Marc Webb tried his full to provide the audience with romance. But this is Spider-Man. He's a superhero. The one thing you shouldn't do is focus way too much on the romance and leave the mega-action aside (and I honestly consider this an apt comment). The soundtracks were much, much, much better than the first movie, but what this movie lacks what the first one didn't is an AMAZING battle and the end (or in the middle, just give us some action). Even Spider-Man 3 didn't fail to do that, and that's why I prefer it more. The things that I didn't like were: 1. Spider-Man changed his costume, and for no apparent reason. 2. Just like the previous one, many of the scenes shown in trailer are not put in the movie (e.g, Oscorp has put you under surveillance, etc.). 3. After the movie ends with a high note, an un-intriguing tune (like the one from the old superman movies) is played. God, I hated that. 4. Please stop torturing the audience with the truth about Peter's parents, because that's not why people watch superhero movies. 5. Peter breaks up with Gwen, then makes up with Gwen, then breaks up with Gwen, then makes up with Gwen, and ultimately, she dies. Yes, the movie is good with the unexpected scenes and all that... but if you're going to make more Spidey movies like this in the series, better rename them to "The Not-so-Amazing Spider-Man".
And one more thing, which I must say, is that the reason Sony rebooted the Raimi movies was because HE COULDN'T MEET THE ENDS BECAUSE OF THE DEADLINE GIVEN (FYI, He was given just two years). He asked for a year more but was not given. Succumbing to pressure (because he had to make a final Spider-Man movie after the forced Spidey 3 movie, which would've been, how do I put this... oh yeah, AMAZING!) , Raimi gave up, because he didn't want to make just a movie in such a little time. He wanted to do much more than that. Now that The Amazing Spider-Man series has made the web crawler SUFFER when it comes to box office records, guess what, they have been given time to think, and the NEXT SPIDEY MOVIE WON'T BE RELEASED TILL THE SUMMER OF 2018! (And for your calculation, that's 4 years!)
