Thor: the Dark World Spoiler-free Review
Is it good?
Yes, it earns its insane faces-and-action mishmash poster.
Is it technically good?
The special effects are top-notch, the cinematography clean and pretty.
The actors from the first Thor movie return in good form to treat comic book material like Shakespeare, but too much makeup and voice manipulation hide any acting that Christopher Eccleston does as the big bad.
Like most modern Marvel films, the music and sound is spot-on.
The director Alan Taylor, a vet of some Game of Thrones episodes and other TV, does good work here - but there are a couple of awkward editing choices.
What does it promise - and does it deliver?
More Thor - it does deliver, and unlike Iron Man 2, Thor doesn't struggle post-origin story.
