I thoroughly enjoyed the first THOR movie with Hemsworth and Portman. However,
THOR: THE DARK WORLD bored me out of my mind.
The first half wasn't too bad. Starting in the middle, the story got way overly complicated and didn't make any sense at all. Three-Quarters of the way through the movie I was checking my watch trying to tell how much longer it had to run. I was happy I needed to use the rest room as it gave me a chance to leave the theatre for a while.
Chris Hemsworth was trying so hard to affect a deep voice that his words regularly got lost in his throat and were hard to understand many times. Natalie Portman had little to do and what she did do didn't make sense. Tom Hiddleston is a terrific presence as Loki and it's a pleasure to see him in what scenes he does.
The ending made no sense whatever. I won't give details but there were so many unjustified actions and confusing inconsistencies that I couldn't wait for it to be over.

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.

This movie rocks. Chris Hemsworth is wonderful again as Thor and Loki is the king of the one liners in this movie. I have already seen it twice and will probably buy it when it comes out. It has twists and unexpected happenings.

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 good blend of action, drama, and humor, Thor 2 is well paced and worth the ticket price.

Thor: The Dark World in 3D was an all around good movie. No it wasn't mind blowingly good, but it was a definite improvement over the first Thor film...which let's face it was basically a 2 hour trailer for the upcoming Avengers film.
I love the little plot twists they threw in there, and really enjoyed the snarky and witty humor that the marvel movies have become known for
