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.

Format: DVD
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].

I had missed being able to take my family to see this in April 2014 for it's cinema release & how pleased I am as I would have paid instead of under a 10 the cost of a family of 4 going to Pizza Hut then queuing with our children & then our kids would have walked away tot ally disappointed.
I thought the whole point of a super hero movie was to entertain children & hopefully the rest of the family but Electro they did not really make a real competitor as Lizard had been in the 1st one for Spiderman, the Rhino well simply why bother for the 2 mins he was in it as the Rhino & the Green Goblin was a badly stepped move as he was Parker's long lost friend returning to NYC.Basically they over loaded it with awful fight scenes,too many villains & also (spoiler if you have not seen it yet) Gwen Stacey being killed by the G Goblin which has made my 2 totally disinterested in the movie & if they make a p3 then they will probably wait for Sky to show it.Honestly Andrew G is far better than wishy washy Tobey M but apart from that save yourself some money or go to the charity shop where I dropped off the one I bought after 1 viewing.

So many problems with this...

As Spidey, the character comes across cocky and mischievous, just like the comics. But as Peter Parker, the actor just seems gormless and un-engaging.
We're only into the 2nd movie and already we need the "relationship crisis" with Gwen Stacy ?
The Rhino is just terrible!
The Goblin is also unconvincing. The trouble with trying to give this villain "proper motivation" for hating Spidey is that there's no build-up. Harry turns up and is suddenly Pete's long-lost buddy and then 10 minutes later he hates him.
Electro is funny before he changes - then he becomes a blank emotionless monster. Just dull.

If only these superb effects could have been married with the earlier warmth and characterisation of the Sam Raimi movies (except, of course, Spider-Man 3 - which, like this movie, tried to do too much, too quickly).

Format: Blu-ray
Version I saw: UK cinema release (2D)
Actors: 6/10
Plot/script: 5/10
Photography/visual style: 6/10
Music/score: 6/10
Overall: 6/10
If the producers of this film thought everyone would have forgotten the Raimi versions by now, they were dead wrong. The reasons for these films are well-documented: contractual stipulations mean Sony lose the rights to the character if they don't make films on a semi-regular basis. The commercial machinations are quite interesting, in a way, but not very artistically credible.
To be fair, in some areas, this version stands up quite well. Andrew Garfield makes a good Spidey, balancing the nerdy weakling and wisecracking hero sides of the character. This has especially pleased some people who never liked Tobey Maguire's portrayal, although I think he was at least as good. The rapport with co-star Emma Stone is good as well; whether this is just good acting or a sign of their reported off-screen romance I do not know, and to be honest don't much care, although I understand that it makes a great bit of PR. Too bad that... well, you'll see.
Out of the two villains, Dane DeHaan has even more of a balance to strike as the schizophrenic Harry Osborn/Green Goblin, and manages it with more aplomb than James Franco, in my opinion. It's just a shame that James Foxx is given so little to do as Electro. He is a very good actor, and doesn't deserve to be CGIed almost out of existence and given an emotional register that ranges from angry to very angry.
The plot holes have been commented on by others, but I think they overstate the matter. Yes, there are plot holes, and contrivances, and none of the good stuff is quite enough to forgive this, but many of the criticisms don't hang together for me.
