Made good with an amount of action and comedy, this 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 a science-fiction feel than requiring a blend with more elements of fantasy. To add insult to injury, the plot is generic and there is too much emphasis on the chemistry of Thor and Jane Foster. Still, the movie is at a slight purpose of having some bountiful energy 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. However, his role of the main antagonist is somewhat bland and dull-written and fails to compromise an interesting goal or an motive.

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
