Number of Times Seen – 1 (24 Jul 2014)
Brief Synopsis – The continuing adventures of high school aged Spiderman who must deal with his love of Gwen Stacy amidst his promise to her father and two new villainous threats to the city.
My Take on it – I gotta say that I liked this movie but was slightly disappointed by the storyline, the villains and the pompous attitude of Andrew Garfield as Spiderman. I felt that he taunted the criminals too much and it seems that hubris will get to him one of these days.
Jamie Foxx wasn’t the best choice for Electra but he did an adequate job. I think that we only got a glimpse of the better villain played by Paul Giamatti as the Rhino who seems like a better rival. Hopefully his role will be expanded in the next installment.
The story was more action packed and slightly better than the first one but both still don’t compare to the stories and character development of the Tobey Maguire trilogy.
This movie also suffers from too much exposition and story lines
Bottom Line – Once again the Spiderman sequel is better than the origin story because you can get right into the action. Villains aren’t so great tho and they tried to add too much exposition that bog down the story a bit. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
