Movie Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2

  1. It finds many ways to entertain with its flashy visual effects and action sequences, and just be fun in general. Good review David.

  2. I actually really enjoyed this movie, as well as the first one. One of my few concerns about 2 though, is actually completely contradictory to one of yours: I thought there was way too much plot going on. Too much happening in one movie to follow, for my tastes (3 villains introduced, coinciding subplot about Peter’s family, etc.). Aside from a few other nitpicky type things, I thought it was a well thought out film. Peter had motives and character development. Plus I enjoy Andrew Garfield’s performance as Peter Parker leagues more than Tobey Maguire. Garfield and Stone had amazing onscreen chemistry, and Gwyn was possibly my favorite character in the whole series, which is leagues up from Mary Jane in the Rami films (who I thought was practically a prop). I think both Spider-Man film series are good in their own merit and I honestly have a tough time comparing them, but The Amazing Spider-Man just barely wins out for me.
