The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is almost perfect
5 second plot: Peter is having fun and giving it all he's got. The city is a safer place because he's clocking overtime. Romantically it's not going great. Peter is constantly reminding himself of the promise he made to Gwen's father. Then a first big threat emerges in the form of Electro. He's seriously pissed off at Spider-Man.
5 second review: What an amazing movie for the first 2 hours. Great fun, stunning visuals, fantastic sound effects,... everything in place to put this movie on my top shelf. But then the last 15 minutes kick in... Why not stop at 2 hours? It was perfect. The last 15 mts fuck everything up. It just looks ridiculous and it goes too dark. Suddenly all the fun is gone. Poof.
