Thor: The Dark World Reviews
I've made no secret of the fact that in the MCU, my favourite Avenger is Thor, so a new film was always going to be an easy ticket from me. And I can't work out if that bias is making me more critical of the film because I care so much, or less because I'm just happy it got made? I'll try to be as above board as possible.
Thor 2 is a spectacle, make no mistake. It has the appropriate mix of explosions, attractive people, monsters, humour, fighting, mesmerising visuals, sweet symbolism and heart-wrenching sorrow that can be expected from a decent super hero film. But beyond that, it doesn't really have much.
I know it sounds like it has a lot, and it honestly does, but I just couldn't help feeling in a quite a number of moments that the thing felt hurried. Maybe if there wasn't such a mad rush to get a Thor sequel out by the end of 2013, they could have spent a little more time fleshing out and filling in the script (not that it's a short movie, I mean the pre-production feels rushed) and better utilising director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Rome, Carnivale). There was a hint of the generic, amongst this otherwise splendid film.
malekith was just boring
and the only highlight of the movie was loki who i loved btw but its just sad that he outshadowed thor who was already a big part of the mcu in that time
