Thor (2011) | Spoiler Review and Lessons Learned #27

Thor was a great introduction to our first intergalactic Marvel Superhero (if you don’t count Silver Surfer).  We enjoyed the movie, seeing the Warriors 3 and Lady Sif, along with Hawkeye and Agent Coulson.  Fun stuff, and you get a glimpse of the comedy that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) eventually brought forth in Ragnarok.

 

Lessons Learned from Thor

If they don’t heed your warning, feel free to use your weapon.

  • It was great seeing Darcy (unlike everyone else holding a weapon in every other movie) use the taser on Thor before he could get too close.

It’s never too late to do the right thing.

  • Everything seemed too hopeless for Thor after being cast out of Asgard. But he does the right thing and becomes a better person and tries to save the townspeople. He also sacrifices himself for the lives of his friends and everybody else, and this makes him worthy of regaining his power and Mjolnir.

Wise king’s never seek war, but must always be ready for it.

  • This was a great line that was revisited in Ragnarok.

Know which rules to break. Don’t break orders.

  • Yes, there’s big consequences for breaking orders.

If you want someone to do something, make them think it’s their idea.

  • Loki totally “inceptioned” Thor.

Proverbs 16:18 – Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.

  • Thor’s pride got in the way, but he grew from this experience.
