The latest Spiderman is a pretty straightforward movie with no sub texts or too many emotional overtones to it. Boy becomes Spiderman and fights bad men and then an evil giant lizard. Along the way he also falls in love with girl in High school and they exchange sweet kisses.
Andrew Garfield plays Spidey with a touch of humour. He is nerdy but cute. Emma Stone is pretty. The giant lizard is well a giant lizard. And yes, there is Irrfan Khan playing a teenie weenie role in a American accent. Amusing..
The 3D is great. Of late, I have started enjoying the 3D effects Maybe because the glasses that they provide in PVR are lighter and easier to wear. Also, they dont make the screen appear too dark. So you keep the glasses on throughout the movie and swerve sideways when Spiderman swings towards you. Good fun.
Take the kids and go enjoy a simple caper with no hidden agendas but to entertain.
