His Greatest Battle Begins



Awesome 3D effects in the best on-screen Spiderman film with amazing, breathtaking action sequences and fight scenes.

Get ready for high-octane action sequences and mind-blowing fight scenes, and rightly claimed in the film publicity with the announcements “HIS GREATEST BATTLE BEGINS”.

Andrew Garfield, returns to the role of Peter Parker after launching a new chapter in the hero’s story in 2012 with The Amazing Spider-Man.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But now, Peter finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.

As always, Peter Parker is trying to balance being a young man, a boyfriend, and a superhero – he’s trying to make it all work. He thinks he can have it all. But life is about having to make choices and compromises. Once he puts on the suit, it’s a massive release. He can breathe. Spider-Man always knows the right thing to do – he’s a vessel for good, heroic energy and saving people. He takes joy and pleasure in it, and a playfulness comes out of him.

Here is a boy who tries to balance Spidey responsibilities and life as a normal guy. His character is such who cannot hold on to a regular job, is short of cash, gets exploited by the editor of Daily Bugle.

Peter’s vow to keep his fellow New Yorkers safe will lead him right into the heart of the most powerful and important company in New York: Oscorp. The company that once employed Peter’s father and played a role in his parents’ disappearance now seems to be behind new enemies that are emerging, all of whom have advanced technology and powers.

The stakes are higher for Spider-Man (and Peter) because he is facing enemies
that have joined forces against him – all with some connection to Oscorp – and Peter, because the choices he makes and the promises he tries to keep have real consequences.

Being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

Oscorp was built for a single purpose – to preserve Norman Osborn’s life, who has a terrible disease, and the wealth of the company has been used to create the company’s Special Projects division – crazy solutions to a very simple problem.

But Norman Osborn is not an ethical man, and in Special Projects there exist a lot of hidden, dark, nasty things that the rest of us do not want to see unleashed on the world.

Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the Green Goblin – two of the enemies that Spider-Man will take on the wall-crawler, but in some ways, they consider themselves fighting a different enemy. You’ve got two guys, one who hates Spider-Man, and one who hates Peter Parker. They want to kill the same person, but for different reasons. That’s why the two of them team up – they are driven by their emotions.

Though Peter promised Gwen’s dying father that he would protect Gwen by staying away from her, it’s clear that the two share a romantic bond deeper than any promise. The chemistry between Gwen and Spiderman feels fantastic.

One could have expected more screen presence of the Super-villain Trio – Electro, Green Goblin and Rhino. Especially that of Electro, the main antagonist whose character development falls short. And the same about Green Goblin and Rhino. The Bollywood audience is left expecting more of action and intense battle between Spiderman and them.

Towards the end, there is an emotional moment between the kid and Spiderman. Brilliant one that was. Really touching. The best on-screen Spidey display till date. The electro-soundtrack combo is superb, fantastic and mind-blowing.
