Now this is a super-hero movie, filled with crazy action scenes, great
effects, funny moments and a little cheesiness. I can't explain why I
like Spider-man movies so much, I even liked the 3rd movie which I
admit it wasn't very good, but it was entertaining and it even managed
to be very emotional for me.
Spider-man has always been my favorite super-hero. There's just
something about a super-hero fighting crime, struggling to pay the
bills and trying to find time to study. It certainly was a hero that
revolutionized the basic concept of the rich hero which has a secret
base filled with costumes, weapons, gimmicks, wheels, etc. That AND
Spider-man's charisma appealed to me, he is a funny character, he wears
a funny costume (not too ninja-like that's for sure) and he has awesome
powers! He is not an indestructible mutant nor a green beast with
infinite strength... or even a guy who bursts into flames or shoots
laser-beams outta his ass! He IS a simple hero and has enough to be
cool and interesting, spider powers! After all he is your friendly
neighbourhood Spider-man! And by the way, the original Spider-man
created a hardening, sticky liquid/glue or whatever it is called,
making his own web, because in spite of his initial superhuman powers,
Peter Parker was also brilliant teenager and used that great intellect
to his advantage. That good analysis and perception of his also saved
his ass numerous times (I confess I used to be an avid reader of the
comics and follower of its never-ending story).
And this movie delivers all that, it shows how great of a super-hero
spider-man really is, his crazy-ass awesome villains, his cheesy jokes,
his athletic and jumpy fighting style, it's all awesome to be seen! And
for action fans, be it chaotic scenes, be it car chases, sword fights
or fisticuffs action, there are some scenes in this movie that will for
sure please all of you. Starting from the Bank robbery all the way to
the train stopping, it's candy for my eyes... Spider-man vs. Dr.
Octupus, one of my favorite fights in Cinema history.
