John Pollock & Wai Ting review the eighth Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Thor: The Dark World (2013).
Davie Portman from upNXT joins us to discuss what many consider to be the weakest MCU release to date. Does it deserve the criticism? We discuss its strengths and weaknesses including the performances of Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins, the problems many found with lead villain Malekith, its inaccurate portrayal of the London subway system, and more.
Synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes:
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
