Why do the girlfriend, (or boyfriend), of people that they know to be superheroes ever utter the words, “And don’t be late.”
OF COURSE THEY’RE GOING TO BE LATE!! THEY’RE ALWAYS LATE!! *Heavy breathing*
The previous film was entertaining enough, although I didn’t love it, but this one was sheer agony to sit through. And the only reason I sat through it was to write this review and MOAN about it!
Set eye rolling and sighing to maximum!
To be fair, it’s made to a good standard, good cameras angles and good acting and all that jazz.
But the pace, the plot! It was so boring! It had an amazing opening and the action scenes were pretty cool, but that was it!
I get why Gwen dominated so much of the film, but, wowzas, was it dull. I think they were trying to do too much with this film and ended up doing too little. All the plot ideas were all smushed together and they hoped like hell they stuck.
It took so long to set up and get to the conflict that I didn’t care. All I care about was this film ending.
Somethings I did like was Peter and his Aunt May’s banter. It still disappointed me though because Aunt May wasn’t used much.
The acting was good. I was pretty shocked by Harry. He’s so PRETTY. Forget anyone else, Peter. No girl could rival those pouty lips!
Andrew Garfield is an excellent Spiderman. Unfortunately this isn’t an excellent film to match up with that.
To sum up, Too much plot, Too little plot, Really boring, Forgettable
Was it worth the watch? No
Would I re-watch? No
