What did you think of...Thor: The Dark World?

Nov. 8, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Marvel's Cinematic Universe continues spinning into Phase Two this weekend with the release of THOR: THE DARK WORLD, the sequel to 2011's THOR, directed by Kenneth Branagh. Bringing back stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins, along with new cast members Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, the sequel is directed by Game of Thrones alum Alan Taylor.

We've seen countless trailers, TV spots, clips, and featurettes for the film to get us stoked for the sequel and Bumbray's review is mostly positive (read it here!)

8/10 and a thought on future casting

Before I get to my thoughts on the movie I must say that the one thing I took for his small appearance in this film is how perfect I think Chris O'Dowd would be as Hank Pym/Ant-Man. Obviously this is out of the question and Paul Rudd is a great choice but O'Dowd would have been able to hit all the important notes as Pym, and while the questions would arise about his physicality as Ant-Man I think he would have done just fine with a few months of working out. I'm interested to see what my
Before I get to my thoughts on the movie I must say that the one thing I took for his small appearance in this film is how perfect I think Chris O'Dowd would be as Hank Pym/Ant-Man. Obviously this is out of the question and Paul Rudd is a great choice but O'Dowd would have been able to hit all the important notes as Pym, and while the questions would arise about his physicality as Ant-Man I think he would have done just fine with a few months of working out. I'm interested to see what my fellow Schmoes think about this and if ANYBODY had the same thought as the watched him in this?
As for the film I thought this movie was really entertaining..of course Loki stole the movie and the scene where he was backseat flying as they escaped Asgard was just great! Hemsworth has become Thor in the same way RDJ IS Ironman, and that's an accomplishment because I always found Thor to be the hardest Marvel character to cast in my head. Taylor did a fine job directing and the action sequences had a nice feel but none of them really stood out or left me thinking WOW THAT WAS AMAZING! I find Kat Dennings to be unbelievable annoying and besides her titties she has brought nothing to either of Thor's solo outings. My only other gripe is that I wish they had built up Eccleston as the villain a little more and gave him a really awesome violent battle scene in the first act to show what a threat he was to Thor. I also had no clue that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was in this film and he seemed a bit wasted in a role that could have been played but any unknown actor and saved him for a role in or maybe even as Black Panther. Overall I had a lot of fun with this film and thought it was a solid entry into the MCU. I am torn on the mid-credit scene as I think it will be fun to see Benicio Del Toro chew scenery as The Collectior but his apperance seemed out of place in this film and the set felt a bit cheap looking. I really hope GOTG is the awesome space epic I'm hoping for and that James Gunn is up to the task but doesn't go over the top with a campy feel. I give Thor: The Dark World an 8/10, it was better than the first film and had great performances by Hiddleson and Hemsworth but I thought the villain was a bit weak and it lacked any true WOW moment.

Awesome

If I wanted to see a comedy with Thor and Loki as Stepin & Fetchit. Not so much for a superhero movie, though.

Enjoyed it but was left underwhelmed

Had fun watching, its got some decent laughs and action but ultimately it was forgetable. It's getting obvious that Marvel puts the big bucks and focus into their two tentpoles (Iron Man and Avengers).

I agree, I enjoyed it but I repeatedly said afterwards it just didn't have that WOW moment or that HOLY SHIT THAT WAS AMAZING action sequence. Solid but not amazing.

Thor's an Ass

I coming at this from a different take. The character of Thor to me is the equivalent of Ash from Evil Dead. He's a pompous ass, with a sense of right and wrong. I think I'm in the minority when I say Kenneth Branagh's take was a little more on the right track, than this movie. The well entitled, jovial Thor is much closer to the real thing, the emo Thor in Dark World. I sort of hoped the new movie would be more cinematic than it was. My personal opinion is that it should have been anamorphic

My personal opinion is that it should have been anamorphic widescreen, and it didn't feel that way at all. I want a Thor whose pride mucks up the works, creates a little humor out of that, and in the his strength and sense of justice rules. Thor 2 isn't that unfortunately.

It Was Great!

I loved Thor: The Dark World! It was so much fun and much better than the first film. Natalie Portman looked GORGEOUS in the film and Kat Dennings was hilarious as usual.

@AstralPlane Thor and Sif hook up on and off in the comic after he's split with Foster so it's definetly possible for the films. It was odd cause they hinted at a love triangle in this one and then just forgot about it (maybe it was deleted?).

The villain was lame and forgettable but everything else was very enjoyable. Loki once again steals the show. He's probably the best character in the entire MCU. The mid credits scene looked silly but when he said 'one down five to go' i damn near squealed.

That mid-credits scene was jarring after all that glorious cg-palooza of a film. It was weird, like 80's TV sitcom weird. I didn't see the Collector. I saw Benicio del Toro in a Halloween costume acting like a 12 year old in his first school play. But overall the movie was fine. First movie was slightly better, though.

Good, not great

The parts I liked: Cast was great, awesome visuals of the different realms, funny jokes.
The parts I didn't like: there was no drama to some of the action scenes, and a little too much comedy. To be honest, out of all the MCU movies, this had the least action to me.

I loved every minute of Thor: The Dark World and thought it was a huge improvement over the original (I love the original). I thought Alan Taylor did a beautiful job in directing and thought he really brought Asgard to life in so many great different ways and the score to the film was amazing as well.

I enjoyed the story much more this time around and enjoyed how much more each character had to do in participating. Except for maybe Siff, who is definitely not in the film enough. I also

I enjoyed the story much more this time around and enjoyed how much more each character had to do in participating. Except for maybe Siff, who is definitely not in the film enough. I also thought the action was much more heavy this time around and was very well done. I also LOVED the twist with Thor and Loki going up against Malekith and thought it really was a total 180 for Loki.

The cast did a phenomenal job (again) all the way from Chris Hemsworth all the way down to Rene Russo (who also had a couple of nice action scenes this time around). Everyone in this cast just owns their role, especially Hemsworth and Hiddleston as Thor and Loki and it's their relationship that is truly my favorite things about the Thor films and one of my favorite aspects about the Marvel Centric Universe films together. Again Hiddleston steals the entire film and just delivers every time Loki is on screen. I loved how he was somewhat redeemed by the end of the film by helping out Thor and Jane and I cannot wait to see how and when he returns again. He has truly become my favorite villain in the Marvel Universe.

The mid-credits scene was also a great way to lead into the Guardians of the Galaxy and despite the short scene, really set the tone for what's to come from the film.

And I saw it in 3D and all I gotta say is that the Captain America footage looked awesome and the one scene they showed us (Captain kicking ass in the elevator) was really action packed and showed us how much darker this phase will be than phase one. The footage only fueled my excitement more for the film.

In the end, I really think that Thor: The Dark World might be the best Marvel film out of both Phases (so far, excluding Avengers), even though I think Winter Soldier will come out on top. Can't wait to see this again.

It has problems but very enjoyable

I liked the whole Loki arc that they took the character and admit that they had me fooled in Thor and Loki big confrontation with the villain. I didn't find Kat Dennings as annoying as others have but it did get repetitive. Stellan Skarsgart was hilarious especially in his scene with Stan Lee. The action was strong and I can see why people compared the spaceship scenes to starwars. I do wish we could have had more interactions with Sif an the warriors three, hell one of them is gone in the

I do wish we could have had more interactions with Sif an the warriors three, hell one of them is gone in the first 5min. You can tell that Alan Taylor has an eye for the midieval time period but I wonder if he directed that game of thrones episode with the archer that kept missing the boat to light the funeral pyre. Now a note to marvel and disney did you have to put a hidden mickey in the movie that actually got groans from the audience. To me it ended on the perfect note and with so many options for the future and the end credit scenes volstagg makeup was awful but BDT was awesome and has me excited for that movie.

decent enought, but could have been a whole lot better.

Alan Taylor has been one of the best tv directors out there for years now. But I think his strength lies in drama not sci fi/fantasy. So even though he didn't do a bad job the entire film had a way too serious tone I thought. All in all I'd say 6 out of 10

I think I'd give it an 8 out of 10. It's slightly heavier and more dramatic than the first go-round, but justifiably so and not all "we're dark and edgy now". It expands the mythology and doesn't feel like a retread of the first movie at all. It's less funny but believe you me, there are still some good jokes in this - that bit with the car keys and the portal was a winner, and so was the Stan Lee cameo. It's been said that sequels are all about the villains - well, in this case, there's

Eccleston is awesome so it's a bit of a shame he doesn't get a lot to do. But I think that was intentional, in order to give room for the relationships and characters to develop. Of course, Tom Hiddleston steals the show, but I'm glad that they didn't weight the whole thing towards him. I also enjoyed that the aspect of Loki as a god of mischief was played up; he plays a good number of tricks on people in this one. Also, blonde Zachary Levi is teh sex.

Definitely go check it out!

It was enjoyable, but very unremarkable. Loki was the best part of the film and stole the film every time he was on screen. My main problem was how uninteresting the plot and main villain were. They felt fairly generic and bland compared to what we've seen before. Some evil, dark badguy wants to use an incredible power to destroy the universe....yawn. However, I still like the character of Thor. He's still not to the level of Stark/Iron Man or Banner/Hulk, but he's funny and has entertaining

However, I still like the character of Thor. He's still not to the level of Stark/Iron Man or Banner/Hulk, but he's funny and has entertaining swagger. I liked that everyone seemed to have an upgraded part in the film as well. So far, though, I am kind of disappointed with Phase II. It's just not as interesting as Phase I. I liked Iron Man 3 slightly better, if only because it at least tried to strive for something deeper in terms of character development and plot, but both films are still below a number of the Phase I films. Winter Soldier actually looks pretty interesting and seems to do some interesting things with Captain America, so we'll see if that's better than the two films from this year. Personally, I am more excited about Guardians. Between the leaked teaser online, the talent behind it, and the little clip from Thor, I am excited for more.

Likey.

I dug it-- a thoroughly enjoyable evening's entertainment. I liked the way it wasn't afraid to draw back from the portentous fantasy stuff by having Thor ride around in an old Volvo or be forced to get on the tube to continue his fate-of-the-universe dependent battle with Malekith. For some reason the funniest moment I found in the film was when Thor hangs up his hammer on the coat rack in Jane's flat.

Easily my favourite marvel film

Hands down the best phase 2 film! After the total joke that was iron man 3, Thor knocks it out the park!!

As someone who finds the MCU pretty bland sand boring, Thor is like a breath of fresh air from the stale generic other films, like the iron man sequels and captain America movie! The character was what kept me interested in the avengers movie, sure the hulk was good, but banner actually annoyed me on repeat viewings!

People say there isn't enough humour in this, so therefore it's

People say there isn't enough humour in this, so therefore it's not great! Don't get that!!! It had funny moments but it least it wasn't a slapstick joke like IM3! Anyway I loved it, visiting the other realms, if not briefly, the sibling bickering, the action, the perfect amount of humour, the cameo and this time we got 2 half decent credit scenes!

I think the winter soldier looks ok, looks a lot better than the first one. But it will have a hard time topping this!

Well it's prob on par with iron man one, 2 and 3 in the villain depart ment.

Only compared to red skull and Loki does he look crappy, but compair him with the rest of the MCU villains and he is no better no worse.

I enjoyed it, I liked the way the humor was dialed down and was a little grittier overall. Asgard looked great & once again Loki steals the show, and what a stunning score by Brian Tyler. Though Christopher Eccleston was a weak villain (not his fault) and the Elves looked stupid running around London, as in real fake.

Frigga's funeral was fantastic, again the score!
Cap's "cameo" was fun.

Unfortunately though I thought the mid-credit scene was awful, not the set up but the feel of it. Admittedly I 'm not familiar with Guardians of the Galaxy but can someone tell me if that's supposed to be the look of it? cheap '50's style make-up etc?

Fantastic!

Definitely met my expectations, and even exceeded them! The villain is lacking, some of the plot is pretty bland, but the action, the character moments, and especially Loki more than makes up for any flaws. The humor is well-placed and not overbearing, Thor's character progression is realistic and natural, many characters are expanded and have much bigger roles, and the tone is a great mix of fantasy and sci-fi. Very balanced all around. Definitely blows the 1st movie out of the water. Solid

In all honesty...(No Spoilers)

..it's an entertaining film with Loki stealing the show. It also has a fantastically epic score. Other than that, it's pretty average. The story, villains, and supporting cast had plenty of potential to shine, but didn't. The comedic relief waters-down almost every serious scene, and for some reason a lot of the characters seem emotionally constipated. Again, it's fun, but it could have been so much more. There were one too many openings for the story to go somewhere big, yet it failed to

Cameos and nods were top-notch though.

@booster-gold87: Not really. I actually liked Iron Man 3 more, simply because Tony Stark has always been a witty, sarcastic person. The humor there was standard stuff, even during the "big twist". It's not perfect, because like all Marvel films its serious parts are watered down, but Thor 2 has way too much humor, to a point where nothing seemed like a real threat, ever.

You have that the wrong way round! Iron man 3 was presented as a dark and gritty thriller, then it was a slapstick comedy!

Thor was exactly how it was presented, with a few laughs. If you think this had too much humour in it, you clearly have no idea what a joke is.

@booster-gold87: You actually may be right. I stopped watching full movie trailers about 2+ years ago. I watch the first trailer (teaser), and nothing else, because I like to keep everything for the big screen. I guess that's why I didn't know what to expect from neither Iron Man 3 nor Thor 2. I had a vague preconception of both films and enjoyed them in different ways, with Iron Man 3 being more enjoyable than Thor 2.

Yeah I think I might have enjoyed im3 a tad more if I hadn't watched any trailers.

But I still think I would prefer Thor 2 over it.
