When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with another super soldier, the black widow, to battle a new threat from old history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
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

When Gwen Stacy asks Peter Parker where he is during the graduation ceremony, and he is riding on the police car, he responds, "1st and Broadway, 2nd and Broadway, Third and Broadway," but downtown Broadway traffic only runs south, so the street numbers decrease. See more »
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.

I thought the first "Amazing" Spider-Man film was extremely tepid, but then again much of that was just re-telling the whole story of Peter's origin all over again, so I thought this one had to be a step up, but boy was I wrong... For starters they cram in three underdeveloped villains, none more so than the Rhino, who literally appears there for about 2 seconds. No seriously, they just cram him into the final five minutes of the film with about 2 seconds of actual combat and as soon as Spider-Man is actually about to land a punch the film immediately ends. I honestly think it should be illegal for them to even include the Rhino in the adverts and poster if he is given this much screen time, under false advertising. Similarly, the Green Goblin is often ranked as the number one villain for Spider-Man in many polls and again was given just one short 3 minute fight with Spidey before being defeated. Electro actually had some development but it actually undermined the characters motives: basically he was a huge Spider-Man fan met him, saw that Spider-Man was on a big TV and decided to try and kill him (no seriously, this is exactly what happened) It was also cringe worthily cheesy during any actual slight sniff of combat: including Spider-Man pulling down a robbers underwear and wearing a firefighter's helmet when stealing a hose to spray Electro There are so many other plot holes and flaws it's best to just list the main ones here or I'll be here all day, so: 1. Electro looks and acts nothing like in the comics (particularly the fact he's a black guy in a hoodie) 2. The Rhino is a robot that appears for 5 seconds 3. Spider-Man has an infinite supply of his webbing 4. Oscorp is literally the most ridiculous company of all time, they almost killed everyone in the city on countless occasions and even mention how they had to get rid of all animal experiments only for Electro to be turned into what he was by some fish (another animal) 6. Harry has no understanding of any medical science whatsoever and is completely oblivious of any possible problems with just injecting himself with a random blood/chemical sample. 7. Gwen acts as if she's already secured a place at uni when all she is doing is being interviewed and then the second the interview is over they send her on a jet to England 8. A mother decides to send her kid to watch a terrorist shoot at police and destroy the city just because he likes to dress up as Spider-Man. Overall, a horrible mess of a very cheesy movie compounded by the 2 seconds of action involving the Rhino. AWFUL!!!
