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 (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 Sony Pictures Entertainment

Amazing-ish
17 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is certainly a special film, consisting of magnificent action, spectacular special-effects and amazing performances from the likes of Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan, oh, and there certainly is a superior story.

I am one who believes Andrew Garfield is a better Spider-Man compared to Tobey Maguire and this film secured my thoughts. Jamie Foxx was a commendable Electro, Emma Stone was the beyond average love interest, but the star of the show was Dane DeHaan's flawless Harry Osborn. All these actors and many more showed the emotional depth the characters needed and embodied the personalities from the comics perfectly.

The script and story was the same old Spider-Man formula, only it was told in such a compelling way that it was a film of its own. My only problem with the script refers to Paul Giamatti, whose dialogue felt a bit flat. The pacing of the film was a bit iffy, as if the start was rushed, but it found a suitable speed half-way through.

The visuals were flawless, maybe a front-runner for this years VFX Academy Award. It created such a vibrant picture, introducing epic eye- candy.

I was not fond of James Horner's score for the first Spidey reboot, but Hans Zimmer, he is the king of film composing. The soundtrack was phenomenal and creates a perfect image of Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a nice, visual blockbuster, but had a few issues, so I give it a 7.5/10, behind Spider-Man 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man.
