Thor 2 is good but not as good as it should be

What: Movie Review
Who: Thor The Dark World
When: March 2014

With Avengers still in everyone's mind, it's no surprise Thor has landed himself with another film, this one titled The Dark World. This time around, Thor battles a gang of elves that are trying to take over the universe and at the same time save his love, Jane Foster. While its fun to see all of these characters back on the big screen, and Chris Hemsworth is always great as Thor with his one liners and at the same time still can be passionate about the role, the movie lacks the surprise and great storytelling as the first film. TDW isn't a bad film by any means, and is still a noticeable imprint on the now ever so impressive Marvel film catalog, but overall its lackluster at best. Even the special effects seem kind of hoxy and tiresome. The best thing about The Dark World is of course Loki, brilliantly played again by Tom Hiddleson. All in all, it's somewhat of a decent film, but with the talent involved it could have been done A LOT better.

Grade: B-
