Overall, The Dark World offers plenty of fun for longtime fans and for newcomers, though the final product will still keep the Thor franchise inbetween Iron Man and Captain America in terms of total quality.
A massively enjoyable film that course-corrects the missteps of the original and delivers on big action, grittier subject matter, and a less pretentious take on the sometimes prohibitively dense Thor canon.
When Marvel brought in Alan Taylor, the director of Game of Thrones, to invigorate the Thor franchise, many hoped for a breast-bearing, dwarf-battling, blood-spurting melodrama -- with capes and hammers. Sadly, it was not to be.
