Meh.  I have so little to say about this sequel, it almost doesn’t warrant a review.  I was tempted to leave the one single word and be done with it but decided some explanation was in order.  This wasn’t a terrible movie; if it had been, I would have had plenty to write.  It was just exactly what it appeared to be: the exact same special effects and action as was in the last Thor film.  It had a ridiculously convoluted and silly plot but who cares.  Really everything was par for the course for you standard superhero film.  It lacked the clever dialogue and humor that has lifted some recent films in the genre (eg “The Avengers” and the “Iron Man” films).  And, despite it’s title, it lacked any of the darkness that makes the “Dark Knight’ sage or the recent “Superman” film worth watching.  It did find a bit of humor during the final battle scene but not enough to make me want to recommend it.  So, if you liked the first one, you’ll like this one.  If not, don’t bother.
