Thor 2 - The Dark World - Some Thoughts

I watched Thor 2 - The Dark World and thought the movie was a good sequel and was even better than the first movie.

But there were some things that bothered me in the movie.

SPOILER ALERT!!! Do not read beyond this point if you haven't watched the movie and don't want to know the plot in the movie.

In Avengers, all the superheroes (Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawk Eye) and S.H.I.E.L.D came together because our Earth was in danger of destruction by Loki and his outsourced army. But in Thor 2, the entire universe is in danger and all the superheroes decided to take a leave. Even though Dr.Erik Selvig (the guy who was hypnotized by Loki and created the portal for him atop the Stark towers in Avengers) predicts that something bad is going to happen, S.H.I.E.L.D is nowhere to be seen. Not even to take Dr.Eric Selvig out on bail and doesn't even take a call from Jane Foster's friend (seriously there is a scene in the movie). Wonder why they were so busy...

Because of Jane Foster, there is a lot of damage happening for Thor personally and in his world. But Jane Foster doesn't seem to feel bad enough about it.

Even with these things bothering me and the movie being predictable for me, the movie itself is very good.

The Dark Elves were magical and proved to be good match for Thor and his hammer. But the main villain didn't seem to be powerful enough.

Tom Hiddleston as Loki is brilliant as always. The Hammer Mjolnir going from realm to realm to reach Thor's hands is a brilliant scene and I totally enjoyed it.

P.S. Do not miss the after credits scene.
