Attended the midnight screening of Thor last night and thought I'd post up a quick, spoiler-free review:
I really enjoyed it. It was a solid effort that entertains despite its flaws. B+
The Warriors Three were well cast, but just didn't have enough screen time. Loki was well cast. I was also impressed with Heimdall.
There was too much CGI and some of it was bad. Maybe it was because I saw it on such a large screen. Although the Destroyer was amazing and I was impressed by the twist they added to it.
The last half of the movie seemed to wrap up too quickly for the build-up the first half had set up.
They spent a little too much time on Earth and not enough on Asgard. The scale of Asgard was ridiculously large and did make you wonder how they moved around with such ease.
A lot of fun little Easter eggs and cameos.
I sat next two a couple of ladies who were obviously dragged out last night to see it, but based on their reactions, they had fun and liked it which is a great sign for the film and its broader appeal.
Make sure you say behind after the credits...
Well worth the shock of an early Friday morning! (Off to get some coffee now...)
