(357) IMDb 7/10
Available in HD

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.

This 'Marvel' adventure has certainly generated mixed opinions from reviewers and critic's alike,
myself, i love the visual technology this type of movie brings to the screen.
'New York's' citizens are going to need protection from the villains that are soon to threaten the
city.
'Peter Parker' - 'Spider-man' (Andrew Garfield) finds it difficult being both Hero and giving family
and Girlfriend 'Gwen' (Emma Stone) the time and attention they deserve.
As Spider-man, Peter is soon to face perhaps his most formidable enemy to date, an enemy that
is far more powerful that himself.
Old Friend 'Harry Osborn'(Dane Dehaan) has returned taking over the Osborn Empire 'Oscorp' in
the wake of his fathers death.
'Spider-man's' biggest fan 'Max Dillon' (Jamie Foxx) an electric-wiz has suffered an accident whilst
trying to repair a fault at 'Oscorp' which has given him electronic power he's yet to harness...he has
become 'Electro' 'Spider-Man' tries to help.
Meanwhile 'Harry' who is dying believes blood from Spider-Man could save him, this he is telling to
old friend 'Peter' who promises to try and ask Spider-Man for his help.
Meanwhile at the secret 'Ravencourt' site, owned by 'Oscorp' the operatives are trying to turn 'Max'
into a Weapon to control to do their bidding.
'Harry' hasn't got the control of his fathers company he believes he has, there are those within the
company who have their own agenda of which 'Harry' has no part.
A electronic tablet 'Harry's' father had given him before dying shows secrets of the underground complex,
which will give him access to a serum that had been worked upon.
'Harry' finding himself where 'Max' is being processed releases 'Electro' to catch Spider-Man.

Amazing. This film is visually amazing. This is probably the visually amazing film made to date. However I have to say I enjoyed The Amazing Spider-man more. Yes the visuals are incredible. The acting is also great. The only thing that let this film down for me was that it was too soap oprahish.

The dramatisation between Gwen and Peter was a bit over done for me. Off and on, no and off, again and again for the bulk of the film did get a bit wearing after 2 hours. I also found Peter to almost be suffering from multiple personality disorder, in the first scene he is a confident carefree jock type taunting a Russian mobster while his is running down civilians and sending inhabited cars flying. Then walks into his own graduation late partially dressed, high fives the Dean, and swoops Gwen off her feet kissing her in front of the graduation audience. Then goes back to the shy, neurotic, but caring Peter Parker I know from the comics. Then some of his answers or explanations for his Spider-man activities, make his sound like he was just plain High. I believe Garfield is a great actor I think they should just told one Peter Parker to play instead of three.

The final thing that let me down about this movie was the ending. I am not talking about the part that every comic book fan knew was coming, but I personally hate films finishing in the middle of fights. There is mention of what is next, the Sinister 6, and mystery man , but I would have preferred if they finished off the movie properly. All in all I did like Spider-man's fighting style but I think it did rely too heavily on his webbing, rather that his strength. I would give this movie 3.5 stars but the visuals pushed this to a 4 star for me.

Had quite high hopes for this after the first one, but thought it suffered from trying to fit too much in. The Harry Osbourne storyline in particular felt very rushed and could have been developed over a couple of films. Would have been good to have given Electro a bit more screen time, and tacking the Rhino in at the end was a bit overkill on the villain front. A good effort overall, but just felt there was too much going on, and a lot of the characters and plotlines suffered as a result...

Meh - All the super hero films are, in my opinion, starting to become formulaic and rather predictable and boring. (with the exception of Guardians of the Galaxy) Yes great special effects/action scenes (sort of) but I get 3/4 of the way through and I'm thinking it would hurry up and finish. Nothing new here. When are story writers/directors gong to start being creative/inventive. Maybe in such a high risk industry playing it safe is the norm now.

Okay it's not shocking, but Jamie Foxx does some shocking in it.

Seriously though, if you look at that first Tobey Maguire Spiderman movie which came out, what, 12 years ago? You'll find much better movie in almost every aspect, even the cgi looks more realistic! If this particular installment came out in the late 90's, it would have been much more acceptable and would fit right in for a mediocre, 90's, action movie.

Andrew Garfield as Spiderman is about as good as Electro is as a Supervillain name. And how does that stupid haircut fit in to that (super-shiny) spidey outfit without making his head all lumpy? haha!

Okay, it wasn't complete rubbish, it had some nice looking shots here and there and I would imagine most kids couldn't care less about the poor cgi or storyline, I guess I just expected something with a little more effort put in to it as per most recent Marvel movies. e.g Captain America - The Winter Soldier, which I believe came out around the same time as this, was excellent!
