Just got back from Spiderman 2 and… well:
Walk with me here, folks…
What I was expecting from this movie was this: that it would be genuinely better than the first, in both story-telling, plot, character developement, and fight scenes.
Were my expectations met? Yes, yes they were. For the most part… I’ll try to describe my few gripes without spoilers first, for those who still haven’t seen it: I thought that too much was revealed towards the end of the movie, which doesn’t leave much for character developement in the next movie. OK, that’s the best way to put it. Also, nothing was seen from the Lizard guy (forgot his name,) if they would’ve hinted at that, I think it would have been really awesome, but I guess that’s a personal thing.
Fight Scenes- Great (LOVED the fight on the subway/train)
Special Effect & Sound- Spectacular
Dialog- Good for the most part with a few cheesy lines
(Not the greates movie I’ve seen, but definitely worth spending the $7.. if you’re going to spend that much….)
My favorite scene:
I’m usually a pessimist, so my favorite scene was when Peter was just not having his day…or night, at a gala. Every time he grabbed for an hoer’s deurve(sp?), someone else grabbed it before he got to it, he got dissed, smacked, and rejected by his best friend Harry, and he finds out that MJ has found someone new, and it’s his boss’s son! All of this withing a five-minute period, and after it all, he tries to grab a drink, only to find the glass empty… horribly sad.
Least favorite scene:
What dissapointed me was pretty much the entire end of the movie, after the final battle. The fact that both Harry and MJ discover who he is in this movie removes most, if not all of the tension that existed between Peter and these characters. I think it was a little too little to leave for the next movie (characterwise, between these 3,) but who knows, I haven’t seen the script for SM3.
OK, so I guess that does it, hope it helps!
Oh, and I got a free spidey foam mit when I first got there, that was cool.
