Fresh: A wildly uneven but entertaining sequel to one of Marvel Comics' most enduring franchises.
- Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Monday, November 25, 2013
Fresh: Though hardly a must-see, Thor: The Dark World is better than the original: a looser, loopier hybrid of science fiction and fantasy powered by a pair of magnetic performances and leavened with a number of truly witty moments.
- Christopher Orr, The Atlantic, Friday, November 8, 2013
Fresh: The latest chapter in Marvel's never-ending story takes a while to find its narrative momentum, but its later, better scenes have a loony oomph that drowns out your misgivings.
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday, November 7, 2013
Exciting and fun -- although the "aether" at the center of the plot is almost undecipherable, forced and improbable. Heck, the whole film is improbable -- but it's really nice to look at. Sadly, this is not one of Anthony Hopkins finest films -- that is, unless hamminess passes as Shakespearean in Asgard.
