I live not far from Greenwich so I found it really difficult to watch. Yes you have the three stops from Greenwich. You also have the fact that there is no underground stop in Greenwich. There is one at North Greenwich, but not Greenwich. All I kept thinking was it's going to take ages for the council to start cleaning this up. They'll more likely bitch and complain that it's being called Greenwich and not Royal Greenwich.

I found it really hard to connect with the story in general as I found it boring and as someone else has said LOTR-like. I kept asking myself am I dreaming this or am I actually watching a movie of Thor vs Teletubbies? I kept waiting for them to say Eh-oh and again, again.

The only interesting bit of the film was the stinger in the end credits.

In the trailers before the film they showed the trailer for Captain America 2.... That looks cack as well.

Really good fun film. The atmospherics and Wagnerian feel were done superbly. Action was good and the right level of knowingness and humour.

Wasn't bothered about Charing Cross to Greenwich in 3 stops - one presumes the makers needed to use a station name that would resonate moer with non-Brits. And it really was just a throw away gag to get Thor using the London underground.

Yeah, forget Jane Foster. Thor and Loki are the real love story.

Just seen this. Awful. Wondering if I saw the same film everyone else did?

Too LOTR-like, ponderous, slow, disjointed, didn't enjoy constantly flitting between worlds. London elements looked cheap and embarrassing. Yet another 'prison break' scene. Jeez. I'd read there was an abundance of humour / funny quips. Only the fan girls in the audience seemed to enjoy the 'jokes'. Bored of Loki and robbed of a real development to the character. Cheap.

Natalie Portman seemed bored, the loss of one character was 'meh' and Kat Denning's Darcy was an annoyance. The less said about nutjob Selvig, the better.

Never considered Thor 1 a masterpiece, but still far superior to the sequel. Surprised it was only 110 mins-ish. Felt like 3 hrs long. As for the Walter Mitty 10 minute promo. Wtf?!

Rating. 2/5.
i totally agree with you, thought it was awful. and i loved the first film.

i think natalie portman was forced into doing this - both she and anthony hopkins looked embarrassed.

the 'comedy' (selvieg, kat dennings and her intern) was witless in the extreme.

everything in it seemed like an afterthought

I wanted to slap Loki by the end of it and not because he's a baddie. As usual he's an irritant. Can't see the appeal in him. Can't wait for avengers 2 - Loki free

Wow, just saw subtitled version of it at Cinema, so enjoy it so much!

Love the opening with battle! What a battle!

I like that this film is not Superhero film, but Sci-fi war film!

Sorry if anyone mention it, but it nice to see Korg (of Planet Hulk) lookalike.

Loki was sooo great in it! Love his lines, and calm when

I imagine Thor 3 is probably a given if it hasn't already been announced.

$327m worldwide on its second Int./first US weekend is great business. $600m looks certain so it's a question of how much beyond that it can draw (boxofficemojo.com)

Will Thor hammer Man of Steel ($663m)?

^ Yes, really. Some people (myself included) thought MoS would do a fair bit better than that.

A great film! Hemsworth was good, I loved the Heimdall action, the cast were all great (except Hopkins (by-the-numbers) and Eccleston (routine)). The director really made
the action scenes engaging. Also

The post-credit trailer was interesting :

Really good film IMO.

A worthy addition to the Marvel family.

I also thought Stan Lee's cameo was the best on yet!!

Saw this today and thoroughly enjoyed the LOTR v Star Wars bonkersness !!

Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston bounce off each other superbly.

Not keen on the human side if the equation but could watch all the Asgardians all day long.

Liked also that Asgard looked more real.

Rollicking good fun...and I thought it slightly better than the first Thor and miles better than that other bloke with a red capes last two films.

funny thing is, a mate of mine rang me at the weekend to say that he watch this and found it utterly abysmal - the worst film he's seen this year and even worse than Iron Man 3 (which we both hated).

I obviously had to go and see it to see if was really that bad and watched it yesterday. I enjoyed it, so i'm certainly going to attempt to find out why my friend hated it so much.
