Warriors from Asgard stop them but their leader Malekith escapes to wait for another opportunity. The warriors find the Aether and since it cannot be destroyed, they try to hide it. In the present day, Jane Foster awaits the return of Thor although it has been two years since they last saw once another. In the meantime, Thor has been trying to bring peace to the nine realms.

Underwhelming, soulless.
A weak entry into the Marvel lineup, this film has most of the right ingredients but lacks something vital.

I left the cinema disappointed - but without any great glaring crime to judge the film for.

The action sequences are filler, lacking exciting or creative choreography in favour of formulaic exchanges of gain and loss, the mechanics of drama laid bare. The plot is epic, but no-one seems to have any real grasp of what 'the end of the universe' would really mean. The villain is an excellent actor not given anything to work with - a character without a personality, without either strength or weakness, without any motivation except that issued bluntly in the prologue. He hasn't a single meaningful line. He has none of the layered darkness and intrigue of Iron Man 2's villain, or Thor's own Loki.

Loki excels in his tightly defined role, but as a side-story he only scores so much screen time. Thor remains well-played but has acclimatised to Earth standard remarkably quickly across his two brief holidays there, lacking any of his brusque viking charm or culture clash from the original.

Heimdall is a weak depiction this time around - very much the same character, but with none of the barely-contained, frightening power of his first outing.

Asgardians and Svartalfar alike are faceless, masked or helmeted mooks, serving only to die in battles with all the energy and realism of a children's play directed by a nine-year-old Michael Bay.

All in all, the film is simply... Dull Hollywood entertainment without any threat, drama, darkness, or intrigue, and all too much comic relief that costs the atmosphere rather than being part of it. The closest it gets to interesting is in its reality-bending gravitational anomalies between worlds, which remind one more of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise or the classic novel Roadside Picnic than anything else.

Odin has been tragically rewritten into an angry, elitist grump even before the plot gives him a reasonable excuse.

I'd say avoid this one, much like The Incredible Hulk, and perhaps Captain America. The three weakest entries in the Marvel movie lineup, barring the disputed Spider Man set.

Hammer can't break the anvil.
I wanted to give this sequel a shot as the two attempts I tried with the first movie failed miserably to please but I had heard from a friend that this one is different, I know not how..

From the beginning we have a poor plot, like most Marvel movies. For some reasons, Dark futuristic space Elves want to wipe out the world that they failed eons ago. Taking too much out of the great battle of the Lord The Rings, the Elves are broken and exiled, promising to return with a weapon to destroy and rule all life *cough one ring*

Meanwhile somewhere else in the space time spectrum, Thor and his cliché mundane battle brethren who seem as out of place as the swords and axes with their stupid cross over space ships, grenades and guns, are waging war with other.. things not explained.

Returning after certain victory with Thor on their side, our Northen hero in space gets an itch that tells him that whats her face, Jane I think, comes into danger by stupidly touching an alien and obviously evil substance. Oddly enough she isn't abducted by a secret American syndicate, something I thought was definitely going to happen with this plot but alas, it's more simple.

Jane is brought to Valhalla as they are the ones to remove said evil substance where we are sadly subjected to Hokins horrible over acting( a shame), Loki being as ordinary as ever( really we have seen this character in a lot of movies, The black sheep of the ruling family intent on taking it over)

Loki is in jail, Loki is suddenly not in jail, fight between siblings, more fights, more fights in more stupid sword and gun cross overs, fights on Earth and some professor without pants, obviously a Stan lee cameo ( the only laugh) and more fighting with a nice little boring love moment, all wrapped up in a foreseeable and weak excuse for a plot twist.

Pretty visuals... that's really about it that's worth it. I was sad to see Chris D in it. I really just wish movies with such a huge budget put money to novels or more thought out comics with better plots and less stupid content.

Thor had great visuals, Decent enough typical blockbuster action and an Australian. 3/10

This film did not seem to do it for me.
I guess it may be the fact that I never actually got into comic books (beyond Asterix and Tintin that is) that this movie didn't really appeal to me. I guess in another way that I did not find that mixing the gods of the Norse pantheon with the world of superheroes really worked all that well. To me it just seemed to be wrong. Okay, I understand that Thor is the member of the Avengers, and the comic series that bears his name is quite popular, but to me parts of this film did not seem to work. In fact I found it quite boring.

Okay, I did manage to spot Stan Lee, and I did like a couple of the twists at the end, but I am also glad that I missed the end-end sequence (as opposed to the end sequence) but then I have never been one who really wants to sit through a bunch of credits just to see the end scene. Some people suggest that we should sit through all the credits to acknowledge the contribution that the people made to the movie, however that may be, and they are entitled to that view, but my understanding is that if your name is in the credits it means a lot more than just me seeing it. I my name was in the credits to a movie I would rather potential employers see it because that is evidence that I have experience working on a film set.

Also, the other thing that gripped me with this film was the numerous references to 'The Avengers'. Now, I have seen The Avengers, but it was over a year ago and I simply cannot remember much of what happened in that film. The references in Ironman 3 were okay because that assumed that you had seen the film but may not have remembered many of the details (I remember a giant centipede flying around New York City and Robert Downey Jnr) whereas this film seemed to assume a working knowledge and deep familiarity with The Avengers, something which simply did not work for me.

Don't watch 3D Version
First part was much better than this one. Title in review has quite weak plot and above all it lacks emotional intensity and thrill which first part had. Because of shallow plot, this movie will fail to take you along. In these kind of movies Villains are very powerful and invincible. But heroes look for out of the box solutions to get them down but in this movie Villain character is very weak and is without any convention. Villain doesn't look intelligent and dangerous to me. He was just a villain to fill space. Good news is there are 2-3 laughs as well though I didn't laugh as I found them not very laughable.

Direction was OK. Acting was good as normally is in these kind of Films. Portman was bit better. This movie has high production value. Lot of effort and money used in creating stunning visual effects.

So my suggestion to readers is that "Don't watch it in 3D" specially if you have watched Gravity in 3D recently. You will feel very bad like me. And will curse 3D technology which I think is mind blowing if used properly.

Its OK for one time watch but nothing memorable.

The ultimate sell-out - artists falling from grace
Watching this movie represents an all-time LOW in my life as a consumer of mass entertainment products. This movie clearly is one big predictable run for profit for the movie company, director, and actors: nothing but clichés in every aspect and detail, cheesy dialog, silly sound effects, pretty faces, buff bodies, over-dramatization, stupidity, and the list goes on and on and on. This movie is a travesty, a cartoonist's public rape of Nordic mythology for money. This movie is sucking up to a well-mapped audience which has no care for quality, as long as they get their 10 minutes of something cool to tell their friends about. By being in this movie, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, and Stellan Skarsgård have tripped and fallen from any and all artistic grace that they have earned over the years. Shame, shame, shame.

Thor the Bor
Though I'm a devoted fan of SciFi, video games, fantasy and anime, I've always felt like an undernourished geek because I missed the superhero/comic book fan gene—especially when the genre can produce something as seductive as "The Dark Knight." Watching "Thor: The Dark World 3D," however, has cured me of any residual shame in my belief that comic book stories are more cartoonish than cartoons. This movie is just a comic book with lots of frames, and not a good one at that: poorly directed, badly written: "I believe fate has brought us together." Argh! 'Kiss' had more subtle makeup. The storyline disintegrates like English cow patties under a cave golem: before there was even light in the universe there were the Dark Elves. Despite this implausibility, is that why they're called Dark Elves? With the war (over what again?) lost, along with their "aether" (OK—the aether graphics are cool), being some cosmic evil essence, I think, supposedly to be hidden so thoroughly that no one would ever find it—"ever" lasting only until Natalie Portman accidentally falls through a rabbit hole to trip over this most unfindable object on a pedestal under a spotlight. Acting OK but even Natalie Portman is lackluster and unbelievable in this kind of movie, a 'superhero (god, whatever) defeats (insert evil dude here) who wants to destroy the universe', crash bang kapow story we've heard and seen way too many times. Oh, and destroy a major metropolis in the process—any will do, as long as there are identifiable landmarks to pulverize—the destruction of which is as gratuitous as Thor delicately dabbing himself shirtless at the holy water fount, not that we're complaining. Sorry, Thor, while we appreciate your saving the nine realms and sterilizing London, it's just not going to work out—though your mother likes her, Natalie's got to be pushing 40 and you're over 5,000, you're an Odinist, she's Episcopalian… poor deity—palace annihilated, bossed by father, his mother and brother murdered, knocked about by Dark Creatures—but nothing gives the god of thunder even a grunt of discomfort but the repeated bitch slappings of the physicist scorned… I resolve to never see another one of these again— hopefully because they stop making them.

epic. fantasy. entertainment.
Epic. Fantasy. Entertainment.

acting - 8 or 9 / 10

visual effects, costumes, battle scenes - 10/10

story - 8 / 10

epicness - 10/10

creating its own fantasy world - 10/10

this is a pure entertainment film. It won't teach you about the wisdom of life and it won't show how difficult life can be. But what this film does good is to provide epic high-level entertainment, if you are the type of person who could relate to such kind of a fantasy movie.

Chris Hemsworth is great. Natalie Portman makes a solid performance as usual.

Only thing I did not like was the voice effects they used on Chris who sounds a bit like a robot. Not necessary.

Sigh...Zzzz...
I was never a really big fan of Thor to begin with and this movie just proves it to me again. This movie was so slow and boring. The first hour I almost fell asleep a few times. The special effects were really well done but other then that I really do not think this was a great movie. I gave this movie a generous 6 out of a possible 10. Normally these types of movies at least earn a 7 from me but this one at best was a 6 only.

You can tell that this sequel was made for the sack of making some more money off the very boring Thor. I for one will not waste my money on a third that is for sure. They really need to stop wasting everyone's time with Thor. He is boring and other then his looks has very little going for him. Good day!

Technically superb Thor sequel that is missing a heart...
1st watched 12/4/2013 – 5 out of 10(Dir-Alan Taylor): Technically superb Thor sequel that is missing a heart or a reason to care. Visually this movie has a lot to offer, but about halfway thru a realization comes that the fluff isn't enough to sustain a seasoned movie-goer. I had a similar reaction to the Harrison Ford epic "Blade Runner" and other movies that have a lot of style, but very little heart. The story revolves around a matter hidden deep beneath the Earth called "Ether" that can change compositions quickly and is sought after by an evil elf-like creature from a world before there was light, Aka. The Dark World. He believes this Ether has the power to bring back his world. Natalie Portman, plays Jane Foster, a companion of Thor and a scientist – who comes upon this substance during an investigation and it possesses her. The evil creature is then after her and Thor(played by Chris Hemsworth), and he, of course, wants to protect her. The settings in the movie consist of Asgard – ruled by Thor's father Odin(played by Anthony Hopkins), London, and the dark elves' world….the movie jumps back and forth between these worlds partially because of a weird warp found during the investigation that transfers items across these worlds…but Thor seems to be able to go in and out no matter what. There is plenty of action to be had, decent acting, and a little humor but other than the expected battle between good vs. evil there is no real reason or emotion to stay with the movie to the very end. The movie should probably win some visual effects awards, but I'm looking for a complete experience and in my opinion – this isn't one. It is a good try but not quite good enough for my approval.

80 Yr Old Pair of Underwear
I liked the first Thor but this one was a total failure.

The plot to this movie is as thin as an 80 Yr Old Pair of Underwear that has been worn by a homeless dude for the past quarter century.

I mean thin. The beginning was difficult to understand. I even attempted to use closed captioning to get the drift of the beginning.

The only redeeming features of the movie were Loki and the two sub-characters who worked for Jane Foster.

It sounded like Chris Hemsworth just graduated from Woolloomooloo Grammar given his thick Aussie accent (which was not as pronounced in the first movie).
