Consensus: A dazzling blockbuster that tempers its sweeping scope with wit, humor, and human drama, Thor is mighty Marvel entertainment.

Let's hope Branagh was well-compensated, at least. To quote his favorite author: No profit grows where is no pleasure taken.

The story might perhaps be adequate for an animated film for children, with Thor, Odin and the others played by piglets. In the arena of movies about comic book superheroes, it is a desolate vastation.

Though slightly perfunctory at times, Thor is a funny and well-judged introduction to the character. It could have been far Norse.

This is eminently missable, though the mosaic design of Asgard, Thor's mythical realm, is pretty cool.

Drab, bloated and stuck together with special effects that look like high-end Microsoft screensavers.
