Only two years after his debut on the big screen, Thor returns with a more spectacular sequel, full of action and above all, with that sense of humor that has characterized the first.
Thor: The Dark World leads us directly to Asgard, with Thunder God (Chris Hemsworth) who longs to meet with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), at the same time he has to face the Dark Elves led by their king Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) intending to destroy all the worlds that make up the cosmos, taking advantage of the Convergence, a fact that happens every 5000 years and is about to happen. He will need the Aether, which Jane Foster finds in the first place…
However, it is Loki (Tom Hiddleston) the villain that captures all the attention in the film. Something that didn’t surprise to us, as he has become one of the most popular Marvel characters.
The film reinforces the link between Thor and Loki. Proving that Thor needs Loki to succeed.
As for the performances, Chris Hemsworth does a good job again as Thor, seeing a big change in the character. In the first film, he was a cocky and only cared hammering everything he could. But now, he cares about others and because of the events that happened in The Avengers, the damage done is causing civil wars and as Prince of Asgard he must save these worlds to restore peace.
He also doesn’t forget about Jane Foster and this is bringing problems to him, if he wants to be king of Asgard, he can not marry a girl of Midgard (Earth). The rest of the characters meet their goal even having a little screen time, the Asgardians and friends of Thor: Sif, Fandral and Hogun.
Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, is the most anticipated by fans. With that in mind, Joss Whedon added more scenes for this character. The rest of the actors do a great job, closing a circle of good actors who give more quality to the film. A curious fact is the character of Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) that has many comic scenes during the course of the film. Definitely something that has made the public more entertained.
Natalie Portman, as Jane Foster, despite her few appearances on screen and running in the background (although her role was important) made a fantastic role.
The direction on this occasion lies with Alan Taylor, whose most recent work was in the TV show of Game of Thrones.
Malekith ends up being a more generic villain and his intentions are never entirely justified.
The relationship of Jane and Thor needs further development, not even look like a couple, rather a couple of friends with mixed feelings -existed problem from Thor (2011).
Thor: The Dark World is comical, funny and full of action. This release opens the doors of a Marvel universe that still has much to tell.
Loki’s performance stands out, no doubt he is present in the best scenes, the better one in the company of Thor … I say no more!
