart move, because Tom Hiddleston is perfect in that role.
This movie is definitely worthy of the series and I now will be looking forward to the next Thor movie in the series.
Bottom Line – A step up from the previous Thor movie. Action packed Superhero movie worthy of being part of the continuing Marvel Avengers series. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
