Review
Made good with an amount of action and comedy, nearly makes it as a top favourite. THOR: THE DARK WORLD is not quite as tangible or eligible than the first hit (click here), due to having too much of a science-fiction feel than requiring a blend with more elements of fantasy. Still, the movie is at a slight purpose of having some bountiful energy of the plot and quick-less development on the characters that saved all the rest in one rate. The original cast of the previous instalment are back, especially Tom Hiddleston whose villainous character Loki underwent a change and became an anti-hero, but still enacting the scenes very well. Christopher Eccleston of DOCTOR WHO portrays the main villain for THOR 2, Malekith and I could calm you readers that this character is not going to be revealed as either false or anti-climatic.

Better than IRON MAN 3 (click here) without the misfires, but generally a good simple movie and a big deal that Marvel has got it right. In three words: GO SEE IT.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
