Film Review: “Thor: The Dark World”

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins

Directed by:  Alan Taylor

Today, I decided to check out “Thor: The Dark World” and here is my review…

Plot/synopsis: The plot to this movie is pretty simple and straightforward. Just continues from the first “Thor” film about saving Earth from evil beings. This time there are evil beings known as the Dark Elves who wants to send the universe into Darkness by using a weapon called the Aether. Thor reunites with Jane Foster so she can help destroy the Aether but instead the Aether takes over her body. The Dark Elves wants Jane ’cause she has the Aether inside of her body. Later, Thor teams up with his evil brother, Loki so they can help destroy the Aether and they can help save the 9 realms of Asgard (which Earth being one of them). 

I’m not too big on Marvel superheros. There are only very few Marvel superheros that I am big fans of. The only Marvel superheros that I am big fans of are the Wolverine, The Punisher, Iron Man, Captain American, Hulk and of course, Thor.

I enjoyed, “Thor: The Dark World”. It’s just a fun and exciting movie just like the first one was. Just your typical popcorn-action film with impressive visuals and effects. The story was entertaining and watchable but the ending was too predictable, though. I like the action scenes in this movie. There are more action scenes in this movie than the last one. The entire cast did a good job like usual but Tom Hiddleston steals the show here. Hiddleston as Loki is badass. I am noticing that the Thor movies wants to mix action and comedy together. There are a lot of humor throughout these movies.

“Thor: The Dark World” was pretty good. Nothing mind blowing or amazing but just entertaining. I know this review is a short one ’cause there isn’t a lot of things to be said about it. It is recommended to check out if you’re a fan of Marvel or superhero films.

I’ll give it a two thumbs up.
