The Marvel Money Train trundles on and it is about time that someone pointed out who the runt of the litter is; ‘Iron Man’ makes almost as much money as ‘The Avengers’, the new ‘Captain America’ appears to be very popular, so that leaves ‘Thor’. Thor’s second solo outing is ‘Thor: The Dark World’, a film that is perhaps one of the lesser Marvel films of recent years, but still a lot better than your ‘Amazing Spidermans’ and ‘The Wolverine’. This is a film that stars the charismatic Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as Thor and Loki; it is just a shame that happen to be surrounded by charm vacuums like Natalie Portman, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.

‘Thor 2’ sees the return of a race called the Dark Elves as they seek to take back what they believe Odin took from them. To achieve this they much activate the Aether which will plunge the universe into darkness. ‘Thor 2’ is at its best when the action is happening. There is a tremendous fight scene in Asgard and the closing fight set in London is slightly smaller in scale than that seen at the end of ‘The Avengers’, but is still excellent. Hemsworth is still great as Thor, still charming and a little daft. Hiddleston is also very good, but does not really have enough to do here – they are going to really have to justify his return in any future films.

The issue is that the threat just seems a little limp. The science fiction ideas are fun, but like they were randomly plucked from a patchy back catalogue of Thor comics. Some rather dull alien leader using a weapon that could be just about anything. Despite the central thread of the film being a little flaky, the action and humour means that ‘The Dark World’ is still a very entertaining film.

Positive.
Chris Hensworth as Thor whom has made this part his own delivering a more human side to the God of Thunder.
Tom Hiddleson scene steels every scene he's in as Loki.
Christopher Eccleston is a surprisingly good in his role as Dark Elves Malekith
Superb well directed action scenes by Alan Taylor that deliver a epic scale.

Negative.
The humour is a to much in places affecting some of the more dramatic scenes especially in the climactic battle.
The ending is an anti-climax, One assuming this is a plot device for Thor 3?

Trivia.
Keep an eye out for a Marvel Avenger cameo in this.
There 2 post cameo scenes at the end of this movie.

Blu ray Info.
Running time 112 minutes, Region B2, Rating:12a, Subtitles, Director Alan Taylor.

Extras.

Quality.Blu ray has a sharp crisp picture & excellent sound, I have experienced No loading problems to date.

Review.
After the events by Loki in Avengers Assemble his adopted father Odin vanquishes Loki to the cells of Asgard to atone for his crimes.

Meanwhile Thor is bringing order to the 9 realms & upon his return to Asgard a new threat looms with the power source used in past history by the Dark Elves run by leader Malekith a old enemy of Asgard who's army was virtually wiped out by Thor's Grandfather whom then banished the power source Aether to Earth for safety.

The Aether is a liquid based weapon of great power capable of destroying Earth, Asgard & the other realms.

Another C,G,I Spectacle to behold.
With Lead cast : 'Chris Hemsworth' (Thor) 'Natalie Portman' (Jane Foster)
'Tom Hiddleston' (Loki) 'Anthony Hopkins' (Odin) and 'Christopher Eccleston'
(Malakith)
The Cosmos is in danger as rare alignment of the planets is about to come
about.
Ancient adversary 'Malakith' has re-emerged 'Thor' cannot combat the enemy
alone, he needs the help of his treacherous brother 'Loki' to save both 'Asgard'
and 'Planet Earth' where 'Jane Foster' lives, 'Jane' the woman 'Thor' loves.
Apparently 'Jane' possesses powers that the evil 'Malakith' will need to fulfil
his intent to destroy both worlds.
Can 'Thor's' brother 'Loki' be trusted. ?
This an Action-Packed visual and enjoyable spectacle in the 'Marvel' Super-Heroes
series.
Great Picture and Sound Quality Throughout both watching in either 3-D or 2-D
(May have to duck a few time with the 3-D version)
Special Features include :-
* Marvel one shot - All Hail the King.
* Featurette :- A Brother's Journey - 'Thor' and 'Loki'
* Featurette :- Scoring Thor :- The Dark World with 'Bryan Tyler'
* Deleted and Extended Scenes.

Plus Much More....

This is the best Thor film I have seen. To be honest Thor is my least faverite Avenger, comic book character in general. The first film reformed my opinion. This film is so much better. I like the way Thor says in his world magic and science are one of and the same. It gave this film more of science fiction feel. The only thing that let this film down a bit for me was it seemed like a weaker version of The Avengers complete with alien invasion. The strongest thing in thing about this film was the cast. Everyone put in a great performance. I believed their characters a lot more than the first film.

Thousands of years ago, a gerneration for Asguardians, Odin's father fought the Dark Elves to the point of their extinction, or so they thought. Now thousands of years later, the nine realms are once again aligning. It is time gory round 2. There are big revelations for Thor 3 and and Avengers 2 as well after the cast credits. This is a good enjoyable scifi film. It wad good to see the other warriors of Asguard in action espically as I think Thor is too much of a on trick pony and not as much without his hammer. An enjoyable film even to non Thor fans like me.
