QUICK TAKE:
Action: Halfway across the cosmos, the arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the realm of Asgard and banished to modern-day Earth where he becomes our protector.
PLOT:
Across the universe, the fantastic realm of Asgard is ruled by Odin (ANTHONY HOPKINS) and Frigga (RENE RUSSO) who knows that he will one day cede control of his kingdom to one of this two sons. Thor (CHRIS HEMSWORTH) is the greater warrior, but he is arrogant and often reckless. Loki (TOM HIDDLESTON) is the more cerebral one, but he is prone to all sorts of mischief. In fact, he secretly plots with his people's sworn enemy to seize the throne from his brother.

After a sneak attack by the rival Frost Giants led by King Laufey (COLM FEORE), orchestrated by the power-hungry Loki, Thor disobeys his father's wishes and ventures into the Frost Giants' realm with warriors Volstagg (RAY STEVENSON), Sif (JAIMIE ALEXANDER), Fandral (JOSH DALLAS), and Hogun (TADANOBU ASANO) to wage war. Odin eventually comes to the rescue and banishes Thor from Asgard to the distant planet of Earth.

Stripped of his powers, Thor befriends a team of scientists studying wormholes and atmospheric phenomenon comprised of Jane Foster (NATALIE PORTMAN), Erik Selvig (STELLAN SKARSGARD), and Darcy Lewis (KAT DENNINGS). He also runs afoul of a top-secret government organization known as SHIELD, represented by the sardonic Agent Coulson (CLARK GREGG), who has cordoned off a section of the New Mexico desert where Mjolnir, the almighty hammer of Thor has landed. Back in Asgard, Loki continues to consolidate his power, conjuring up The Destroyer and sending him to Earth to kill Thor and all who stand in his way.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes. It is the latest Marvel Comics character to be given the big-screen treatment and lays the ground for next summer's "The Avengers."
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
