Review on Thor: Halloween principle - Choose not the expensive actors, but the suitable ones
Thor has got great success since its theatrical release. It has received nearly 80% of positive critic response after its release. This superhero film based on comic book character of the same name published by Marvel Comics and is the fourth film released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, and Stellan Skarsgård with Kenneth Branagh directing a script by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz, and Don Payne.
The characters in this movie reflect the Halloween industry principle: select the most suitable actors, rather than expensive ones. The director Kenneth Branagh is best known for directing and starring in several film adaptations of William Shakespeare's plays. He handles all the effects work with aplomb, and treats the property with respect, even though the movie's tongue is consistently planted firmly in its cheek. Nothing is ever taken too seriously.
Chris Hemsworth has a nice, easygoing presence, and is hugely likeable in the lead role. But before Thor, he was in fact complete unknown to public, even not as well known as Tobey Maguire. Tom Hiddleston was also nobody even though he graduated from Eaton and Cambridge. But in this movie, the two handsome freshmen both get excellent performance and have been greatly popular.
And also, when Thor was about to start shooting, the Black Swan had not been finished. Natalie Portman arrived in New Mexico desert once she took off the dance shoes and turned to be a completely fresh and pure beauty from an evil black swan. And if Anthony Hopkins was ten years younger, he might have transferred the crabbed murderous characteristic to be the invisible mighty of Odin, but for sure he would not be able to reflect the aging and tiredness under the invisible mighty. Now, to the 74 years old Anthony Hopkins, everything happens without extra effort.
All the cast and the directors of this movie make it quite clear that Halloween is choosing the right actors, but not those expensive famous people.
