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

70mil budget, seriously?
29 May 2013 | by f1356524See all my reviews

To my recollection this is THE ONLY 3D-animated feature without ANY color grading. Oh dear… I couldn't even finish it the first time I started watching. I actually brought it into my NLE and graded it so it looked decent! Only then did I watch it. It's dreadful.

It's a shame really… Not only it's the stupidest and most boring of all 3D-features in existence, they couldn't even use Arnold to render hair correctly it's so noisy and thick. As are all glossy surfaces...

And kudos to people responsible for character design. You really need LOTS of talent to create characters THAT terrible. I'm dead serious.

If you're reading this, please, oh please, don't watch it. And if you do, please review it so others wouldn't waste their time and money.
