Thor IMAX 3D

This movie was a must see for me being a long time comic fan and it was a pleasure to see Chris Hemsworth make the transition from the father of James T. Kirk to the brash and arrogant son of Odin. The movie gives us Thor's fall from grace and the reclaiming of Mjolnir as he overcomes his own shortfalls to be the god he is destined to be. Outside of the expected cameo of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury to tie the movie in to next year's The Avengers film we have a dream cast of Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Colm Feore as the King of the Frost Giants, Ray Stevenson as Volstagg and Tom Hiddleston as the delicious trickster Loki. I don't believe this movie would have been nearly as good as it is under any other director then Kenneth Branagh whose track record with Shakespeare's works is second to none. Outside of the signature Thor fighting poses from the comic page, the best images to be realized are those of the glorious Asgard which must be seen in IMAX 3D and so worth the surcharge.
