Disney have produced some fantastic marvel films throughout there takeover. Ironman 1 and 3, Thor, and the avengers were awesome. They don't try to be the dark brooding DC films, they cant be, they're of a larger scope, more comprehensive in appeal. They're packed with humour, action, and riveting twists, and as a whole capture the characters spot on ie Downey jnr. This however, does not. This film is saturated beyond humour with joke after joke after joke. Thor has his lighter tales, but malekeith is a darker adversary, brooding and malicious. Thus the plot should reflect this. Yet this film kept joking and joking, so much, I didn't care about Malekeith, he didn't seem that menacing at all. He butchers millions...yet the humour detracted from that beyond belief. The twist in plot from Loki is its saving grace, as is Hiddlestone's acting, hopefully Thor 3 can recapture that which was Thor.
