Spyder movie review: Director AR Murguadoss introduces us to Sudalai (SJ Suryah) with a brutal crime that happens under Shiva's (Mahesh Babu) watch. Murguadoss's main protagonist and antagonist and the conflict between them look inspired from filmmaker Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.
On the whole, Spyder is a decent action thriller which has some very interesting moments. Mahesh Babu’s rocking performance and Surya’s menacing act will surely impress you. But as the film has a routine and serious storyline, the class audience will lap it up but the mass audience might find it a bit difficult to digest. Also, the climax is weak and hurried up. If you are okay with the above-said things, then Spyder will entertain you this weekend.
On one hand is a man, who by circumstance of birth or due to destiny, turns into a monster who thrives by creating fear and causing death. On the other hand, is an honest man whose sole purpose in life is helping strangers and fighting evil for the larger good. When two such personalities clash, which one will emerge winner?
The spy thriller takes unconvincing liberties in the second half. A tragedy of epic proportions is sought to be reduced into a hero vs villain rivalry without a compelling narrative. Mahesh's studied acting prowess is remarkable. He drives the film, ably assisted by the technical departments.
