Following the events of the previous installment, Peter Parker has now embraced his identity as Spider-Man and is learning to live a double life. All that could change when a new villain is born, putting both he and the ones he loves in grave danger... I seemed to be in a minority, but I quite liked The Amazing Spider-Man. Garfield is the perfect Peter Parker, just the right amount of nerdy, cheeky and brooding in equal measure; Maguire's Peter was just a touch too serious for my liking. I also like Garfield as Spider-Man for much the same reason - he brings in the witticisms that the comic book character is known for, and I personally enjoy it when superhero movies embrace their slightly campy source material. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 delivers more of the same in this vein; but while I enjoyed the movie overall, I felt it lacked the focus of the first installment, leading to an uneven, slightly haphazard film.

The positives of the series so far are abundant; the chemistry between Garfield and Stone is palpable, and it's easy to see their real-life affection. Hell, it oozes out of them, and it means that you can't help rooting for Gwen Stacy, which only makes the discord between them more frustrating. Stone's Stacy is wonderful; she is, as Peter repeatedly asserts, adorable, but underneath there is a steely core of intelligence, empathy and kindness that render her a worthy super-hero sidekick. I also like the trend of tragic villains the series has so far displayed; even the most despicable behaviour is explained (although never justified) by the sufferings of the characters. This is particularly true in the case of Electro; maybe I'm a sap, but it broke my heart seeing his transformation.

Having the inclusion of three villains in this sequel really had me concerned for the movie, especially seeing that the Goblin was being reintroduced so soon after the Raimi version (I know it's been 12 years, but it's really not that long ago if your at a certain age).

Plus it doesn't really help having the slightly fresh taste of the monstrosity that was Spider- Man 3.

But hey, its a new franchise, with a new spin on the web slinger, and thank heavens that the majority of people who have commented on the poorness of the film are wrong, plain wrong, but all opinions are respected.

The film focuses more on Peter and his demons, coming to terms with his promise that he made to captain Stacy, and the mysterious events that led to his parents murders. And then this seamlessly melds into the prerogatives of the main villain, Osborn, looking like a cross between DiCaprio, Basketball Diaries Era, and Adolf Hitler.

Dehaans Osborn is a more sinister, gloomier version than Franco's Jock like take, and he owns the film when he is on screen. His story is the bulk of the sub plot, and he is fascinating.

Foxx is the weak point here, like a cross between Gus Gorman in Superman III, and the electric gremlin from The New batch. He is nothing more than a stooge for Osborn, but he does garner the greatest set piece in the film.

Garfield and Stone are as wonderful as expected, and his Spider-Man is just like the one from all those great cartoons of the eighties, sarcastic, human, and funny.

The film is a lot darker in tone, than other Marvel movies, and at sometimes, it's very touching, especially during the final showdown with Rhino.

I felt compelled to write a review after seeing so much negativity surrounding TAS-M2. I’m not going to say its perfect because no film will ever please everyone. I urge people to sit, think and perhaps even see a second time TAS-M2 before casting judgements.
There are going to be some spoilers in this film review, so be warned if you don’t want anything to spoil your surprises, read on with caution.
The first thing I think is to think of this film as what it is. It’s the second instalment, we know there will be more. This film is the set up for what continues in following films. This is quite obvious from the villains introduced right at the end and the rumours of the Sinister six. We also know from how it ended that Peter will have difficult emotional turmoil to deal with.

I love how well Andrew Garfield plays the part. Just enough geekiness, with sex appeal and quick whit. I find him far better in the role of Peter Parker, his delivery of material is definitely improved in this film and his comedy elements begin to shine through. I also like his relationship with Gwen and Emma Stone, who plays her is much better in this film than the first. Peter and Gwen have a much better relationship and the focus really sets up for the ending.

Moving on, the main villain is Electro. I think this has to be my top favourite villain of all time. From his back story, to his actions, to the music, the progression of his character really impressed me. Jamie Fox is a legend for playing this character as he changes from the anxiety filled nervous character to the wandering misunderstood electro and then to the hardcore villain that he turns into. The soundtrack and music for him is quite brilliant. I recommend checking out the soundtrack.
