Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

This movie is a decent-enough fantasy and coming-of-age story. There isn't much new in the over-the-top fantasy dialogue and the battle scenes. And yet, even with the cliches in the dialogue and action, Thor: Tales of Asgard does carry a universal message about the desires of teens to grow up and prove themselves, even as their parents aren't ready to take that chance, even among gods.

This movie does flirt with some risque innuendo, as well as excessive drinking on the part of some of the characters -- none of which really adds much to the overall story. Such action makes this movie best for older tweens and teens, especially those interested in fantasy and Marvel comics.
