Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
The warrior Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Sir Anthony Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live amongst humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth.
This movie makes extensive use of actual Norse mythology (on which the "Thor" comic was based):
The war between the Asgardians and the Jotunns was based on the Aesir-Vanir War (the Jotunns were, in fact, a non-hostile, non-antagonistic race).
Odin's (Sir Anthony Hopkins') ravens Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory), who gather information in Midgard (Earth) and relay it to Odin, are sitting on his throne during Thor's coronation ceremony.
The symbol seen at the weapons vault, and on Mjölnir, is the triquetra, a religious symbol. Its ancestor is the valknut, a German symbol associated with Odin.
The Bifrost, originally thought of as the rainbow by the Norse, is seen as a beam of rainbow light.
Heimdall's golden observatory is based on the Himinbjorg, Heimdall's home.
When Odin appears in Jotunheim, he is riding his eight-legged horse Sleipnir.
A Jotun calls Thor (Chris Hemsworth) a "little Princess"; once, Thor's hammer was stolen and he dressed up as the love goddess Freya to retrieve it.
Fandral (Josh Dallas) and Thor each describe Loki (Tom Hiddleston) as mischievous and a talented liar, an homage to Loki's titles as the god of mischief and lies.
Thor asks for a cat to ride. Thor's mother Frigga (Rene Russo) has her chariot pulled by two large blue cats.
Thor shows Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) a drawing of crossroads with nine orbs in it, his perception and representation of Yggdrasil, a great tree around which the nine worlds are tethered, making up the universe.
(at around 1h 35 mins) Thor is holding his hammer in his right hand while he comes to the Bifröst and confronts Loki. When Loki sends him flying and he falls on his back and his hammer hits the floor, the hammer is in his left hand. It's back in his right hand after he gets up. See more »
Part of the closing credits is shot through the Bifrost, with the camera flying through the celestial realm of Yggdrasil, finally ending at Asgard. At the end, the film title appears with a small lightning strike within it. See more »

It remains only to marvel at the company Marvel, which gives an impressive amount of money for the implementation of films on their comic books under the guidance of "newcomers" in the genre of "summer blockbuster." Four years ago they did this with John Favreau, who previously filmed family comedies and yet surprised many with his "Iron Man". Now, the honored actor and director of the dramatic cinema and theater Kenneth Brana demonstrated miracles by taking off a large-scale fantasy comics epic.
Taking advantage of the tested scheme (to take on the role of the protagonist of a little-known actor and surround him with "loud names"), Brana did not lose. Chris Hamsworth is the perfect Thor! Possessing not only impressive physical training and memorable appearance, Hamsworth was able to convey the power and emotions of this character. In some places it is threatening, in places it's funny when it's necessary to be gallant. Yes, and in general, throughout the whole movie you penetrate to the Torah sympathy and you empathize with it.
As always, she is charming and charming. The first falls on the Torah and runs after him all the remaining time :)
Worthy performance of a worthy role. The first experience of Hopkins in the film kinomics was a success.
Sly, a jealous manipulator. Another one hundred percent hit in the role!
Jamie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Joshua Dallos, Tadanobu Asana and Idris Elba
Well-written characters, which should still be given a little more time, because each is interesting in its own way.
It is many, it is diverse, large-scale, beautiful, impressive and fascinating. The best episode is the battle of the top five warriors with the Ice Giants and a huge monster.
Looking at the trailers it seemed that the "Thor" would not be particularly pleased with the special effects, for both the monster's drawing and the Torah's hammer in action were not so impressive. But fortunately, the effects brought to shine and you can with full confidence to say that the "Torah" is the most grandiose special effects from all the films Marvel.
Ah, this Asgard! He is beautiful! Incredibly beautiful and the viewer is not satisfied with the monotonous views of the city. In each of Asgard's places shown, there is something unusual and unique. And the more interesting are the transitions from the deserted quiet town of New Mexico to the majestic palaces and structures of Asgard throughout the film.
Patrick Doyle has proved since the time of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" that he is an excellent composer, skillfully combining different musical styles. The "Torah" is mostly dominated by pathos and heroic music, but in times of dramatic moments, sad compositions play.
Humor in the film is not as much as we would like. But he is funny and in no way slips into jokes below the belt. True, it would have been more ridiculous to beat the scenes of "God Tor in the modern world among ordinary people."
Enough fun and interesting without obvious stupidities and sagging. Although Torah's "rebirth" was worth paying more attention.
In the film, a lot of Easter eggs for fans and attentive viewers. Starting from the most obvious (mentioning the Hulk and the Iron Man), ending with the hidden ones (Falcon eye). And at the end of the final credits, the audience expects another bridge to the upcoming "Avengers".
Undoubtedly, the most beautiful and grandiose film Marvel. Excellent entertaining summer movie. Satisfied should remain both the audience and the fans. I want to wish the studio to continue making films about my superheroes with the same love and warmth.
