This is one of those movies that could've been great, but falls victim to formulaic Hollywood thinking.
Drop the unneeded quasi-romance and Natalie Portman, and you'd have a better movie.
I'm also not sure about the casting choice for Thor. I get it, and I get why a lot of people are probably ga-ga about the choice, but Thor would be better off if he came across as more intelligent (and higher emotional IQ). Thor is supposed to be incredibly strong but not a derpy brute.
Maybe I'm being too harsh. The fact of the matter is that the way the movie was done, you find yourself rooting way more for Loki, who is absolutely terrific.
Have a spin-off with just Loki, and it'd prob be a ten.
