OUR REVIEW & RATING ★★★☆☆
Thor: The Dark World quotes are an enjoyable blend of comedy, action, fantasy and sci-fi. The sequel follows Thor as he tries to find a way to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious ancient race of Dark Elves led by Malekith, hell bent on plunging the universe into darkness using Aether, an all-powerful energy. Narratively this is a darker story than the first movie and set at a much bigger scale which at times made it feel more like a sci-fi movie.
The story starts with a colorful mythology to establish the background which suffers slightly as even though the movie is fast paced the first half feels slow and at times a bit incomprehensible. What saves the movie is the fact that it never takes itself seriously with some brilliant comic relief, but it has to be pointed out that sometimes the casual humor jars when the tone of the story shifts to dramatic and emotional.
Although there is nothing original offered here, this in fact isn’t a hindrance as the familiarity actually helps the story and keeps the audience connected. As for the characters, Hemsworth continues to prove his talent playing the formidable Thor giving him adequate depth, and Hiddleston once again stands out as the mischievous Loki delivering some great sharp one-liners. However, Eccleston’s villain, Malekith sadly comes across as bland and generic, this isn’t Eccleston’s fault but more to do with the material he was given to work with.
Verdict: Even though there are gaping plot holes and silly logics, this is a decent follow up to Thor, with great performances, snappy and witty dialogue alongside thrilling action sequences making it a successful transition for Marvel’s ‘Phase 2’.
Odin: [voice over] Long before the birth of light there was darkness, and from that darkness came the Dark Elves. Millennia ago the most ruthless of their kind, Malekith, sought to transform our universe back into one of eternal night. Such evil was blossomed through the power of the Aether, an ancient force of infinite destruction.
[Malekith approaches his lieutenant, Algrim, who tells him Asgard have sent their army]
Algrim: [subtitled] Malekith, the Asgardians attack.
Odin: [voice over] The noble of armies of Asgard, led by my father, King Bor, waged a mighty war against these wretches.
[as Bor and his army are fighting the Dark Elves, Malekith takes a bit of the Aether to give him power]
Odin: [voice over] As the nine worlds converged above him Malekith could at last unleash the Aether.
[before Malekith can unleash the Aether, three Asgardian soldiers break through and stop him]
Odin: [voice over] But Asgard had ripped the weapon from his grasp. Without it the Dark Elves fell.
[suddenly as the Dark Elves are fighting with the Asgardian soldiers, one by one they fall to their deaths]
Odin: [voice over] With the battle all but lost Malekith sacrificed his own people in desperate attempt to lay waste to Asgard’s army.
Malekith: [subtitled] Through their sacrifice we will survive. It will not be in vain.
[a spaceship comes down in which Malekith and Algrim then escape]
Odin: [voice over] Malekith was ambushed and the Aether was no more. Also we were led to believe…
[after winning the battle with the Dark Elves, Bor stands watching over the bodies when one of his soldiers approaches him]
Asgardian Einherjar: Sire, the Aether, shall we destroy it?
Bor: If only we could, but its power is too great. Bury it deep. Somewhere no one will ever find it.
[the Aether is buried within a giant stone column and sent somewhere where it can’t be found]
[in present day Asgard, Loki, in shackles, is brought to Odin and Frigga]
Loki: Hello, mother. Have I made you proud.
Frigga: Please, don’t make this worse.
Loki: Define worse.
Odin: Enough! I will speak to the prisoner alone.
[Frigga turns and leaves]
[as Loki is brought closer to Odin’s throne he starts laughing]
Loki: I really don’t see what all the fuss is about.
Odin: Do you not truly feel the gravity of your crimes? Wherever you go there is war, ruin and death.
Loki: I wanted to rule the people of Earth as a benevolent God, just like you.
Odin: We are not Gods. We are born, we live, we die, just as humans do.
Loki: Give or take five thousand years.
Odin: All this because Loki desires a throne.
Loki: It’s my birthright!
Odin: Your birthright was to die…as a child! Cast out onto a frozen rock. If I had not taken you in you would not be here now to hate me.
Loki: If I had fully asked for true mercy, I’d say just swing it. It’s not that I don’t love our little talks, it’s just…I don’t love them.
Odin: Frigga is the only reason you are still alive and you will never see her again. You will spend the rest of your days in the dungeon.
[he is moved back with his shackles]
Loki: And what of Thor? You’ll make that witless oaf king while I rot in chains?
Odin: Thor must strive to undo the damage you have done, he will bring order to the Nine Realms and then, yes, he will be king.
[on Vanaheim, Sif, Fandral, Volstagg and Hogun are battling an army of invaders when Thor makes his entrance and with one swing of his hammer, Mjolnir, bring down some of the invaders]
Sif: I’ve got this completely under control!
Thor: Is that why everything’s on fire!
[they all continue to battle it out further with the invaders when Sif manages to use her shield to stop the spear thrown to kill Thor; Thor turns to look at Sif]
Sif: You’re welcome.
[in the midst of the battle suddenly a giant stone creature stomps toward them, it knocks one warrior out of his way; to Thor]
Sif: All yours.
[as the giant creature reaches Thor he stops and roars, Thor takes a step closer to it]
[the creature leans down and roars again]
Thor: I accept your surrender.
[the invaders laugh, Thor starts swinging his hammer and throws it at the creature, destroying it in one blow]
Thor: Anyone else?
[the invaders start throwing their weapons down and kneel down to Thor]
Fandral: Perhaps next time we should start with the big one.
[after the invaders have surrendered]
Hogun: Where do we go next?
Thor: Hogun, the future is nearly won when we cross the Nine Realms. You should stay here and be with your people where your heart is, Asgard can wait.
Hogun: You have my thanks.
[they holds each other’s arms]
Thor: As you have mine.
[Hogun turns and walks off, Thor looks up]
Thor: Heimdall, when you’re ready.
[Heimdall uses the Bifrost, the ‘Rainbow Bridge’, to bring Thor back to Asgard]
[Thor walks up to Odin as he is watching Asgardian soldiers train]
Odin: Is Vanaheim secure?
Thor: As are Nornheim and Ria, though our work would have gone more quickly with you in form.
Odin: You must think I’m a piece of bread that needs to be buttered so heavily.
Thor: That was not my intent.
Odin: The first time since Bifrost was destroyed, the Nine Realms are in peace. We’re well reminded of our strength and you have earned their respect and my gratitude.
Thor: Thank you.
Odin: Nothing out of order except you’re confused and distracted heart.
Thor: This isn’t about Jane Foster, father.
Odin: Human lives are fleeting, they’re nothing. You’d be better served by what lies in front of you.
[he indicates to Sif who is training with the other soldiers]
Odin: I’m telling you this not as the All-Father, but as your father. You are ready, the time has come for you to take the throne. Embrace it, celebrate what you have won. Join your warriors, eat and drink, revel in their celebration. At least pretend to enjoy yourself.
[later that evening Thor joins the other warriors as they celebrate, as he watches the others enjoying themselves it’s obvious his heart is not in it, he walks over to the balcony to join Sif]
Sif: There was a time you would celebrate for weeks.
Thor: I remember you celebrated the battle of Haragon so much that you nearly started a second.
Sif: Well, the first was so much fun.
[they both smile]
Sif: Take a drink with me. Surely the All-Father could have no further task for you tonight.
Thor: No, this is one I set myself.
Sif: It has not gone unnoticed that you disappear each night. There are Nine Realms. Future king of Asgard must focus on more than one.
Thor: I thank you for your sword and for your counsel, good Lady Sif.
[he turns and walks off]
[in London Jane is on a date with a man named Richard, Jane is looking at her menu feeling awkward when Richard slides a napkin in front of her with the word ‘Hi’ written on it]
Jane Foster: Hi.
Richard: So what’s the story with you?
Jane Foster: Why does there have to be a story, there’s no story.
Richard: You’ve spent the first ten minutes of our date hiding behind a menu that has three choices on it. It’s either chicken, vegetarian or fish, Jane. I think there’s a story and I’m thinking the story involves a guy?
Jane Foster: It’s complicated.
Richard: Is he still around?
Jane Foster: No, he…went away.
Richard: I’ve been there. The going away, it’s hard. I’d been seeing a woman and uh…she took a job in New York, eventually the distance killed it. And…and the fact that she uh…she kept sleeping with other dudes.
Jane Foster: No!
Richard: Oh, so many.
[Darcy walks up to Jane and Richard’s table]
Richard: Hi. Um…could we get some wine please?
Darcy Lewis: Sure, I’d love some.
Jane Foster: Richard, this is Darcy.
Jane Foster: What are you doing here?
[Darcy grabs a chair from the opposite table and drags it across to their table]
Richard: Oh, hello.
[Darcy sits next to Jane and helps herself to a piece of bread and starts buttering it]
Darcy Lewis: So, I show up to work at the lab-slash-your mom’s house, fully expecting you to be moping around in your pajamas eating ice cream obsessing about you know who…
Darcy Lewis: But you’re not! You’re wearing lady clothes, you even showered, didn’t you? You smell good.
Jane Foster: Is there a point to all this, cause there really has to be a point to all this.
Darcy Lewis: Right. You know that scientific equipment you don’t look at anymore? You might wanna start looking at it now
[she gives Jane the gadget]
Darcy Lewis: This is the reason we came all the way out here.
Jane Foster: It’s malfunctioning.
Darcy Lewis: That’s what I said.
[Jane starts hitting the gadget on the table]
Darcy Lewis: That’s what I did! But you just hit a little more scientific.
Jane Foster: I’m sure it’s nothing.
[Jane hands the gadget back to Darcy]
Darcy Lewis: It didn’t look like nothing. Kind of looks like the readings that Erik was rambling about.
Darcy Lewis: Our friend Erik, kind of went banana-balls.
Jane Foster: He’s not interested. I’m not interested. Time for you to go now.
Darcy Lewis: Okay.
[Jane rises and drags her chair back to where she got it from, then turns and walks off]
Richard: Short but sweet.
Jane Foster: She needs help.
[they start looking at their menus again, but Jane looks distracted by what Darcy told her]
Richard: I think I’m gonna have the sea bass.
Jane Foster: Sea bass. Yeah, sea bass is good.
[to herself as she thinks about what Darcy showed her]
Jane Foster: Sea bass, sea bass, sea bass, sea bass, sea bass, sea bass, sea bass…sea bass. Sea bass…
Richard: Jane, maybe you should stop saying sea bass and go out to your friend.
[Jane looks at him awkwardly]
Jane Foster: This was so fun.
Richard: You know, I’ll just stay here and say sea bass alone.
[Jane enters Darcy’s car parked outside the restaurant]
Jane Foster: And I hate you.
Darcy Lewis: What?! I thought he was cute.
Jane Foster: Just shut up and drive.
[Darcy pulls out and drive off, as they are driving through London suddenly Jane’s is shocked to see a guy sat in the back seat]
Jane Foster: Who’s he?
Darcy Lewis: He’s my intern.
Jane Foster: You have an intern?
Darcy Lewis: Oh, yeah.
Ian Boothby: Hello, Dr. Foster. It’s uh…it’s a great honor to be working with you.
Jane Foster: Right. I have to call Erik.
[to Darcy as he checks the navigator]
Ian Boothby: Oh, uh…take a right.
[Darcy quickly makes a sharp turn]
Ian Boothby: Left!
[she then turns quickly left]
Darcy Lewis: I have totally mastered driving in London.
[Jane calls Erik and leaves a message]
Jane Foster: Hi, Erik, it’s me again. Where are you? I came here because you said you were onto something and then vanished.
[a news report is then shown where Selvig is naked and running around Stonehenge while the police try to catch him]
Stonehenge TV News Reporter: I’m here at Stonehenge, for what has been an interesting unfolding of events today. The police reported the scene shortly after 11 a.m. this morning, after a seemingly harmless rambler approached the area then started to strip naked and effectively terrorize tourists there with scientific equipment while shouting that he was trying to save them. The man later identified as noted Astrophysicist Dr. Erik Selvig has been called in for questioning by police.
[Darcy pulls up outside an old abandoned factory and they all get out of the car]
Darcy Lewis: Come on, this is exciting! Look, the intern is excited.
Ian Boothby: Ian.
Darcy Lewis: Do you want the phase meter?
Jane Foster: No.
Darcy Lewis: Bring the phase meter.
[she throws the car keys at Ian and starts walking off]
Darcy Lewis: The toaster looking thing.
Ian Boothby: I know what the phase meter is.
[as Jane walks towards the factory Darcy calls her on her cell phone which starts playing an annoying music tone]
Jane Foster: How do I change the ring tone on this thing?
Darcy Lewis: An Astrophysicist with three degrees should be able to change her own ring tone.
[Jane turns to look at Darcy]
Jane Foster: Why are you calling me?
Darcy Lewis: I didn’t want to shout.
[to Ian, who’s following behind her]
Darcy Lewis: Intern, the entrance is this way.
Ian Boothby: Ian. My name’s Ian.
[as they enter the old factory they hear a noise]
Darcy Lewis: I am not getting stabbed in the name of science.
[she holds up her hands and shouts]
Darcy Lewis: It’s okay, we’re Americans!
Jane Foster: Is that supposed to make them like us?
[suddenly the hear some kids voices]
Maddie: Make it go away…
[three kids come out of their hiding place]
Jane Foster: Oh, they’re kids.
Maddie: Are you the police?
Jane Foster: No, we’re scientists. Well, I am.
Darcy Lewis: Thanks.
Navid: We just found it.
Jane Foster: Can you show us?
[the three kids lead Jane, Darcy and Ian to a truck, one of the boys touches the truck and pushes it up with two fingers, they watch in amazement as the truck floats in mid-air]
Darcy Lewis: That doesn’t seem rigged.
[the kids then take them to a stairwell in the factory, one of them drops a bottle down and they watch as the bottle disappears into thin air]
Jane Foster: Where did it go?
[the girl points her finger up, they look up to see the bottle reappear above them and continuously fall and disappear in the same spots in the air]
Jane Foster: That’s…that’s incredible.
[Jane picks up an empty can and drops it down and it does the same thing, it disappears into thin air, but when they look up to watch it reappear nothing happens]
Jane Foster: What happened?
Maddie: Sometimes they come back, sometimes they don’t.
Darcy Lewis: I want to throw something. Jane, give me your shoe.
[Jane picks up her gadget to look at the readings]
Jane Foster: I haven’t seen readings like this since…
Darcy Lewis: New Mexico?
[Jane give Darcy a meaningful look before rushing off]
Jane Foster: Don’t touch anything!
Darcy Lewis: Give me your shoe.
[Jane walks away from the others and watches them on the stairwell dropping objects down and watching them disappear and reappear, she sees looks at her gadget and sees the anomaly is nearby and starts walking off; back on the stairwell, Ian drops the car keys down and they watch it disappear but when they look up it doesn’t reappear]
Darcy Lewis: Where those the car keys?
[Jane follows the readings on her gadget which takes her to another part of the factory, as the readings get stronger a gust of wind pushes her forward and she finds herself teleported in another realm]
Jane Foster: Darcy!
[she looks around and finds the column holding the Aether, she reaches her hand out and suddenly the Aether enters her body and she passes out; at the same time we see Malekith being awakened in his ship, knowing that the Aether has been found]
Malekith: [subtitled] The Aether awakens us. The Convergence returns.
[back in Asgard, Thor walks up the bridge towards Heimdall]
Heimdall: You’re late.
Thor: Merriment can sometimes be a heavier burden than battle.
Heimdall: Then you’re doing one of them incorrectly.
Thor: Perhaps. How fare the stars?
Heimdall: Still shining. From here I can see Nine Realms and ten trillion souls.
[Heimdall looks at Thor for a moment]
Heimdall: You recall what I told you of the Convergence?
Thor: Yes, the alignment of the worlds. It approaches, doesn’t it?
Heimdall: The universe hasn’t seen this marvel since before my watch began. Few can sense it, even fewer can see it. But while its effects can be dangerous, it is truly beautiful.
[they looks out into the stars]
Thor: I see nothing.
Heimdall: Or perhaps that is not the beauty you seek.
Thor: How is she?
Heimdall: She’s quite clever, your mortal. She doesn’t know it yet, but she studies the Convergence as well. Even…
[Heimdall stops as he senses something]
Heimdall: I can’t see her.
[we see Jane being infected by the Aether]
[after Jane is infected with the Aether she reawakens in the factory, she runs out to find Darcy has called the police]
Darcy Lewis: Jane! Where the hell were you?
Jane Foster: Tell me you didn’t call the police!
Darcy Lewis: What was I supposed to do?
Jane Foster: Not call the police!
Darcy Lewis: I was freaking out.
Jane Foster: You call the cops they tell the feds, the next thing you know we have SHIELD crawling all over area fifty-one and wanting the place.
Darcy Lewis: Jane!
Jane Foster: We had a stable gratification anomaly, we had unheeded access. Our only competition was ten years old!
Darcy Lewis: Jane, you were gone for five hours!
Jane Foster: What?
[suddenly the weather turns, it starts raining and they hear the sound of thunder, Jane looks around her and puts her hand out]
Darcy Lewis: That’s weird.
[they see it’s raining but it’s not raining on Jane and Darcy, there’s an invisible barrier protecting them, suddenly Jane sees Thor standing a few feet away from them, Jane hands her gadget to Darcy and walks towards Thor, as she walks away the invisible barrier follows her and the rain starts falling on Darcy]
Darcy Lewis: Typical.
[as Jane walks towards Thor]
[as she reaches him suddenly she slaps him hard in the face]
Jane Foster: Sorry. I just needed to make sure you were real, it’s been a very strange day.
Thor: Well, I am. Jane…
[suddenly she slaps him again]
Jane Foster: Where were you?!
Thor: Where were you? Heimdall could not see you.
Jane Foster: I was right here where you left me. I was waiting and then I was crying and then I went out looking for you. You said you were coming back
Thor: I know, I know, but the Bifrost was destroyed. The Nine Realms erupted into chaos, wars were raging, marauding hordes were pillaging. I had to put an end to the slaughter.
Jane Foster: As excuses go, that’s not terrible. But I saw you on TV, you were…you were in New York!
Thor: Jane, I fought to protect you from the dangers of my world, but I was wrong, I was a fool.
