Best Marvel movie to date!

By nickshaw2814
This movie was amazing! Great action, visually stunning, great story, and the biggest surprise was it was very funny. I personally enjoyed it more than even the Avengers. Make sure to stay after the...

Fantastic!

By redvelvetrose
I had high expectations for this film and I was NOT disappointed! The entire cast is wonderful, but Tom Hiddleston (as Loki) stole the show yet again! Loki definitely needs his own movie with Tom...

Must see for all fans of Hero movies!!!

By aandw1421
Loved it! Great actions, story flowed nicely and the scenes after the credits...should definitely sit tight to the very end (classic Stan Lee style). Would highly recommend for anyone who has been...

Worth seeing on the big screen

By nwt303
Your typical super hero movie. Great special effects, decent humor and good plot. If you liked the first Thor then I would say check it out....

A fantastic addition to the Marvel stables and a great movie on its own.

By shokk
Thor: The Dark World is a welcome sequel, bringing the Asgardians back to the big screen. We catch up with Thor after the events of The Avengers where he is still in the role of earth’s defender. A...
