I went with no1 son and my wife to see Thor in 3D at our local cinema.  I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.  On the one hand, Thor was one of the comic-book heroes from my boyhood so I was looking forward to seeing him smashing his way across the screen.  On the other hand, other films dealing with the interactions between gods and mankind haven’t worked very well so I was wondering just how that was going to be handled.
  I needn’t have worried.  We all enjoyed the film, which had just enough character development and plot to keep cynics at bay, and enough special effects to satisfy even the younger generation, without going over the top and making the gods seem like cartoon characters.  It even had moments of genuine humour thrown in.
  Go and see it, if you’ve got the chance.  I think you’ll find it’s better than you might be led to expect.
