Review: Thor: The Dark World (2013)

The lustre of Asgardian high adventure diminishes a little in this follow-up to 2011’s Thor (and last year’s Avengers Assemble too). Alan Taylor’s serviceable sequel delivers the epic action required from the latest entry in Marvel’s ambitious cinematic masterplan, but the story is awash with far too much pseudo-scientific blather and a vague sense of that-will-do plot laziness, which leaves little to savour beyond the visual spectacle. What worked in the first film still works now, which makes for an entertaining two hours for Marvel fans, but it’s a step down from Iron Man 3, never mind Joss Whedon’s breathtaking superhero team-up.
