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 stopped them, but their leader Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) escaped 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 (Natalie Portman) awaits the return of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), 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.

Goofs

(at around 1h 22 mins) When Jane Foster laments about how she wishes she never found the Aether, Thor claims that Malekith would have found it sooner. This is incorrect because Malekith, along with all the Dark Elves, are clearly seen being reawakened from cryo-stasis after Jane first interacts with the Aether (at around 22 mins). 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...

Good movie
17 May 2018 | by djfrost-46786See all my reviews

It's a good movie. Like that Natalie Portman was still in it. Too bad she wasn't in Thor Ragnarok. The bad was they tried to go funny at parts. It wasn't very funny.
