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. 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 Sony Pictures Entertainment

Trivia

The name of classic Spider-man villain Dr. Kafka suggests Franz Kafka, who wrote the fable Die Verwandlung (The Transformation, usually called The Metamorphosis in English). This story is about a young man completely transformed into an insect. Peter Parker is a young man partially transformed into an arachnid, so the connection is suitable. See more »

Goofs

Gwen reminds Peter to join her family for dim sum at 8 PM in the evening. Dim sum is normally only served in the mornings and at lunch, not as dinner. See more »

Quotes

Richard Parker: People will say I am a monster for what I've done. And maybe they're right. I'd always thought that I'd have more time.

Worth Watching
17 April 2014 | by (Lisboa, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Based on the first movie, i thought this was going to be just another poor Marvel movie, seeking younger audiences.

But i was surprised! I really enjoyed the movie, the characters are well crafted, it has good action scenes, and some unexpected moments that makes the movie worth watching.

I enjoyed a few laughs, and I think the protagonists are better than the prequel.

I really like electro, Jamie Foxx can always do a good part, and this film is no exception. I'm glad since I can't imagine anyone else doing it so well.

Hope the next one will be even better than this,

Go see it, and enjoy!
