Whereas you got his backstory and motivation in Thor, you got to see him as the marvel villain he has been for years in Avengers. Now more people need to see it, so we don't get stuck arguing in a loop.
Yeah but thats the thing, in Thor he wasnt outright vicious since he was doing everything in secret, which is exactly how Loki really is. He does things in the shadows and then acts surprised when something happens. He undermines everyone. But after being banished from Asgard he pretty much is out in the open and can act as he pleases, which is also how he is. Both characters were spot on.

Yeah I won't debate that. Loki is easily one of the more complex long term comic villains, and any way he comes off as a bastard is good in my book. Going to have to go black now

The combat aspect was really my biggest issue with Loki in the Thor film as compared to him in Avengers. In Thor he was much more a straightforward combatant, both at the beginning when he isn't the villain yet and at the end when he is full on villain. Aside from using an illusion a couple time and throwing some kind of dart thing he really just goes toe to toe with Thor in melee combat. Which is very much NOT Loki, who 9 times out of 10 uses magic. On the other hand in Avengers he is magicking the fuck out of everything the whole movie. Which to me is much more in line with his character than the throw down he has with Thor at the end of his film. As far as mischief goes, I still feel he was pulling more strings throughout the Avengers flick than Thor. Keep in mind that in Thor while he did start the chain reaction that caused the movie's conflict, he really capitalized on a number of stuff that was out of his control: Odinsleep, Thor's banishment. In Avengers from the very first scene til the end you know he is the complete asshole who set all this shit up.(note: I thought the scene with the aliens threatening Loki to be the weakest scene in the movie and it didn't really fit with the rest of the story, as the story was 'Loki tries to fuck everything Thor likes over')

Having said all that, I was very very very happy that Loki fought multiple avengers 1v1 with no bs gimmick for the end fight like in IM2. I was really worried about that when I saw the scene with Thor powering IM up. Hulk vs Loki was too awesome.

Loki fights both ways. Depending on the situation and also who hes facing. With Thor his rage is too powerful and he usually attacks him with all hes got. With others he'll use magic and tricks. As a Norse god who lives on Asgard, basically all of them know how to fight. When Thor and Loki square up for Ragnarok you'll notice they both fight together with weapons. He's powerful and both ways he's written are correct. You're talking preference of how you like to see Loki. I've been a massive Thor whore since I was like 8 lol. I love everything to do with the norse gods.

I was worried about Mark as Banner but he did a great job with maintaining the muted emotions Banner does, but also being able to convey emotion when appropriate. I think out of any of the cast the weakest is Scarlet as Black Widow. She just doesn't have the sultry attitude I would expect. She also doesn't convince me at all of being a Russian. But still she does quite well. Most importantly they did a great job of it feeling like a team movie. No one character really took the spot light, they all got great moments, even Loki.

But let's keep on the important topic...

Motherf#@king Thanos!!!

Just be sure to stay for the credits if you want to see it. Sequel should be boss.

SAW THE MOVIE LAST NIGHT!


MOTHERFUCKING THANOS! HULK VS. LOKI! HULK VS. THOR!!!! THOR PROPERLY BEING BITCHED OUT BY HULK!!!


I AM WATCHING THIS AGAIN. Looks like this movie and the raid have my "double dip" money. It was funny because I kept throwing my money at the screen and the movie still ended


Also this goes to show that IT CAN BE DONE. If you have the right people behind it who are passionate, respectful to the source material, and knowledgeable, and have other like-minded individuals involved can create these kinds of movies.

You guys remember when they said it was impossible to have a guy in a red white and blue suit in a movie? It can be done.
