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

(at around 11 mins) When on the phone with Gwen while running late for his graduation, Spider-Man tells her his rapidly changing location is "First and Broadway, Second and Broadway, Third and Broadway." In Manhattan, Broadway does not intersect with First or Second Street. 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.

First off, I'd like to say that I really did not like the first Amazing Spider-Man, so my expectations were really low coming in to part 2. I was pleasantly surprised by it though. This movie has action, comedy and drama in a perfect balance. I was worried that there would be too many bad guys in this movie, but they did it just right. If I had one complaint, it would be that Harry Osborne's transition to the Green Goblin could have been done differently, it felt a bit rushed to me, but the rest of the movie makes up for it. Another highlight for me was the soundtrack and score of the movie. The music when Electro is in Times Square is amazingly well done.
Overall I liked this movie a lot because it really felt like the Spider-Man I knew from the comics.
There was a mid credits scene of the X-Men: Days of Future Past movie, but I really didn't like that scene.
