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

The best in the Spider Man series even though its flawed and rushed.
21 September 2014 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Let me say that I'm a huge Spider Man fan ever since I saw the original Sam Raimi trilogy and I love the early series but when I learned that there were issues in the early film series I lost interest and I never watched any of Sam Raimi's Spider Man trilogy again after learning about its issues. But when I heard they were rebooting it with a new director and casts along with the same production team returning to make a brand new Spider Man film I was super excited. When I saw the 2012 reboot I was surprised and I started to like the series again. Now this year when I watched The Amazing Spider Man 2 the series seem to get better and better while Raimi's films are extremely flawed forever. Marc Webb's reboot films is making good progress. I remember being at the exclusive premiere of this film in IMAX back in April 30 me and my sister hit the exclusive late screening of the film which is at 11:55 pm to 2:00 am in the morning and when we watched it I was super amazed with it and I so love the new Spider Man film its even better than the previous films because this film like Spider Man 3 because the film has too many characters from the comic books where as Spider Man 3 failed due to the presence of too many characters from the comics and less screen time for the villains like Venom who was 2 or 3 minutes only in the film The Amazing Spider Man 2 worked a lot more even though there are way too many characters from the comics it managed to stay in the proper direction in terms of character development and introducing new characters even though this movie is way too rushed than Spider Man 3 because when we get to see a bunch of new characters Marc Webb seriously handled everything very well unlike Raimi who seriously worked way too hard and failed when the third Spider Man film was released Webb did a slightly better job than how Raimi worked on his films. One of the film's main highlights of course is the chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and it gives the movie a very good feel something the Sam Raimi's films failed to do and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone's chemistry will always be better than Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst's chemistry in the early films also the new villain Electro is amazing and the design of Electro is superb and it is way better than the Lizard's design in the first film. Plus one of the other film's highlights is the CGI and special effects which is always the highlight of the Spider Man films even in the Sam Raimi trilogy(The Sandman special effects are my personal favorite in the early films)but I love the special effects here way better and I would say that The Amazing Spider Man 2 has the best special effects in the series since Spider Man 2 and 3. OK it maybe rushed and flawed but they are easy to forget once you see the movie's highlights which are extremely unstoppable in the film and will keep you glued to the screen until the end and while we did see a couple of characters that we've seen before like the Osborn family what's great about reintroducing the early characters from the early films is that they are not only portrayed by new actors who give a stunning and amazing plus mesmerizing performance but I love how they are given a darker back story than in the early films. Overall The Amazing Spider Man 2 is a great sequel to the 2012 reboot and is a major improvement also to its predecessor in terms of character development, special effects, designs and stunning visuals and this is where the series get to expand where we are introduced to a lot of new characters and learn a lot more about the characters and I'm hoping that The Amazing Spider Man 3 and the spin offs will expand the Spider Man universe a bit more and have bigger and better fights.
