Top critical review
An average entry by MCU standards
on 14 May 2016
Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor in the second Phase 2 film and it's not bad. Thor is great as is his brother Loki still being punished for his actions during The Avengers. The effects are good and the humour really seems to work here so why only average ?
The plot of the film is pretty unremarkable. Ancient evil comes back with super weapon and good and evil must unite to stop them. Problem is the villain Dark Elves are not compelling or ever really a threat. Also there is not much in the wY of chemistry between Hemsworth and Natalie Portman. The latter doesn't really seem to want to be there. It's more distracting then off putting but worth noting.
