. None of these villains are really bad, just mediocre. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn Dane DeHaan , returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Actually, it was 10 minutes shorter than what it is now, but in the end they have developed a bit longer to show the opening scene of the third movie. The Rhino is supposed to have a polymer bonded to his skin and augmented strength and speed. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. This reboot series had a good opening, but failed to get the momentum going.
He never lifted above the pretty silly scientist letting everyone walk all over him and doing really, really stupid things like trying to put two high voltage cables together without turning off the power. The first thing is it was nearly a 2 and half an hour movie that brought me lightly a headache to carry on thus far. The action is fun and pulse raising, but there's not enough of it to sustain a running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes. It is not funny and downright boring. It seems that Spider Man is doomed to receive mediocre to abysmal implementations on the big screen. Lets hope the next journey spidey goes on has some clarity and streamlined sense. Especially all the emotions were looked fakes that do not appeal like the original movie series did.
Definitely not worth a watch, but anyway most of the guys going to watch it or already watched it. In the history of the Spider-man movies, from all the 6 this one is the worst. Sure he tried to give a menacing appearance towards the end but to me he never really managed to elevate himself to a real super-villain. I had a high hope on this movie and it did not supply well. I think the Electro man did not click as they have expected, at least not to me. Stone is the best thing in it by far, while Garfield works hard, but there is no getting away from the fact that they both are - and look - too old for their parts. Genre Action, Adventure, Fantasy Imdb Rating 6.
Then of course there is the obligatory Peter Parker wallowing in self-pity that every director seems to just have to put in these movies. The 2nd instalment, Spider-Man 2, in the first series with Tobey Maquire still holds that title firmly. All told it's a shaky entry to the spidey world, one that once again forced Sony into another rethink. Frankly, I kind of lost interest in Spider-man. Writing this now, I'm armed with the knowledge that once again the web slinger will get another reboot in 2017, which after viewing this sequel comes as no surprise. Dane DeHaan comes in as Harry Osborn, soon to be Green Goblin, again the tortured soul act is well performed, but come Goblin time the make up and effects work is laughable. I almost got the impression that the director actually realized that Electra was not good enough and so decided to come up with some convoluted scheme to throw in The Green Goblin at the end.
Not be running around in some silly mechanical Rhino toy! Afterwards 'Batman', 'Iron Man', 'Thor' and all were followed. But expected a little better, especially in the negative characters. Otherwise the movie was fairly yawn mediocre as far as I am concerned. Though on the plus side Webb and his team are to be applauded for choosing a story line that is ultimately bold and contains a great emotional whack. The subplots were not placed in the right spots, kind of random appearance brings the chaos in understanding the story. And for the ending cliffhanger they throw in the Rhino…as some jerk in a monster mechanical suit :-. The digital 3D and stunts were poor.
Marc Webb returns to direct what Sony had hoped was the second instalment of a longer running reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. The strength he had was something beyond spider-man, but did not unleash him in a perfect manner. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. The plot is perhaps suitable for a comics magazine with its standard set of unlikely events, backstabbing big-corporate employees and disgruntled scientists becoming super villains but on the big-screen one would expect a wee bit more effort going into the plot. The Dane DeHaan role had the same issue and I don't know why people did not get better space in the movie that ran 140 minutes long. Though Jamie Foxx was not bad in that avatar, the filmmakers kind of wasted his presence for not so good scenes. Emma stone was another let down and could not help comparing her with Kristen Dunst, because she was no way near, at all.
Yes, it had a wonderful box office and that does not mean the movie is good, either worst. Yet in spite of Foxx earning some level of sympathy with the characterisation, it never really works and unfortunately draws comparisons with a certain Mr. Webb tries to juggle a screenplay with 3 villains well two and a half really , a tricky romance between Peter Parker Andrew Garfield and Gwen Stacy Emma Stone , and of course there's school, a best friend and affairs of the home heart to deal with. Between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen Stacy, high school graduation cannot come quickly enough. Having said that, being the sci-fi and super-hero fan that I am, I will probably buy the next instalment anyway if one comes out. If that makes bigger, not commercially, I mean with a good story, graphics and performances then there will be no problem.
The Amazing Spider Man 2 currently have a rating of 7. There are some nice special effect fireworks going on and there are some funny parts when Peter Parker puts on the mask and goes to action but apart from that I found the movie uninspired, with a mediocre plot and sometimes downright boring. The movie engaged with the too much character and subplots. The main villain, Electro, was … well not really giving much of an impression. Maybe because it was too soon to reboot, I guess.
Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The introduction of Electro Jamie Foxx is a good move, inputting a new villain into the spidey world is most welcome. I feel someone should take his position before it become too late. Remember the original Spider-man was the modern superhero movies, I mean it was done using computer graphics. Well, at least in my opinion. But if it fails, I had to say 'bring back the fourth installment of the original movie series'.
