Spider man death and dating review
Usually, in superhero films, our hero has some kind of introductory scene to fully establish what kind of person he is before we even think about starting the origin events in motion.
The Daily Bugle, Harry Osborn, wrestling, the Goblin’s death; it’s all there, woven together into a tapestry of pure Spider-Man. I actually find the pacing of the story to be very interesting.
Props to Willem Dafoe for doing his own stunts, too.
Much of the character’s appearances would be in the action scenes, and he wanted to carry over his evil hamminess to even the combat and flying scenes to make the character more believable than if he were suddenly less campy during action bits. A hero is only as good as the villain, and the Green Goblin delivers.
Harry Osborn (James Franco) James Franco, on the other hand, is an excellent Harry Osborn through and through.
One song can be sad as a dead puppy, and another can be unabashedly heroic. So he decided that they would use as much CGI as they needed, but no shot would be 100% CGI.
And that level of musical emotion elevates webslinging into something beautiful. It turns a man talking to himself into a terrifying, tragic descent into madness. Because of that, a lot of the CGI effects hold up better than they otherwise would, too.
A lot of people dislike origin stories, and I think part of that is because we’re spending so much time getting to know the “Before” picture. But Peter gets bitten by that spider less than five minutes after seeing him for the first time, which I think contributes to the film’s brisk pace. It doesn’t have to be constant action all the time. Themes With great power comes great responsibility.
And a lot of the film’s themes come from that idea. But what they choose to do with that power is what defines them and sets them in opposition to each other.
