THOR 2 – The Dark World [Review]
Yesterday, it was the Lebanon press screening of the upcoming Marvel Movie “Thor – The Dark World” and thanks to Italia Movies, we were there. And boy it was a surprise (We promise no spoilers).
As with Iron Man 3, the movie starts were “The Avengers” ends. Thor back to Azgard with Loki in custody.
Years ago before the whole big bang thing, THOR’s grandfather “Bor” vanquished the Dark Elves led by Malekith, who sought to return the universe to its state before creation, using a force called the Aether. But it turns Bor out didn’t exactly destroy the Aether. The movie takes it from there by a once every 5000 years event where all the 9 realms perfectly align and the border between them becomes vague.
I won’t tell you more about the story except that Frida , THOR’s mother, is killed by Malekith during an attack on Azgard. THOR seeks revenge and asks Loki for help.
The main movie stage is not earth this time. Instead it’s a mix of the 9 realms, with a big focus on Azgard. The earth battle takes place in London. The cast did a good job, as we see some new faces to fill up the Azgard army and guards. Anthony Hopkins nails it as the god of everything. And at the end we see his “fatherly” side with Thor.
It’s a tough crowd but Marvel did it again! It was hard to do anything after the almost perfect “Avengers”, but they did it with “Iron Man 3”, and they are doing it again with “THOR 2 – The Dark World”. You’ll see battles, emotions, amazing scenery up to every details of each of the 9 realms. You’ll laugh, cry, and certainly get surprised !! (NO we’re not letting any spoilers out ! ), more than one time !
THOR – The Dark World is a movie not to be missed. Even if you’re not a fan, you’ll appreciate all the work done to get a high quality result. A movie where you can’t take your eyes off or you will miss something interesting.
Just make sure to watch it in 3D, surround and all that stuff. And yes i’ll be watching it again in theaters.
AND DO NOT LEAVE YOUR SEAT BEFORE THE SCREEN TURNS OFF !
Oh and Captain America pays the movie a visit…
Sorry, we promised no spoilers, but we can…. we love you.
THOR – The Dark World opens November 7th across Lebanon, November 8th in across the US.
