So, this is what Hemsworth does when he isn’t Thor, huh? I am a huge fan of unapologetically violent movies. I like the hard-hitting, adrenaline-pumping scenes, that at the end of the sequence, you realize you weren’t breathing. The more realistic it looks, the better. This movie was ALL THAT, and more.
