Sound and video B+.
Just saw this last night.
Marvel has been great recently at creating sublimely mediocre superhero fair. They're just churning them out like hotdogs at an Oscar Meyer factory with little regard to story or acting or character quality.
I'm with you, thebland, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins should be ashamed at bottom feeding this much. I could barely forgive her for Your Highness
... and now she goes and does Thor
. She's quickly going the way of Halle Barry and Cuba Gooding, Jr.
And what happened to the usually great Kenneth Branagh?? Still paying Emma Thompson's divorce settlement?
The special effects were low rent CGI with a very video game-like look.
