Thor is a Marvel Superhero with a hammer named Mjolnir. Since 900 AD The Asgardians and the Frost Giants had been at war. During one of these wars, King Odin rescued a little boy and raised him as his own. His name was Loki. Growing up their father taught them about the Frost Giants and then lets them know that only one of them can be king. Fast forward a few years and Thor is being crowned while Loki looks on. While this celebration is going on, a frost giant gets into Asgard but is quickly killed by the Destroyer. Thor, being the ruler he is, decides to visit Jotunheim to “discuss” this with the frost giant. The Asgardians had made peace with all this and had been many years since a war between the two. Thor heads to Jotunheim and sends them back into a war. Odin comes to the groups rescue, but when they get back he bans Thor down to Earth along with his hammer, but makes sure to say that whosoever wields the hammer, and is worth of it, shall have the power of Thor.

Thor is found by a group of scientist and spends a few days trying to get used to our ways. He meets a girl, Jane and falls in love with her. He doesn’t have his hammer so they go to a site where a satellite has supposedly crashed, which was actually where the hammer came down. The government also finds out and SHIELD ends up coming and taking Thor into custody. Back in Asgard, Loki finds out he is not what he thinks he is, he is not a pure Asgardian. Odin admits to him that they took him from Jotunheim. Suddenly Odin falls into a coma, and Loki becomes the active king. Loki has been working with the Frost Giants all along. He opens up the gate and lets the frost giants come into Asgard. He was able to do this because Heimdall, the keeper of the gate, had been frozen by Loki.

Back on Earth the giant destroyer robot comes down, under Loki’s control, and destroys everything in its path to get to Thor. Thor saves his friends which is enough selflessness that his hammer comes back to him since he is now worthy of its power. With Thor back to himself, he destroys the Destroyer and returns back to Asgard. One of Heimdalls last acts was opening up the portal to allow Thor back in. Loki and Thor battle it out in Jotunheim.

Odin comes out of his coma and while both of his boys are hanging off the Bifrost Bridge, Odin makes his choice and saves his true son, Thor. Loki disappears under the bridge, into the land of no return.
Life goes back to normal on Earth even though Thor misses Jane he stays in Asgard to hold his King title. At the end of the credits you see one of the scientist talking to another SHIELD agent and they open a briefcase and find what could be the ultimate source of unlimited power. Loki appears, invisible to the guys, and takes not that this is worth a look.

I loved this movie and its a really good family movie. We were able to watch it as a family and I wasn’t worried about it being to gory or over the top for my little girls. If you love Marvel or Superheros and looking for a great family movie, I highly suggest Thor. You can purchase your own copy of Thor by visiting here.
