So over the weekend last week I had the privilege of being able to watch The Amazing Spiderman 2. A brilliant film with many twists and turns and heartbreaking moments.
The Plot follows as such.
Peter Parker continue to fight crime as Spider-Man. He pursues and criminals who attempt to steal a truck containing plutonium vials. During the chase, Spider-Man rescues OsCorp Industries employee Max Dillon. Max idolizes Spider-Man. While tending to some maintenance in an OsCorp laboratory, he loses his balance and falls into a tank of genetically modified electric eels. They attack him, and he mutates into a living electric generator.
After a tense break off with Gwen, Peter’s childhood friend Harry Osborn returns to Manhattan to see his terminally ill father, CEO of OsCorp. Norman explains his illness is hereditary, and Harry is at the age where it first develops. Norman gives Harry a small device he claims contains his life’s work. The next day, Norman dies and Harry is appointed the new OsCorp CEO. He humiliates the OsCorp board, which has been privy to Norman’s secret biogenetic projects for foreign military powers.
Max wanders into Times Square and accidentally causes a blackout. Spider-Man attempts to calm him down, but the police fire at Max, making him lose his temper and attack. Spider-Man eventually stops him, and Max is taken to Ravencroft Institute.
The stage is then set as Harry Osborn searches for the clue to his cure, and Peter must question where he stands as Spiderman, and wether the risks to the ones he loves is worth it?
And what will become of Max/Electro?
Watch and find out 🙂
It was a brilliant film and well worth a watch.
