Thor: The Dark World II
scenes in the realm of dark elves, filmed in Iceland;
also, scenes in London with action alternating between them;
interaction between a small group of mortals and the Aesir;
Thor temporarily separated from his hammer having to travel by Underground;
- and falling past the windows of a London office building;
good visuals for Asgard;
a reference to Odin's father;
as before, a well-cast Odin, Thor and Loki;
Loki's perpetual combination of being hard done by with irreconcilable malice;
a former Doctor Who unrecognizable under his dark elf make-up;
the strong sense of a continuing story both for Thor and for the Movieverse.
Any bad points?:
"the aether" is not the best name for the force of darkness;
Thor refers to himself as a man.
