Its various subplots are connected not by theme or by character, but by coincidence. It has the appearance of well-structured drama, but it leaves too many elements hanging in mid-air to form a coherent whole.

Thor: the Dark World is probably the worst Marvel movie

Loki is the only character who makes himself new and interesting. When he is around, Thor: The Dark World becomes a different film altogether. You wish there was more of him. The rest of it is metal clanking.

..waxes its big-budgeted whimsy but leaves out the core element of simply tooting its humble horn as a compelling down-to-earth Marvel Comics sideshow. Thor's fellow heroic handlers are not losing any sleep to the strained adventures that exist

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.

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

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.

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.

How long are you fans going to put up with this kind of slack nonsense?
July 14, 2015
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.

Pacing is a problem, as sequences setting up an intergalactic finale drag, particularly when the film spends far more time on Asgard, with almost none of the fish-out-of-water charm that made the first film work.

With its dark elves, some kind of lava beast known as the Kurse, and too much time spent walking around in cloaks, the sequel too often feels like watered-down Tolkien.

At least sixty percent of the film consists of characters frantically hurling monster-sized gobs of exposition regarding the increasingly arbitrary rules of this fantasy universe.
February 9, 2014
Populated by bland characters and saturated with tedious dialogue.
January 8, 2014
Another dull, achingly generic story about saving the world.
December 18, 2013
It's sad to say, but Thor: The Dark World marks Marvel's first serious misfire.
December 10, 2013
Enough with the appetite-whetting experiments. Just wake me when The Avengers: Age of Ultron is here.
December 1, 2013
Enjoyable but inconsequential addition to the Marvel Comics movie universe.

While there is a lot at stake plotwise, it never feels all that grave
