The story really falls on its face if you give any thought to it and the main villain is incredibly generic. He has no point to him other than being an evil person for Thor to fight. The dynamic between Loki and Thor is the best part of these films and the first movie rode on that relationship well. Loki was a much better villain and when he is on screen the film is better for it. Tom Hiddleston steals all the scenes he is in. Chris Hemsworth is still a fun and likable Thor, but we need more at this point after The Avengers. These last few individual stories in the universe are hard to watch after seeing them all together. The special effects and designs in the film are fantastic and there's some nice action, but nothing that blows other films away. It's a fairly entertaining film, but I expected more.

Most of it is underage teenagers drinking lots of booze, smoking weed, taking pills, and having sex with one another until someone gets killed. I know this formula all too well. It can be a guilty pleasure at times if done well, but here it is not even remotely done well. The acting is awful, the dialog is laughable at times, and every character central to the plot lacks any motivation at all. Some people have called this a thinker's slasher. I have no idea how they thought that. The movie does look good though. It has a great vintage horror movie look to it. Amber Heard is clearly the central piece and males will fawn over her, but it isn't nearly enough to sit through this. After 30 minutes I wanted it to end. Jonathon Levine has directed some good movies, but I don't know what he was thinking here.
