Movie Info

In ancient times, the gods of Asgard fought and won a war against an evil race known as the Dark Elves. The survivors were neutralized, and their ultimate weapon -- the Aether -- was buried in a secret location. Hundreds of years later, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) finds the Aether and becomes its host, forcing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to bring her to Asgard before Dark Elf Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) captures her and uses the weapon to destroy the Nine Realms -- including Earth.

  • 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.

  • This feels like a really, really, expensive episode of Doctor Who. In a good way.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • [Director Alan Taylor] is helped by Tom Hiddleston's sleekly malevolent performance as Thor's untrustworthy brother Loki, a more engaging and complex figure than Chris Hemsworth's monosyllabic Thor.

  • Comic-book superheroes have become so angst-ridden in recent years it's a relief to be around one who has hung on to his sense of humour.

Audience Reviews for Thor: The Dark World

    Would be 1 star without Loki's humour. The mid-movie escape + battle scene was the only part worth watching. "Well done. You just decapitated your grandfather." "Let's steal the biggest, most obvious ship in the universe and escape in that. Flying around the city, smashing into everything in sight so everyone can see us. It's brilliant Thor, it's truly brilliant!" [Thor shoves him out of the ship] "You lied to me. I'm impressed."

    With a clear improvement from the first Thor movie the dark world dosnt disappoint. With way better action and visuals the only thing it lacks is a clear story. Often viewers may get lost in the confusing story and crazy asgardian worlds and terms. I would've scored it higher though at a 73%. Better than Age of Ultron in my opinion.

    Thor: The Dark World was surprisingly really good, there are people out there saying its the weakest MCU film and I honestly disagree completely. Let me explained what I liked/disliked. Positives: 1. Chris Hemsworth is again fantastic as Thor! He has proven yet again that he owns this role and I can't imagine another actor helming this role. Tom Hiddleston honestly is just awesome as Loki, I'm not fanboying here he literally kicks ass as this character. The rest of the cast is good too it would take me too long to explain all of them. 2. The visuals; this movie looks nice and stylistically looks better than its predecessor which had annoying dutch angles. Asgard looks breathtaking and the scenes in it are awesome. The action is spectacular, I especially love the scenes where Thor is kicking ass. 3. The feel; one of the things I love about these movies are how different they feel compared to other MCU films. This film reminds me of Lord of the Rings and it does remind me of Man of Steel too especially the scenes in Asgard are reminiscent of Krypton. Negatives: 1. The humor I did like in this film but at times it does get a little silly especially the scene where Ian crushes the elves with a car and then him and Darcy make out and teleport, I thought that was kind of ridiculous. 2. Jane Foster didn't really have much to do in this film I felt. She was in Asgard and didn't seem too surprised, she gave a tennis ball type look. And throughout the film she again didn't have much to do. Except for the finale but that was pretty much it. 3. The villain is weak as usual with most MCU villains. There is nothing interesting about his character other than he is a menacing a-hole, which honestly isn't enough. Overall: Thor: The Dark World I found to be a really good experience. I like the different feel to it along with the first movie and I actually do prefer this over its predecessor.

    Is this a huge stepup from the original "Thor" movie. No, unfortunately not. Is it another watchable, fun superhero movie; yes, definitely. It's a really good movie and if we look at the way Alan Taylor directs this movie, it's actually not that much different from what Branagh did back in 2011. Chris Hemsworth is good as usual and Tom Hiddleston is more wonderful than ever as Loki, but the villain Malekith, played by Christopher Eccleston, unfortunately, is a bit of a disappointment, mostly because of the lack of motivation.
