Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) a.k.a. Spider-Man is going through a difficult patch. Not only does he get publically criticised as Spider-Man despite trying to always do the right thing, he has been thinking about his parents, why they abandoned him when he was just a small boy, why he was brought up by his aunt (Sally Field). Further, he's dwelling on the promise he made to his girlfriend Gwen's (Emma Stone) dying father that he would keep away from her as his role as super hero could put her in harm's way. Now more problems have surfaced. The head of Oscorp (Chris Cooper) has died and left everything to his son, Harry (Dane Dehaan), a friend of Peter's, including the genetic illness that he died from. And as if all that isn't enough, another super being calling himself Electro (Jamie Foxx) has raised his ugly blue head.

Following on from The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Andrew Garfield once again heads an amazing cast of actors in this 140 minute movie which is packed with visual effects. When I say packed, I mean that more than half, perhaps 75% of the movie consists of explosive action scenes, fight scenes, and all the stuff that is supposed to make a movie terribly exciting but, in my case, bores me stiff. I got CGI overdosed as my eyes try to focus on, and determine, what was going on! What with Harry Osborn going weird, Jamie Foxx's character going blue in the face, and to top it all a Rhino-Man-Machine-Wotsit thumping down the high street, I was really glad when it all ended.

What I can say positively about it is that it has an amazing cast of actors and I was only sorry that one of my favourite actors, Oscar-winning Chris Cooper, had a very short role. I hardly noticed that Paul Giamatti was in the movie, not to mention a few other great actors and actresses. Maybe they got lost in the continuous explosions and blurred action scenes. Or maybe I just fell asleep.

I will always think of the original Spider Man 2 movie directed by Sam Raimi as the best, yet this one has several memorable moments, and I think delivers the most shocking and unexpected moment you are likely to see in any Spider Man movie.

I have seen most of the Marvel superhero/ mutant movies. Spider Man's world is mutant driven, it seems someone is always a careless slip away from becoming a mutant or being killed by one. In this case, a weird electric geek gets a little careless above a pool of electric eels, while Harry Osborne seeks the cure for a fatal inherited disease with a blood sample from our web slinging hero.

Meanwhile things get complicated between Spider Man and his girlfriend, it's hard being a superhero balancing your superhero life with your romantic life, when a mutant emergency can call you away at a moment's notice. But our Spidey will always have these dilemmas. If only he did not date someone quite so intelligent, who may be able to get a scholarship to Oxford. Meanwhile, the mystery of what happened to Spidey's own parents continues to trouble him, and why were his fathers studies so dangerous that he had to disappear at a moment's notice leaving little pre Spidey to grow up without a father and troubled by abandonment issues.

If Spidey wanted to give it all up for love, would the mutants give up terrorizing New York City. Not for a New York minute. You see the difficulty, the work of a superhero never ends. Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in. Worse still is when your friends become mutants, with the added risk of suspecting or even guessing your identity, that can put you and your girlfriend Gwen in a whole stew of trouble. These are the dilemmas that occupy our web slinging friend.

Every super hero needs a super villain. This episode introduces us to Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan). If that wasn't enough Peter (Andrew Garfield) must deal with his on again/off again relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and he discovers the truth about his father (Campbell Scott) and Oscorp.

I love these modern superhero blockbuster updates. Rest assure, that is not how Pu-238 is transported...but it makes good cinema.

I will also say I disapprove of the ending, bit I'll get over it. The film contains drama and heart as well as good action scenes. In fact if anything Spiderman was able to take care of his foes a little too easy.

The film sets up for a crazy action sequel. Break out the popcorn.

I really liked the original Amazing Spiderman back in 2012 and liked the first two films in the original trilogy but The Amazing Spiderman 2 is a hard film to like. I thought the Spiderman reboot back in 2012 was well done as the first two Spiderman films killed off 2 of Spiderman’s main nemesis. I liked the way that the Amazing Spiderman allowed for a more expanded storyline despite The Lizard being a very weak villain with an origin story that mirrored The Green Goblins from the first film. Sadly, The Amazing Spiderman 2 has the same problem as The Amazing Spiderman 1 as the main villain Electro is awful. The secondary villain; spoiler alert (it’s not really a spoiler if you have seen the trailers) The Green Goblin is even worse while the third villain isn’t actually a villain; somebody just gave a mobster a robotic suit and he kept shouting out that he was Rhino.

Sometimes a great villain is all that is needed to make a great film and Willem Defoe made Spiderman 2002 awesome. I mean the man stole the show with a brilliantly OTT performance which is exactly how The Green Goblin was meant to be played. Here, the film suffers the same problem as the awful Spiderman 3 in that there are 2 villains taking up too much screen time or not enough. Electros origin story is just awful with no real motivation for the character while The Green Goblin doesn’t have an origin story (the suit seemed to be the nearest thing that Harry Osborn could reach). Yes, Harry is The Green Goblin here and Dane DeHaan is badly out of his depth actually making James Franco’s turn as The Green Goblin seem like it was actually good. He turns bad so quickly that you wonder why they writers didn’t at least give him a little more screen time to explain any of this.
