The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-Ray Review

3 September 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a summer packed to the gills with superhero blockbusters, one that landed with less grace than a rampaging man in a rhino suit was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Critics tore into the flick, deriding it for a muddled story, inconsistent character development and, most pressingly, too many damn villains.

And you know what? All of those complaints are reasonable. The movie isn’t perfect – it definitely isn’t amazing. However, after watching it, I have to say, all the Spidey hate seems a little bit overkill. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn’t up there with The Dark Knight as one of the great superhero sequels, but it’s also not trying to be. This installment is all about setting up the Spider-Man universe for future adventures and setting Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) on a path towards becoming the hero he’s destined to be. And in that respect, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 »

4 August 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just hours after the first 10 minutes were released from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, ahead of the Digital HD release on August 5, Sony Pictures Entertainment has debuted a featurette that takes fans behind-the-scenes of the sequence known as the "Spidey Sense Scene." Visual effects supervisor Jerome Chen explains that, during Spider-Man's (Andrew Garfield) Times Square battle with Electro (Jamie Foxx), director Marc Webb wanted to show a "frozen moment in time" where Spider-Man figures out how to save 40 people from being electrocuted. Go behind-the-scenes to check out how this elaborate sequence was executed, before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuts on Digital HD August 5 and on Blu-ray and DVD August 19.

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. »

Blu-ray, 3D, DVD Release: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

18 June 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Digital Release Date: Aug. 5, 2014, Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Aug. 19, 2014

Price: DVD $30.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $40.99, Blu-ray 3D Combo $45.99

Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Jamie Foxx (White House Down) and Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) join the movie franchise in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Foxx and DaHaan play villains Max Dillon/Electro and Harry Osborn/Green Goblin, respectively, a pair who make Spider-Man’s (Andrew Garfield, The Social Network) life very difficult as he tries to balance protecting his fellow New Yorkers and spending time with girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone).

Campbell Scott (Handsome Harry) and Sally Field (Lincoln) return as Peter Parker’s father and Aunt May, respectively, but the cast also welcomes Paul Giamatti (Barney’s Version) and Felicity Jones (The Invisible Woman).

Directed by Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer), who also helmed the first Spider-Man reboot, the PG-13 science-fiction film wasn’t quite received as warmly as the first by critics and moviegoers. »

At the end of director Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man movie, a mysterious figure confronts the imprisoned Dr. Curt Connors and asks, “Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?” But for the sequel, fans were left with a somewhat random promotional clip for Fox’s most recent X-Men movie.
