Thor 2: The Dark World

Who knew you could like a Norwegian god with a cape and blond flowing locks who swings a mean hammer so much?

Actually, I was thrilled to see so many of the cast back in action in this fun flick. I especially like the interaction between Thor and Jane and Loki. My favorite part was when Jane punched Loki. He totally deserved it and his reaction is priceless. That's not a spoiler, it's in the trailer. Oh, I finally figured out that Zachary Levi, (the blond sword swinger) is Eugene from Tangled. Who knew?

The story is well plotted and the action moves along. There are intergalactic space time problems to solve, a bad guy to fight and a touch of romance, all the trappings of a good super hero film. It does make you wonder, in a fun way, if this could all happen. I think I'd need the characters of the Big Bang Theory to hash that one out. How cool would that be to have them analyze all the Marvel films? CG work is up to par.

I will miss the one character who won't return for Thor 3. (There is going to be a Thor 3, right?)

Worth view? Yes!

Worth a buy? Yes! I'll be watching this one over again.

Did you think it was a good as Thor I? I did. Are you excited for Captain America 2? I am!
