It received generally positive reviews from critics. Three sequels have been released: Thor: The Dark World (2013), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), and Thor: Love and Thunder (2022).


Jan (Age 12): ★★★★

"The best scenes in this film were; Thor fighting the frost giants in Joutunham, Odin banishing Thor from Asgard, Thor first meeting Jane, Thor trying to get mjolnir back (spoiler! He failed), Loki claiming the throne of Asgard, Thor's friends coming to Earth to bring him back to Asgard, Thor fighting the Destroyer, Loki Vs Thor, Thor destroying the bridge, and Loki's 'death'. It was pretty good movie but it was too dramatic and confusing for me. 'My Favourite character top 3 of this movie' is;

1. Loki

2. Thor

3. Odin

Overall a good film, hopefully 'Captain America: The First Avenger' is just as good, or better!"

For more teams of heroes looking to save the world check out Avengers: Endgame. For more Middle Earth check out the rest of the Lord of the Rings trilogy is worth a look as is The Hobbit trilogy. There is also the recent TV series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. For more child friendly fantasy tales of kings and curses there's Brave. While Andy Serkis gives another tremendous CGI performance in the Planet of the Apes trilogy. Anthony Hopkins gives another excellent performance in One Life.
