Thor (Hemsworth) returns to Asgard to find the peace threatened by the re-emergence of old enemies the Dark Elves, led by Malekith (Eccleston). Despite experienced director Taylor, it's less satisfying than Branagh's original; Thor has become one-dimensional and the greater emphasis on humour makes for a more uneven style.
