1LR Midnight Movie: Amazing Spider-Man Instant Reaction

Add caption
I just got back from the midnight showing of Amazing Spider-Man.

Was it truly "Amazing?" Well... it was good but I wouldn't call it "Amazing."

The comparisons to the prior films are inevitable. It wasn't as good as the first or second Spider-Man films but it was better than the third.

It's hard to define why that it. In some ways the story felt forced along as if it took effort to get from one scene to another. There's a good deal of, "Why did that happen like that?" Answer: "Because that's what needed to happen to move the story forward." The film lacks strong central themes to tie the disparate storylines together.

The film hints at some mysteries concerning Peter's parents but it doesn't give enough information to even really tease you.

There IS a mid-credits scene but I can say the audience felt disappointed by it.

So "Amazing?" No. Worth watching. Definitely.
