Thor: The Dark World (2013) Film Review


Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is back in his world, miserably obsessing over the girl who got away, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Then something happens to her that makes her weird and disappear and come back and stuff, and he has the excuse to see her and take her to his world. And then the bad guys come. And all nine realms are lining up and the other professor man, Erik (Stellan Skarsgard) is nude at Stonehenge. And then they all have big fights and (spoiler alert – or is it really?) the good guys win.

It’s ok. It’s not terrible, but it is far from being good. Natalie Portman has made a lot of good films, and played some pretty interesting characters, but this ain’t one. She’s apparently extremely smart but is so wussy and uninteresting. There are some big explosions and cool effects but really, I don’t care. At least Loki (Tom Hiddleston) was in it a bit. He’s a great character – I could watch him all day.
