The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Sonnet Review

the-amazing-spider-man-2-major-spoiler-plot-details-header
Oh Spider that doth fall from out the sky,
Your death-defying leaps make Gwen go faint.
I really loved this film, I’ll tell you why,
It’s mainly because Cap 2 this film ain’t.
Forgive me while I change to sonnet form,
But Marc Webb’s sequel takes things to new heights.
He guarantees to Parker you will warm,
And fear for him when Foxx turns out the lights.
There may be lots of villains but relax,
Harry is the man, DeHaan’s a wonder.
The gang don’t overcrowd to dubstep tracks,
Webb did well to steer from that big blunder.
With Matrix action and the humour nailed,
Part 2 defies the fact it could have failed.

Verdict: 5/5
