Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World ★★

Though enjoyable if simply looking for a superhero action/fantasy movie, in its larger context the film seems bland. There is little emotional buildup or investment to keep the viewer engaged in the plot. The writing and plot connections seem to be the execution of a rough draft instead of a final, revised, perfected output expected of the MCU. The only substantial material to come out of the film that builds on the wider MCU story is the increasing complexity of the Thor/Loki relationship.
