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

I really enjoyed this movie
24 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Amazing Spider Man 2 is a movie directed by Marc Webb,Spider man is played by Andrew Garfield who suits perfectly with the role,in my opinion even better than Tobey,although i liked Raimi's trilogy a lot,it was my childhood. I enjoyed how they showed Spider-Man,i mean he is one of the most amazing superheroes,why? Because he is a friendly web-slinger,he might give you a ride,he might buy something to eat for homeless guy. They also added his humor,which i think was kind of missing from Raimi's trilogy,no matter how hard can his private life be,he is always funny. They also concentrated a lot on Peters relationship with Gwen,because as we know from the comics he is a "hard luck charlie" or whatever they call him.Also this is just the beginning ,Webb tried to expand the spidey's universe,we will see smythe who made spider-slayers,Sinister-Six and probably venom. BTW don't miss the scene after the credits,it is amazing and we might even see spidey with X-men! Do not listen to haters,i am pretty sure that most of them haven't even seen the movie,if you love comics then you will probably love this movie. Thanks for reading.
