Thor The Dark World is more exciting and entertaining and with more surprises!
January 18, 2017
Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Good, if a little slow

While being slightly better than the first instalment, The Dark World still runs into some problems by having a very one-dimensional villain, too much forced humour meant to fill the runtime (like Iron Man 3) and a surprisingly short runtime for a film that has a lot of jumping around to do. The problem with having this short of a runtime is that it's hard to keep track of what's going on, some much of the plot is explained through quick dialogue scenes that it's easy to let half of it go right over your head. Lots of questions will be left in your head when you're done watching this film, and that's probably due to the fact that they had four (or more) writers in-charge (instead of just one, which would have made this a much more consistent film). Despite those gripes, this Thor film surprisingly still manages to shine with plenty of great action to offer, strong performances (from Hemsworth and Hiddleston especially), neat twists along the way and some very excellent humour scenes (despite there being a bit too much of it in the first-half, the second-half finds it's footing quite well, and there's a really funny gag during the final battle that made the whole theatre erupt). All-in-all, if you enjoyed the first Thor even just a wee bit, you'll certainly like this film, no question about that.

One of the worst mcu movies but still an enjoyable one

Thor: The Dark World is a movie that's less impressive than Thor 1 and gave me a hard time giving a grade. Once again, Tom Hiddleston as Loki is definitely the standout of this movie and the action includes some strong visuality. There's obviously some weird moments with a guy with underwater on,Malekith is very underdeveloped for a very odd movie, and although it didn't last long, I wish Loki didn't get stabbed and die. Overall, depends on what you're looking for,you might like/hate Thor 2.

Notably superior to the first movie and a decent follow-up to The Avengers, this entertaining film has a consistent plot, plenty of humor, an always charismatic Chris Hemsworth and also Tom Hiddleston stealing every scene he appears in as the deceitful god Loki.

Thoroughly enjoyable twaddle.

Not the best but immensely entertaining.

My biggest Marvel guilty pleasure. Not a good movie by most means, but provides some great escapist entertainment and situations.

Thor The Dark World is just awful The plot is a sloppily written mess, The action sequences were extremely uninventive and generic, The acting from everyone besides Chris Hemsworth And Tom Hiddleston was quite wooden, The films comedic relief (Kat Denning's) is fucking hair ripping inducing the annoyance level was well over my own personal limit with that aspect and overall just felt like it was setting up future marvel films.

I fell asleep. Take from that what you will.

Thor: the dark world is one of the worst superhero movie sequels I've ever seen. the title is cool and the action is mindlessly entertaining but the movie is not. for one, it makes zero sense throughout. two I see people defending it because it's part of the MCU and it contains easily recognizable characters and that's enough for them to give it a pass.


Owens grade: D+

Visually one of the best Marvel movies. Story was good too. Just so clumsily delivered. Shame
November 12, 2016
Thor: The Dark World is one of the most underrated Marvel Films. While it does have a lot of issues, mainly with the villain, it succeeds more than it fails.

Impressive visual, but the story was just about OK.
