If you love the Marvel franchise, Thor: the Dark World generally follows the same formula with great action, but no shortage of flaws. There are some major struggles with tone, where big emotional moments are followed by bizarre comedy that seems to come out of nowhere. Most of the comedy was good (especially the excellent cameo by Captain America), but this franchise would seriously benefit from a departure by Kat Dennings, who completely takes you out of the movie and does not fit into this world at all. The plot is for the most part all over the place, with key plot points being shoehorned everywhere and certainly quite messy. When the fighting kicks in, all of that is briefly forgotten and those are the parts of the movie we are more than happy to pay for. Thor: The Dark World is very disorganized, but finds its footing more as it progresses, with Hemsworth and Hiddleston nailing it as the Asgardian brothers.
