Review: 2.5 stars (of five)
Watch me struggle publicly with my arbitrary need to assign a “rating” to this flick: For a fan of the Thor comics by the likes of Jack Kirby and Walt Simonson, the second Thor film is worth three stars out of five. It delivers a lot of pleasures for fans of this stuff. Fans of the first movie, or the greater Avengers movieverse, will find that it scratches the same itches with less lag, but also less coherence; three stars from that...
