Of course, it’s not all about looking the part and Hemsworth certainly sells the cocky and arrogant Thor, that just wants to go out and battle some frost giants. His arrival into our world is marked by lots of humor, and seeing the mighty Thor getting taken down by a tazer or hit by a car while keeping a straight face takes some chops. The more emotional and chevalier moments, such as the final confrontation with Loki, are also capably delivered by Hemsworth. As a whole, the Thor franchise has a certain level of cheese involved, and some lines might sound like a bit too much, but it never becomes overwhelming.
The possibility of Loki reprising as the villain in the upcoming Avengers movie fills me with glee if they are planning on keeping this incarnation of him. His powers also lend themselves to some very neat visuals and scenes, and some very creative cool moments that will have you cheering for the “villain” of this piece.
