I went to the theater prepared to suffer through "Thor" and left the building wondering when the sequel will be ready for release.
I have to think that the great Shakespearian director, Kenneth Branagh, made this production special. There are elements from adventure tales and science fiction stories you have seen before, but this film requires the characters and the audience to engage in constant wrestling with moral values.
The key question for Thor and the audience is not what can be done, but what should be done.
I found myself rooting for Thor, I cared about his friends and I admired the values that many of the characters fought to uphold.
When you find yourself involved at this level, you know you are sitting in the right theater at the multiplex.
