Movie review: Spiderman Reboot & Vampire hunter

The Amazing Spiderman
A lot of people have been bashing this movie before it even came out. Most of it stem from the fact that most fans of the previous spiderman movie felt that Tobey Mcguire is the quintessential super web hero.
It got the same backlash when Daniel Craig land the role of 007, in Casino Royale, only to get glowing reviews and having it to be the highest grossing James Bond movie ever. In this case, I felt that Andrew Garfield did a better job in the acting department. He oozes angst and dopey coolness with an assured confidence that Tobey didn't not. It is Garfield's chemistry and Emma's that really stood out in this reboot that also gets the thumbs up from me. The fight sequences in this one was good but not as interesting as the second and third installment and nothing new in the story. At the end of the day it is a satisfying superhero movie, nothing spectacular about it.

Abraham Lincoln: The vampire hunter

I love how to mix and mash the story of President Abe Lincoln before he became the President of the United States and that of the story of vampires and how also he fought for slaves during that period. What was clearly lacking in this movie was that the stories in it seems out of focus and seem to is easily compare to a bunny on drugs, hopping around frantically. There was no emotional depth in the characters. They will just have a few chit chats with you and they will be out of there in a minute.
The saving grace of this movie was the out of the box storyline involving history (not accurate one at all) and vampires. What cause this movie to be not great is it's hectic pacing, the lack of depth and story in its characters. So overall, its not a good nor a bad movie.
