|Loki: The Dark World|
Then I saw the first trailer - it looked a little bit darker. I guess all marvel characters, and not only, are becoming a little bit darker with time, so they can look deeper and gain a bigger audience. Some succeed, other just make another bad film, but with darker colours. So I got intrigued and gave it a chance.
Because people like to compare sequels to originals, I'll start with that. It was better than the first one. Honestly, I would go and watch it again. Don't know why, but it is far more interesting. Probably it's because it looks a little bit more mature. The Dark World is a little darker.

Everything takes action after the events in New York - The Avengers. Thor and his companions are making peace in the nine realms. Of course, like every other movie like this, a horrifying weapon appears out of nowhere, even though it has existed for thousands of years and it was documented. Nobody expected, the enemies were supposed to be dead, but here they are, trying to dominate the universe.
But before we get to that let's talk about Jane Foster - she is in England with her team - Darcy and her intern Ian. Doing their normal researches. It's been two years since New Mexico and the last time they saw Thor in person. New find an anomaly and here is where the fun starts.
I won't share any more spoilers, because there are a lot of plot twists (not M. Night Shyamalan, but good plot twists) and this motion picture won't be as interesting if you know what's happening.
Why I loved it more than the first part? What makes me want to see the next film? Yes, there will be a Thor 3. The characters are more complicated now. They are showing them in a different light. Thor is no longer a jock who simply smashes things, Loki shows there are more sides of his personality, Odin might be the allfather, but even he has his weaknesses.
It's not a typical Disney film either. Asgardians die, people die and it's not fun and games any more. But don't think it's all serious-like. This is not the Dark Knight. Of course they will put a joke or two. Of course there will be a Stan Lee cameo (and there is one more cameo that will make you laugh). That is the other big plus - it's amusing in a smart way.
And let's not forget the cliffhangers at the end of the film. Now I am eagerly expecting Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor 3.
IMDB - 7.8
Rotten Tomatoes - 72%
Me - 8/10
Go watch it! Of course there will be people disappointed, but there will be more people satisfied. Just because you hear a lot of negative reviews, it doesn't mean it's bad, it means that the people who think it's good are keeping it quiet.
