I went to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 several weeks ago. It’s an excellent movie.
Spiderman’s character is pretty close to the young, wisecracking college student in the comic book and that works well. The special effects are great. It’s fun watching Spidey web-sling his way around the city.
The romance between Peter and Gwen is touching, and there is an underlying message of hope. I absolutely love the scene with the little boy near the end. They did a good job of leaving things open for the next story also. I’m looking forward to Spiderman’s next adventure.
