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

The theme from Spider-Man (1967) is played repeatedly as Peter's cell phone ringtone, and Spider-Man also whistles the theme when stripping Aleksei Systevich. See more »
(at around 13 mins) During the opening chase when Spidey hangs the last container of plutonium from a lamppost with his webbing, Aleksei easily grabs it, breaking the web. When Spidey immobilizes him by webbing his hands, he can't break the webbing. This is because he used only just enough strength of webbing to hold the weight of the container. 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.

Superheroes are heroic because they feel a moral obligation to help the average Joe. Not this Spider-Man. All the characters struggle against the system that has perpetuated falsehoods. The main characteristic of the film is the gloomy atmosphere, emphasizing the desolate hopelessness. The cinematography is stark and bare, with only the soundtrack adding some effect. The acting is very effective. From an artistic standpoint, there were some plot elements and character developments I didn't think were totally needed. They do however drive the story, which seemed to be their purpose, so I can accept them. But it's a two-hour pile of destructive self-obsession.
