I saw the trailers, the leaks and the news flash here and there, the reviews and now I have finally seen it. I give to you The Amazing Spiderman 2 review. #TAS2
THE BRAINS: Directed by Marc Webb, written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinker, The Amazing Spiderman 2 stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey, Jamie Foxx as Electro/Max Dillon, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne/Green Goblin, Sally Field as Aunt May, Colm Feore as Donald Meken & Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich.
THE STORY: TAS2 picks up from where the first movie left off with Peter Parker now being Spiderman who is facing so many issues ranging from being himself & Spiderman, trying to maintain his relationship with Gwen while at the same time keeping his word to her late father about staying away from her & being there for his Aunt May. Things take a different turn when a new villain (Electro) comes into town and threatens to take down Spiderman and the whole city alongside with him. Check the trailer out below.
ANALYSIS: Firstly I must state that TAS2 is way better than its predecessor and I must commend the director and the writers (especially the writers as the writers for TAS 1 are different from the writers for TAS2) for the major improvement. Andrew Garfield played his role way better than the previous though I believe he could do a lot more with the role. The same goes for Emma Stone though she did just fine and I was impressed with her performance. But the stand out performance has to go to Jamie Foxx. Really enjoyed the way he portrayed his role as Max Dillon/Electro. The main plot was great while the sub plots where above average. The visuals in the movie was great, no shaky cameras and the angles were well shot. As for the action scenes, well I got to say I love this Spiderman more. He’s got style and certain finesse that endears you to him. All in all, TAS2 is a major step up from its prequel. As for that sub plot thrown in towards the end (no spoilers will be revealed), I found it cool as I heard people complaining about it.
FINAL WORD: TAS2 is a big step up from its predecessor and must commend it for balancing all the necessary wheels needed to make it run though I would have loved a little more action scenes and plot.
