Nuffnang Premiere Screening: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Marvel superhero return to the big screen once again, this time with a 2 hours + blockbuster action thriller of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Heading back to a premiere screening after quite some time, the first thing that came to my mind while entering the theatre was: how amazing can Spider-Man be? Being the most filmed Marvel superhero, could Director Marc Webb’s spider-Man escape the web of familiar storyline & cliché..

Storyline: “We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.” (c) Columbia Pictures     

Overall The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is pretty much similar to its blockbuster debut in 2012, a perfect modern Hollywood blockbuster franchise film. With that being said, despite the stunning visual & sounds, there’s still more to be expect in the movie thanks to the strong performances from the entire cast. Having real-life couple Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone gives a great boost in chemistry to the movie & the ‘slightly-deviate-from-the-original’ story line involving Peter Parker's parents is indeed a good attempt. The first-person shots of spidey featured and some of the big exciting action scenes of Electro were pretty entertaining, and the character of Spider-Man which made more human does worth some extra credits.      

Though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn’t an outstanding masterpiece still this it is indeed an entertaining & enjoyable action thriller. It is nice to see Spider-Man onscreen again. :)
