  • Hemsworth, an Aussie actor with a vocal command to match his heaving brawn, doesn't just play the role, he owns it. I'm expecting both sexes will feel his impact. show more

  • A crappy 3-D conversion job mars this otherwise competent, energetic and cheerfully hambone Marvel adaptation from director Kenneth Branagh. show more

  • Though he looks every inch a brawny Norse god, Hemsworth is not just a hunk. His charisma and charming grin go a long way toward making Thor engaging. show more

    I have watched this movie at least 5 times! I love this movie and Chris makes Thor just jump out at you and you almost believe that Thor is real! According to the critics they didnt like this movie much and this is why I never see a movie that the critics DO like because they usually suck! I will be watching for this actor to go far!
