Storyline

Jon Mikl Thor was a bodybuilding, steel bending, brick smashing rock star in the 70's and 80's whose theatrical band THOR hit the scene alongside Metallica and Kiss, but never achieved the gold record status of its contemporaries. After a brief but memorable film career saw him starring in the cult classics Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare and Zombie Nightmare, Thor all but disappeared from the entertainment map. But ten years into retirement, and incapable of living like a normal mortal human being, Thor attempts a comeback to achieve the level of success that had eluded him his entire career - a comeback that nearly kills him. Tracing the rise, fall, and rebirth of a determined performer over the course of a career that has seen more than its fair share of highs and lows, I AM THOR paints a fascinating and sometimes unbelievable portrait of this larger-than-life icon.

Very Very incredible movie. Lots of emotion.
12 January 2016 | by vintageleaguesSee all my reviews

I have seen many documentaries. I believe that I have never been so moved or enthralled by a movie. Ryan Wise has created a masterpiece. If I can make a comparison to other films that have given me so much intrigue, emotion and excitement I can mention The Wrestler or Rocky. But this is a documentary. Yet it plays like a docudrama. It is captivating. I cried and I laughed and got up and cheered. Yes I got up cheered for Jon Mikl Thor. This wonderful and amazing human being. What he goes through and the obstacles that are overcome are sheer amazement. We are having a party this weekend with my friends and we will watch this together and be inspired.
