Don't read if you have not seen the movie!!!
So I recently watched The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it was an awesome movie! It had its faults and wasn't the best I've ever seen but I enjoyed it alot more than the first film and it was 10x better than the God awful 3rd Sam Raimi film!
One of the things the film excelled on was the inevitable! The death of Gwen Stacy! Although I would of much more preferred it if it was left until the 3rd film (I feel it was to soon) it was handled very well! first let me tell you how it went down...............
*SPOILER* In the final battle between Spidey and Goblin (Electro is already "dead" )Goblin is in the air on his glider and has Gwen and he lets Gwen go...she falls but is caught by Spidey and they crash through the clock tower (as shown in the trailer) and they lnd on a walkway,then Gobey lets off one of his mini bombs and Gwen falls but is put down on a big clock cog and as Spidey and Gobey fight, Goblin is knocked of his glider and it crashes next to Gwen,but Spidey manages to save her with a web,she is hanging on to the web and Spidey is holding off Goblin while trying to stop the clock cogs from cutting the web.. he unfortunately isnt able to and the web is cut (Gobey gets thrown and knocked unconscious) so as Gwen is falling along with all the clock parts around her Spidey jumps to save her but is to far away and shoots his web (which looks like the form of a hand) to try and save her (most of it is in slow motion) the web reaches her but its to late, as it sticks to her her head hits the ground and you can hear a slight cracking sound affect...so I'm guessing the force of her head hitting the ground killed her but she could of also snapped her neck seeing as when the web reaches her it pulls her up slightly and her body contorts backwards and as she is dangling from the web her body is very arched....there's no blood or anything but it was a bit cringeworthy and quite sad , especially Peter's reaction...
The one downside I would have to say was the music.....it was sad and all but seeing as it was Hans Zimmer I was expecting to be wowed! but I felt bored by it..... I wanted to be teary eyed, seeing as she is such an integral character, while violins etc played but while it was sad it didn't make me get teary at all! I mean it was GWEN STACY!!! The saddest death in comic history!!!! Other than that the scene was very well done
Other things I didn't like~
*Rhino only appears very briefly at the end of the film and is more of a comic relief character than the comic version
*Felicia Hardy (Black Cat) her cameo was so small and unnecessary
*Wasn't a fan of Harry Osborns Goblin
*Electro was the main villain (subtitle of the film being Rise Of Electro) and yet he was destroyed so easily, although he's electricity and therefore is probably still alive
*Harry is just knocked unconscious, and that's that
*There was no end credit scene (in the version I watched anyway) which was a let down.
