Chris Hemsworth has had prior experience with wielding a hammer, having worked as a builder in Australia for a few years. See more »
The hammer landed about 50 miles to the west of the town (according to the man in the diner). When Sif and Co. arrive, the SHIELD agent at the console says that it was about 50 miles to the north-west, placing it 75-80 miles from the town. Yet, when the Destroyer arrived, which was at the same location as Sif and Co, it was clearly on the outskirts of town. See more »
This is one of those movies that could've been great, but falls victim to formulaic Hollywood thinking.
Drop the unneeded quasi-romance and Natalie Portman, and you'd have a better movie.
I'm also not sure about the casting choice for Thor. I get it, and I get why a lot of people are probably ga-ga about the choice, but Thor would be better off if he came across as more intelligent (and higher emotional IQ). Thor is supposed to be incredibly strong but not a derpy brute.
Maybe I'm being too harsh. The fact of the matter is that the way the movie was done, you find yourself rooting way more for Loki, who is absolutely terrific.
Have a spin-off with just Loki, and it'd prob be a ten.
