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

Trivia

The first Spider-Man film to not be released the same year as a Bourne film. This pattern began in 2002 with the release of both Spider-Man (2002) and The Bourne Identity (2002). Then, Spider-Man 2 (2004) and The Bourne Supremacy (2004) were released in 2004. In 2007, Spider-Man 3 (2007) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) were released to conclude both series's trilogies. Even more interesting, their reboots, The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Bourne Legacy (2012) were both released in 2012. See more »

The film drags on and on
1 May 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of Peter Parker having to struggle between his love life, his quest for what happened to his parents, and saving New York city from crime.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" spends so much time on emotional elements, developing relationships with Gwen, the aunt and even Harry Osborn. The result is that it spends literally hours on cumbersome dialogs, and there is hardly any action. When I watch a summer blockbuster, I expect lots of action and thrills. In "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" there is almost none of that. There are only two battle scenes, and believe it or not, I was yawning even in the middle of the supposed final epic showdown.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is just far too long. The numerous subplots that is supposed to enhance its credibility backfire big time, making the film dragging on and on. I remember liking the previous man a lot, but this sequel is very disappointing.
