The summer movie season officially begins with Thor, the big screen adaptation of Marvel Comics' God of Thunder. Peter Travers says that while Thor isn't quite as iconic as Iron Man, Spider-Man or the X-Men, the Kenneth Branagh-directed movie has style, humor and a Shakespearean grandeur. Also, it doesn't hurt that star Chris Hemsworth truly has the look of a 7-foot-tall hammer-wielding Norse god.
