ScreenCrush has shared a video that explores and breaks down two similar scenes that make Spider-Man work where The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t. The scene discussed is the bridge fight. This is actually a pretty interesting commentary worth watching and it drives home the fact that Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film is the far superior one.
Spider-Man and the Amazing Spider-Man are two similar–but very different movies. Raimi launched a new era of superhero films, while Amazing Spider-Man struggled to forge a new way forward for the franchise. In Scene Fights we break down two similar scenes, that highlight the successes and failings of each film.
