Hello everybody!!! It’s a nice weekend for another movie review. Today we’re going to talk about The Amazing Spiderman 2!!. Yeah, Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. The story is kinda dark and emotional for me. not forgetting, the villains. Plural. Let’s get started.
Let’s talk about the plot for a little bit. So, after a year (plus minus) of ending in the first movie, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) relationship has been on and off. Both love each other but Peter having a harsh trauma about his promise to Gwen’s dead father.
When stopping a robbery, Spiderman save a man known as Max (Jamie Foxx). In an unfortunate accident (on his birthday), he become Electro. He felt betrayed when a cop shot at him despite Spiderman’s words about helping him.
Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) who inherited his father’s wealth learned a terrible secret. He have some kind of inherited disease that will kicked right about his age. his pursue on a cure and a rejection from Spiderman leads him to team up with Electro.
Spiderman a.k.a Peter Parker pays a terrible cost upon defeating his opponents. Gwen Stacy’s death.
Anyway, back to the review. Like I said before, the theme is kinda dark and emo. It’s not as bright and fun as the first one. The relationships between Peter and Gwen, Peter and his aunt and even with the city itself. It’s all kinda dark. It’s not boring but seriously, it’s dark.
The character is evolving especially Peter. Peter who then love having a superpower, now realized that he have a really big responsible to the city especially when Gwen died. It seems that Gwen is Peter’s centre all this time. I mean, just like Harry’s word, Peter need Gwen more than she needs him. Both him and his Spiderman avatar.
The introduction of Electro really put a spark into this gloomy movie. Jamie played it perfectly although it’s little awkward seeing him in a glass, nerdy style. I like him when him become Electro. The theme music “My Enemy” is my jam right now. But, somehow creepy. Green Goblin made a little appearance. Although in IMDB trivia, it’s said that his battle with Spiderman were much gruesome than portrayed in the movie.
The CGI is awesome. I love the slow-mo effect in the movie. Particularly, during first time clash between Electro and Spiderman. And I learned some educational stuff too. About electronic. You’ll see more on my next Gundam post.
In my opinion, this movie is awesome and worth watching twice. I already watch it twice so, I can tell you the movie is awesome. I’ll recommend you to watch it. just for fun. Until then, see ya around.
