Thor: The Dark World (2013)

Directed by: Alan Taylor

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Setallan Skarsgard.

The film begins with Odin’s father fighting the Dark Elf and defeating him and preventing them from getting a weapon that could really affect the nine realms. Unknown to the Asgardians he manages to escape with few of his army. In the present Thor is seen with his army bringing peace to the realms. Meanwhile, on earth, Jane Foster is in London investigating a rare thing happening on an abandoned building when she is suddenly taken into another world where she is infected with the weapon the Dark Elf is looking for. Thor is warned by Heimdall that Jane has gone out of his range and Thor goes back to earth and finds her. When the effects of the weapon she was affected with are shown Thor takes her to Asgard. Odin does not approve and realizing the danger he just imprisons her. The Dark Elf invades Asgard and kills Thor mother but has to flee without Foster. Thor then against Odin’s order, goes to find him. Thor goes to his brother Loki for help and he agrees to help him. When they confront him, the weapon was taken from Foster’s body but Thor was not able to destroy it and the Dark Elf was able to get it. in the process, Loki was killed trying to protect Thor. In earth with the help of Foster and her friends Thor is able to destroy the weapon and the Dark Elf. By the end, we see that Loki was again deceived his brother and was posing as Odin. Thor says he did not want the crown leaving Loki to rule Asgard pretending to be Odin.

The sequel for me was far better than the first movie. The story was more interesting and there are more scenes outside of earth. The best thing about the film once again was Loki, I just love that character. And Hemsworth and Hiddleston have great chemistry and work well in the scenes they are together. The scene where Loki is changing forms to mock Thor and includes Captain America was really funny.
