Or the scene when the guy leans in and says Hail Hydra.
George St Pierre was int his movie
This movie would have been really cool if i were a teenager.
Spiderman had the BALLS to kill off it's female lead in the 2nd movie. What's Marvel done that's risky? Marvel is for kids. DC will crush them with they get their movies going. Man of Steel alone had Avenger's level threat to Earth LOL
This sums up my thoughts on Spiderman 2: Electric Boogaloo
espite being one of Spider-Manís go-to comic book villains, Electro ends up getting a strangely meek treatment here, and even an actor of Jamie Foxxís caliber canít do much against the tide of effects-driven performance and bad writing.
The major issue with the character is that his motivation to become a villain is so hilariously awful: as Max Dillon, he looks up to Spidey and appears to deeply value an encounter in which the web-slinger saved him. Thus, when he turns into Electro after an improbable accident involving electric eels, he snaps at Spidey just for forgetting his name.
After that, he claims that heís going to cut the power to New York to make the cityís citizens feel just as he did when he worked at Oscorp: powerless. It might just be tough-guy rherotic, but itís unconvincing at best and goofy at worst, making even the frustratingly ever-sympathetic villains of Raimiís Spider-Man movies favourable to this nonsense.
His final showdown with Spidey is easily the characterís highlight, though when he eventually loses to Spidey and disappears into the ether, we feel absolutely nothing.
In a movie thatís already busy doing so much, Webb decided to throw in two additional cameos, presumably to set up the impending Sinister Six movie. The first cameo is by way of Paul Giamattiís hilarious performance as the Rhino, screaming and hamming up a ridiculous Russian accent while briefly tussling with Spidey at both the beginning and the end of the movie.
The second is by Felicity Jones in an also-ran role as Harry Osbornís assistant, Felicia Hardy, who will eventually go onto become Black Cat.
The problem is that unnecessary interludes like this just slow down a movie that already struggles to maintain momentum with its long run-time and high subplot count. Neither character is intimately connected to the central narrative at all, and seemed to be included just for familiarityís sake for when the third film and Sinister Six movie show up.
There is so much more, but I don't have enough time in the world to shred that terrible movie.
