“Events will prove otherwise. Fans of the comic may notice some deviation from the origin story, but if that’s going to prevent you from enjoying this, you might be taking things a little too seriously. The character development, what there is of it, occurs in a flash as fleeting as lightning from Asgard. But you don’t go to “Thor” looking for Shakespeare, even if Branagh is directing.”
The fish out of water story is the best part. I hated the CGI – Asgard and Jotunheim sucked. Natalie Portman has no presence. OTOH, I have a man crush on Chris Hemsworth. The SHIELD agent turned unlikable.
