Marvel keeps getting better.

By jesz6913
Considering the great job they did with the first movie, Thor: The Dark World was even better with a closer view of Asgard and the life of Thor and the other realms. Still very much in love with Jane...

Thor, The Dark World

By onebluedolphin
We loved this sequel to the original Thor movie. There is never a boring moment, and the 3-D IMAX was wonderfully done. Absolutely great entertainment, and Chris Hemsworth is marvelous in his role as...

Thor: The sequel is better than the first!

By rb269
I loved this movie. The movie was full of action and a dash of good comedy. Great movie, much better than IronMan 3. One of the best Marvel movies!...

Awesome!

I enjoyed this movie more than the first one. Without spoiling anything, the action and story are great and Loki really makes the film even better. Can't wait to see it again....

Lots of fun!

By musicmann1967
This is a really exciting and funny movie. The effects are great, and there's plenty of action. The dialog is smart and funny for this kind of movie. Everyone is engaging and does their job well....

Definitely worth seeing!

By minpinfamily
