Editorial Reviews

The great halls of Asgard have fallen silent since a new king has overtaken the throne. His name is Loki, son of almighty Odin, brother to the Thunder God, Thor. Once a powerful trickster, the God of Mischief, Loki now rules a grand kingdom with little regard for its subjects. His only thoughts are focused inward, toward the origins of his own pain and suffering. To quell his torment and to gain the respect he feels he so rightfully deserves, Loki must now execute the prisoner chained deep within the dungeons of Asgard, the one man who has ever shown him love. His own brother.

Adapted from the acclaimed miniseries Loki, from Robert Rodi and Esad Ribic, Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers takes a powerful look inside the minds of two legendary nemeses, shedding light, like never before, on the depths of Thor and Loki’s hatred, and love, for one another

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone but definitely for Loki fans February 13, 2012
After reading the mixed reviews about this movie, I still wanted to see it for myself. Some people seem to really not like it at all while others loved it. After seeing it once I would have given it 4 stars. I really liked it the first time around, but honestly, after seeing it a few times, I have to say I absolutely love it and will give it 5 stars. Understand, however that this movie isn't for everyone. If you are looking for a typical Thor vs. Loki beatdown, forget it. This is not about watching a fight or match. All we need to know is that Loki finally schemed successfully and defeated Thor.

The movie is pretty much about getting into Loki's head. The voice actor who voices old man Loki is perfect. He doesn't seem to have any other credits on IMDB except this, but whoever he is he sounds very professional. He sounds like he's done Shakespeare all his life and that's perfect for this. I absolutely love the dialogue and Loki's monologues. I love the way the Norse mythology has been brought into this story. In fact, in many ways its more Norse than Marvel. The Warriors Three do not even appear in it, (they are a Stan Lee/Jack Kirby creation).

The animation style is okay. I think its better than a motion comic. Its not all that colorful, but it has its own style. I only wish Loki didn't have to look ugly. I hate that. He looks much older than Thor or Odin, which makes no sense. We know Loki is mischievous and the trickster and God of Lies, etc. I don't think its necessary to make him look ugly or decrepit to prove that he's the "bad guy".

If you are a fan of Loki's, this is worth checking out. While his childhood doesn't necessarily justify his bad behavior, we can understand its roots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great example of an emerging medium July 9, 2011
I have been aware of motion comics for a few years now, mostly from the Watchmen motion comic put together when that film came out. Like a lot of people, I was really put off by it. It wasn't good. Didn't do justice to the story and it didn't do justice to the comics medium. My thought was "why does this exist?" The answer seemed to be it existed as an alternative to the "effort" of reading.

This is the prejudice I carried as other motion comics appeared as tie ins for shows like Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Inception, and Sucker Punch. These grew a little better, but I wasn't moved.

That is not until a few months ago when I saw other Marvel and DC efforts with motion comics. I got really excited and began seeing the possibilities for motion comics as a genre. I believe the first one to really get me was IRON MAN: Extremis.

After that, I devoured everything else I could find, going from X-Men: Gifted to the Spider-Woman motion comic to Thor & Loki when that appeared on i-Tunes. There were also some black and white Batman motion comics as well as some for Batgirl that were less inspiring but still excellent.

However my excitment still lies chiefly with the Marvel efforts because they were the most involved, the most exciting and atmospheric. Textured. Artistic. All of those descriptions come together in the drama Thor & Loki, which finally produces Motion Comics' first strong DRAMA. It's worth a look.

And I truly hope readers share my excitement and help support the medium, as I think it is and will be the most supportive and respectful to comic artists and painters that is likely to come along bridging the gap to video screens.

It certainly shows the potential for artists who wish to produce pictorial or photographic narratives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespearean Thor : High Comic Drama Exquisiteness September 21, 2012
This is the highwater mark of motion comics. It seems as if all voice actors, motion animators, and the director were inspired by Rodi & Ribic's incomparable character study and highly aesthetic rendering of, through Loki's soliloquys mostly, what he and Thor mean to one another as well as just how fated and perhaps unfair their destinies are. Though Marvel Knights Motion Comics had their work cut out for them, they succeeded admirably. Wonderfully even. This is the first motion comic I can call a beautiful work. It's not that the others aren't good, it's just that this is the one that truly pushes the envelope; when the letter's finally read, it announces its mastery to all. Amotz Plessner (remember his name if his work on this is any indication of what kind of work he typically puts out there) creates a hauntingly epic, otherworldly musical score that had me buying into this from the outset. And when the rest of the dvd delivered, I was totally sold. The voice actors enunciate their parts so well that they are all simply exquisite; even the minor characters become memorable. A huge plus for your purchase price is the lengthy documentary of Rodi & Ribic's discussion of their graphic novel as well as how that thought their work was transferred to a different medium. (They were well pleased . . .) You also get commentary. You couldn't have put together two such great creators on a title, nor could you have put together a better production than what you'll find on the Thor & Loki : Blood Brothers digital motion comic. Look at the other reviews, and you'll see that most everyone agrees. This is ten dollars very well spent.
