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
The movie was animated to fit pre-recorded English language dialogue for distributional reasons, then dubbed into Icelandic and other languages. See more »
Pretty dull experience
I rented this movie with my friends, seeing as I'm from Iceland and I love animated movies that was a must.
But this movie is terribly disappointing. It's both disappointing to general movie goers looking for a decent movie to watch, and for people that are familiar with the Nordic mythology. The thing that set's this film off is the fact that it bears an striking resembles to the Disney film Hercules.
All the aspects that made Hercules a bad Greek mythology movie are presented here except they are applied to Nordic mythology.
But that doesn't mean that it's a bad movie, what makes it a bad movie is that fact that it's a very bland story that has no weight to it. The animation looks decent enough but they got very, very lazy with making more character models than they had to.
There is a terrible anti climatic fight scene at the end, where the thurs are attacking Valhalla attempting to tear it down, battle of gods! But it's only like 10 thurs and 10 Æsir figthing, which is pathetic to say the least.
and by the way, they got millions in funds that came from tax payers to make this piece of... not so good movie. ahem.
