TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3978 - Okay... I'm back from viewing the second of the Thor films from Marvel!
My previous review blog #3407 reviewed the May of 2011 Thor film. Here's the link to that review. As you can see from reading that blog, I was totally surprised at the quality of that first film!
So what's my thoughts on this film? Here goes...
First, if you are into previews, here's the link to the Wikipedia entry on the film. SPOILER WARINING! It gives away a LOT of the film!
Secondly, I've gotta admit... The Storyline of this 2013 film was fantastic!
Not in the 'fantasy' fantastic sense of the word, but that it was a fantastically smoothly written screenplay! The different locations were worked in properly, and the cutting of the film was done superbly!
The scenes and CGI were done very well, and not 'comic-booky' at all! Very well directed and produced film in my opinion!
The cast were smoothly integrated and I was wrapped up in the film due to the storyline and the cast of characters!
Standouts in the film were Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Zachary Levi as Fandral, and Stan Lee as a patient in a mental ward, (Stan's cameo appearance)!
Of course I waited till the very end of the credits to see the final scene of the film. That was both nice to see and also funny!
There was also a scene after the main credits were run.
All in all, this film was worth the money I paid to see it! It was the meshing of the great storyline and the cast of characters that did it for me!
I would give it a NEAR MINT (NM) 9.4 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.
I urge you to see this film, especially if you saw the first Thor film, or the Avengers film from last Summer!
