The movie does a decent job of picking up where "The Avengers" left off which I thought was pretty interesting (you know, instead of continuing the story of the first "Thor" movie). There was a great balance of action, humor and romance in the film and though the story-line lagged a bit at times (I was expecting more from Natalie Portman's character for some odd reason), I still enjoyed the movie as a whole. Marvel fans will not be disappointed.

This is a refreshing example of continual improvement. Any hero is only so good as the villain he is fighting. Or the brother he is tolerating. And here, both are just that. Perfect embodiments of comic book characters. Well, Loki of the movies is by class better than comic books, thanks to Tom Hiddleston. But, that aside, this movie stands on its own, with a well paced story, enough of internal turmoil to fuel all the external fight and amazing visuals. I would say that not a moment of a screen time has been wasted. There is a dose of humor to balance the drama, almost Shakespearean tension, and it is a decent homage to Norse mythology. There is even evident character development that holds on its own as well as the continuation of character arcs from Marvel movie universe. This is really a decent cinema experience, and you should see it. I am looking forward to the next one.

Loved the movie! The actors are very believable, and I think the writers did an excellent job in showing what Thor's life was like after the Avengers.

I laughed. I was surprised in a number of spots. I was sad, near tears once or twice. Loved the very end (after the credits make sure you stick around!) Will be seeing again Sunday and again Monday. Love Thor!

Definitely worth seeing. It's much better than the original. It's got laughs, tears, and everything in between.
