Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he emerges whenever he loses his temper. However, Banner then must fight a soldier who unleashes himself as a threat stronger than he.
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

Better and more entertaining than the previous Spider-Man Movies
One of the harshest critics of this movie said that "nearly everything exists only to advance the plot." I found myself wondering what he thinks should have filled that time instead. The movie did cover a lot of territory, so it was necessary to spend less time on some things than others in order not to be overly long.
I found this movie immensely entertaining and often truly humorous, especially Peter Parker's dialog which was in my opinion very well written and well acted.
I feel that only the most jaded and demanding of critics would be hard on this movie, and only because virtually nothing would be good enough for their personal standards of perfection. For everyone else, this is a very good movie, my favorite so far of the Spider-Man movies.
