The subtitle may be The Dark World, but the only dark things about this world are the long, dull speeches and terrible costumes. Any attempt at sub-RSC portentousness falls flat.

This is a movie that is definitely a sequel. That doesn't mean it's a bad movie, sequels can be good.

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.

Thor's second outing expands it's universe. Better than the first one. Mjolnir and all. [Full review in Spanish]

Overall, Thor: The Dark World is an entertaining, if inconsequential, action-fantasy with another great turn by Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

This feels like a really, really, expensive episode of Doctor Who. In a good way.

When Thor: The Dark World doesn't work-and it doesn't, far too frequently-it's when the writers and director take the whole thing much too seriously.

While Thor's journey may be the weakest of the Avengers' tales - this entry nevertheless improving upon the first - it remains essential to the context of the whole.

Save for Hiddleston's too-brief supporting turn, this is mighty forgettable stuff, a by-the-numbers sequel to what was already the slightest and least entertaining of the 'Avengers' components.
April 17, 2016
An astoundingly sleek sequel that delivers a steady stream of both rousing action and substantial laughs.

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

How long are you fans going to put up with this kind of slack nonsense?

...too little of the hammy delight of the original.

If you give it a chance, I guarantee it will win you over with its humor and charm.

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.

The superhero gets a second solo album with Thor: The Dark World, which manages to outpace the first Thor in terms of atonality and gobbledygook.

July 14, 2015
Don't worry about its grim title and galactic stakes. For all its self-seriousness, Thor: The Dark World is a very silly movie. And that's why it works.

Thor: The Dark World is uneven, but the combination of strong personalities, humor and clever battle choreography keeps the Marvel superhero movie formula from dragging.
