Hello Gorgeous Reader!
It’s time for another movie review! This time it’s “The Amazing Spider-Man”. I don’t know where they got the title but it actually tells a lot about the movie. It’s just like “Spider-Man” only… amazing?! LOL ^_^
Well, as a frequent movie-goer, I’m not the kind who can easily get ’amazed’. Which is why I couldn’t really say that I was ‘amazed’ by the movie. I would say however, that with a point of comparison (which is the 2002 version) this film is surely better.
Now I’m not going to go to so much details on this because I wouldn’t want to spoil too much and make your eyes bleed reading (LOL). I’ll just go to a few points.
1. Spider Man Actors
Although, Tobey Maguire is what I would say handsome or beautiful man; Andrew Garfield had better acting than Tobey. This makes a big difference watching a movie. Maguire’s acting is like “I’m a beautiful man and beautiful droplets of tears will roll from my beautiful eyes”. Whereas Garfield’s acting says “I’m just a guy and my world is crashing… tears pour. This is very important because the lead role sets the mood of a superhero movie. The difference can go from shallow non-sense to believable.
2. Where the heck is Mary Jane?
There’s no Mary Jane in the movie which leads me to believe an ever cliché ‘love triangle’ might await the viewers in the next films. (Yes, there’s a cliffhanger before the credits so don’t leave the theater right away if you want to see)
3. Greatness is Not a One-Man Show
This is not outright said in the movie but I feel that it is something very important. For something to be great; it must always involve people coming together for a single cause. And this is what I saw, with the police letting Spider-Man go, the people who worked the cranes, the helicopter lighting his way, and the traffic enforcer clearing the road. For me, such is greatness. A hero or a superhero for that matter, could not symbolize heroism if the very people he is trying to protect dislikes him. This is one thing that makes this movie sensible. That the pieces of the story; Peters parents, his Uncle Ben’s death, contributed to him becoming a hero in a unified sensible way which was all a blur and non-sense in the last movie.
4. Some Minor Details
Thank god, uncle Ben is no longer a taxi driver! (LOL) My disappointment however was that I thought Spider-Man was going to be as chatty as the comic and animated version, which the trailer seems to lead, but it’s not like that in the movie, that was just the one and only scene he was chatty. But it’s good that those spider webs don’t shoot out of his wrists like the last version ‘coz that creeped me out!
So on the rate of 1 to 5; five being the highest, I give this movie
a FOUR, go watch and share your own opinion reader!
