Storyline

Thousands of years ago, a race of beings known as Dark Elves tried to send the universe into darkness by using a weapon known as the Aether. 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. Jane discovers an anomaly similar to the one that brought Thor to Earth. She goes to investigate, finds a wormhole, and is sucked into it. 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 ...

Trivia

One action scene involved one hundred forty marauders, an assortment of weapons, some from the aliens in The Avengers (2012), a mix of roman, medieval, and nearly every Earth culture. The idea is that the gang of space pirates would have taken possession of an assortment of many types of weapons from their adventures. They use axes, swords, spears, morning stars, whips, and guns.

Goofs

The Eurofighter pilot reports 'Missile away', having fired on the dark ship 'moored' on Greenwich embankment, but he pronounces the word in American style: "missal"-he's a British RAF pilot, and would therefore pronounce it as written: "missile". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Odin: [narrating] Long before the birth of light, there was darkness... and from that darkness came the Dark Elves. Millennia ago, the most ruthless of their kind, Malekith, sought to transform our universe back into one of eternal night. Such evil was possible through the power of the Aether, an ancient force of infinite destruction. The noble armies of Asgard, led by my father King Bor, waged a mighty war against these creatures. As the Nine Worlds converged above him, Malekith could at...

God Of Thunder Strikes Out
9 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was expecting to be impressed with this movie. Instead, along comes this endless battle royal that goes on and on and on with sword fights and battle scenes. Not to mention the all too typical these days - cars getting tossed around like swatted flies scenes that made me wonder if this was supposed to be a Transformers remake or a Tolkien version of a Rambo movie or something. I was expecting a SUPER-HERO movie, not a war movie. At the start the movie seems promising but as it goes on it becomes painfully obvious that little was invested towards writing an interesting plot line and script for this stinker. Evil elves versus Azgardians? Give me a break! Maybe if they make a third movie they can pit Thor against an evil villain here on Earth and the earthlings can be more than minor window dressing in the plot line. Give me the comic books over this movie any time.
