Millennia ago, a villain named Malekith and his Dark Elves battled to bring the universe back into darkness (like it was before it was created), but were defeated by Odin(Anthony Hopkins)’s father, Bor, and his army. In the present days, Malekith has now been reawaken by a weapon called the Aether (which Malekith once possessed), which has now possessed Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Thor(Chris Hemsworth)’s love interest in the first Thor movie. Thor soon realizes that Jane has been possessed and brings her to Asgard. Thor must now team up with his adoptive brother Loki (Tom Hiddleson), who was the antagonist in The Avengers, and defeat Malekith, get the Aether out of Jane, and save all Nine Realms!
I saw this movie on Friday and I really enjoyed it! The visual effects and the action scenes are awesome! Like many other Marvel movies, the film is filled with humor, but I think this one had the most! For example, there is one scene where Jane’s scientist friend, Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) has gone crazy and is running around the Stonehenge naked (private parts are blurred) on TV! There is also one scene when Loki, who apparently can shape-shift, starts shape-shifting into many people, and one of the people he shape-shifts into is actually Captain America (just for laughs, but only for, like, 10 seconds)! The villain in this movie turned out to be nothing close to interesting, but I still enjoyed this movie. I think this movie is definitely worth paying for! But if you do watch it, then I think it’s best to watch it in 3-D, because it is pretty awesome in 3-D. So, in conclusion, I think this is the best Marvel movie since The Avengers! I would recommend this movie for kids 11 and up because there is a lot of action.
