Samuel L. Jackson,
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

Felicity Jones's role was significantly cut down due to time constraints. In an interview, Jones stated that she would be an ally to Harry Osborn/Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and at one point, even let it slip that she was playing "the Goblin's girlfriend". Though a small scene showing her alliance to Harry was in the final cut, scenes that implied that there were romantic feelings between the two characters were cut from the film. See more »

The Amazing Spider Man 2 continues the story of the franchise, as Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) continues to be the iconic marvel hero. Although promising to tear his relationship apart with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) to her father, Peter and her continues to see each other, as Spider Man keeps being the hero of New York City. Meanwhile, a new villain appears, Electro (Jamie Foxx) an ex-employee of Oscorp Corp. accidentally turned into a blue skinned person with electric powers, that seeks revenge from Spider Man. At the same time another super villain assembles, Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), previously Harry Osborn, the owner of Oscop Corp., that turned himself to overcome a degenerative disease and also for defeating the protagonist. Differently from the previous movie, The Amazing Spider Man 2 had more special effects, more complex action scenes and more differentiated soundtrack, as Electro's electric powers requires this developments to be better represented compared to Lizard's powers. Even being an outstanding movie, in a technical way, what contributed to this movie not being as good as the first one in a general way was the fact of having two villains. In the limited time of two and a half hours was not possible to both of these very differently characters have the necessary development to the public understand or create some connection with them. Most of the time some more detailed explanations would be necessary, as for instance detailing more how the power of the villain works, or how the studies of Richard Parker, Peter's deceased father, were developed and connected to Spider-Man's fate or introducing some flash backs of how Peter and Harry met and became friends. Furthermore, Amazing Spider Man 2, even though not being another master piece of Marvel productions, is an spectacular action and visual movie, enjoyable to the hole public, but just only if character development or the plot quality is not your priority.
