Featured Gold Star Writer Bio

Jane Foster is a scientist in the New Mexico desert researching the aurora borealis. One day she and her fellow scientist Eric and assistant Darcy are confronted by an unexplained weather phenomena. Jane, played by Natalie Portman, chases after the storm in her van and ends up hitting something. It turns out to be a rather handsome and old fashioned guy, always talking about realms and wondering where he is. He claims to be Thor, son of Odin and brother of Loci. Jane suspects he is just a homeless person. Whoever Thor is, he must learn to cope in a new world and live among humans.

Chris Hemsworth sparkles with personality as Thor. Natalie Portman, however, is slightly less charismatic. Despite the occasionally cheesy dialogue, the romance is charming. Thor's character arc is clearly shown throughout the movie. At first, he takes everything for granted and is arrogant and longs for excitement. But once his actions lead to dire consequences, he begins to redeem himself by trying to help other people.

Although the special effects can become annoying, and sometimes make me feel like I am stuck in a computer game, Thor does an excellent job of switching from a space world to the real world. The music is not dramatically overdone, and the volume is low enough that I could actually hear the dialogue. The action kept me in suspense. Chris Hemsworth is good looking and fun to watch, and I would definitely go to see him in another movie.

Although Thor is not a movie I would watch a million times in a row, it was definitely fun to see. Thor deserves four out of five stars.
