Andrew Garfield gets a bad rap for his portrayal of Peter Parker
on January 20, 2018
Andrew Garfield gets a bad rap for his portrayal of Peter Parker. I think his take on Parker is a nice dichotomy from Toby McGuire's much beloved version. The movie is good, and Jamie Foxx is "electric" as Electro. His take on Sparky makes a sometimes comical villain in Spidey's Rogues Gallery into a credible and dangerous threat. I think the rush to bring in Green Goblin took away from Electro's time to shine and was not as menacing as Willam Defoe's Norman Osborn version. Other comic stories that the pushed through that I won't mention because of Spoilers, were premature and didn't really let the story unfold as naturally as it could have. The set up for a potential Sinister Six movie was very evident and the movie may have been good but I guess we'll never know.
