Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Let's hope Branagh was well-compensated, at least. To quote his favorite author: No profit grows where is no pleasure taken."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"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."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Though slightly perfunctory at times, Thor is a funny and well-judged introduction to the character. It could have been far Norse."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"Thor is terrific fun! It's aware of its own silliness but made with complete integrity and heart. The film is also beautifully designed and very well performed. A great summer blockbuster!"
‑ Will Chadwick, We Got This Covered
"Winking, self-mocking, fun..."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Thor is on much safer ground here on Earth. The tone is immediately different: more relaxed; comic, not cosmic."
‑ Tom Charity,
"A giant notch up is Hiddleston, who'd make a good Edmund in King Lear: You register the chip on his shoulder rather than the villainy."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Strikes a mighty blow to the summer blockbuster season and will charge up audiences just like the first 'Iron Man.'"
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Tempering its sweeping scope with wit, humor, and just a little dose of dramatics, Thor is a super-charged fantasy epic that can stand alone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe."
‑ Alaina O'Connor, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Branagh and co have taken one of the least relatable superheroes and turned his story ... into a hugely enjoyable, funny and visually spectacular film"
‑ Matt Looker,
"There is pleasure to be plundered from some of the battle scenes, especially when Thor is confronting ice monsters with blood-red eyes, and from the culture clash that resounds when he descends to present-day Earth..."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"This is eminently missable, though the mosaic design of Asgard, Thor's mythical realm, is pretty cool."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Drab, bloated and stuck together with special effects that look like high-end Microsoft screensavers."
‑ Luke Buckmaster, Crikey
"Hemsworth gives the Thunder God all the spark he needs."
‑ Joe Gross, Austin American-Statesman
""Thor" reminded me a lot of the "Iron Man" films. They are not particularly great, but they are highly entertaining with their explosive action sequences and fascinating characters."
‑ Jeff Beck,
