Genre : Fantasy
Country : USA
Andrew Garfield : Peter Parker
Emma Stone : Gwen Stacy
Rhys Ifans : Dr. Curt Connors
As a young boy I devoured Marvel comic books and I was addicted to everything that had to do with superheroes. I think this film is fantastic to swoop with Spiderman between buildings. A nice and entertaining film to let your mind go blank, with nice acting, good effects, a terrifying bad guy and a story line that matches the comic books.
What is wrong with it then ? Nothing actually. But for me it’s just a remake of “Spider-Man” from 2002. The story of Peter Parker is being redone and, besides the bad guy, brings nothing new. It only looks like they had to crank up the merchandising again.
I thought Tobey Maguire did a better job in playing Peter Park. And Kirsten Dunst looked more delicious as side kick of Spiderman. But Emma Stone also looks adorable.Willem Dafoe I found much better as the mutated villain compared to Rhys Ifans. But maybe it’s because I have the 2002 film “Spider-Man” on DVD and have seen it already a zillion times. Maybe that’s why I think that one is better.
