This did crack me up though:

[spoiler]At Charing Cross Tube "How do I get to Greenwich?!" says Thor

"It's just three stops" responds the woman on the tube.

This is NOT going to fool ANY Londoners!!! :rofl2:[/spoiler]

I know this. I tried some stuff with my hammer and it just falls to the floor.

Not a patch on the first Thor film. Way too much confusing different worlds, different (but similar looking monsters/soldiers in identical armour. So glad of Thor's red jumper and yellow hair to identify him.
Loki continually reminded me of Micheal Sheen. Miscast?

Like the appearance of some of The Avengers in cameo. Have I missed something else that Thor has been in as I didn't understand his familiarity with Eric. Were they in something else since Thor 1? My audience kept laughing at Eric's every appearance. What did they know?

Quite sure I saw Beate standing at her window in some of the London/Greenwich exterior shots.

Kinda lame. 5/10. Not a great Marvel movie.
Erik was a BIG part of The Avengers. :)

Really enjoyed it. Another solid entry into the MCU. Be interesting to see if they do a direct sequel, or look elsewhere for "Phase 3"

Saw this earlier today and really enjoyed it, thought it was better than the first film and actually marginally preferred it to 'The Avengers' as well.

Overall I think this is definitely worth a trip to the cinema so it gets an 8/10 from me o/ ...

It is hard for any film to surpass Avengers Assemble (one of Marvel's best superhero films IMO) but this is a good effort and a decent follow-up to Thor. Tom Hiddleston helped elevate this from the humdrum sequel it could have been as the story was a bit meh by adding some much needed comedy to all the action scenes, 7.5/10.

I had the misfortune to attend a screening where the people in front of me had brought a toddler with them, yes a toddler, to a 12A film at an evening showing. The girl (no more than 3 years old) predictably got bored and restless and the parents seemed to think saying sshhh loudly over and over again was the solution, until this prompted an argument with another audience member which was incredibly distracting. Do people have no common sense?!
