Thor The Dark World Review: Hammer Time!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

As Thor: The Dark World debuts in theaters, it should hardly surprise that yet again Tom Hiddleston steals the show in a Marvel movie. But, this time out, Hiddleston’s Loki is not the villain. By having Chris Eccleston’s Malekith serve as the Thor sequel villain, filmmakers are free to make the film a story that is simultaneously about redemption and revenge.

Just came from this movie,and plan to go back and see it again....and again. I'll make it a double feature,along with HUNGER GAMES:CATCHING FIRE on Thanksgving weekend. I enjoyed the film just that much,and the humorous elements help to lighten the mood a little,and make this film a bit more user-friendly than the first one(good ol' Stan Lee and his cameos). Anybody who sticks around after the end credits will be treated to a teaser of a possible set-up for the third THOR film.
After that one,I guess Chrid Hemsworth will be ready to move on.
Trust me,this man's gonna have a career beyond the hammer and the cape.
