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.

Near the start of the film a shot of the London skyline shows the new 'walkie talkie' skyscraper as nearly complete. During the final battle a few shots show it several months earlier, with the building at a much earlier stage in the build.

Well I was so looking forward to seeing this movie when I went last night, and although it was reasonably good it was not at all what I expected.
Watch the official movie trailer and you see what looks like quite a dark fantasy, so you can imagine my surprise when throughout the movie the audience was laughing out loud at the stupid one liners. Yes I know this is entertainment, and this movie was moderately entertaining, but once again the makers have tried to please everyone by adding a bit of everything; action, special effects, romance and humour, just far too much of the latter for my taste in a genre that does not require hilarity to succeed.
Although it has a lower IMDb score I much preferred the 2011 Thor, a stronger storyline, darker and no laughing matter!
