Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World

Marvel’s Thor returns in this post-Avengers battle to save Earth and all the nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that pre-dates the universe itself. Chris Hemsworth returns to the hammer, alongside Tom Hiddleston's Loki, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba under new director Alan Taylor (TV's Game of Thrones).

In the aftermath of Thor (2011) and The Avengers (2012), Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos. But an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin (Hopkins) and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor's task will reunite him with Jane Foster (Portman) and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

This robust, impersonal visual-effects showpiece proves buoyant and unpretentious enough to offset its stew of otherwise derivative fantasy/action elements.

Marvel's man with the mallet does all that's required of him in a breakneck sequel that's never dark for long.

This is a grander, pacier film crammed with sprawling prog-rock landscapes, masked elf armies and giant spaceships over Greenwich.

Thanks to Hiddleston and Hemsworth's impressive collective charisma, [this is] far from a franchise killer.

Too much hammer time, not enough fun, except when Loki's onscreen.

As confident and assured as its lead character, Marvel's great run continues.

The worst of the Marvel films so far, almost too serious for its own good, but still, as movies go, not too bad.

Great sequel to the original, this film further develops Thor's story while also tying up lose ends from other marvel movies. There is plenty of humour which Chris Hemsworth does so well as Thor. Lending to the swagger and confidence that comes from a young god like being that can harness the power of thunder and lightening at will! Thor & Loki's...

When you’re part of the Marvel stable of films, I wonder how much anxiety there is with the release of a film that falls under its label. Each film by itself has proven successful, and with a unified universe, it has an element to it, which will draw audience members in for a healthy box office performance. I’m not saying a film, which falls under Marvel,...

I thought the movie was good. Started off a little slow but once it got going the humour and special effects were really well done, a must watch for Marvel fans.

To be honest, I was pretty bored through most of Kenneth Branagh's first ‘Thor’ movie. Mind you, he had the unenviable task of laying all that other-worldly groundwork and introducing all those not-Norse-gods-but-alien characters. This time Alan Taylor’s at the helm, and he’s directed episodes of some of the best shows on TV - ‘The Sopranos’, ‘Mad Men’ and...
