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

A huge step up from the first film.
24 April 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Although it didn't manage to find its feet until the last act, the amazing Spider-Man 2 is stall a surprisingly good sequel that obliterates the first film. As you can tell I did not enjoy the first film very much I found it a average movie with a horrible villain and a re used narrative. However the second film in the series managed to reassure me that their is stall hope in this franchise. Marc Webb seems to have a better hold on the story he's trying to tell in this film and the relationship between Gwen and Peter is tremendous. Andrew Garfield shows us his acting shops throughout this movie and blows Toby Maguire's portrayal of Peter Parker completely away. However the film with all the amazing things it does stall has some flaws. The villain's such as electro and rhino are very cheesy and unconvincingly acted which is very strange due to the actors who are very skilled that portray them. But Dane Dehaan as Harry Osbourne does a brilliant job reassuring his acting ability in Hollywood as he brings a memorable performance to his character. The film also sets up future movies and spinoffs perfectly with a large amount of Easter eggs scattered throughout. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a much better film then the first amazing Spider-Man and packs a huge emotional punch however a stilted narrative and a few wooden characters hold it back from its true potential. Hopefully future spidey films in this universe will solidify Spider-Man as one of the greats.
