One of the most successful Marvel’s superhero films of 2011 “THOR” is making its way onto DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D from Paramount Pictures on September 13, 2011. The 3 CD set contains the movie on Blu-ray in HD 3D and HD 2D, plus on DVD with a digital copy.
The film tells the story of THOR who is the proud first born child of King Odin of Asgard, and he is very soon to become heir to the throne. During the ritual the Frost Giants attack, attempting to seize a tool which was taken from them during the previous war between Jotunheim and Asgard. Thor unites a team to confront the Jotunheim’s leader. His father Odin who expected to retain harmony in Asgard, is enforced to remove Thor’s superiority and exile him to Earth.
He has to stay as a human until he can show himself valuable. Odin has fallen into a coma and Loki become heir to the throne and sends the slayer to destroy Thor. His dependable friends are arrived to take him back. In a clash with a slayer Thor and his friends join to defeat the enemy, and when Thor decides to sacrifice his life for others, his power is reinstated.
The storyline is excellent with some humor. It portrays allusions from various aspects of Thor's history and the action scenes are eye-catching with some fantastic special effects, but it stacks quite a lot of story into two hours. By all means it should not work but it fit in to be an enjoyable adventure that manages several subplots very successfully. I ought to say that Marvel's selection of Kenneth Branagh paid off them greatly and Kenneth Branagh attests to be a brilliant pick for director, surely credit to his Shakespearean roots. He well visualized a proper unify of the amazing elements of Asgard, with the pragmatism that has been recognized in Marvel's earlier movie releases with which this one is linked. The cast is truly exceptional, Chris Hemsworth does a remarkable job as Thor. Natalie Portman and the reset of the cast here all brought their talents.
If you are an enthusiast of comic book movies I suggest that you give this film a try when it comes out on DVD it is well worth your time.
