Of course it looks awesome!
Brutally Honest: A Look at the Thor Trailer
this movie is wrong best thing about the movie is the destroyer armor everything looks so bad lets hope when he gets back his power he can show some strength feat in it as well they way this look is you won't get your moneys worth until the end that is when all the action will take place which is a very bad way of doing thor
I just finished watching the full trailer for myself and I'm pretty impressed. I do still think this movie will be hit and miss for audiences, even if they do a really good job on it. I didn't know what to think of the big walking armor/robot-thing towards the end, but admittedly I'm no Thor buff.
I'm surprised that you liked the trailer so much Sara... :)
I like Thor, I've been reading the title on and off... so I am somewhat familiar with all these characters... of course not as familiar as I am with the X-Men or Spider-Man... but I do have to say that this trailer looks awesome!
I am even more excited about this movie now... and like I've said before Marvel Studios has not disappointed me in the three movies that they have released so I am pretty sure they will do a good job with this movie too!
The trailer was a little cheesy but they seem to be trying to meld the mythological origins of Thor into a more real and contemporary setting. So I have to give them credit for their creativity there.
I have hope, it looks cheesy and probably will be in many places but if they manage to encapsulate the feeling of the comics into the film and make a genuinely entertaining feature then I think we can call it a success.
I'm growing totally excited about this movie every time I watch the trailer. I was very afraid that they'd either go waaaaay too mystical in the movie and couldn't easily combine it with Iron Man, or on the other hand ground the movie too much in reality and take away from the original character. But it seems they found a nice thin line in the middle.
In an attempt to appease rabid modern fan boys who prefer the Ultimates version of Thor (without Donald Blake) "grounded in reality", Branagh has made Thor look generic. That is, the trailer gives us such a straight forward run the gauntlet story without any imagination.
Asgard looks like Oz 2010. The costumes look more like the last Flash Gordon movie (where's the Queen soundtrack?). The fight scene against the SHIELD agents looked like something out of a WWE battle. Thor should just be able to throw these agents around like rag dolls not coming off the ropes with a drop kick.
Now, Branagh hellbent on giving the UK job market a boost "Harry Pottered" cast actors with stage play experience. Stage utilizes the ability to use your voice to create a presence with the delivery of lines in a flowing cadence. Hemsworth just sounded AWFUL. But he's beefy so the fan boys who just look at any resemblance will bite.
The only thing kept intact from Thor as we know him is the Destroyer. That looks fantastic. I wonder if that was due to the fact script writer Payne (Fantastic Four Rise of the Surfer) felt compelled because he got so much backlash for turning Galactus into a giant fart cloud.
And WHY does this movie need to be in 3-D!?!? In NYC, 3-D is $20 a ticket. It's bad enough it's $13 a ticket but add $7 for what?
Give me the Clash of the Titans remake any ol'day because as bad as it was, THAT has more adventure and excitement than Thor.
I'm actually look forward to Thor even more now. Still not so much on the Cap movie I cant let go the fact that Chris is the Human Torch and Captain America. I can let go being another hero some a different universe like Ryan being Deadpool and Green Lantern. but not to that co-exist in the same universe at the same time
