So much hype… so many talked about it. I was bored when I saw the same trailer on and on each time I enter the cinema. I normally think movies that was overly promoted didn’t look good. Why? Because I think they spent their money on the wrong place.
Then again, it’s worth every single thing to hype about since many loved Spiderman since they were kids… playing with their imagination spider web and stuff. Yes, hype.. hype and hype. It’s all around us. The TV is showing the prequels… they are bombarding us even more with the animated series which one version of it comes in a 3D (glow finishing) that I personally think… sux.
Leave that all aside, I was pretty much ready to see Spiderman which of course I regretted. Not to say it was bad.. but I sorta regret watching it after The Number 23. I know it is of total different genre… but I just can’t help it.
Now, I have tried to write down in short points what this movie is about before the spoilers and must I say.. even the short note takes up 2 pages of my notebook. So, yes… many things have been going on. Hence don’t expect details. It’s a long movie 2 1/2 hour show so expect poor consistancy. I guess this is not a new thing… you are right.. his superhero suit is torn once again… and yes… someone pulled of his mask… and yes… people identified him. I did spoil it all for you? I don’t think so.. since now that most of the people have watched it. Haha… right, I watched it on the premier and have been warned to not post it up so soon to spoil then with what I have to say. Talk about some who can’t stop looking at the spoilers 🙂
I didn’t like the starting. Is it me or is the Marvel comic flip intro shorter than any other Marvel intro. How could they make it shorter! How could they! I just love to see the starting of the intro and yet they take the best part away. The worst case senario is when they put a long and boring Spiderman start… which I guess was crucial for those who missed out what happen on the previous movie. But then again… I think it was overly long and it just wasn’t as great as the comic flip. Haha… I know.. I know.. I can’t get over it!
At the start of this movie, Peter parker (Tobey Maguire) seems to have it all… great life, great girlfriend and everything fun. He have been walking around town trying to find a perfect ring to propose to Mary Jane. He then went and visit his Aunt May (Rosemary Harris) to ask for blessing and advice. His aunt then tell storys about her and his Uncle Ben. Aunt May kept reminding Peter that he would have to put his wife before himself if he is really ready to get married. Peter is all ready and got his aunt’s blessings.
As for Mary Jane, her big day is yet to arrive. She will be singing for the first time on the Broadway. She was dressed in this beautiful white gown walking down the stairs singing her song. And yes, Peter make it to her show and was quickly mesmerized with Mary’s performance. Harry Osborn (James France) went to see the play too and send a big boquet of flowers to Mary. When Peter tries to walk up to Harry and tries to explained what happen, Harry just ignore him.
Later on, Mary and Peter decided to go to the park nearby on a little date. Peter make a big web on top of a tree whereby the both of them sleeping on the web while looking at the beautiful sky. Suddenly a metoer fly by and crashes nearby. A black liquid form symbiote ooze out from the metoerite and stick on to Peter’s motorcycle when he and Mary is about to leave.
One day, while Peter is going back home, Harry tries to seek revenge on his father’s death. Using his father’s technology, he transform himself as the New Goblin and attacked Peter. The cat and mouse chase lasted for quite sometime till Harry was hurt by his own weapon. He was then sent to nearest hospital.
At first, Peter was worried as he thinks Harry would be angry when he sees him. It was the other way round. Harry suffered from a memory lost and could not really remember what happened recently. To Peter’s surprise, Harry only remeber very old memories whereby he and Peter is still buddies.
Meanwhile, Flint Marko (Thomas Haden) escapes from jail and tries to look for his daughter. He tries to make it up to his sick daughter and promise her he will do anything he can to cure her. He then leaves his house and tries to escape from police chase. While trying to escape, Flint ran in to a research place. It turns out to be a particle experiment and ended up transforming Flint into Sandman who is capable of shape shifting.
While everything else is happening, Peter and Mary start to have problem. Peter is always busy with his “saving the world” job while Mary is upset when the critics claim that her performance on the Broadway was bad. Suddenly, Peter heard someone requesting for help and ran off in the middle of discussion with Mary. When he arrive, a trailer knock into a building where Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard) is modelling. When the trailer hit the building, it caused part of the building to collapse and had Gwen hanging. Of course Spiderman is on time to save her. A new photograher, Eddie Brock Jr. (Topher Grace) was around trying to snap pictures of Spiderman in action, who happens to date Gwen too. Due to Spiderman’s bravery in saving Gwen, a parade is set to honour him.
Peter starts to get obsessed with the attention that he gained. At the parade, he and Gwen kissed on the stage which broke Mary’s heart. In the middle of the parade, Flint attempted to rob a bank. It quickly alerted Spiderman and they both met for the first time and battled. Flint manage to escape. That very night Peter and his aunt was called to the police station. They were being told that the person charged with killing Uncle Ben was not the person they caught. Instead Flint Marko is the one responsible for his uncle’s death. Upon hearing that he is very angry and is waiting for Flint to strike again.
One night, while sleeping, the symbiote bonds with the angry and full of hatred Spiderman’s costume. Noticing the changes in his costume and his powers to turn him into the darker side. However he is quickly loving the new powers that he have. Little does he know the symbiote has slowly change Peter’s personality.
In the meantime, many things seems to happen in Peter’s life. Peter is getting ready to propose to Mary Jane while on his career, he is on a head to head battle with Eddie to get a picture of Spiderman misbehaving. Peter gets a place at a posh restaurant and tries to surprise Mary. However things didn’t work out as planned. To make things worst, Gwen drop by and greeted Peter and they both continue to talk about her kissing Spiderman. This once again make Mary Jane upset and she started to doubt if Peter really loves her enough.
In the midst of confusion, Mary Jane called Harry as she needed some company. Harry suggested for Mary to visit him at home. They both have a great time as Harry tries to cheer her up which ends up with a kiss. Feeling guilty, she quickly ran off. Right after she ran off, Harry starts to regain his memories.
On the other side, Peter finally got his moment when he finally found Flint. He manage to follow Flint to an underground tunnel and battled with him. He then notices Flint’s weakness for water. Flint begs for forgiveness but Peter gave him no chance to explain and simply “wash” him away.
Afftected by symbiote, Peter exposes and insulted Eddie for selling a fake picture of Spiderman. This resulted Eddie to be fired. Eddie did beg Peter to spare him as he needs the job badly, however Peter choose to ignore him.
As for Harry, his hatred for Peter reappears when he regain his memory. He then went and look for Mary and threaten to kill Peter if she refuse to co-operate with him. Mary have no choice but to call Peter out and told him that she wants a break up stating that she have another man. Upset over Mary’s words, Peter seek for Harry’s company. To Peter’s surprise, Harry isn’t there to console him, instead he told Peter he was the other man in Mary’s life.
As Peter left the cafe, Harry turn around and give him a wicked smile. Later that night, Peter went to look for Harry in his mansion. Affected by the symbiote, Peter became very brutal and attacked Harry. He even insulted him. The fight end up in an ungly manner whereby Harry’s face was disfigured.
Ever since the breakup, Peter became a totally different person. He change the way he dress and the way he look. He whistles and flirts with other girls. At one point, Peter even brings Gwen to Mary’s new work place after she have been replaced from the Broadway. He tries to get Mary jealous but ended up fighting in the pub. When mary tries to seperate them, Peter accidently pushed Mary to the floor.
Peter ran off when he starts to notice what he have became. He ended up at the top of the church. Knowing the symbiote black suit have something to do with the changes, he decided to tear the suit apart. However he have difficulties seperating it from his body. Coincidently, Eddie went to the same church praying and wishing for Peter to be dead. As he was praying, he suddenly heard a loud scream.
He notices Peter was on top struggling to get rid of the black suit. Initially he can’t get rid of the suit. With the help of the church bell ring, he manages to rip off the suit. The symbiote then falls down and landed on Eddie’s body. It then takes over Eddie’s body and caused him to be more violent.
Having a new super power, Eddie is set to revenge on Peter for what he had done to him. He then search around town for Flint. He then manage to convince Flint to team up and fight against Peter. The duo take Mary as hostage to lure Spiderman and decides to destroy him.
Peter have no choice and knows he could not defeat the duo. He then seek for Harry’s help. When he saw Harry’s face, he felt guilty and regretted for what he have done. Harry rejected to help Peter as he believe he is held responsible for his father’s death… and now for disfiguring him. After Peter left, Harry’s butler then stood out and explained what actually happen on the day Harry’s father died.
Peter/Spiderman have no choice but to fight Eddie/Venom and Flint/Sandman alone. As he reach to the scene, he notices Mary was stuck in a taxi hanging in a black web located high above the ground. He tries to reach and free Mary but was attacked by Eddie. As he failed and fell down, Flint bashed him over and over again until sudden, Harry appear out of the blues and teams up with Peter to fight against Eddie and Flint.
In the fight process, Harry sacrifice his life to save Peter’s when Eddie tries to use Harry’s glider against them. Right after the glider hit Harry, it hit on some steel bars. The steel bars fell down and created a ring similar to the church bell. Peter then recalled what happened and clang the bars together to weaken the symbiote. Peter tries to seperate the symbiote and Eddie and tries to bomb the symbiote. However, Eddie was too attached and addicted to the power and runs towards the symbiote with causes both Eddie and the symbiote to be bombed into pieces.
After the battle, Flint told Peter that he have no intention for things to get this bad. He then explains to Peter that he initially have no intention to kill Uncle Ben. It was a robbery went wrong and he was desperate to save his daughter’s life. Peter finally understand and forgive Flint.
Peter and Mary then went to look for Harry who is lying on the floor. Before Harry died, he forgive Peter and regarded him as his best buddy in life. The movie then ended with Mary performing in her work place and Peter went to visit her at work, trying to mend things back.
Ah… so many things happening in this movie… so many that my short note on the piece of paper is full. I am serious, for the first time… one piece of paper is not enough to note down the important parts. I personally think this is the worst Spiderman movie. Not like it is super bad or what, just isn’t the best.
I felt the director tries too hard to cover a lot of angels and worst of all… they introduce 2 villian (3 if you include Harry) in one movie which in compare to previous ones. I felt everything was so rushed out in the movie. It’s like someone going from point A to point B. But in between the process of getting there… one get on a bus.. then get down to change bus… and right after getting down the bus… they have to chase after another bus to get aboad. It’s simply tiring and at the end of the day it isn’t an enjoyable process.
I can’t help but to notice that they reuse a few old footage from the previous episodes… especially the ones where Spiderman is hanging from building to building. Right… why I say so? I notice the huge difference in the colour between footages. It is simply more red back then and more bluish this time. Then again, I can’t really confirm is it me… or is it the movie… or is it the cinema as others doesn’t really seems to notice or pay attention to that.
Like I say earlier… the continuity for this show is like LOW. Especially the ending scene whereby Mary is hanging in the air. For a moment she is at the front seat… at some.. she is at the back seat. Not to mention how Venom ripped Spiderman’s mask while they were fighting… and just by turning the angles… Spiderman have a new mask. WOW! Isn’t that just amazing?
I somehow just think it is bad for a long awaited movie to do mistakes like this. I mean… they take 2 years to get this part 3 released compare to others shows that probably take 3 months to complete. Worst of all… in every episode… they just gotta tear Spiderman’s costume. I mean.. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM? I don’t recall his costume torn that many times in the comic.
Sigh… yes, my rating is probably lower than many people you know. I guess I just expects too much from it 🙁
