here's Steyin's review of what he can say

GREAT I give it a solid 8.5/10 after initial viewing, and right now I'd dare to rank it 2nd or 3rd among the Marvel films. (I put Avengers at #1, IM at #2 and CA at #3). If you liked the first film, you'll like this one even more I'd think.

As far as what I can say:

-Running time is 111/112 minutes (with credits), though it doesn't feel too short or too long, just right honestly. Though I do feel some may say it moves along a little fast, but it is really an enjoyable ride.
-Every character gets a moment to shine, even if it is brief
-The comedy is great. Sure it can be a little much in a certain scene, but a good balance overall with everything else (very subtle when it needed to be), unlike another film coughIM3cough
-Some nice emotional scenes (can't give specifics)
-Good action and great CGI/effects.
-Characters/interactions are great, even better this time around, including Natalie Portman
-Music was nice, though I can't really recall the score from the first film
-Sets/other realms were beautiful and well done. Asgard shined even more this time.
-Mid credit and end credit scenes, both great.


If there was a downside I'd say that the threat of the film was pretty large but feels like its resolved too simply, though in an interesting way. Also, I love Darcy.

I think this film will do very well and easily surpass the BO for the first film. I'll answer questions if I feel I can, but in a while as I have some TV to catch up on lol.

What can I say, but this pleases me greatly. I wasn't overly satisfied with Thor 1 - I enjoyed it, but it left me wanting more.

In the film - though i'm all for a longer movie too, I loved it! I would have liked to see more of Thor's character growth and progression when he was turned into a mortal. I felt like it happened very quickly to be convincing enough for me. Meeting an old, frail human and helping them in their last moments, or witnessing human selflessness and learning its value from humans, etc.

Also, there was nothing inherently remarkable about Jane Foster - as much as I love Natalie Portman - her character was fairly bland to me. Thor just suddenly falls in love with her for no real reason that I could see. Again, Thor is incredibly old and has seen more sights that you or I ever would combined. What is it about THIS woman that makes him choose her?

Finally, and it's a little gripe - The earth scenes were far too small scale - we get glimpses of a small town (still amazing that it was built just for this movie!) and a small crash site but I wanted to see more - rolling hills, forests, bigger sets etc.

Yeah, it wasn't explained well enough, about Jane that is. Just seems to ME that Thor sees something IN Jane that is fresh, curiosity of a child in an adult.

The town was part of a set used in a couple westerns actually. They just updated some of the buildings. I wish I knew which westerns though.

I wanted more of Thor learning humlity and a longer Destroyer/Thor battle personally

Yes! In any case, I'm sure Thor 2 will at least give us the big sets we wanted

oooo I hadn't thought of that Angel!

The Young Readers novel has Odin basically suggesting Thor has made a couple lame excuses to go see Jane between the Avengers visit and Thor 2. Basically Odin says don't go.

Major agreement here. Love is all kinds of wacky and unpredictible.

From Kervyn Cloete @TheKervynator:

"So, mainly positive comments so far from the first international press junket screening for Thor: The Dark World."


From Damian Hewlett @DamiamHewlett

'Watched Thor 2, so good! Well worth a watch"

Not sure who Damian Hewlett is but did this press junket consist of real critics or fanboy website blogger type critics?

If it's real critics that don't have a bias towards liking superhero/comic films then I'm excited to hear that most of the comments were positive.

I quite liked it. I didn't see Jane's actions as "falling in love" per se. I saw it as initially being scientific curiousity and an attraction, but not love YET. Hemsworth, Hiddleston, Hopkins, and Skaarsgard were all excellent and Portman, Elba, Alexander, and the Warriors three were all quite good despite having smaller roles. There wasn't a single BAD performance in the movie. The movie balanced the humor and darker moments well for the most part. Now for some negatives.
1. Asgard looked good overall, but it came across and too cleam and glossy in places.
2. Rene Russo was wasted, I hope that she gets more screentime in TDW.
3. I liked Jane, but I wish she'd been given a little more to do, the same applies to Sif, and the Warriors 3.
4. Laufey was intimidating and Colm Feore was quite good, but he wasn't in the movie nearly enough and needed more to do. His death was cool though.
5. The Destroyer was defeated WAY TOO EASILY!!
Overall, I'd give Thor and 8.5/10.

Uh, this thread is for reviews of Thor: The Dark World. We've had more than three years to hash and rehash Thor already.

Can we leave this thread for reviews/reactions and that alone? We've got other threads to discuss stuff like the first Thor...

Anyway, some more reactions, not sure if posted:

@TasminLucia Thor 2 is a brilliant film. Can't wait for you all to watch it. Loki is my favourite character. Complex but fun... @twhiddleston @ThorMovies

@Kuato_lives It was alright, I liked it better than Thor 1 but less than Avengers Assemble.


@ephratamain
We saw an advance of Thor: The Dark World today. It is amazing! You are going to LOVE it!


@Nedopak
#ThorDarkWorld was SO GOOD. Prepare to laugh! Studios need to hire TV directors more often. Kudos Alan Taylor. Oh and Loki is amazing!


@DamianHewlett
Watched Thor 2, so good! Well worth a watch


@RealTimVincent
Just seen #thor2 preview if you like the first you will love the 2nd Lordoftherings meets startrek


@coconutprince
All I can say, and everyone brought their A game, is LOKI OWNS #Thor2 Just sayin lol!!!

He said wasn't happy with what was IN Thor1 basically we were discussing what was missing that time around.

But my second comment to Angel is about the Dark World.
the young readers novel has Odin telling Thor not to go to Earth even tho Thor does sense something wrong. Thor then goes to Heimdall to see what Jane is doing and while Heimdall is watching Jane disappears from Heimdall's sight. which is why Thor goes to Earth.

I think they're regular does, but their opinion is actually more important anyway since they're the ones that determine the successs of a film.
