Natalie Portman is so childlike and Hemsworth is huge. A more womanly female lead would've been nice. Unlike everyone else, my first thought was not LOTR but Superman. Here we go again, evil person in chains brought before the king or council to be sentenced to some impenetrable eternity. Kneel before Zod, Loki. Overall, this was good clean fun with funny dialogue, even if the film did lack originality and stole from other movies.

I loved the first movie; didn't like this one. I found it boring.

There's something about the Thor superhero that doesn't fly with me. The extraterrestrial Norse immortals involved with the mortal Earthling morons is slightly cheezy and definitely contrived. And it definitely felt like a ripoff of Star Wars and Lord of The Rings. Natalie Portman gives a feeling of being totally out of place, and the pairing between she and Chris Hemsworth is a big mistake. It doesn't work. But aside from all that, I did enjoy it a bit more than the first one.

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. 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.

A rousing continuation to the Marvel cinematic universe, this one features Thor traveling through multiple worlds as he faces a threat in the form of a ruthless dark elf. The return of Loki is quite welcome, and the cast, both returning and previous actors, are well placed in their roles. And expanding our look into other realms comes across well in the story, particularly in the look of Malekith, a familiar foe from the comics.

i've become pretty picky in my "old age". i've seen a lot of great action/fantasy/sci fi films and from the first scene of this movie when it totally used the whole "lord of the rings" story as background, it was all downhill from there. it just could not redeem itself after that. i mean come on. an army of dark elves, a legendary king that united his forces to defeat him and prevent him from using some all powerful weapon that would unleash untold evil across the realms, then defeating those elves, but letting the head evil elf get away and not actually destroying the all powerful weapon but instead burying it "so deep it would never be found"? enough with the lord of the rings deja vu stuff already! and unfortunately, i just do not like natalie portman as an actress. after the 2nd star wars trilogy, i can't take her seriously. which is why i did like her in "Your Highness" at least. she needs to just do more comedy or something.

A disappointing follow up to the original, this movie lacks any character or depth whatsoever, the action is sub par, and the story is one of THE most unoriginal possible stories conceivable. There's also a love story arc forcibly rammed in there because <sarcasm> a woman couldn't possibly enjoy a movie without one </sarcasm>. Every single actors performance falls flat on its face and that paired with god awful pacing make this one incredibly regrettable view. This movie reads a LOT like your typical, incoherent, Michael Bay explosion porn. Fan or not this one is a definite pass.
