Thor: The Dark World Review
Time: 1hr 51min
So I got to see this movie two days after it came out since I had to work late on the Friday it came out. I don't mind. Really I don't since it was worth waiting for. It was an amazing movie and can't wait till it comes out on DVD or Blu-ray! Everyone that has watched the Marvel movies really have to watch Thor: The Dark World! You won't regret it!
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is cleaning up the mess that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has made of all the realms. But he misses the woman he loves. Jane is the only thing on him mind and he can't enjoy even the celebrations of winning battles. (poor guy! we get to see him shirtless! *swoon)
Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) has never given up hope that Thor would come back to her. Even though he didn't bother to contact her when he was in New York (Avengers movie). She, Darcy and Darcy's assistant find something strange. Jane vanishes for five hours after being sucked into another world where the Ether takes hold in her body. The Ether has the power to bring darkness to all the realms. The very thing that the Dark Elves want to happen. The same ones that are supposed to be dead. They have been waiting for all nine realms to align for over a thousand years. Now it is their time to fight back.
Thor takes Jane to Asgard where the Dark Elves attack trying to get the Ether from her body. They fail but they hover threateningly over Asgard waiting for the right time. Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) is the ruling Dark Elf. Thor has to trust Loki to help him and Jane get out of Asgard and to Malekith's home planet. After that Malekith takes the Ether out of her and Thor tries to destroy the Ether once and for all. They fail miserably and in the end Loki dies and they are left trapped on that world.
When they do manage to get back to Earth they have to face a Malekith who controls the Ether and who is closer than ever to bringing all the realms back to the darkness. Anything is possible till the worlds go out of alignment. It is a race against time and space for them.
Will the world be lost? Will Thor be able to stay with Jane? Who all dies in the movie? Is Loki really dead??
I loved the portals at the end of this movie. They were so funny and brought many things into the world. I loved every minute of it...well except for the two women beside me that insisted on being heard over the action. Whether they were laughing, crying, or saying "I don't like him!" (they said that 2X!). Who cares what they think about Loki!? Who doesn't love Loki? I mean he's my favourite character. Sorry Thor! :D Oh! Stay till after the credits! You don't want to miss the ending now do you?!
