Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Thor: The Dark World.
Christianity Today - 9/10 by Jackson CuidonThor 2's makers apparently decided that the best course of action is to take everything that made the original the camp hit it was, and ramp it all up to eleven.
NOW Toronto - 8/10 by Norman WilnerDon't worry about its grim title and galactic stakes. For all its self-seriousness, Thor: The Dark World is a very silly movie. And that's why it works.
SciFiNow - 8/10 by Jonathan HatfullWith a good sense of humour, strong action set pieces and Hiddleston and Hemsworth on top form, it's just great fun.
eFilmCritic.com - 8/10 by Rob GonsalvesIt brings some awe and brawny excitement into comic-book cinema.
Slant Magazine - 8/10 by R. Kurt OsenlundSuperhero movies aren't going anywhere, nor is their standard, on-to-the-next-fight structure, so it's heartening to see a gem that grandly and amusingly fills in the blanks.
Las Vegas Review-Journal - 8/10 by Christopher LawrenceWith its dark elves, some kind of lava beast known as the Kurse, and too much time spent walking around in cloaks, the sequel too often feels like watered-down Tolkien.
Portland Oregonian - 8/10 by Jamie S. RichThe big battle in Thor: The Dark World is one of Marvel’s more genuinely rousing sequences. Once this movie gets warmed up, it’s warm through and through.
HitFix - 8/10 by Drew McWeenyIs it possible to be both overstuffed and too slight? If so, that's Thor: The Dark World in a nutshell.
Total Film - 8/10 by Neil SmithMarvel’s man with the mallet does all that’s required of him in a breakneck sequel that’s never dark for long. Next time, though, we’ll have more Loki and fewer elves.
indieWIRE - 8/10 by Eric KohnLike Whedon's whip-smart "Avengers" screenplay, Thor: The Dark World manages to acknowledge the inherently silly nature of its premise while compellingly asserting that, hey, sometimes it's fun to suspend your disbelief when the results look this good.
Empire - 8/10 by Chris Hewitt (1)For a movie that has dark in its title, and which is — yes! — darker (people die, Asgard is grimier, as befitting Alan Taylor’s Game Of Thrones heritage), Thor 2.0 is consistently amusing.
The A.V. Club - 7/10 by A.A. Dowd Forget the fairy-tale romance between Jane and her hammer-wielding hunk. The real emotional center of the Thor series is this sibling rivalry, more compelling than any climactic battle royale or winking teaser for the next chapter.
