Better than the first one, in my opinion. The CGI and the acting was absolutely excellent. I was captivated by the film from the very beginning. Tom Hiddleston as Loki—WOW, just wow. And of course, Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and all the other actors involved were amazing too. Some people are saying that the plot was uneven and convoluted, but I disagree. It was very entertaining and well made. 5/5 stars, definitely. I'm so excited to watch Thor: Ragnarok!

Not as good as the first and it does seem a little disjointed at times, but Thor and Loki have great chemistry together. It's a fun, action-adventure comic book movie. Great for a rainy weekend. But I'm still not sure why they push the Natalie Portman relationship. Jaime Alexander is far more interesting as Sif.

“Thor: The Dark World” is the second film in Marvel’s ‘Thor’ franchise. The film starts a few months after the events of the first film with Jane Foster and Darcy Lewis in London, England. While investigating a gravitational anomaly, Jane is sucked through a portal to another world, and becomes infected by a weapon known as the Aether. After she is returned to Earth, Jane is reunited with Thor, who takes her to his home realm (Asgard). While there, Jane and Thor learn that millennia old villians known as Dark Elves are reawakening and intending to destroy the Nine Realms. Thor and Jane enlist the help of Thor’s adopted and arrested brother Loki, and they set off to cure Jane and stop the Dark Elves.

“Thor: The Dark World” is a fantastic film. Its plot is interesting and captivating, and filled with enough twists and turns to keep audiences enthralled. The script is excellent, and it’s easy to see that a painstaking amount of detail went into the plot. Everything flows together in one big, fantasy/sci-fi pool of awesome. The dialogue in this film is the perfect blend of funny, heartbreaking, and character-specific (no one’s lines make them sound like another character). The actors and actresses all do a wonderful job of bringing their roles to life, and make their characters seem like real people. The soundtrack is breathtaking, and sets the fantastical mood for this film. The special effects in “Thor: The Dark World” really steal the show – they’re absolutely beautiful. The renditions of the Nine Realms are glorious eye candy, and the battle scenes are intricately choreographed.

The author of this review highly recommends “Thor: The Dark World” (it’s even one of her favourite Marvel movies!). It’s a beautiful, fun film, and it’s sure to wow any viewer. Due to some frightening scenes, the author of this review believes this film to be suitable for ages eleven and up.

I hate when people make movies about my people's gods. Who gives them that right I wonder? I guess they make movies about Jesus and the Christians have to put up with it...

Like others here, I was surprised how watchable this movie was. Not a bad action movie.
