Miranda Tate: Vengeance against the man who killed him, is simply a reward, for my patience. You see, it's the slow knife, the knife that takes it's time, the knife that waits years without forgetting, then slips quietly between the bones, that's the knife that cuts deepest.
Thor: The Dark World is not only a downright mess but it is also an insult to anyone who respects cinema as an artform. The script is a complete mess with many 'characters' being introduced to just move the plot along. Natalie Portman is reduced to what is an undeniable plot device (yet again serving women as a damsel in distress), serving zero purpose to a thing called 'acting'. The opening narration is laughable, with Sir Anthony Hopkins desperately trying to convey a sense of realism in a less than surreal world. Too many plots, too many characters. The villain is boring as hell, without any true motivation there is no emotional connection to the audience which creates one of the worst villains of recent memory. I'm not one to criticize a film for plot holes but dear god this film was filled with them, at an alarming rate. It seems the 'portal' device activated only when it was required. The only redeeming factors in this tragic mess was Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, that's it. This film had a big budget so I obviously expect good costumes, make-up and set design and we receive that but the cinematography is atrocious, rather than creating good photography the director of photography would rather choose to show off how much they spent on the set design (in true Marvel fashion). One of the biggest disappointments of 2013, Thor: The Dark World is a mess from start to finish barely creating any redeemable qualities.
