Consensus: It may not be the finest film to come from the Marvel Universe, but Thor: The Dark World still offers plenty of the humor and high-stakes action that fans have come to expect.

Thor: The Dark World is a good model of how superheroes can save the world without forced gravitas, and have fun doing it.

Overall, Thor: The Dark World is an entertaining, if inconsequential, action-fantasy with another great turn by Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

Enough with the appetite-whetting experiments. Just wake me when The Avengers: Age of Ultron is here.

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.

This feels like a really, really, expensive episode of Doctor Who. In a good way.

A wildly uneven but entertaining sequel to one of Marvel Comics' most enduring franchises.

Like so many comic book epics these days, Alan Taylor's 3-D Thor: The Dark World is both monumental and generic.

When Thor: The Dark World doesn't work-and it doesn't, far too frequently-it's when the writers and director take the whole thing much too seriously.

For my money Thor is the best of the Marvel line up, the only question is will they do right by him? In this one they come close. There's action, humor,… More

It makes 0 sense. Logic has left the building. But, Thor: The Dark World is mindlessly entertaining. I had a ridiculous amount of fun. Also, Hiddleston's… More

Exciting and fun -- although the "aether" at the center of the plot is almost undecipherable, forced and improbable. Heck, the whole film is… More
