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

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 »

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.

As part of a cross-promotion with Fox, a clip from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was included in the theatrical release of the film, which played during the credits. Said scene was taken out when the film was released to home video. See more »
A very entertaining and gripping mix between "funny comic book superhero" portrayal and heartwarming, serious emotions. This is by far the best Spiderman movie of the five.
Right from the start you begin to realize how in this movie the action scenes are not executed in a dead-serious end of the world manner like the previous spider-man movies, which made me feel more connected to this movie than the others. This is how spider-man should have always been portrayed, unlike superman or batman. Andrew Garfield delivers the role in a very balanced and well done manner yet again. He had the chance to dive deeper into the role in this movie compared to the previous one. The chemistry between him and Emma stone on screen is one of the best aspects of this movie.
Another thing I enjoyed about this movie were the villains, which surprisingly everyone seemed to dislike. The characters in the movie weren't too much in any way, certainly not as much as in the previous Spiderman 3.
Even tho the movie didn't feel like it was something completely new, and doesn't seem to pull off something unexpected or revolutionary (In regards to film making, not Spiderman story-wise) I still felt like it was one of the most engaging and entertaining movies I have seen in a long time
