The Not So Amazing Spider-Man 2

I saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with my daughter today. It was less than amazing, which was disappointing since Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have some pretty good chemistry (IMO). They’re cute as hell together. But the movie is a mess.

There are plot contrivances, plot holes and plot inexplicability. Character motivation is pretty arbitrary for the villains. And there are too many of them. What the movie makes me think of is the mess that was Batman and Robin.

If you really want to get into a spoilery critique of the movie read this funny IO9.com article.

Paul Giamatti is totally wasted in a role that’s little more than a cameo despite getting placement in the trailers. Same with Chris Cooper.

    I heard they rushed the movies through so they wouldn’t lose the rights back to Marvel. Lacklustre is an unsurprising result of a money decision like that.
