A ruthless mercenary renounces violence after learning his soul is bound for hell. When a young girl is kidnapped and her family slain by a sorcerer's murderous cult, he is forced to fight and seek his redemption slaying evil.
Michael J. Bassett
Max von Sydow,
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

A fantastic film filled with laughs, heartbreak and a serious tone all in 2hrs and 20mins
This truly is one of the greatest superhero movies ever made.
The movie is drastically better than the first in the series and is the perfect balance of humour and action. As a major fan of all superhero movies I was let down by the first Amazing Spiderman but this movie definitely more than makes up for it.
The acting is top notch and has one of the best soundtracks in any movie to date.
The film has laughs, heartbreak and a serious tone all within the 2hrs and 20mins. The CGI is also some of the best I have ever seen in any movie.
I cannot stress how good this movie is for any fan of superhero movies and also newcomers to the series.
Do yourselves a favour and see this movie.
