Thor

Went to see Thor 2 today and enjoyed it a lot. The story line was interesting though a bit complicated. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston had good chemistry. The underlying story about the conflict between Thor and Loki was well done. There is a lot of baggage there, but the brothers help each other and stick together through thick and thin. The rest of the cast did a wonderful job, but the relationship between Thor and Loki is a central part of the movie.

And of course there is the threat to Asgard and Earth that must be dealt with. Thor has matured and is behaving more the way a future king would behave and is determined to save Asgard (and everyone else) from the bad guy, Malekith. Loki is still up to his trickery. There is quite a bit of humor in spite of the dark theme.

I also liked the interaction between Thor and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), the woman who was waiting for Thor to come back to her.

The Asgard set was appropriately mysterious, dark, beautiful and majestic.

There was plenty of action, both on Asgard and on Earth. Thor and Malekith have one heck of a fight, bouncing from realm to realm. They left things open for another movie very nicely. I’m looking forward to the next installment.

I liked the first movie a lot too by the way. I got the images from Wikipedia.
