In a flashback we learn that thousands of years ago a race called the Dark Elves were defeated by the forces of Asgard when they tried to turn the Nine Realms dark using a weapon called Aether. Because Aether cannot be destroyed, they hid it far from the Dark Elves who were banished, but they’ve found it again and plan to use it at the line of the line up of all nine realms and turn the realms dark this time. Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and the forces of Asgard do not have the power to defeat them this time, so Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) must try to work together to try to turn the Dark Elves away and save all the realms. Meanwhile, Jane (Natalie Portman) has found an anomaly much like the one that originally brought Thor to Earth, and while investigating it, she disappears.

I really felt this was a great film. I thoroughly enjoyed the first Thor film, and I think I enjoyed this one just as much if not a bit more. We know the characters better this time, and we’ve seen Thor, Odin, and Loki in other films as well. So now that we know them, we find out about how the Nine Realms were saved originally, and we receive a very suspenseful battle between the Dark Elves and the forces for good. The cinematography is fantastic, and the sets are remarkable. But the action is intense, and it has great battle scenes that are very intense. I really enjoyed this second Thor film and I’m glad I got my lazy butt out to the theater to see this one on the big screen. The acting is good, and it was really a suspenseful roller-coaster ride all the way thorough. Obviously the action is intense in the last half, but the first half gives us so much background on what is happening without giving us all the secrets that it’s very intense and interesting to try to figure out what’s going on with the strange things that are happening. As many of you know, I’m typically not a big fan of comic book/superhero type movies, but this series really impressed me. I enjoyed it very much, and highly recommend it for action/adventure fans all over.
