Thor And Loki's Life Unfolding,
This review is from: Thor: The Dark World [DVD]  (DVD)
Intrigue and revenge are two of the multiple themes that are displayed in Thor: The Dark World. Both Thor and his father Odin are faced with a powerful but evil leader named Malekeith bent on inflicting suffering. This leader's taste for violent chaos comes from personal tragedy in his own life. I enjoyed the love story that played out between the characters of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). This is because both characters seamlessly picked up where they last left off from the first film with their relationship. Additionally, Thor's character is shown bravely taking Jane Foster to his world despite how his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) may act. Realistically, true emotion was also shown when Thor and his brother Loki are greatly affected by an event that would change many people (involving a family member). Idris Elba is given an even bigger influential role in the plot of the film as Heimdall. Heimdall's character portrays a sense of perceptiveness in a scene that involves him foreseeing what can happen on one of the main bridges in Asgard. Just a gentle suggestion: maybe Heimdall could be including with Thor in future films as some type of advisor to both Thor and/or his father Odin regarding protection plans for Asgard and/or other strategic mission ideas. My husband's favorite character portrayals were that of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Malekith (Christopher Eccleston). This is because Loki's character is portayed as a strong spirit who wisely knows how to appeal to Thor's heart-centered side while also shrewdly concealing his private and tricky plans. Eccleston's Malekith also appealed to my husband due to the character depth portrayal of what motivated Malekith's actions. Thor: The Dark World is great for those who enjoyed the first film or those who like fantasy films with the inclusion of these other actors/actresses: Stellan Skarsgard, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Chris O' Dowd,Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, and Rene Russo.

A very good review of the film and a very keen grip of what was going on..so maybe your the right person to explain to me what was going on at the end of the film..it left me confused and didn't make much sense. Just seemed an easy way out to set up Thor 3, unless that's the hook to get you to see the next movie the explanation of what the Marvel is going on...

Hi L. Murcutt,
Thanks for your kind words regarding my review. Here is what I felt the end of Thor 2 may have been alluding to:It is obvious at the end of the film that Thor actually does care for Loki (despite Loki's taste to obtain power in tricky ways). Reluctantly, I share my interpretation to the ending of the film due to some of those who read this that may not have yet seen the film. The end of Thor 2 implied Loki's gift at using his transformation magic to fool even his brother Thor. This helped me to also further understand why my husband has great respect for Tom Hiddleston's cunning Loki portrayal. In summary, I believe that the end of Thor 2 basically gave a clue that there is going to be more of Loki in the next chapter of Asgard.

Many Thanks for your great insight..I believe the dvd is due for release next month and will certainly pay more attention to Loki use of transformation magic when I watch it again. I just hope that we not having to wait to long for Thor 3 especially as there's another Avengers movie planned..
