Movie: The Amazing Spider-man 2
Genre: Fantasy Adventure
Starring: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx
My Rating: Two thumbs up
Yeah, so you may be sick of Spider-man. Even so, these movies make such good stories! Especially when you love the actors telling the stories! Sigh.
This movie picks up shortly after the first one left off. Peter is trying to stay away from Gwen since that's what he promised her dying father. But he... just can't! And then he can. And they break up. But then they can't. And then they are together and then, bad stuff happens. And it all goes terribly wrong!
And there's this one dude who at first likes Spider-man because he was saved by him and and Spider-man told him... "you be my eyes" and he's feeling good about that, the dude. But then there's an accident and he gets massively electrocuted but of course he doesn't die but turns into ELECTRO! And now, he suddenly HATES Spider-man. But I forget why. But Spider-man can't fight him because he's so powerful, but with Gwen's help they figure it out! And yay! The day is saved.
But no. There's Harry Osborne and he's upset too because he needs Spider-man's blood and Peter (aka Spider-man you know) won't give it too him. He gets very very mad and then he finds out how to be a super-powered villain himself! (I seriously didn't quite get this transition....) And then things get even worse.
Whew. It's so fast paced and mind spinning. And there's so many wonderful rides flying through the city that when you get to see it at the Imax 3D ( and of course I highly recommend this) it's like you are on a ride. It literally tickled my stomach! Cool cool cool!
The best thing about this movie is that it has heart, in between all the special effects and crazy things. You see the villains back story and you GET why they are so upset and mad and sad. You GET them. It makes it all the better.
Bottom line: Seriously, who cares if you are sick of comic book super hero movies. You should totally go see this one. At the Imax. In 3D.
Oh, and by the way, the music. Yes. I loved it. And Andrew Garfield? Loved him too.
Here's the trailer:
And here's the one of the cool crazy songs from the movie:
(You may want to blast it. Just sayin')
Let me know if you've seen it and what you think.
