Thor--The Dark World. Everything I thought it would be and more. It was very thrilling, moving, exciting and kept you on the edge. What made it so good also, is the fact that they were not tearing up New York this time, but over across the pond in England. The actors/actresses were great. The fact that the queen got killed and the brothers advantage their mother's death was great. This movie is setup for the next Thor and I'm fan that can't wait for two or three years for the next one. Every character played a major part for the role and it was good to see them all have more than just one line. I have always been a fan of Thor since I was a kid and I'm sixty two years olds, still loving the character, evening more so as I get older. I found myself somewhere for two hours and it felt great to escape to a world of make believe. No matter what the critics might say, if you like entertainment such as I do, you will escape to Asgard with Thor and friends.

Fantastic movie. Loved the way the relationships were explored. Not just the romance, but between Loki, Thor, mother, father, friends, etc.
Great mix of humor, suspense, action, dialog.
There were some definite cheesy moments, and a couple fight scenes where I wasn't sure if I was watching Star Wars or Thor, but overall loved it.
This was the first movie where I actually felt compassion for Loki, even to the point of rooting for him.
Plenty of depth, and so much attention to detail. I'll be thinking on this one for days. I rarely enjoy re-watching films, but could have turned right back around and watched this one again.

good solid movie. The visuals were awesome and the story was pretty good. You need to see the first one though to understand a lot of the undertone

This movie was engaging, action packed, funny, and has some interesting twists. I loved it! It is one of the best movies I have seen this year!

I'm a huge Marvel fan, particularly of Thor and Loki. However, my anticipation for the film was useless. Horrible pacing, video game-quality CGI, too much time spent with obnoxious and pointless characters (Darcy, Ian, and Selvig were hopeless), wooden acting from Natalie Portman, emotional/dramatic scenes were replaced with "humor" within two to five minutes, making it so that the characters didn't have proper time to react...it was a mess.
The only bright spot in The Dark World was the relationship I came to see - brothers Thor and Loki. The scenes with these two, however, did not last long enough. Hopefully Marvel keeps these two around for a third outing for Thor, but ditches Jane and the rest of Midgard.
