Thor: The Dark World
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings and Anthony Hopkins
Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel's "Thor" and "Marvel's The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Once again, Marvel Studios hits us with a purely entertaining movie. Packed with action, humor, adventure, Stan Lee's cameo and some kick-butt scenes. This one is a popcorn flick for the ages and I loved it!
There's going to be the reviewers out there who pick this one apart. Pfft! I'm sorry, are we going into Thor to see some life changing events? Matters of humanity and earth shattering moments? Or, are we going into this one looking for some fun? I'm looking for fun!
On many levels, The Dark World brings the hammer punch. Chris once again takes on the role of Asgardian sex god. He's smokin hot. Hands down. It certainly helps that the man can act and by Valhalla does he have fun doing it! Pair that man next to Tom, as the evil (but likable) Loki, and you've got yourself some man candy goodness that's both tasty and cavity inducing. Girls, we should all LOVE these men. They are awesome in the comics and amazing on the big screen!
Fear not fellow men, you get your share of the action and epic CGI effects. Everything that can be blown up, is. Again and again. Plus you have the very sexy Portman to turn things up a notch. Sexy never looked so good on a scientist!
I found myself laughing in this film more then any of the previous Marvel flicks. Time was taken to make the audience laugh and join right in on the adventure. Sure, there's plot holes. Sure, none of the science makes sense. But really, who cares! It's all covered up with the fluff, but done in the best possible way.
Overall, I loved it. Thor can take off his shirt for the whole movie, Loki too. And Heimdall. And Fandral. But I digress. This film is exactly what would you would expect to pay for. Plus some extra laughs for the road.
Make sure to stay past the final credits to get that sneak peak of what's to come!
