I really want to know why people are mad that Kurse beat up Thor, in the comics the dude's defining characteristic is his ability to kick Thor's ass. Seriously that's the only thing he's famous for. That's like being mad at the Batman movie because Bane broke Batman's back.

I thinks its more how Thor didn't even get a chance to fight back at all and have Loki save him.

The entire point of the fight was to be a curbstomp battle. Kurse's entire point is being one of the few people who Thor can't even fight back effectively hand to hand. Anyone who whines about it forgets just who Kurse is.

In terms of Thor's rogue's gallery, the only one who's even more of an unstoppable brute is Mangog and the Destroyer armor.

Although in the MCU the Destroyer armor seems to be more of an Asgardian Drone Tank than the walking weapon of mass destruction it was in the comics, while Kurse is well...Kurse.

The Kurse fight was actually my favorite scene in he movie. And overall I liked the movie (though I liked the first Thor a little more).

@joshmightbe: People are complaining about the Kurse fight? That was the best fight scene of the movie IMO. Like Thor fighting Doomsday. It was established that Kurse was basically near unkillable in the movie itself. Now I need to find out more about his comic counterpart.

I wish the fight had gone on longer. It was a great chance to have an extended melee fight scene but it barely lasted longer than the scene of the people dropping the bottles and keys through the portal.

@lvenger: I thought the end battle was brilliant. Very creative and had some good laughs.

Kurse was a better villain in the movie than Malekith even though that he had 3 words of dialogue throughout the movie. His stances, expressions, and movements had more of a personality than Malekith ever had.

@deranged_midget: Same here but the Kurse battle was way more tense and brutal making it the superior fight along with the awesome owning of Thor by Kurse.

I thought it was good but over far too quick.

I would be mad if he didn't kick Thor's ass.

Quoted for truth.

@lvenger: Mostly its just movie fans who are pretending to be Thor fans I think, for instance one I guy I heard complaining about it thought Kurse was an orc.

Bro, does he even fantasy?

@guardian_of_gravity: Just saying any real Thor fan should have at least some passing Knowledge of who Kurse is. As far as I'm concerned its like claiming to be a Batman fan and having no idea who the Penguin is.

@joshmightbe: I mean, even just knowing the basic tenets of the fantasy genre should help you tell Orcs and Dark Elves apart.

@guardian_of_gravity: From a physical standpoint I could understand someone who didn't know who he was mistaking him for a troll or an ogre tho.

I saw that in the "Thor 2...I mean Dawson's Creek sucked!!" thread.

Agreed.

@knightrise: I automatically discounted all his further arguments after he said that.

I don't know why people are complaining.I liked the battle and I think that it was pretty intense even though it ended up pretty quickly.

I thought it was great. My only complaint seems to be that the weaponry for Asgard was weird. Using magic medieveal weapons but having anti jet Cannons and the Fact that the Dark Elves essentially use human-esque weapons kinda turned me off. Then again, I can't fault the creators for making human archetype-weapons.

There was nothing wrong with Kurse in this movie.

People are dumb.
