Peter Parker struggles to adjust to being a superhero while having to fight many new villains from Oscorp.
CGI at its best. I do recommend seeing this movie in 3D. Being a superhero movie, of course there is going a crazy amount of CGI, but it’s top of the line. Andrew Garfield reprises his role of Spidey and like the first movie, doesn’t disappoint. As Peter, he needs to figure out his direction as the superhero and the direction of his relationship with Gwen. Jamie Foxx plays the bad guy Electro. He starts off as the quiet, often ignored electrical engineer who just wants to be noticed and treated like a human being, not a nobody, and takes that problem, when turning into a bad guy, and uses that as his source of rage. Dane DeHaan took on the role of Harry Osborn/The Green Goblin, and for how brief you see him as the Goblin, it looks almost like the Joker from the Dark Knight and if they run with that, expect big things later on in the series.
This movie was almost too big with all the villains, and many times the tension was broken by some joke to try and make the mood lighter, but all in all the writing was good and the direction of the movie was too the point and Marc Webb did the best he could while making it a 2+ hour movie instead of 3. Plus they set it up for more sequels.
As always Hans Zimmer and the music = awesome.
I recommend this movie for comic book movie people, as well as most people aged 13-25.
I give it 7 out of 10 popcorns
Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action/violence
