True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Movie Review: The Amazing Spiderman 2

Starring: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx 
Directed by: Marc Webb

BLURB: We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man.

But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. 

With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

REVIEW: Your friendly neighborhood Spider-man is back with as much or more web slinging angst as ever in the sophomore movie of the Spider-man reboot series. Andrew Garfield reprises his role as the masked crusader and he has more thrown at him in this one than ever before. He is battling the normal street thugs of New York- the petty criminals that are always running around and then he has to deal with the appearance of The Rhino, and his friend Harry Osborne is going off the rails following in his sinister father’s footsteps…and then there is Electro. Electro is the worst of the bunch as he is definitely the most powerful villain in this one by far. He can literally suck electricity from any source around him and direct it wherever he likes. So Spidey more than has his hands full for sure!

His alter ego Peter Parker hasn’t had it easy either as he has been struggling big time with hiding his superhero identity from Aunt Mae. And he has been tormented with the promise that he made to Gwen Stacey’s father. In the first movie he promised a dying Captain Stacey that he would stay away from Gwen to keep her safe from those that would come after Spider-man and use her to get to him. But he can’t fight the draw between himself and the beautiful Gwen and their relationship continues to grow. (You can definitely see the real chemistry between Garfield and Stone as they are now boyfriend and girlfriend in real life as well. It definitely shows in their scenes together onscreen they make a really cute couple!)

We also get more about Peter's father’s back story than we did in the first film. It turns out he has a lot more involvement with the experiments at Oscorp that led to his son becoming Spider-man years later than Peter ever imagined.

With multiple enemies out to squish Spider-man, and all the problems weighing on him as Peter can he overcome the overwhelming odds and protect NY and those closest to him? Or will the endgame take from him what means the most to him and destroy him forever?

I really enjoyed this one. It's not my favorite but it's a good superhero/action flick that the whole family can enjoy. I think Garfield does a great job as the nerdy Peter and his alter ego Spidey. I thought it was just as good as the first one, if not a little bit better. There is a lot of action, drama, and yes even romance so there is something for everyone. My 15 year old son really liked it as well.There is a lot of the normal superhero vs. villian violence but it's nothing that you can't really see worse of on regular nightly TV now a days I don't think.

The only thing I really didn’t like about it was Jamie Foxx he plays Electro. I’m not a fan of his and wish they had gotten someone else to play him, but you can’t have everything right and since he is cast as one of the villain's he isn't glorified in this one at all.
Spider-man hits DVD and Blu-ray on August 19th! I will for sure be adding this one to our DVD collection. Click on the link below to get your copy too!

Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action/violence

 Just some kisses between Gwen and Peter nothing steamy at all.
