When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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 Harry accesses his father's archive you can see the file names Ravencroft, Dr.Connors, Dr.Morbius, and Venom Storage 7U. Ravencroft is the asylum seen later in this film, Dr. Curt Connors is the Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Dr. Michael Morbius is a Spider-Man villain with vampire-like attributes, and Venom is Spider-man's demented lookalike whose story was filmed in Spider-Man 3 (2007). All these villains were intended to join the "Sinister Six" organization in the ultimately-cancelled third installment of this reboot. See more »
In the opening scene of the movie, Richard Parker emails a video file on his unplugged laptop from a falling airplane to a hidden location far underground New York City. The scene takes place in 2000, when capabilities of sending video files from two remote locations at such speed were not widely developed and close to impossible. 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.

This is what Comic Book Movies are supposed to be like
For starters, let me say that this is not a perfect movie. The first act is rushed, and the plot loosens as the movie progresses. But this is what comic book movies should be like. Fun, action-packed, and believable performances are what make this movie good. It is not trying to be The Dark Knight, which I enjoyed. There are a few darker moments, but the overall feel of the movie is light and fun. That tone is perfect for Spidey movies, and that is where I think Sam Raimi went wrong with his Spider-Man trilogy. He wanted to make a good film, not a good Spider-Man film. Mark Webb is making good Spider-Man films, so critics are not liking it because they view it the same as they would Shawshank Redemption. And fans aren't on board because they want all superhero movies to be "darker". Ask Man Of Steel how that worked out. So just sit back and enjoy a fun ride with beautiful visuals and outstanding acting.
