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.
