Thor: The Dark World Reviews

Page 1 of 12

Thor: The Dark World survives purely on the charisma of its insanely attractive cast and periodic bursts of good humor.

"A decided improvement in the balance department. Not only do we get more in the way of humor, we get more convincing, exciting action, as well as a few welcome surprises."

The Dark World is more of a missed opportunity than a complete failure, but it's disappointing nonetheless.

[Director Alan Taylor] is helped by Tom Hiddleston's sleekly malevolent performance as Thor's untrustworthy brother Loki, a more engaging and complex figure than Chris Hemsworth's monosyllabic Thor.

Populated by bland characters and saturated with tedious dialogue.

There's more action this time around, and less deliberate alignment of the Marvel universe. The result is a film that flows better and gives the characters a little more room to be themselves.

An escapist comic-book movie, without apology.

Another dull, achingly generic story about saving the world.

Thankfully, Taylor and his cast create enough laughs and just enough thrilling set pieces to save the project from being crushed under the weight of its own dreary backstory.

Comic-book superheroes have become so angst-ridden in recent years it's a relief to be around one who has hung on to his sense of humour.

It's wider in scope than the first effort but just as funny.

Once the action picks up, Thor: The Dark World will satisfy Marvel fans and casual viewers alike.

The result is a good Thor movie when post-Avengers we wanted a great one.

It's sad to say, but Thor: The Dark World marks Marvel's first serious misfire.

Thor: The Dark World is a good model of how superheroes can save the world without forced gravitas, and have fun doing it.

Enough with the appetite-whetting experiments. Just wake me when The Avengers: Age of Ultron is here.

The movie doesn't go nearly as in-depth as we would like it to. But that's ok, because it has enough fun on the excursion to be thoroughly enjoyable.

A wildly uneven but entertaining sequel to one of Marvel Comics' most enduring franchises.
