Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Thor...

Violence: Battle sequences and fights occur throughout this film with characters being tossed and thrown. More intense depictions include an impaling, a stabbing and a character whose eye is badly damaged. Some blood and injuries are seen, but they are not overly explicit. A character is shot with a Taser and becomes unconscious. A fantastical fire blazing character razes a town and causes a great deal of damage.

Sexual Content: A man is seen topless and a woman displays unspoken admiration for his physique. A man and woman kiss.

Language: Terms of deity and a few mild profanities are used.

Alcohol/Drug Use: Two characters, including the protagonist, drink heavily in a comedic scene.

LEGO was different when I was a kid. The blocks came in a handful of colors and basic shapes. Wheels and gears were cutting edge. Instructions were minimal or non-existent. Or at least that’s how I remember it. My siblings and I would spend hours constructing our own version ...

Shakespeare meets Tolkien meets Epic Adventure

“A Thunderous Adventure Takes Form on the new Marvel Release”

Director Kenneth Branagh takes a story of Norse Gods, sibling rivalry and a quest to understand humanity in the Marvel/Paramount release - “Thor.”

Chris Hemsworth offers a breakout performance as the fallen God of Thunder in an adventure that offers a decent balance of drama, action and humor. It does have its share of action, but not in the same way of a “Spiderman” or “Ironman.” It’s more in the form of a “Narnia” or “Rings.”

“Thor” is really a Character study that transcends the Superhero genre - I applaud Kenneth Branagh for his brilliance in taking on this chapter in the Marvel Universe. Later this summer we will be able to check out the first Avenger, ?Captain America? in theatres as well.

The supporting cast includes Academy Award winners Sir Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman.

“Thor” gets an “A” on my report card.

**A little trivia *Stay ?til the end of the credits for a tease for ?The Avengers? and also look for a cameo in the film of future ?Avenger? Hawkeye.

This was a really good movie. Quite a bit of Sci-fi action violence, but nothing gory. Minimal sexual content and language as well. Some drinking, but it’s mostly comedic. Overall; Thor gets an A from me. Peace!
