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 Peter offers to accompany Gwen to England, he says he might catch Jack the Ripper. This was the premise of a story written for the never-produced 6th season of the Spider-Man (1994) cartoon. See more »
Several times in the movie, when Peter is hallucinating the vision of Captain Stacy right before him, while wearing his Spider-Man mask, the reflection of Captain Stacy is visible in the eyes of the mask. Since Captain Stacy is obviously not there, it wouldn't make sense for him to be visible in the Spider-Man mask lenses. 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.

As part of a cross-promotion with Fox, a clip from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was included in the theatrical release of the film, which played during the credits. Said scene was taken out when the film was released to home video. See more »

I personally thought this was an excellent film. It had a good amount of comedy, truly deep emotions, and brilliant action. A great, cohesive film to lead on from the first one.
The relationship between the two main characters are brilliant, and you can really understand what's going on between them as both actors portray their characters very well.
Also, what I like from these movies are that they are more relative to the Spider-man comic books, compared to the Spider-man Trilogy (and let's be honest, they were terrible.) If you have read the comic books, then you'll understand where I'm coming from when you see this movie.
The only downside/s I feel this movie has is that Jamie Foxx, in my opinion, doesn't really fit his character and I felt that he didn't really have a massive say in the whole film, it was more about the other villain - but what I did like is that having two villains didn't make it feel like there was too much going on; it was very understandable and a pleasurable viewing experience, so the director receives points in my book for his story telling.
This review is really brief as I don't want to sway your opinion on the film before you've watched it, but rather to change your opinion on whether you should watch it, and I believe that you definitely should.
