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.

Spider-Man is back!

In 2012, 'The Amazing Spider-Man' became an `amazing' success. Everybody warmed to this new version of Spider-Man; and Andrew Garfield put his own take on the wall-crawler and the character of Peter Parker. Even though it wasn't Tobey Maguire anymore, it was still recognisably Spider-Man. It was an inevitable that a sequel would come after the success of `The Amazing Spider-Man' and how right I was.

`The Amazing Spider-Man 2' was released in 2014. The film stars Andrew Garfield returning to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man along with Emma Stone as Gwen and Sally Field as Aunt May. It also stars Jamie Foxx as Electro/Max Dillon and Dane DeHann as Harry Osborn/The Green Goblin.

I enjoyed watching this second film ofthe Andrew Garfield era. I remember going to see it with my best mate from school at the cinemas. We knew we'd enjoy and have a good ride with this film. I watched it again afterwards I went with my parents to see it in the cinema. Although I enjoyed this film, I wouldn't claim it to be the best Spidey film as I have reservations and a mixture of the good and the bad from it and feel that things could have been better.

Again like the first film, `The Amazing Spider-Man 2' derives from the modern day comics of `Spider-Man'. There were lots of changes made to certain characters which I noticed being a Spider-Man fan. The story seemed to take an artistic license and it became more about OsCorp and the mysteries surrounding it and also about Peter discovering more about his family history rather than focusing on his ordinary life as Peter. Also there were too many villains as was the case with `Spider-Man 3'.

Andrew Garfield plays the eponymous Spider-Man, a superhero who keeps the folks of New York City safe from an assortment of genetically mutated anti-heroes. His everyday alter-ego is Peter Parker, a struggling photographer.
Jamie Foxx plays Max Bryan, a research technician and uber-nerd who works for Oscorp. Oscorp lead the way with research into electro-magnetic power. Max gets involved in an industrial accident, ending up in a tank of electric eels, who bite him countless times. He transmogrifies into Electro, a creature who can use electro-magnetic power to devastating effect.
Emma Stone plays Gwen Stacey, Spidey's on off girlfriend, in a rather understated role.
Dane Dehann, in the standout performance of the movie, plays Harry Osborne, the twenty year old sole beneficiary of his late father's business Oscorp, a two hundred billion dollar organisation. Due to genetic mutation he's also the Green Goblin, another arch-villain bent on bringing Manhattan to its knees.
The film starts with a thrilling opening ten minute sequence on a plunging aircraft. It then goes straight into an equally thrilling ten minute segment through the streets of lower Manhattan, as Spider-Man tries to halt a robbery of plutonium. I haven't seen so many cars destroyed since The Blues Brothers, nor a truck cause so much damage since the opening scene in Beverly Hills Cop - The Blues Brothers [Blu-ray] [Region Free], Beverly Hills Cop: Triple Feature [Blu-ray].

As I write this review The Amazing Spider-Man 2 only has a 53% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes…. Really?! What’s wrong with you people?! Granted this is not in the same league as the very best superhero flicks, but it’s damn good fun with outstanding performances and astonishing set-pieces punctuated by moments of high drama and nicely-judged humour.

One of the big criticisms seems to be the “overabundance of characters”, but I don’t agree with this at all. This isn’t like Raimi’s hugely disappointing Spider-Man 3 which was overstuffed with villains all competing for screen time. Instead the main villain throughout most of this film is Electro, while separately we get the genesis story for Harry Osborn who only becomes the Goblin at the very end. Meanwhile the film’s third villain, Rhino, only appears in fun sequences at the beginning and end of the film and doesn’t feature in the main narrative at all. I accept that having the Goblin attack the very minute Electro is defeated is somewhat hard-to-swallow, but otherwise the bad guys have their own distinct arcs and it never feels like a “let’s-team-up-to-bash-Spidey” exercise.

Having said that, I can quite understand that comic book purists might take great exception to the dramatic re-imagining of the villains, especially Electro and Rhino. Of course nobody would have expected Marc Webb to give us an Electro in green and yellow spandex with lightning bolts on his head, but changing the character beyond recognition was maybe not the best move. I have less of a problem with Rhino – a guy in a Rhino suit would have looked ridiculous, so putting him in powered armour makes sense, though I’m not completely enamoured with the design.
