  • Jason Glugla says:

    Thor may be the worst Marvel film to date, it is completely boring and lifeless with absolutely zero in terms of character and story development with battle scenes that are nothing more than shakey cam. Natalie Portmans serves no purpose other than to gaze longingly for the entire film at studly.

  • The Winchester says:

    No way it's worse than Wolverine or Daredevil.
    But, no way is it better than Punisher War Zone, which is the greatest Marvel movie ever.

  • Dixon Gaines says:

    For me, it was a solid B+ movie. Not as great as the first Iron Man, but not as dull as the Hulk. Just a nice, fun action movie.
    And Winchester is right, NOTHING could be as bad as Wolverine.

  • Dimo says:

    It was super cheesy...and I mean that in the best possible way.

  • Susanna says:
