Hetjur Valhallar - Þór (2011)
Here is a good-natured and fun animated film about the Norse god Thor, and his inception as a deity after finding the magic hammer Mjølner. Although Thor himself is portrayed as a customary fantasy hero (he has the abilities and courage, but doesn't know it), many other aspects of this Icelandic feature is refreshingly atypical - providing good fun for young and old. Odin, for example, is portrayed as a gormandising, lazy coward, and offers very little help for our young protagonist. The animations are fine, without excelling, and although the narrative may be a little difficult to follow for the younger segment of the audience, there is always something of interest going on along the way.
