Thor (Branagh, 2011)

Thor (Kenneth Branagh, 2011)

Thor, knowing nothing but the world of Asgard, is sent to timeout on Earth by his father to think about what he has done. With this big burly warrior knowing nothing about the trends and customs of this new planet, we’re treated to a delightful Enchanted-esque barrage of amusing ignorance. At this point I was happily enjoying what seemed to be almost a superhero movie spoof. But, alas, the film eventually begins to take itself too seriously and is ultimately unwilling to play to its key strengths. Heck, the misogynic treatment of Natalie Portman’s character even could have been funny if they would have gone all-out parody. As is, it’s a fun movie, but not a good one. 6/10
