* Thor trying and failing to lift Mjölnir halfway through the movie. He walks up, a big grin on his face, and grabs the hammer...but he can't pull it out. He tries for a few minutes before falling to his knees and [[SkywardScream screaming incoherently at the sky]]. It's hard to describe the exact look on his face -- it's like a soldier coming home to his wife, looking forward to his favorite meal, and finding out she doesn't even remember him.

** You'll notice while Loki is fighting, Loki is going all out but Thor is obviously holding back. Loki just assumes Thor is toying with him...Thor just doesn't want to hurt his little brother.

Added DiffLines:

* When Thor exclaims that he will not fight his brother, Loki tells him: "I'm not your brother, I never was". To Thor, who is still completely oblivious, it sounds as if Loki is only denying him. But there is something sad about the way Loki says this line, especially since he says "I am not your brother", not "You're not my brother". He sounds less furious and more bitter.

* Odin's reaction to Thor's CallingTheOldManOut. It's so easy to forget that he's not just a king, he's a father who was terrified when his sons were [[AdultFear nearly killed going to the Jötunheim]] and therefore [[AngerBornOfWorry furious that Thor would put them (including his own younger brother) in such danger]]. Also Thor's look of shocked disbelief that [[IHaveNoSon his own father casts him out]]! The tremor in Odin's voice during this sequence cements it.

*** The music during this scene ("Letting Go") could not be fitting better. You can ''feel'' the desperation by just listening to the piece separately.

*** The music during this scene ("Letting Go") could not be fitting better. It is almost painful to listen to. You can ''feel'' the desperation by just listening to the piece separately.


Added DiffLines:

** During the same scene, when Odin tells Thor that he is "unworthy of the loved ones [he] betrayed", the camera cuts to Thor and Odin being in the foreground with Loki in the background between them, looking sadly up to Thor.

*** It's pretty sad for Odin, too. His final words to Loki before Loki let go probably ring through his head constantly. If he had just said something more compassionate and understanding, perhaps Loki would have accepted him to some degree but instead, Odin's final words were all he needed to hear to sink into the abyss. Made only worse by what happens [[Film/TheAvengers after]], because he probably saw everything and knew that in some way, he was always going to have to bear some of that blame.

*** Thor thanking Loki for coming to see him. We know that Loki's manipulating him, but he still sees him as his brother and loves him. Poor guy.
