Samuel L. Jackson,

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.

(at around 1h 21 mins) The coffee cup on the dashboard in the SHIELD agent's car is knocked over by the vibration of the Destroyer's arrival, in the next few shots of the same scene the coffee cup can clearly be seen inside the agent's car still standing up on the dashboard. See more »

In Nordic subtitles for this film, the name of Laufey has been changed to Leifur, since In Norse mythology (and thus, Nordic languages), the name Laufey is feminine and is the name of Loki's mother. See more »
I must be honest, my hopes for this movie were very low. The trailer wasn't very appealing and to capture Thor's comic magic was quite a challenge. Gladly i was mistaken, the movie is a great introduction to the asgardian hero and i was kept entertained from beginning to the end.
Balanced action that moves back and forward between Asgard and Midgard. Sadly 3D doesn't make the movie better, on the contrary. I sincerely hope 3D is reserved for pure animation movies... that's right... leave "pure" cinema alone.
Chris Hemsworth played the perfect Thor (after being bitten by zillions of steroid "bees" to bulk up for the part)
Hopkins plays Odin very well, wise, mysterious and powerful like the god of gods should be.
Was impressed with Tom Hiddleston has Loki, moving from a friendly innocent role to a mischievous, dark character (just like it was in the norse Myths).
Portman did her part, strangely looking very young compared to some other roles, but Chris/Tom lead the play here.
Using a color actor for Heimdall (Idris Elba) was a very odd move, considering we're talking about norse gods. Surprisingly it worked very well, since Heimdall is the guardian of Bitfrost and he messes up with magic portals, the dark skin gives him that arcane-wise looks.
Can't say the same about the Asian actor (Asano) who is COMPLETELY out of place here, with his strange accent and looks... one of the reasons i don't give 10 out of 10. Actually, i find Thor's friends (apart from Loki) a bit of the "weird bunch", lacking charisma and presence in the movie (and with the Asian guy, lacking on the norse department).
Asgard was well portrayed, CGI all the way... but comparing with the comics, Asgard is a very stylish version of a norse "olympium".
Action sequences were great and so was the humor. Many times i found myself laughing my behind off to some viking style behavior.
Don't want to spoil it for you, but if you know the comics style, you will actually feel like inside them sometimes, with all that cosmic atmosphere around the fight sequences - colorful, mysterious, out of this world.
The only last fault i can mention was me wanting for more... and isn't that a good thing for a first movie?
Bring on Thor 2!!! Odin be praised!
