This movie wound up being a pleasant surprise for me, and I think it may even be one of my favorite superhero movies. To start out with Chris Hemsworth looks absolutely gorgeous. Thankfully they even gave us a seen or two of him without his shirt. Natalie Portman is really cute, and while I wasn't sure how she'd work in a superhero movie I think she does great here.
The movie felt very fast paced, and in some ways felt a little short. But I think it was a perfect length, just shorter than than what we're used to. Also there didn't seem to be a lot of drawn out fight scenes, which worked for me. (Don't worry though if this worries you because there were still enough for the boy to enjoy.)
Of course if you do see it, be sure you stay till after the credits so it can built towards the upcoming Avengers movies. I have to say after this one, I'm looking forward seeing Chris (and hopefully Natalie!) in that movie now more than ever!
