Movie Review

One of the Three Warriors is on the bench at first simply because there is no room for him, hints of a love triangle with Thor, Jane, and Jamie Aleksandrs Sif are still nothing but this, Idris Elbas Heimdall gets a big fighting moment, and then passes, and Portman sleeps in the second act, and in the third, he becomes a girl in distress again. After that, the movie doesn't stumble again but starts awkwardly.

There is no doubt that it will be very popular, but unfortunately, this movie has not made much progress compared to its predecessor. This is another franchise product of the Marvel series. There is not much inspiration in the green screen world of CGI, nor the liveliness and novelty of Thor's previous release directed by Kenneth Branagh. This is the sequel to Thor (2011) and the eighth movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The plot of this movie is reminiscent of Jack Kirby's fairy palace legend and introduces elements of Thor comics by Walter Simonson. In the movie, Thor and Loki (Hiddleston) join forces to save nine worlds from the dark elves. In June 2011, Walt Disney Studios set the release date for the sequel "Thor" on July 26, 2013, in which Chris Hemsworth will re-play the protagonist.

However, if you're new to Thor or the Marvel movies in general, you'll want to at least watch Thor before heading out to The Dark World, as the latter is indeed a sequel. If you're already a Thor fan thanks to the comics or the first movie, it's safe to say you'll love Dark World.

Now that Disney owns Marvel, I don't see Thor getting any more exciting or relevant than a superhero. Even Thor himself does not seem to deserve much of the honor of being the leader, or the glory of all the hammer throws he makes.

So thank goodness Hiddleston Loki, still pleases, even if the story no longer revolves around him. Hiddleston manages to handle the scale here with Loki and the scenes between the two actors/characters are especially interesting. This time, Thor's friends have nothing to do: Tadanobu Asano's Hogun returns to his homeworld at the start of the race.

Linked character arcs, Thors struggles to balance his love for Jane with his duties as heir to the throne, Loki's lust for power is only partially constrained by his love for his adoptive mother, and the couples continue to be rival brothers, but they are not. irresistible. The real drama only occurs when Tom Hiddleston appears on the screen as Thor's half-brother, Loki, a dark soul. Loki was imprisoned for treason, but it was revealed that Thor needed his help to defeat the dark elves.

In the dark world, Luo Gene was imprisoned for the crimes committed in the Avengers incident, but when the dark elf returns, Thor must work with his brother to save nine worlds. After Marvel, Thor, and Marvel-Avengers, Thor fought to restore order in space... But the return of an ancient race led by a vengeful Marekis plunged the universe into darkness. Now Thor and Loki must work together to save Jane, Earth, Asgard, and the other eight existing worlds from destruction.

Back in Asgard, the inevitably rare alignment of the Nine Worlds, this also means that portals to other worlds appear randomly, Thor tells Heimdall (Idris Elba) that Jane is missing, he goes to Earth to make sure she is safe, takes her to their home To see the healers, they do not know how to treat her, Odin warns that the ethereal infection will eventually kill her and that her return means a predicted disaster. The release of the ether awakened Malekith and he and his group attack Asgard, and during the battle, the mother of Thor and Lokis Frigga (Rene Russo) is killed. One orders Thor to do nothing but against his father's will, frees his evil brother as he knows Malekith's secret portal, they will try to use Jane to lure him and confront him and makes a pact that Loki can avenge his mother's death. When her body unknowingly becomes the master of the aether, making her the target of the reanimated Malekith, Jane is carried off to Asgard by Thor, who is supposed to inherit her father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), as king of the kingdom.

These elves, led by Malekiss (the almost unrecognizable Christopher Ecclestone), intend to restart the destruction of the nine that Thor vowed to defend through the world alignment once every 5000 years and a known mysterious energy source. Kingdoms-our earth is one of them. Get there as ether. They discovered that Maleki's intends to restore the rule of the dark elves by releasing the ether at the Greenwich Fusion Center. Thor fights Maleki's through various portals and multiple worlds until a portal separates them, making Maleki's unparalleled on earth.

After Thor eventually travels to Earth, he and Jane discover that Malekith “hides dark energy within the Earth because he knows that Odin does not care about Earth and therefore exploits Odin's disinterest in Earth. Land to deceive him. " ... Jenkins set out to create a Romeo and Juliet movie in which Jane ended up on Earth and Thor was forbidden to come and rescue her. The Dark World should have given Jane a better reason to stay here than the fact that she is playing the body of the host of an extraterrestrial sphere of protoplasm.

Loki, for example, with whom Thor is forced to reluctantly cooperate in his fight against the dark elves, is simply incredible. In particular, Loki's first real scene with Thor is insanely funny, Hiddleston is the perfect comedic counterpart to Hemsworth.

Hemsworth, like Hiddleston, has grown in the role through previous appearances in Thor and The Avengers. In his third appearance, Tom Hiddleston Loki is so accustomed to this role that he can steal every scene in which he appears.

This time, without the sin of arrogance to overcome, Thor himself looks a little duller this time, through no fault of Hemsworth's solid and cute acting and stereoscopically improved pectoral muscles. The fraternal feud between him and Thor takes a truly intriguing turn when it becomes clear that the two will have to join forces to stop Malekith - a development wisely played out for the tense character's laughter and drama.

When he talks to each other, it becomes abundantly clear that over-comedy is permeating the film. Thor, Jane, Loki, Sif, Fandral, Wolstagg, and Odin all make one-line sounds, while assistant Darcy Lewis (Cat Dennings), astrophysicist Eric Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard), dines on a date Richard (Chris O. Dode) and trainee Ian Boothby (Jonathan Howard) offers nothing but humorous lines: their characters exist solely for comic interludes.
