THOR THE DARK WORLD is a fantasy sequel in which Thor forms uneasy alliances in order to take on a sinister enemy intent on plunging the universe into darkness.

Violence

Although some of the film takes place in a contemporary, real world setting, the violence is fantastical and occurs between gods, aliens and other fantastical figures. While humans are sometimes placed in danger, they are not shown being hurt. Violence includes impressionistic fighting with swords and daggers, with very little blood. There are some heavy punches in hand to hand fighting, and sometimes loud sound effects such as a crack suggesting an enemy's neck has been broken, but without any clear sight of this. At one point, a character's hand is sliced off and instantly cauterised, so the stump looks red but is not bleeding. Soon afterwards, we learn that this was just a trick and the man is actually unharmed.

There is infrequent use of mild bad language including 'shit' and 'oh my god'. There are also mild sex references, such as a man saying he found out his ex-girlfriend was "sleeping with other dudes".
