    I tuoghht it was good, but I tuoghht Iron Man was better. Hemsworth is a tad wooden at times, but while Tom Hiddleston is great as Loki. There were a few transitions where I was left wondering what got cut in between scene A and scene B, but it’s generally entertaining and Stellan Saarsgard was great in his supporting role. I didn’t quite buy Anthony Hopkins as Odin I suspect I’d have been happier with a more physically imposing actor in that role. But as you say of the current crop of superhero, this is not the worst, and it provided invaluable backstory to the Avengers movie. Which. Rocked. My. World. What can I say I’m a huge Whedon fan because his approach to heroic roles is always to start with a flawed individual, then lead them to conquer their flaws before conquering their foes. BTVS, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse they all had that element to them.
