THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 : “The most special effect is Andrew Garfield’s wonderful acting.”
Review written By Sandro Monetti
The real superhero behind the success of the new Spider Man films is Andrew Garfield, who does a wonderful acting job in the starring role.
But that’s what he’s done with Peter Parker and it’s why we can cheer for him so loudly as Spider-Man, knowing there’s a vulnerable young man under the Spidey suit.
Always fascinating to watch in the smaller films he made before, Garfield has taken the step up to blockbusters in his stride and is, as in the original, the most amazing thing about The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Yes, the film is too long at 2 hours 22 minutes and maybe has one villain too many but it still belts along at a great energy thanks to its most special effect of all – the appealing acting of its leading man.
The driving force of the movie is the quest of both characters to find out more about their fathers. The answers they receive send the old friends in two very different directions.
RATING: 4 out of 5.
