Marvel's Thor gets its own (probably not so) awesome mockbuster

If you're not familiar with the term "mockbuster," it's when direct-to-DVD companies attempt to cash in on big movies by making similarly themed, inevitably shoddier flicks. Happens all the time. And so the Asgardian God of Thunder will also be in The Almighty Thor.

Theoretically, there's nothing wrong with these mockbusters. They're perfectly fine for a streaming-movie Friday night, when you're not looking for things like "depth" or "character" or "quality." Because, honestly, if that's always what you wanted, there'd be no market for The Almighty Thor, starring Cody Deal as Thor and Richard Grieco (!) as his nemesis, Loki.

Feast your eyes, y'all. You won't see anything like it ... unless you go see the real Thor, in which case, well, yeah.
