I am a fan of Spider-man no doubt. I loved the 1st 3 with Tobey Maguire and really wished he would have been in these, but I understand why he wasn’t. I’m not really sure I like Andrew Garfield in this part. They did write in the humor that I remember from the comic book, but just don’t like him in this roll. He is a good actor don’t get me wrong, I just don’t think this is the part for him. His look just doesn’t match the comic book look of Peter Parker.
Now I think casting Emma Stone as Gwen was great! However I do not like that they have killed her off already! She lasted really long in the comic book and there was a ton of surprise and shock when they killed her off and I think just as much when she died in this movie. Which I guess could be why they did it and I know that they may only have 3 movies so only one more left. So I get it, but it made me very sad and I really wanted to see more from her.
Now where are they going to go from here? I mean they eluded at the end that there could be more than just 1 more left, but I’m not sure. Amazing Spider-man 3 is slated to come out in 2016! Damn that is too long to wait in my opinion. There are rumors of a 4, but not sure it will be an Amazing spider-man. So who knows what will come. We do know there will be more spider-man movies just don’t know what direction they will go in. Really there are so many to choose from.
What did I think of this movie? It was a good movie for what it was. It seem rushed to me to fit things in, but most of these movies that were comic books 1st seem that way to me. The acting was very good and the special effects were “Amazing” as always. Great fight scenes. I have to say I did laugh, and cry during this movie. So it took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions which is what I’m sure the directed wanted to do.
I would say if you saw the 1st one you must see this one as well. I would pay full price and I would pay to see it again.
