I can't imagine that a fan of the character Thor would be disappointed with this film. It builds on all the elements that Kenneth Branagh established in the first film and ups the ante across the board. Everything is bigger: the battles, the cast, the sets, the visual effects, the soundtrack, the entire scope. The costumes are amazing. I wish they looked this good the first time around. And Asgard is incredible. Alan Taylor has brought the eternal realm to life in a way that Branagh did not. It is still majestic but it feels much more real and actually "lived in".
Further, the actors from the first movie have really grown into their roles. Hemsworth and Hiddleston in particular are the very embodiment of their characters. Hiddleston has much more material to work with from an actor's perspective with regards to Loki - a tormented and duplicitous soul - but he's so good at it. Whereas Hemsworth plays the cocksure Thor in a much more understated fashion. Thor is not complex but has a big heart. Bringing him to life requires subtlety and Hemsworth nails it. Neither actor oversells their role. Not only that, they have tremendous chemistry with each other and every scene in which they are together steals the show.Read more ›
Well, not ALL of it works. The scientific mumbo-jumbo (courtesy of Portman and Skarsgard) is, quite frankly, embarrassing, and while Christopher Eccleston's Malekith may look like the badass lovechild of Nosferatu and Legolas, he's far from a compelling villain. This is not to mention a certain Deux ex Machina that rather staggers disbelief.
But enough of cons! Thor 2, headed by the gritty sensibilities of Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), takes the world built by Kenneth Branagh, and ups the stakes, the chemistry, and the characters to new heights! It takes place in a fully realized and visually stunning world (look out for Iceland doubling as the realm of the dark elves), but never loses it's fantastic touch. Chris Hemsworth is (quite literally, erm) solid as Thor, but it is his supporting cast are the true scene stealers. Tom Hiddleston's devilishly good Loki is a highlight; scheming, tricking, and lying his way through the movie, all with a glint in his green eyes and an air of sarcasm. Thor 2 would not be half of what it is without Hiddleston.Read more ›

Yeah, I don't want a 3D bluray. Just give me a Bluray/DVD pack. I'd even be ok with a Bluray disc by itself, as long as they include all the special features.

|Well, wont be buying this until in bargain bin.||
From what I understand, 3D home entertainment has been a major money loser, and during the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, several companies, including Panasonic, announced that they would no longer be manufacturing 3D TV's and 3D Blu-ray players. Those of us who already have... Read More

|extras on 3D bluray or normal bluray?||
I've never had any 3D movie that had special features that were not on the normal Blu-ray disk. Actually a lot of times the 3D disk only has the movie and the special features are all on the Blu-ray disk.

I agree with Nathaniel that this was almost assuredly a decision made by Disney since they did the same thing with Oz: The Great and Powerful. I think their reasoning at the time was that consumers didn't like the excess waste that the all-in-one combo packs presented. I, on the other hand, love... Read More
