Andrew Garfield

Plot:

When atrocities threaten New York, Spider-Man must protect the citizens of New York and his loved ones before New York’s heart befalls into tragedy.

Review:

Ok so hospitals and airports, places like that, have generators that would kick in when the grid goes down. They’re independent of the electrical grid, at least that’s my understanding of it. So I call bullshit on that part of the movie.

I knew what happened to Gwen Stacey, Emma Stone, from the comics, but I was surprised that the movie went that direction. I hope they wait until the end of the next movie to introduce Mary Jane, at the earliest. He needs to mourn and not jump into his next relationship.

I liked this one less than the last. It seemed to channel too much angsty teen and that’s one of my biggest pet peeves.

Jamie Fox’s character was so pathetic you couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. Sadly he never became an amazing supper villain. In the end he was just following Harry’s orders. I know it could be argued that they were in a partnership but it didn’t feel that way.

I’ll watch the next installment but I’m not going to see it in theaters.

2.5/5
