'SUPERB 'VISUAL' ENTERTAINMENT'
on 1 September 2014
This 'Marvel' adventure has certainly generated mixed opinions from reviewers and critic's alike,
myself, i love the visual technology this type of movie brings to the screen.
'New York's' citizens are going to need protection from the villains that are soon to threaten the
'Peter Parker' - 'Spider-man' (Andrew Garfield) finds it difficult being both Hero and giving family
and Girlfriend 'Gwen' (Emma Stone) the time and attention they deserve.
As Spider-man, Peter is soon to face perhaps his most formidable enemy to date, an enemy that
is far more powerful that himself.
Old Friend 'Harry Osborn'(Dane Dehaan) has returned taking over the Osborn Empire 'Oscorp' in
the wake of his fathers death.
'Spider-man's' biggest fan 'Max Dillon' (Jamie Foxx) an electric-wiz has suffered an accident whilst
trying to repair a fault at 'Oscorp' which has given him electronic power he's yet to harness...he has
become 'Electro' 'Spider-Man' tries to help.
Meanwhile 'Harry' who is dying believes blood from Spider-Man could save him, this he is telling to
old friend 'Peter' who promises to try and ask Spider-Man for his help.
Meanwhile at the secret 'Ravencourt' site, owned by 'Oscorp' the operatives are trying to turn 'Max'
into a Weapon to control to do their bidding.
'Harry' hasn't got the control of his fathers company he believes he has, there are those within the
company who have their own agenda of which 'Harry' has no part.
A electronic tablet 'Harry's' father had given him before dying shows secrets of the underground complex,
which will give him access to a serum that had been worked upon.
'Harry' finding himself where 'Max' is being processed releases 'Electro' to catch Spider-Man.
When a total blackout across New York occurs, Spider-Man has to do battle with 'Electro' who is now on
the loose........trouble is, solve one problem another one is sure to follow in the shape of 'The Goblin'
After a promising start with the incident on the Plane, there is a sequence of unnecessary chatter which was meant to be
amusing i guess, from our Hero whilst he deals with a gang who are stealing Nitro, the action, on, the streets of New York.
The story-line and dialogue are is a little thin on the ground the story doesn't flow as easily as the first in the new series
The films saving grace for me is indeed the spectacular Special-Effects throughout the film which are indeed impressive.
There are several good action sequences, wish the scrip had been better.
Worth a viewing on 3-D and in fact 2-D Superb picture and Sound quality throughout.
