| Thor: The Dark World|
DIRECTED BY: Alan Taylor
STARRING:Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston
THE PLOT: Following the events in Avengers Assemble and Loki’s imprisonment, Thor is once again faced with a grave new evil in the form of the Aether. This is an energy force that brings Thor’s love Jane Foster into Asgard, as well as the Dark Elves who aim to conquer the universe.
WORTH WATCHING? As we saw with Iron Man 3, Marvel has done a great job at making the Avengers stand on their own. In the latest of these blockbusters, the god of Thunder brings humour to the franchise. Director Alan Taylor has taken a darker look at this addition to the superhero catalogue. Thor, albeit powerful, does show vulnerability, thus making this film feel less like a superhero movie, and more like a sci-fi/action blockbuster.
VERDICT: It is gripping, charismatic and thoroughly enjoyable!
