When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict 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 his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Written by

Well, what can I say? It was a little bit disappointing. The first 20 minutes are really awesome, the 3D conversion is pretty good. But, of 140 minutes of movie, only just 40 or 50 are of Spiderman saving New York, and doing some great stuff. The rest, it's only romance, and sub-plots. And it gets to annoy. At least, Raimi's trilogy had some New York aerial shots. In this movie, almost everything is CGI. The fights are good, but, too short. And,in some shots, the CGI looks extremely FAKE. It's good, but not that good. It's not epic, and it's absolutely forgettable. Yes, I admit it take my breath in some shots. I'm not saying that Raimi's trilogy it's best, but the every fight with Dr. Octopus is Spider-man 2 it's just... epic. I like the visual style of Marc Webb, it's like a comic book. And for that, I can forgive him. After all, it's not his fault, it's the writers fault. The screenplay has some holes in it, and they never explain them in the whole movie.
