Review: Thor: The Dark World

             Thor: The Dark World is a continuation and expansion on the Norse-god superhero and the Marvel comics cinematic universe. It has some very funny moments in the first act but none of which take away from the excitement and final moments of the final act. The opening moments as well as the first 30 minutes establish the good guys as well as the bad guys. We are given a brief glimpse into the life of the main antagonist known as Malekith. ; an otherworldly Elf bent on destroying worlds with a powerful weapon.
               
                The film gives the viewer more of an in depth look into Asguard while also showing life on earth with Jane Foster played by the charismatic Natalie Portman . Many of the shots of Asguard make you almost think that you are watching Star Wars, Star Trek or one of the many Man Of Steel franchise films. The visual aspect of the film is near breathtaking.


                The main plot of the film is actually really good. I admit that the prologue seemed a bit familiar but the action as well as the character development of  Lady Sif , played by Jaime Alexander is great as well as that of Thors' mother played by Rene Russo . Anthony Hopkins shined once again as Odin. In parts of this film, one could actually believe that they are in a comic book come to life. Some notable characters that did not get enough screen time include Himdall played by Idris Elba and Volstagg played by Ray Stevenson . It will be interesting to see where their character development leads in Thor 3.


                All in all Thor: The Dark World delivers in terms of action, dialogue and visual mastery.  There was a love story between Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Lady Sif that I would have liked to have seen explored- albeit not in the source material , it still would have been fun. Thor :The Dark World shapes up to be a funny, engaging and entertaining sequel. Let’s just say that there will be a ton of surprises for the god of Thunder in the next Marvel installment !
