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

The kid that Spider-Man saves from bullies and meets again at the end of the film is called the same name Jorge because the child actor, Jorge Vega, has difficulty in responding to instructions with other names. See more »
When Spider-Man talks to Max after saving him, he holds up his left hand and says, "Lick that!" In the next shot, he is holding up his right hand and his left hand is on Max's shoulder. See more »
That must be pretty cool, huh? To have the world see you like this - the amazing Spider-Man! I wish I was like him.

I just came back from seeing The Amazing Spiderman 2.... Wow. I was really disappointed.
I can't say I went in to the theater with high hopes. I did enjoy the first installment of this unnecessary reboot, almost anything seemed like a step up from "Spiderman 3", and Garfield felt way more natural than Maguire, and Emma Stone is always welcome. But after seeing the first trailer I thought it seemed like a total mess, and I wasn't convinced by Electro one bit.
It was all over the place. After seeing this I can understand why Andrew Garfield wants to leave after the next installment. This train is going down and he wants to get off before he becomes a casualty. Sheesh!
The pacing is uneven, and the villain origins are rushed, and hence lose their believability even in the fictional comic-book universe of the movie. It's poor writing, once again the story seems rushed and choppy at times, basically cheesy at times.
From untrained eye there's a lot of loop holes and rhino was a waste and trailers shows we going to see rhino vs spiderman in 2 or 3 battles. False advertisement. plus there was a few cut scenes that were shown in trailers is the reason this movie. It shouldve let it be all about electro.
Not even picking on the poorly designed rhino or the nerdy electro being all fanboy over Spider-Man even talking to himself to a spidey picture. The movie was just said and a major let down and nowhere near epic like Captain America 2.
I prefer well written and executed characters over flashy characters any day,
I don't blame the actors for this mess. The blame for this rests squarely on the shoulders of Marc Webb and the writers! Just give the cinematic rights to the character back to MARVEL/Disney productions! Clearly you don't know what to do with him!!
