Chris (Jonathan Howard) has returned to France from England after a rather hasty departure the last time. He meets his friends Luc (Jonathan Demurger) and Ludivine (Fanny Valette), even though there’s obvious tension between them. But Luc doesn’t want to let it go. So he hops into a cab with Chris and tries to convince him to forget the past. As they get out of the cab, Luc decides to skip paying the driver (Jess Liaudin) and Chris gets pulled along. But the driver won’t let it go and so Chris and Luc find themselves being chased through the city.
Night Fare starts well enough, in the beginning it’s moody and atmospheric. But as soon as the movie gets to its conclusion and reveals the driver’s agenda, it just becomes so stupid I wanted to cry.
Ever since the events in Avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has done his best to ensure the peace across the realms, while Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is locked up on Asgard. Which means that Thor doesn’t have time for Jane (Natalie Portman) who is still waiting for him. But when Jane stumbles on the Aether, an ancient weapon, Thor comes to her aid, just as Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) comes for the Aether, planning to destroy the universe with it.
As much as I love the first Thor movie – and I do – I have to admit that it doesn’t quite reach the heights that Thor: The Dark World reaches. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard in a movie, especially an action movie. It does almost everything completely right and it’s just plain great.
