Storyline

The young blacksmith Thor lives happily with his single mother in a peaceful little village. The legend says he is the son of Odin, the King of the Gods. Therefore the fellow villagers believe that the terrifying Giants will never attack them. But they are terribly mistaken. A Giant army crushes the village and takes the villagers to Hel, the Queen of the Underworld. Thor is knocked out and left behind. He sets out to save his friends with the hammer Crusher - who claims to be a magical weapon! Written by Friðrik Erlings

Cute film with tongue-in-cheek humor
27 August 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I don't know why this film has such a low rating. I found it very enjoyable. Sure, the story isn't exactly complex and the pacing is a bit slow but there's so much going on on screen in the meantime that the main plot fades into the background. This movie should be watched for its character interaction and its sense of humor.

Also, yes, the film takes its liberties with the mythology but very few modern interpretations don't. And with this film, you actually benefit from knowing a thing or two about Norse mythology. There are lots of little jabs and allusions in it, from a scene that discusses divine responses (and lack thereof) to sacrifice to a rather honest portrayal of the state in which the Einherjar might arrive in Valhalla. Also keep an eye out for the symbol of Thor's mother's smithy! A bit of clever non-religious symbolism there.
