Samuel L. Jackson,
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

When James Cameron tried to make a Spider-Man movie in the 1990s, he was going to make Electro the main villain. But his version of Electro was going to be totally different from the comics. Instead of Electro being Max Dillon who got his powers from fixing a power line in the middle of a thunderstorm, this version instead would be a billionaire criminal named Carlton Strand who got his powers from getting struck by lightning from an electricity generating device.

It is extremely unlikely that Peter - who is incredibly intelligent and has invented the web shooters on his own - would have to watch a YouTube video to teach him that batteries can explode if they are overloaded. 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.

A well balanced Spidey-film that displays the true issues in Peter's life!
Spider-man comics and movies aren't just about the hero, but they are about the daily struggles that Peter Parker must confront and balance. In the 2nd Amazing Spider-Man film, Andrew Garfield is back at his game at being that Spider-man who is cocky, ignorant, and full of humor, but yet I am pleased to say that he still has that brilliance to make you fall into the shoes of Peter Parker and make you feel like you are still keeping things together as the world is falling apart around you.
When watching this film you will experience an emotional roller coaster that will have you hoping for the best to come out! Kudos to Marc Webb for balancing the villains and supplying the audience with just enough background story to understand their history AND for keeping that rich love story between Peter & Gwen.
