THOR, THE DARK WORLD
When it comes to Marvel movies THOR 2 can comfortably stand among the ranks of the three IRON MAN films (the cream of the crop in this fan's opinion) and definitely of higher quality than CAPTAIN AMERICA or the HULK and X-MEN films.
However it doesn't quite touch THE AVENGERS.
Dark Elves, giants, epic spaceship battles and combat are stuffed into THOR 2 from the opening credits to the end of the film (which, if you know anything about Marvel movies you will stay to the very, VERY end).
No one is better suited to carry Mjollner than Chris Hemsworth. He has really taken to playing the God of Thunder and has a lot of great scenes in the movie, from light hearted bantering with his mischievous brother Loki, to chest beating threats towards Malkith, THOR 2's primary antagonist.
Speaking of Loki, Tom Hiddleston rules. Just saying.
Can't wait for CAPTAIN AMERICA, THE WINTER SOLDIER and AVENGERS 2, AGE OF ULTRON.
