Spiderman 4 Review

Get ready for one of the most exciting movies of the year — both the action and love story are second to none!

One of the most buzzed-about films of summer is The Amazing Spider-Man, featuring red-hot stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. HollywoodLife.com got a chance to see this highly-anticipated reboot  at a special screening hosted by The Wall Street Journal and The Peggy Siegal Company. It’s anchored by the real-life lovers, who definitely add some much-needed starpower to the fading franchise. It’s as fun and epic a superhero movie as The Avengers! Check out five reasons we LOVED this action-packed flick!

1) Andrew and Emma are great stars!

We just love the chemistry between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. It’s so pleasant to chill out and enjoy two attractive people deliver witty banter for two hours!

2) The Lizard is a great villain!

Rhys Ifans is so much fun as mad scientist Dr. Curt Connors, and the visual effects which transform him into The Lizard are so great. His leathery skin especially pops in 3D — it’s some of the best CGI of the year!

3) The action is breezy and fun!

The Amazing Spider-Man plays as a live-action cartoon, which is pretty perfect for a comic book adaptation. It never gets dark and gloomy, preferring to keep the thrills in interesting environments like the sewers and a high school. It even delivers an eye-popping bridge battle!

4) The supporting cast is amazing!

Between Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary, the adults are played by strong actors who give warm performances. It gives the movie plenty of heart!

5) It’s a true crowd-pleaser!

If you’re spending the holiday with friends and family, everyone will think Spider-Man is a great pick. After all, you can’t exactly take your nieces and nephews to go see Magic Mike!

After the premiere, A-list guests headed to the after party at Lilium, located inside the W Union Square, and the swanky soiree was sponsored by The Gerber Group.

Will YOU go see The Amazing Spider-Man when it opens on July 3, HollywoodLifers?
