Review Roundup - Gods & Monsters

THOR: THE DARK WORLD (2013)

Apparently giving up on the far better numbered sequel system from the Iron Man series, Marvel returns with what should have been an easy job - to fix up the loose ends left between Thor and The Avengers (sorry guys nobody is ever calling it Avengers Assemble) and provide some light-hearted, action packed adventure story moments. But instead this feels like something is missing. It never feels quite right, as if it's cheaper in spite the increased budget. Perhaps it's the loss of Kenneth Branagh on directorial duties, perhaps it's the new writers. Whatever the reason they never capitalise on the interesting plot developments that were available in previous outings, and they fail put together a story that makes much sense at all.
