Reviews Of Movie:
Just five years after the widely-disliked Peter Parker 3(not me, however), Columbia Pictures have chosen to present Peter Parker and his alter identity, Spiderman a fresh start. This film is fundamentally like 2002’s but it has some variations, including a change in personality in Peter. I’m not sure if I find this film to be any more enjoyable than the first trilogy. This is an action-packed film, is a fantastic cast, and an interesting villain named “The Lizard,” but it doesn’t live in the same way as the series that made Spider-Man the name he has today.
Marc Webb’s film examines the history of Spider-Man and, unlike the other films we get to know more about Peter’s history, including the events that affected his family. While Peter is looking into his past, he’s taken to his father’s former lover who turns out to be more intelligent than himself. Additionally, Peter strikes a relationship with the daughter of the police chief, Gwen Stacy.
The acting isn’t very bad. The Andrew Garfield/Emma Stone duo isn’t as effective as the Maguire/Dunst pair however they are excellent and it’s great to see a bit of cockiness in Peter’s personality instead of complete boredom. The Lizard who is played with a great performance by Rhys Ifans, is an excellent villain to follow. The other cast members were rounded out with Denis Leary, Martin Sheen along Sally Field gives this film an extra dose of starstruck force.
Overall, this film is not a bad movie and is very enjoyable. We have to consider, is this an appropriate reboot? Personally, I’d prefer to have seen Spider-Man 4, but who’s to say no to that. It’s a decent entry into the genre of superheroes even though it doesn’t really offer anything original. However, I enjoyed it and that’s all that is important. I give this film an 8/10.
