The trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” just popped up, and it feels – and sounds – like a Michael Bay Transformers film. So many cars flying about, so many explosions!
This must be what happens when a director being given too much money is combined with rebooting a property too soon: You have action that’s so frenetic that you can barely follow it, and an origin story that seems to exist only to differentiate it from – and I don’t believe I am saying this since I wasn’t a huge fan – Sam Raimi’s far superior films.
This means we get a Rhino battle suit (Huh?) and a needlessly complex origin story.
