The earth scenes needed to be developed further. Hemsworth and Portman had such great chemistry and we needed their relationship to be fleshed out further in order to make Thor's transformation more plausible. All the elements were in place for this to be absolutely epic, instead it was just good. Branaugh is not directing the sequel and I wonder if Feige stuck his hand in the cookie jar and influenced the running time.
I liked all the performances in this and it's good fun, but the bottom line in this - this franchise definitely has the potential to be so much more. And Hiddleston owns the film.
Finally saw it. Really liked it. Frost Giants looked like Power Rangers villains. Seeing Thor do mortal things was amusing and slightly jarring. Fights were great. Loki was not as hammy as I would have liked him, but he was fine for this film. Anthony Hopkins as Odin kicked ass.

I finally saw Thor on Bluray. I admit, I'm not a huge Thor guy, but I thought the movie was really well done. All the non-Earth scenes I thought were great. Asgard was really impressive. The earth stuff was a little weak and there should have been more of an arc for Thor actually coming around and understanding what it's going to take to lead, but overall really not a bad movie.
I'm curious, is Natalie Portman going to be in Avengers?
