WARNING! This review contains spoiler, you may read it when you have watched the movie.
I will not compare this reboot movie with the precedent.
And, I review this in a woman perspective, so reader discretion is advice
Dikarenakan suatu kejadian misterius, Peter Parker dititipkan orang tuanya ke Uncle Ben dan Aunt May, kemudian diketahui bahwa orangtuanya meninggal dunia. Peter sendiri tumbuh menjadi remaja yang cerdas, meskipun untuk itu ia harus puas menjadi ‘outsider’ di sekolah, yang bahkan tidak berani berbicara dengan gadis yang ditaksirnya, Gwen Stacy.
Sebuah barang peninggalan ayahnya membawanya ke Oscorp Industries, dimana ia bertemu dengan teman lama ayahnya, Dr. Curt Connors. Tak disangka, kunjungan ke Oscorp Industries ini juga sebagai permulaan dimulainya petualangan Peter Parker sebagai The Amazing Spiderman.
Maybe it’s a little subjective, but I always love Andrew Garfield (he is now officially my celebrity crush. I officially ended it with Michael Cera yesterday). He was amazing as Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network or as Anton in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. He’s definitely an actor. As Spiderman, he is also amazing, he brings Spiderman looks more fun, even though for me his face is not ‘geek’ enough to be Peter Parker (and, also his fashion sense in the movie; hoodies + black slim-fit jeans + nike shoes = HOT, even hotter than red and blue spandex). Also, don’t forget about Emma Stone that stunning as Gwen Stacy, as usual she always brings her comedy sense in perfect fit.
Their chemistry is also flawless (despite the fact that they are real-life couple. CUTE to the max!!).
And, don’t forget Rhys Evans as the villain, Lizard, which completely embodies the character. The new characterization is refreshing and I’m glad that all characters are developing along the movie.
What I love from this re-boot is they make it totally different. From the characterization, the camera movement, the scoring, and they bring more humor in it. Look when Spiderman uses his phone to call Gwen in the middle of the street (in his custom, if I may add) or when he played Bubble Pop when he was waiting the Lizard to come out from his evil lair. And, the scene of Stan Lee appearance is hilarious!! Another thing that I like is there are a little twists and surprises in every scene.
Also, they bring the hero’s love interest into the fight. She’s trying to help Spiderman without any hesitation. And, don’t expect Gwen to be the hostage of Lizard to bail Spiderman to come out (as other superhero movies do, no mention), because it won’t happen. Eventually, all those things make Peter Parker as Spiderman cannot keep his promise to Gwen’s dad.
In conclusion, this movie is showing the Spiderman as a high school student, the one that would like to brag about their superpower, the one that still childish enough, the one that like to have fun and have a joke even when he’s fighting his enemy. Long story short, Spiderman looks more ‘human’. A definitely good job from Marc Webb.
- My disappointment about this movie is the duration, which I think too long and some scenes are too much in slow pace.
- I know that a death of one character is targeted to be the turning point of Peter Parker, but it seems too arranged.
- Maybe some people will think this movie brings too much drama and teenage angst
- There’s something wrong with the costume, which make me feel kind of uncomfortable when I see it. I think it’s too slim, but turns out that how Spidey has to look like
- If you want to enjoy this movie, do not compare this movie with the precedent. Just enjoy the ride.
- If you have some extra money, watch it on IMAX 3D. I believe you wouldn’t be disappointed.
- Don’t move from your seat when you see Mark Webb name on the screen, there’s something interesting in the middle of credit tittle.
So, what are you waiting for, go to theater near you, grab some pop corn, and enjoy the amazing jump and swing with Spiderman!!!
