Thor: The Dark World

Sound & Vision Magazine
28 August 2014
  • Excerpt: In the 2.40:1 picture, scenes set in Asgard are extremely dark and tinted to produce a moody, otherworldly look, but there’s still plentiful depth to compositions and detail so that you can read the lettering on Loki’s collar (if you are conversant with ancient godspeak) and see the texture to robes and knitwear. Juxtaposed to this are sequences in an exceedingly bright present-day London.

Thor: The Dark World – Steelbook

BluRay Authority
20 May 2014
  • Excerpt: It’s Hammer Time! Sorry. I couldn’t resist.  The Marvel Universe is nearly infinite and I don’t think Stan “the man” Lee will rest until each and every one of his characters he created has had a feature film made.  Then again we keep seeing them, so why not keep making them?  With 2012’s The Avengers being one of the highest-grossing (if not the highest-grossing) film of all-time, there’s plenty of motivation from Marvel’s standpoint to keep shoving these super humans...

Thor: The Dark World 3D Blu-ray Review

DoBlu
12 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Another world conquering doofus steps up to challenge a Marvel hero in Thor: The Dark World , the latest in the studio’s sequel spewing efforts meant to link their media properties together. A lingering lure from The Avengers hooks into this feature as it pulls an impressively brisk narrative reset into view. The appreciable comedic snap brings a smile to this mythological goofiness, with rock monsters stomping about and dark elves leeching onto the power of Aether.

Thor: The Dark World - 3D

High-Def Digest
27 February 2014
  • Conclusion: 'Thor: The Dark World' ends up being a bore compared to the other Marvel films. A romp in space where Thor fights villains that don't matter, Loki fights just to get into the blasted movie, and the earthlings fight to have relevance. There's bound to be a few duds in Marvel's grand master plan of phased rollouts; 'Thor: The Dark World' is certainly one of them. Yet, it's got marvelous audio and amazing 2D video.

Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray Review

BigPictureBigSound
25 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The Film After 2011's Thor raked in $449 million, a sequel was almost immediately given the greenlight. Disney managed to get everyone to return for Thor: The Dark World -- except director Kenneth Branagh. Instead, Alan Taylor ( Game of Thrones ) is taking on the god of thunder's second outing. All that really matters is that Chris Hemsworth is returning as our hunky superhero. And as you'd expect, the big lug is still trying to save the universe.

Thor: The Dark World (Blu-ray Review)

24 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Thor: The Dark World comes with an absolutely perfect presentation and a focused and not overdone slew of extras.  If you’re a sucker for the Marvel stuff like I am, then you probably decided you were buying this before you even read my review.  So, just know you’re getting your money’s worth when you pick it up.  Plus, Marvel continues to strike gold with their “One-Shot” series as evidenced with their further exploration of the Mandarin.

Thor: The Dark World (Blu-ray)

24 February 2014
  • Excerpt: When Disney Studios bought the Marvel line, what they were buying was really a printing press that printed freshly-minted money. That doesn’t mean it was automatic, however. It was done right. Starting with the first two Iron Man films, the franchise that would lead to Joss Whedon’s superior Avengers film was one of creating a universe. God made the universe in seven days. It took Marvel five movies .

Thor: The Dark World Review – Blu-Ray

Game Chronicles
23 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I’ve made no attempt to hide my disdain for the original Thor movie.  I didn’t like it when I saw it in theaters, I refused to buy it on Blu-ray when it came out, and I only forced myself to watch it on cable prior to seeing Dark World in theaters last November.  Admittedly, I liked it a bit more the second time around, but that was only after having the character of Thor fleshed out a bit more in The Avengers.
