Storyline

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 (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). 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 (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Directed by Marc Webb. Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner. Screen... Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Trivia

When asked whether or not Gwen Stacy would survive in this film, Marc Webb commented: "There are times where we feel obligated to follow the source material, and there are times where we feel the need to deviate from it, and besides, Emma Stone is a very talented actress, and we like having her around."

Goofs

In the first battle scene with Electro, and the also the battle scene at the end with The Rhino, there are steel police barricades set up to prevent the citizens from getting in front of harms way. With the possible exception of a parade or funeral that was scheduled to go down those streets, then there would have been no reason for those barricades to be there, as those villains showed up unexpectedly.

Absolutely incredible!
17 April 2014 | by (West Midlands, England) – See all my reviews

First things first, this is my first review but I just had to put my thoughts across as I think this film is well, amazing. OK so I've been a fan of Spider-Man comic books, TV shows, movies, games, whatever for years now. Spider-Man (2002) is one of my all-time favourite films, and after seeing it yesterday, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is up there as well. I went into the movie with high hopes after thoroughly enjoying The Amazing Spider-Man, but I was utterly blown away. I'm not really a fan of 3D but I watched it in 3D anyway, and I was pleasantly surprised as it was fantastic. The use of slow motion and 3D in the fight scenes were spectacular and among the most beautiful and well choreographed I have ever seen. The use of close-ups and point-of-view camera angles on Spidey swinging through the city (which were among my favourite things in ASM) led to you feeling more immersed in the action. I could go on forever so I'll move on. As for the story, I felt it was great. The character developments were interesting.The Peter & Gwen relationship is great. Andrew & Emma have such great chemistry, I never really liked MJ or Gwen in the original trilogy but Emma Stone is awesome. There were also little hints as to possible characters appearing in future installments. They were subtle yet very intriguing (I won't name names). This acknowledgement of characters in this Spider-Man universe is especially interesting with a 'Sinister Six' spin-off in the works. Like a few others, I was apprehensive at first when Andrew Garfield stepped into the red and blue suit but he is great, and after this movie, he has perfectly embodied the role. The one thing that he did perfectly in this movie was the wise-cracking quips. Every time spidey cracked a joke, the whole audience laughed, which what I found myself doing when reading the comics. Just go and see it. I know I'll be buying it as soon as it comes out! Everything a Spider fan wants, and everything a Spider-Man movie should be. 10/10
