I liked this Thor movie better than the first action-wise. The special effects looked really good. I disliked the cussing (most of which is said by Darcy) and the "comedic" nudity (bleh...). However, the dialogue was clever, and I liked how Loki and Thor and Jane all teamed up. And the relationship between Loki and Thor is the best; it's interesting and probably the deepest part of the series. Thor and Loki are the best characters. Overall, a good-enough movie experience. However, the cussing and "comedic" nudity spoiled part of it for me. I hope the next movie will be better.

This movie is awesome. Only because they gave Tom/Loki a bigger role. It probably wouldn't have been that good if you weren't able to see Thor and Loki's "brother issues", but I still would have watched it.

Missed the comedic undertone of the first film, but thought that Hiddleston killed it in this one and really had room to shine more than the first film.

Lots of action (if weird), odd effects, no discernable rationale, and a very, very obvious setup for a sequel.

This was laborious to watch near the end, the "fighting" sequence was ill choreographed. I'm glad I watched Thor and Thor: The Dark World out of sequence because Thor was much more entertaining and thoughtful in terms of action. It really hurts a film when its final battle scene lacks passion and strategy.

Admittedly the plot could have been much better, it was rather on the weak side but overall, the movie was entertaining.

Rest of Review is in Comments Section: *******Tinkering, Thinking, Thoughts: (1) Fandral, a red headed, comic relief guy, he had seemed to me to be a lot like the man garbed in black, the hero, from “Princess Bride” movie, this because, he having great sword swashbuckling, fencing skills… and he having this dapper-dan, gung-ho, devenaire demeanor to boot! (2) About time they, the creators, made Loki to look like a champion chevalier (although, at most, it may have been but in temporary guise, a makeshift illusion)! (3) Clothing: I noticed, and maybe I’m wrong here, a sort of trend among the cape colors worn. And as if we were in some Star Trek Enterprise episode, those who were wearing yellow were generally going to die… while those donning red garments, like Thor and/or Odin, lived! Once again, I could be woefully wrong! (4)Some light, laughing, moments of levity came from when Thor and Dark Elf Lord Dude fervently fought! (5) Places of Interest: (The Nine Realms of the World are approaching an inevitable violent, and potentially problematic planetary catastrophe)… And these are the three places of interest within this, Thor's second movie: Svartilheim: the dark elves kingdom… Asgard: the cosmic kingdom, and pantheon place, pertaining to Valhalla, and its Norse champion race… Earth: humans mostly inhabit this place and refer to planet they live on as with this listed, nominal name… (6) I generally felt well immersed into the Asgardian world as that had been where most of film physically remained during movies' daunting exploration. And so, while when discussing misanthropy and how I feel about watching and hearing humans in movies, I am most merry where when I am most seemingly far away from what others would call home! And so Thor mostly met that criterion of mine. So… Rating for Thor as this being his second movie, I rate, a rating of: 5.0/5.0; Xandor Who... *********Characters and Character Summaries: Relatable or not relatable? Of course they’re relatable… aren’t we as well, a giant galactic, cosmic colossal family?! Thor: Is Odin’s official son; he is Lord Over the Thunderous Cloudy, Heaven Skies; he wields and handles his hammer, the magnificent mallet, Mjoliner… Loki: is Lord of Illusions and is Master Magician Trickster; has nefarious intentions at times; he is highly capable in transforming simple parlor tricks from his fantasy into other people’s realities; he is Odin’s unofficial son or is Odin’s official stepson; he is noted as being a trickster; he is pissed at his father, Odin, and his brother, Thor, for what he believes is lack of respect from them due to him… Jane Foster: Thor’s Earthbound girlfriend, who becomes the unlikely wielder of the cosmic, Asgardian, special air, it being called Aether… Odin: Husband to Frig and Father to Loki and Thor; he is also known as the All Father; he is King of Asgard… Malekith: he is the dark elf warlord in this movie, and he is trying, yet again, to harbinger in an end of the world scenario as like when he had tried from many millenniums ago… Heimdell: an oculant, seer-like, oracle-like, specialist, who vigilantly keeps eye over the rainbow bridge and eye over all of the Nine Realms… Frig(ga): Thor’s wife, and it is she, who cares for both her sons, Thor and Loki… Bohr: Odin’s Father and is one who fought the dark elves from eons and epochs ago, and in an enchiridion book, it says that he, Bohr, had seen the dark elves defeated and destroyed… Darcy: Jane’s friend; she wears a dark red cap and is openly plucky… Lady Sif: an Asgardian, guardian, female warrior; she is as a thorn in Thor’s bare butt behind, this because she pesters him about his venturing off to Earth to where he would visit his girlfriend… **********Tags Summary: Norse mythology, Norse deities, super heroes, warriors, weapon wielding warriors. -X; Who

After the aftermath of the New York invasion in The Avengers, Thor now fights to restore balance and order to the Nine Realms. But an ancient evil known as the Dark Elves, led by the ruthless Malekith seeks to plunge the universe into eternal darkness. Now Thor must form an uneasy alliance with his villainous brother Loki and reunite with Jane Foster as he embarks on his most dangerous journey yet, which will force him to sacrifice everything he loves.

Other: If one were wanting to explore more of the Norse mythic and cryptic world of Asgard, one may want check-out historian and bard, Snorri Sturluson, from his supposed 12th century A.D. land and time ward. In my mind at moment, I believe it was he, Snorri, who was depicted and credited for being the one or as the one who started the classic Icelandic tale of old! I could be wrong. -X; Who

(Loki) I thought you said you knew how to fly this thing?
(Thor) I said, "How hard can it be?".
(Loki) Well whatever you're doing brother, I suggest you do it faster.
(Thor) Shut up, Loki.

Odin: One son who doesn't want the throne, another who wanted it too much. Is this to be my legacy?

Thor: Loki died with honour. I shall try to live the same. Let THAT be your legacy.

Odin: I can not give you my blessing, nor can I wish you good luck. Even if I could, it could only come from my heart. Go.

[Thor offers up his hammer]

Odin: It is yours, if you are worthy enough to wield it.

Thor: I shall try to be. Thank you.

[leaves]

Loki: [appears from Odin's guise] No... thank YOU.

“Frig(ga)”, a Norwegian, mythical name that could etymologically mean same as word that means when two individuals have intercourse with another, or to mean to rub or to mean to make friction against something, is used as an expression by Odin in the movie when seemingly to show concern for his wife being stabbed… but could also be interpreted to be as an interjection statement to show vexing distress!

[The alleged crazy physicist, who was committed to mental ward, says]: “There’s nothing more reassuring than realizing the rest of the world is more crazy than you are.” *This said right after a flock of birds disappeared from sky’s view and then reappeared out from earth ground… this event happening after the doctor was released from mental word. Now I can concur with the good doctor statement as I having had the luxury, have stayed several times at such mental wards. And so after he, the supposed, crazy, physicist says his statement, he relinquishes his drugs that the ward had “nicely” “given” him. …I have found that drug pushers and their drug enforcing henchmen, which could be family members or one’s supposed friends, are the biggest bullies and biggest proponents of defilement in people! This my personal, poignant, message to all those whom think they are doing others and the world a favor by their bully actions!*
