Movie Review: Thor - PG13

Because of his arrogance, and for breaking a truce with their enemy that had been in place, Thor is banished to earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins).   He soon meets Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), a scientist, and her friends who help him adapt.  When a villain from his home world of Asgard threatens earth, it is up to Thor to try to regain his power and defend earth, and the people who have become his friends.  He also learns a couple of valuable lessons in the process.  I think the story was quite effective in teaching the value of humility and the folly of arrogance.

There  is  LOTS of action, very well integrated with a captivating story and spectacular cinematography and special effects.  I thought Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Anthony Hopkins (Odin) were particularly good in their roles.

No content warnings.  I took my nephews, 10 and 13, and there was nothing objectionable.   We all loved it.

2 words: see it!

How can watching anything that does not glory the Almighty God be good for anyone to watch? Making our children shake hands with folklore and thinking that's it's ok isn't Godly.
