Thor: the Dark World is surprisingly great for its genre. I didn’t think it was going to be as good as Captain America or Iron Man. I found myself laughing when they had references to other super hero films. Thor: The Dark World starts when Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is restoring peace in the nine realms. Then we catch up with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). She is trying to get her life back together after Thor left. She is still a scientist and trying to find a date. She meets three kids who find this special type of force and Jane disappears into another dimension and touches something called the aether, which puts dark matter into her. That’s bad because she could die or become evil. Meanwhile, somewhere in the nine realms, Malkeith–King of the Dark Elves–has a plan to attack Asgard, the world Thor inhabits. (Asgard is fake anyway, it’s not really a planet. If you get a science test on the solar system, you’ll probably fail if you put down Asgard.) Then Thor has to try to fight the dark elves and save Jane Foster. He goes and gets his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to help him.

There are great special effects, especially the parts on Asgard. Malkeith (Christopher Eccleston) is a great villain. If you’re ?a Thor fan, you will love this film.
