MasterFlinter 5pts Is anyone else sick of Heimdall being absolutely terrible at his job? The writers need to find a better way of bringing a fight to Asgard than having people sneak in. Make it a full assault that Heimdall sees coming but the Asgardians aren't prepared to stop.Loki has been great in 2/3 movies. I dont know why he gets so much fan love for Avengers, his plans were unintelligent and he was the one being used rather than the user. He is back to his cunning ways in this one and I really liked how he played the situation to his own advantage. The costumes and special effects were really good. I still keep Hellboy 2 as the top of the fantasy based comic movies but Thor 2 pushes it. Malekith could have been done better, but If Malekith was a total HAM who could wipe out the universe on his own yet Thor was stronger, then why bother with the rest of the Marvel universe? Thor would be the only being who mattered.The issue wasn't truly about saving the universe from 'darkness', whatever that meant in the context of this movie. It was about the cost to stop Malekith. Odin was very confident that he could defeat the Dark Elves, but Thor wasn't comfortable with the lives it would cost to do it - what a contrast from the first Thor. To have Loki prey upon Thor's character development was a nice move as well.
