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

I was wrong, actually this one was pretty good in my opinion.
2 August 2014 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Forget the actual story, almost everything about it, then you might like this. This film doesn't use just some humor to amuse watchers, its damn lot more.

I don't surely like this thing changing the original story with all Marvel things but hey, its great entertaining very well made movie? Little cheesy at times but I didn't got bothered. Nice directing and cgi, actors weren't bad at all, all it was that little thing that I would like to call something like "do not push every stuff in one movie". Anyway it somehow worked well. First I rated this 6/10 after seeing some low-level version, it probably had missing parts and all. When I now watched c001 bluray-version it was totally different.

Even if you don't bare these mainstream films much like I don't, it was excellent movie.

Ending was little weird and all but so they are all :) 8/10 Terrific job!
