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

People need to understand the story better
26 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

The movie was one of the best Spider-man movies that I have every seen. The special/visual effects were amazing. The chemistry between the main cast was very good. Particularly the relationship with Gwen and Peter. The movie sometimes would have moments in which you knew Sony executives put there noses into like the plane scene. Also there was a lot of set up for the Sinister Six movie. Andrew Garfield is the best as Peter Parker. Sony should not change him. Mark Webb should have added more first person scenes as seen in the The Amazing Spider-man Trailer and movie. Anybody who is a Spider-Man fan or loves to watch action, adventure or comedy films should check this out. 5/5
