The Amazing Spiderman 2 movie review
I personally haven't read the comics yet so I can't compare which is more amazing. But who cares, it is entitled "The Amazing Spider-man 2" after all. By the way, STOP reading from here if you haven't watched the movie yet.. some spoilers are awaiting. LOL.
As usual, Spider-man as we all know, has this conflict or struggle between himself as Peter Parker and as Spider-man. With his superhuman strength, speed, stamina, regenerative healing, precognitive spider sense and ability to cling on surfaces, Spider-man is bound to be a hero. Cliche as it is, every hero needs a woman to love.. in this movie, it's Gwen Stacy. She is one smart incoming college student and her father, George Stacy, got killed in one battle involving Spider-man and a villain. Before her dad's death, Spider-man was told to stay away from Gwen in order to keep her away from danger (which I think is one foreshadowing of this tragic movie.. oops! spoiler alert!).
Yes Gwen Stacy (not Gwen Stefani) also did great. Emma Stone portrayed the smart, lover of the said hero. She sure loves him anyways in real life! (Love in the air!!!!!)

Oh by the way, Oscorp Industries appears in this movie and its sequel video game. In order to promote the movie and game, Marvel Entertainment created an official Oscorp Industries website.. I tried searching for it and I found this. I'm not 100% sure but I think this is the site Marvel created LOL! Click >> Oscorp Industries Official Website ..
Well, I told you not to read this when you haven't seen the movie. I'm gonna spoil some facts. To those who haven't read the comics... Gwen Stacy will die!
|Gwen Stacy at the clock tower|
So yeah, that's how it is going to end. Green Goblin fought Spider-man and, well the cliche, a girl has to get in the way. It is struggle for Spidey between eliminating the villain and saving the woman of his life. Originally, this battle scene is supposed to be shot in the Brooklyn bridge.. but in the film, the setting was in a clock tower.
|The part when Gwen Stacy died|
That moment when Spidey was battling with Green Goblin, Gwen Stacy fell. However, Spidey had the chance to save her with his web. Gwen held on but unfortunately, the web cut off and so the slow motion effect went on where Spider-man did his best to save Gwen. Initially, he thought he had saved her, but was crushed to discover that he didn't..
Analysis of Her Death
Well, personally I think, Spidey could have saved her if he released his web earlier. Due to the high velocity of the fall and the neglected air resistance Gwen had a great impact on the ground.. because of the inertia, internal bleeding occured in her head which I think can cause instant death! Spidey should have considered the speed of gravity and the amount of time he had to save Gwen! also he should have considered the yield point of his web and the strain to which the material is to break or deform... (LOL! I learned this in school so I analyzed some stuff here haha) Oh my gosh, too much rants about Gwen's death..
|By the way, Emma Stone wore the same outfit Gwen Stacy had in the comics in her "Death" scene|
Why the Clock Tower?Well, Marc Webb (the Director) did an amazing job in this film. From the effects to the sequence of scenes and its transition, to the setting and make up.. definitely mind-blowing! Also the tragic part when Gwen died in the clock tower was also important. He chose the Clock tower instead of the bridge to make it more dramatic. This just Proves that even a superhero with extraordinary abilities could not stop time..
|Thanks for the productive night guyz LOL|
