THOR & LOKI: BLOOD BROTHERS
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.

Total Feature Running Time: +/- 72 MinutesOur Review:
I must admit that I am a fan of Japanese comics so I haven't read any of the Marvel comics before nor am I familiar with the Marvel Universe. Despite the fact that I haven't read any of the comics, I still thought this was a great DVD. The story line of Thor and Loki is really interesting and I found that their personality flaws and emotions to be identifiable. Not only that there are struggles within themselves (for Thor and Loki), the struggles to rule the kingdom is also complex. I have been told by friends who are loyal Marvel fans that this animation DVD stays true to graphic novels. This is a must have DVD for all Marvel fans. Even if you are not a fan, you will still enjoy this DVD, I know I did :).
