With the first 'Thor' reviews rolling in, buzz indicates it might be even better than 'Iron Man.' Some reviewers calling the movie Marvel Studios' best cartoon adaptation yet and singling out star Chris Hemsworth for special praise. (As of today, it's running 89 percent positive on Rotten Tomatoes.)

Of course, most of these early reviews are from the film's comic-book-loving fandom circles. The two major industry papers also liked it, but one wasn't quite a rave.

The Hollywood Reporter says, "The hammer-hurling god of thunder kicks off this superhero summer with a bang." Variety was less enthusiastic, saying, "It delivers the goods so long as butt is being kicked and family conflict is playing out in celestial dimensions, but is less thrilling during the Norse warrior god's rather brief banishment on Earth."
