Thor: The Dark World is better, funnier and definitely a far cry from the first one. In the movie, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) asked for Loki’s help (Tod Hiddleston) to fight an evil Dark Elf’s sinister plan, from unleashing the Aether, an ancient force of infinite destruction.
The super villain Malekith is planning to annihilate the Nine Realms. As the king of the Realm Asgard, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) orders his son Thor to end Malekith’s intentions.
Additionally the “Guardians of the Galaxy” is slowly introduced in this film, it is an upcoming science fiction film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team.
Since most of the scenes are played out in Asgard and other distant dimensions, director Taylor did a great job in delivering his most compelling setpieces. The backdrop is a straight up fantasy world, serving as a good crossover from the first movie to the marvel Comics Asgard.
Overall I’m giving 8 stars out of 10 to Thor: The Dark World, both for its story line and great landscape.
