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 ...Written by
(At around seventeen minutes) It's evident that the English children have done more than tumble a cement truck, or make shoes and car keys vanish. When Jane (Natalie Portman), Darcy (Kat Dennings), and Ian (Jonathan Howard) first arrive, they pass through a "container-henge", stacked up by the youngsters using their gravitational anomaly, in the same way that Stonehenge was built during the previous Convergence.

(at around 1h 30 mins) Thor is shown boarding the London Underground at Charing Cross station, asking a commuter how to get to Greenwich. She says he can "take this train three stops," but that's not possible. Two lines pass through Charring Cross. One is the Bakerloo Line, where three stops one way would arrive at Regent's Park, and three stops the other way is Lambeth North, and the Northern Line, where three stops one way is Goodge Street, and three stops the other way is Kennington, none of which are near Greenwich. The nearest stations to Greenwich are either Greenwich or Cutty Sark on the Docklands Light Rail. To get there from Charing Cross, Thor would have to go one stop south on either line to Embankment, then take the Circle or District line five stops east to Monument, then change for the DLR Lewisham Branch and take that to Greenwich.

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...

Infinitely better than the first (which I liked) because of better action, humor and emotion. All those people who were worried about Thor being underpowered are going to be pleased. The effects are wonderful and it is indeed a very funny and a very moving movie in places. I'm happy to report that neither factor is overused or gets in the way of the feel or story. It's the right amount of humor and right amount of angst. Cinematography is great and the score is amazing. Whoever scored this film should do so for the rest of the Marvel movies in my opinion.
I knew they would nail the pathos but was pleasantly surprised by the creative fight sequences. They are phenomenal. Not overly long but when they rage, THEY RAGE. Also, Kurse can rival the Hulk in terms of scary power. He was better utilized than the Destroyer was in the first film. Loki is the scene stealer that was all hoped to see! Jane and Sif add more than eye candy but you would expect no less from Marvel. Hemsworth has cemented his legend as Thor with this effort. My only real disappointed is a minor one. They didn't really show the nine realms in any real detail. It seemed a cop out that hey're just open landscapes. Yet, maybe they didn't want to commit to anything for future movies.
Overall, this is a wonderful movie and maybe Marvel's best solo film.
