Richard of Pop Cults writes "Thor is back, but has the wait been worth it? After The Avengers and Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World had a lot to live up to. And while I think that the film is a good superhero film, it doesn’t quite live up to what has come before it… not even the first film. But it’s not all a bad thing. And it is understandable that one of the Marvel films would fall a bit short, but seeing that, even though it doesn’t live up to the previous recent films, I still loved this film immensely."
