Lower rating than the first? I thoroughly enjoyed the first, but in my opinion....this film beat it in every aspect. In the love, action, CGI, any department......it was better. Seeing it in IMAX was also a plus, but either way it would rocked even in regular 2D. In my review for the first Thor, I wrote about not caring too much for the Thor franchise before actually viewing the movies, boy do I regret that decision. For me, it easily rivals, if not beats, the Ironman franchise. At the moment, I don't know if a third installment is in the works, but I sure hope they have another film in mind!
