Thor: The Dark World Reviews
As superhero movies go, this is underwhelming stuff. ...Only enjoyable in spurts.
... the shape-shifting Loki is the only character who makes himself new and interesting. When he is around, 'Thor: The Dark World' becomes a different film altogether. You wish there was more of him.The rest of it is metal clanking.
You'll be hard pressed to find another hero so totally, awesomely Super.
In the Marvel movie-verse, it is hammer time again. A $200 million-plus son-et-lumiere spectacle, Thor is recommended for those with a taste for a decidedly funny fantasy.
Ardent fans (who should stay through the credits) will likely be satiated by the pleasing enough Thor: The Dark World. But perhaps at this point, even diehards may wish for something more from a Marvel equation that often subtracts humanity.
This movie is also about sibling rivalry as well as a long-distance love story with an intergalactic twist. Don't miss this one.
Thor rises to the occasion, he flies, but doesn't quite soar! Fans won't be disappointed though.
The focus here is not so much about narrating an original adventure as it is about how engagingly the film narrates a predictable storyline. The climax as well as its build-up make for all-out fun.Bring on Thor 3, but serve it with a few surprise spins.
...is not such a bad outing, you wish there was more though, not in terms of time but content.
...has the same problems that Iron Man 3 did — it’s a mess, and it shows. The narrative is all over the place, catering to the dumbest possible audience. From jarring editing to tonal shifts, there is no semblance of flow or continuity to be found in Thor 2.
All in all, a good comic-book film. Definitely worth catching.
Audience Reviews for Thor: The Dark World
The overall dumbness, the ridiculousness and contradicting nature of the plot, and the non-helping dry humor are what causes Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World to slip into a territory unseen in the MCU so far (as of Phase II) but which are only second to the marvelously annoying Nicole Kidman and Kat Dennings and their respective characters. TN.
Lower your expectations , its enjoyable but not great though.
Thor 2 may not be the finest film to come from the Marvel Universe, but Thor: The Dark World still offers plenty of the humor and high-stakes action that fans have come to expect.A wildly uneven but entertaining sequel to one of Marvel Comics' most enduring franchises.
MY REVIEW: Thor Lights Up Again!!
Thor is charismatic, ideal, no nonsense superhero as evident in his first outing played by Chris Hemsworth. In his awaited return after The Avengers, he takes the legacy further. His loved one is cool Jane Foster played beautifully by talented Natalie Portman. But the most lovable character remains his cunning, clever, cool, likable evil brother Loki played by Tom Hiddleston. In fact he is my second favorite villain after Joker of The Dark Knight in todays superhero universe. Visual effects vary from fantastic to excellent to mind-blowing. Stakes are much higher this time, but movie never tries to take them too seriously. In fact there are lot of funny situations and one liners but this fun was overdone in the messy climax. Nevertheless, it is a fun ride during which you would like to enjoy lots of popcorn. Please note that once movie is over, wait, there will a mid post credit scene to give you a clue for Avengers 2 and one at the very end showing the actual last scene of the movie.
Great Story. Awesome Ending and Awesome Suspense.....
