I really, really enjoyed this film. My only complaint is that the dynamics between Sif, Thor, and Jane didn't really play out at all, but i guess in the grand scheme of what was going on it would have seemed pretty trivial. With that said, Sif deserved more scenes over Kat Dennings character(Even though i loved Kat Dennings in this).

Also, the average movie goer wont fully understand why Sif hates Loki so much. LOL. (her hair)

@themultiverse: Who doesn't love Kat Dennings? :P I bet there's a lot but I love her so much, and Darcy was perfect.

Posted by Queso6p4

@themultiverse: I feel you on that. I like Dennings too but she always plays the same character in movies. Plus, Portman's character was just relegated to vessel of the Aether status for basically the entire movie.

Interesting, I look forward to watching it.

Rorie! Urrm for me there was not enough back story for Malekith. However there probably would have been if Alan Taylor was allowed to make the film he wanted to make...

RORIE!

The first half is slow as Hell and Darcy needs to get out, but then it transforms into one of the best Marvel movies. More than makes up for the supreme abomination that was Iron Man 3.

We're facing an issue now, though. I know people who are going to see these movies having not seen all the others and just ending up lost. Marvel NEED TO UNDERSTAND that you cannot have a rewarding shared universe AND movies that stand entirely alone. You simply cannot. Accept that fans will eventually have to do work.

Fans cannot have everything on a plate and fed.

Great movie. My CBM of the year.

Entertaining movie with great visuals and off the wall humor. I'm intrigued with the next sequel after watching the mid-credit sequence and will rummage around the site to get more information. Is there a Thanos storyline in the near future?

Posted by MannEffest

Overall I liked it a lot, didn't LOVE it, but I liked it A LOT. The biggest plus for me was Hemsworth and Hiddleston, they completely embody their respective characters and I could just listen to them banter all day! The action scenes were another plus, they were done beautifully, and the visuals, wow I was swooning at how beautiful Asgard was… and then we went to Earth. Ugh I really could have done with less Earth and more of Asgard and other realms, less Jane Foster and MORE Sif, less Darcy (who I loved though) and more Warriors Three (err, I guess it was just two really). But overall, it was great! It brought the trademark humor and action that we have come to expect from Marvel movies, and dat ENDING! Man I cant wait to watch Thor 3 now!

i just saw it and enjoyed it. I agree with Tony about not enough screen time for Sif . Would like to see Sif and Jane Foster and Thor relationship, and where it goes. Really liked it ..

Ok, just got back from seeing it.

The first 2/3 of the movie, is great beside one thing.

Epic background of the villain, awesome special effects, funny jokes. Many Asgard gods, especially Loki's character was further developed and there were sacrifices.

However, I don't think the Malekith and Frigga scene makes sense. He could detect the Aether from like, light years away? And he knew it was on Padme even though nobody told him. Even if he could still get tricked, why would he have to waste time to ask her about where is Padme after the trick was over? He could easily sense her and she was not far away. Also it was very stupid to kill her, she could be a very valuable hostage to be used against Asgard.


The last 1/3 of the story is crap.

I believe after such a awesome 2/3, we were expecting a big, epic, intense final confrontation between Thor and the Dark Elves, but we got a comedic, stupid fight, Malekith was so weak before he got the Aether, and after he got it he was still only having slight advantage over Thor, thus makes the final battle a bit less interesting, since we saw his lieutenant could beat the crap out of Thor. They made the same mistake of MoS, let the NO.2 villain overshadowed the antagonist.

And they were just keep getting teleported to different places and could barely keep fight. Thor even had to take a metro to go back. This really damaged the intensity of the battle. and not to say, the comedic couple's scenes further dropped the seriousness of the battle. I also don't understand how could that couple and Padme escape unharmed with a bunch of dark elves behind their asses? We saw they could match the strength of the Asgard warriors, and their weapon is very deadly, especially those "dark hole grenades".

Overall, because of the strength of the villain, the stupid teleport scenes damaged the intensity, the comedic scenes and the "dumb dark elves" made this final battle(supposed to be very intense the serious) a big disappointment.

I don't see the need to bring Loki back to life either, this actually made his sacrifice and selflessness much less precious, unless they are trying to make him play a villain role in the future.


The mid-credit scene is quite interesting.

Thanos is collecting the gems.

Posted by GodOfMischief

@slowpokeking: I actually really liked the whole Loki thing. I think it would've been too predictable for him to make that noble sacrifice, which is why I think the twist at the end is very faithful to his character. Though I do agree about the metro scene taking away the intensity from the final battle.

It was...okay, bit too much comedy, and seriously,Darcy needs to go, she's nothing more than comic relief.

good movie

the comedy was fine. it was a hell of a lot better than iron man 3 wich felt like a really bad snl skit

Looks like the cosmic cube is the mind gem and the Collector has the Power Gem. Hello Infinity Gauntlet. I think my main complaint is I have to years for Thor 3 to wrap up these plot threads, I want more Thor now. : (

Posted by The Stegman

@tazzmission: Well, being better than IM3 isn't saying much. It feels like these phase 2 movies are trying too hard. It's bad enough that Darcy's there, but giving her an improv, intern too?? Having Jane try to be funny? And Selvig? And Jane's date? Too much humor, took away from the intensity. I mean Thor on the subway?! Come on!

jesus christ darcy or the intern didnt have that much at all. your blowing it way out of proportion.

Loki is clearly the best character in the MCU

coulson has a huge fanbase soooooooooooooooooooo maybe another round between the two to settle it?

Posted by The Stegman

@tazzmission: I'm not saying it ruined the movie, I'm saying it took away from the movie, perfectly proportional. And yeah, they did have a lot of dialogue that could have been given to important characters...like Sif. Or.. yknow...the main villain.

I think the phase 2 movies didn't do the villains well enough.

Man Seeing Benicio Del Toro looking like he is in a James Gunn film just warms to cockles of my heart.

The design on this film is amazing and the best part but man This movie was very underdeveloped emotionally which makes the cgi laden cliamtic battle just utterly hollow. It was fun to watch no doubt but I think they cut like half of act 2 in this film.

I won't say the final battle is good, it's the weakest part of this movie.

Edited by AlKusanagi

There were a couple scenes with Natalie and the aether effect that I could totally see her playing an AMAZING Dark Phoenix.

And much like how a ton of Cap stuff was cut out of Avengers, I bet there's a lot more Thor/Sif stuff that will pop up on the home release.

Edited by viin

Not the worst but not the best marvel movie is a good way to put it.

The opening scene where it explains the history of Malakith and him hiding the the Aether* just makes me go...hmm let me guess...someone finds it. It just seems a little redundant to me i guess.

The whole teleporting thing and the realms lining up was a bit too much..like Rorie said, a little too convenient for the plot. And I really dont think there was a reason to go back to Earth for the final battle besides forcing more Jane Foster into the script. And yet again this threat seems like it could of been a bigger deal than the alien invasion in the Avengers yet theres no sign of SHIELD.

I felt Asgard looked great once again but I was not really impressed by the other realms that were shown. One was pretty much just a field with a forest in the background and the other was just a dark desert. Fight scenes were just okay and other things felt like they were a little rushed but I stayed entertained.

The ending with Loki was good. If not my favorite part of the story. It just makes me wonder where or what happen to Odin.

The mid-credits scene wasnt that big of a deal..nothing I already didnt see coming. And what makes them think "The Collector" is even trustworthy in the first place? You would think Asgard would have the power and technology to keep these relics safe.

And was there an end credits scene?

Posted by Ryagan

I was surprised by how much I liked this movie. It wasn't great, but it was solid. I wasn't a huge fan of the first, so I was surprised with how much I enjoyed The Dark World. Also, that mid-credits scene gave me a nerdgasm. I usually hate that word, but it's the only way I can describe my reaction to it.

Yes. It wasn't mind-blowing or anything, but it was worth waiting for. That is, if you really want Thor and Jane to end up together.

I was a bit surprised at how Collector engaged Volstagg and Sif about the gem. From their dialogue they said they wanted to keep stones separated; going so far as to say they could keep the tesseract (Cosmic Cube) safe but not both.

It sounded like they were indicating that both of these were infinity stones, which of course isn't the case but I may have misheard. I asked the wife and she said I had heard correctly but between the group of us we weren't sure.

Suppose we'll see. Still, very much enjoyed the film - 4 of 5.

My favourite bit was seeing Loki after Frigga died. Him actually breaking like that, and grieving, made me feel things.

Posted by blastaar

I have question. Where's Balder in the Thor films?

Edited by UltimateSMfan

I enjoyed it,had a good time, wasn't mind blowing but imo better than the first one and Loki stole the show. As usual, little over board with the humor. The mid credits scene though got me really excited.

What i felt sad about was Frigga had possibly the best fighting moves in the whole movie and she's killed :(

@slowpokeking: Wow, that's a lot of spoiler block, people know what discussion they're getting into. So I won't mark my post. Great analysis, except couple of things:

I believe after such a awesome 2/3, we were expecting a big, epic, intense final confrontation between Thor and the Dark Elves, but we got a comedic, stupid fight, Malekith was so weak before he got the Aether, and after he got it he was still only having slight advantage over Thor, thus makes the final battle a bit less interesting, since we saw his lieutenant could beat the crap out of Thor. They made the same mistake of MoS, let the NO.2 villain overshadowed the antagonist.

2/3 of the movie is set for character development and background setup (see some cool Asgard features and few Realms). It's essential. As for the fight, I agree it's comedic, but it's by no mean stupid. Why? well, you saw what happened in MoS, too many unnecessary destruction, lens flare action scene. Then it will be no different from the Chitauri invasion. Thor has his M'jolnir is no joke, and from what I saw, Malekith wasn't in the mood for fighting, his priority is to conquer the 9 realms in 7 minutes(as stated by Foster). Why waste time to fight Thor?. With now MCU sets for phase 2, distribute to all over the world, which means there are many non-comicbook movie goer... the wise direction would be making a entertaining and well-structured sequels.

I don't see the need to bring Loki back to life either, this actually made his sacrifice and selflessness much less precious, unless they are trying to make him play a villain role in the future.

It's actually a very clever move by the director (or Marvel executive). First talk about comic fan POV. We all know Loki is no sacrifice-for-brotherhood kind of guy, we expect he will betrays Thor someway during the action, and he did (kind of). Not only they shown Loki's tactical genius ability, but casual movie goer (and Loki fangirl...duh) were satisfied with the Bromance. Now, business POV. Ever since Loki appears in Thor (2011), he has been building fanbase around the globe, like RDJ's Tony Stark. The smart move is to keep him as long as they can, and attract more non-comicbook movie goers. Plus, Tom Hiddleston did a marvelous job as Loki, basically 3 birds with 1 stone.

Thanos is collecting the gems.

That is not Thanos, that is the Collector (will be main villain in upcoming GotG).

Of course it's stupid, those Dark Elves posed serious threat against Asgard warriors. Why would they fail to catch Padme, an old man and 2 fools, even with some teleportation? It's like the Ewoks brought down AT-ST with woods in SW, no, it's like they brought down AT-AT.

Also Malekeith was a meh even with the Aether back, Thor even lost his hammer for a while, it's like in LotR, Sauron, with the One Ring back, couldn't get much advantage against Aragorn even after he lost the Narsil sword. Sure MoS had its own problem but it does not mean Thor 2's way is better.

I now understand it, yeah Loki planned it.

I know it was the Collector, but I believe he works for Thanos. Isn't the main villain Ronan the Accuser?

Edited by deadpool25mm

I realy liked the movie, just one thing that kind of felt wierd was the Dark elves having better tech then Asgard. The Dark Elves race has been "frozen" for more then 10k years, hasnt Asgard been able to detect their stealth after all these years? or have a better defence system? Asgardians running with powerfull Swords and Shields while they have rockets, lasers and Blackhole grenades. O_o, But overall realy enjoyed it.

@slowpokeking: Sauron NEVER got the ring back and NEVER fought Aragorn.

Does anyone else feel like the conclusion for this movie has setup a great cinematic production of the Ragnarok storyline from Thor Disassembled? I think it would be a great move to kind give the character a break and allow the phase 3 heroes to step up. Thor could then return during the grand battle with Thanos in Avengers 3.
