Epic. Now, before you decide to jump out of your chair, call the boys, and head for the theater, HEAR ME OUT. First of all, if you’ve read some of my other reviews, I don’t rate movies very high. In fact, my average rating if I had to give it a number – 6/10. I have very high expectations for movies and most of them don’t cut it. Sure, I’m not paid for reviews (which probably makes them better than the critics that are). I mean come on, all the critics that aren’t paid probably put more effort into their reviews (because it’s fun and they enjoy it) than the ones that are (majority of them).
Anyways… Spiderman. Excellent theatrics, cgi, acting, comedy, everything. I’m not a comic book fanatic so I don’t know how true it is to the actual story (although I’ve been told a few things). Some of the fight scenes seemed rush and less than spectacular. After all, most heroes fight their battles in front of spectators. Some of these battles weren’t. SPOILER (if you want to read it, it’s at the end). They’ve already set up for Spidey 3 and a villian movie. Whoo, yeah! (I guess…)
So, yes, definitely go see it. You’ll walk away wishing certain things were different, didn’t happen, or had happened other ways. You’ll probably let a few tears escape, cheer on the Spiderman, and laugh at his corny jokes. All in all, it was worthit. And there’s not much else I can about the movie. Most superhero movies I’ve seen don’t deserve the praise they are given (in my book) such as Man of Steel, Captain America 2, Clash of the Titans, and Avengers (kill me if you want). But this one? This one deserves a round of applause and then a moment of silence.
Job Well Done.
The constant break up and get back together was a bit of a nuisance. The first Spiderman trilogy spread out some of the action over three movies where as this Spiderman seems to have squished everything in its entirety into two movies. I’m not even sure what the third one is going to be about…
