The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

If video is not shown correctly, you can watch it here.

I don't review The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the video. If I did, I would have done that in Kvesti on Movies format. I wanted to tell what was wrong with the movie and how I would have changed it.  I talked about Marvel's and Sony's collaboration, you can read my blog post about it here.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 got very bad reviews. It was supposed to be beginning of Sony's Spider-Man universe. I was excited after The Amazing Spider-Man. I wanted to see sequel. First movie promised good things. Too bad sequel could not deliver those good things. Is it as bad as reviews say? I would say no. It is better than review let you believe. It has huge issues. Main issues is that it was supposed to launch Spider-Man Universe and introduce characters for the spin-offs.

It did this but by doing this it got too many characters and too many stories. Characters and stories which had nothing to do with this movie. They were there that we would already know them when they appear in sequels. Even without them there would have been too much content.

I was disappointed when I learned Elektro was main villain of this movie. I am not fan of the character. When posters showed Green Goblin I didn't understand why Elektro was main villain. There was brief moment when Elektro looked like worthy main villain. That moment was right after he became Elektro and before he got angry at Spider-Man. Rest of the movie he was badly written, boring character.

Over all The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is average superhero movie. It has good things and bad thing. Is it worth of watching? I don't know. You don't need to see for later movies since it seems like there won't be any movies continuing this story. On its own it is quite a mess.

This is first video where I used daylight as light source. I have to use it at some point because I live in Finland and during summer we have daylight all the time. During winter we have that very little. Other new thing in this video is that I dropped bad transmission effect. When I edited last video I started to think, why I make video look good and then destroy it with bad transmission effect. Now it is gone. I am not sure if I do same with Kvesti on Movies' faulty projector effect.

If you liked the video you can find more videos from here.
