I went to go see Thor tonight, as a treat to myself for getting my school work done and completing the last day of my high school career. While I thought it was a good movie, I saw a few things that disappointed or irritated me:
- The makers of this film took the stereotype of someone suddenly finding themselves in our society and misbehaving in it (a la Enchanted or Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure). This led to some funny lines and situations, but this type of film makes me uneasy and I don't enjoy the as much as other films.
- The heavy reliance on comedy. Don't get me wrong, I love a few funny lines in my comic book movies, but this one is a little over the top. Even the action sequences came across as comical at times.
- The lack of depth in the villain. Loki is supposed to be mysterious and chaotic, but he never seems to have a definite goal in mind and feels one-dimensional.
- Anti-climatic. I won't go into detail, but many of the big climatic moments seem to deflate rapidly, as if wanting to move the movie along.
