Superheroes are always made up to be tough, physically huge, good looking, and have different interesting powers. Thor is an ideal superhero - tall, handsome, built like a house, and with superpowers. Thor lives in a magical realm called Asgard with his brother Loki and parents Odin and Frigga. His father gives him a hammer called Mjolnir and enchants it with powers. During the summer the movie version came out and we learned a lot about Thor.

Thor is a well made and epic film. As a kid (and even now) I wasn't really a fan of Thor. I've usually stuck to other superheroes, but this film really made me want to get Thor comics and read up on him. The movie overall was wonderful. Lots of nicely shot scenes, great acting, and a strong story line. We learn about Thor and his family and friends. We see Thor fall in love with a human named Jane (played by Natalie Portman). The added character of Darcy (played by Kat Dennings) was funny and terrific. She was Jane's assistant. Then we see Thor's brother Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) become his nemesis after he finds out he's adopted and is a frost giant (frost giants are the enemies of the Gods of Asgard). The Gatekeeper (played by Idris Elba) is also quite the awesome character. The story is incredibly captivating and interesting.

This isn't the best superhero film ever made, but it is quite entertaining. There are lots of cameo appearances as well!

Thor is basically the breakout film for Chris Hemsworth who plays the title role. You might remember him as Captain Kirk's dad in Star Trek (2009). In this film he was charming, intimidating, and dynamic. He was the perfect person to cast as Thor.

Another breakout star is Tom Hiddleston. I know a lot of people may have never heard of him, but now I'm sure you guys are fans. He plays Loki, the brother and nemesis of Thor. He really shined in this role. Most of the time I found myself liking Loki more then Thor.

I give Thor 4 out of 5 stars, because it is awesome!
