Warriors from Asgard stop them but their leader Malekith escapes to wait for another opportunity. The warriors find the Aether and since it cannot be destroyed, they try to hide it. In the present day, Jane Foster awaits the return of Thor although it has been two years since they last saw once another. In the meantime, Thor has been trying to bring peace to the nine realms.

Back on Asgard, Thor wishes to return to Earth but his father, Odin refuses to let him. Thor learns from Heimdall, who can see into all of the realms, that Jane disappeared. Thor then returns to Earth just as Jane reappears. However, when some policemen try to arrest her, an unknown energy repulses them. Thor then brings Jane to Asgard to ...

No No No! How can this be a 7.6
5 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

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.
