Movie Review: Thor the Dark World…better than the first

Better than the first and already earning $86.1 million, owned the weekend box office. Good movie for both guys and girls has all the action the guys need plus the sappy love story for the girls….not to mention the eye candy with a few obligatory ab shots to make a girl swoon. After seeing the first Thor I wasn’t inclined to see the second but at the rate the Marvel movies were going I thought there was a good shot it could be worth it, and it paid off.
 

The story line is more exciting than the first with the entire universe on the line and the love story is that much more developed star-crossed lovers, a god who is king and a mortal how can that ever work. The villains this time are “evil elves” starring Christoper Eccleston, for you Doctor Who Fans, who are trying to bring darkness to the entire universe. I think as much fighting and running around it was not as focused on them as all the action around and caused by the “evil elves.” Bringing back Loki, Tom Hiddleston, the character we all love to hate and giving him a soft side so you hate him a little less is brilliant so when he turns evil again, as all villains do, you will hate him more than ever.
 

Without giving anything away the ending of the movie is shocking and makes you wonder WTF, it definitely provides the jump off for the third installment of the series. Finally, don’t leave the movie before the credits are through as there is another scene starring The Collector, Benicio Del Toro, and creating yet more questions and another hook for the third installment.
