Thor was one of those movies that lead up to The Avengers, which, along with movies like Captain America, were pretty much just created and pumped out in order to give audiences a thorough enough background to be able to really enjoy the epic Avengers movie.
All that being said, and still understanding that this movie was likely just created as a base to help you understand the character, I still LOVED this movie for some reason.
First of all, you have to go into it realizing that the movie is a story about the god Thor. That means you can't go into it really expecting something that's going to be life-altering or heavily serious. It's a movie about Thor.
If you go into it realizing you're not supposed to be taking it incredibly seriously, it's a very enjoyable time. I really liked it, and I've watched it several times already. This didn't seem like a rushed movie to me at all, and it felt like there was a lot of attention dedicated to making this movie everything it was supposed to be.
You've probably seen it already, but if you haven't, add it to your queue! It's a fun time.
