The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014

Subtitles

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.

Marc Webb returns to direct what Sony had hoped was the second instalment of a longer running reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. Writing this now, I'm armed with the knowledge that once again the web slinger will get another reboot in 2017, which after viewing this sequel comes as no surprise.

It's not so much that it's a bad film, or a bad Spider-Man film at that, it's just that it feels all very familiar, whilst simultaneously hugging the same pitfalls as Sam Raimi's Spiderman 3. Webb tries to juggle a screenplay with 3 villains (well two and a half really), a tricky romance between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and of course there's school, a best friend and affairs of the home heart to deal with.

The introduction of Electro (Jamie Foxx) is a good move, inputting a new villain into the spidey world is most welcome. Yet in spite of Foxx earning some level of sympathy with the characterisation, it never really works and unfortunately draws comparisons with a certain Mr. Freeze from another franchise. Dane DeHaan comes in as Harry Osborn, soon to be Green Goblin, again the tortured soul act is well performed, but come Goblin time the make up and effects work is laughable. While Paul Giamati as Aleksei Sytsevich - cum - Rhino, is having fun but is barely in the picture.

Stone is the best thing in it by far, while Garfield works hard, but there is no getting away from the fact that they both are - and look - too old for their parts. The action is fun and pulse raising, but there's not enough of it to sustain a running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes. Though on the plus side Webb and his team are to be applauded for choosing a story line that is ultimately bold and contains a great emotional whack. All told it's a shaky entry to the spidey world, one that once again forced Sony into another rethink. Lets hope the next journey spidey goes on has some clarity and streamlined sense. 6/10

As a life-long Spidey fan this was disappointing. I'd seen it at the cinema and thought a few quid was OK to buy to complete my collection. And whilst Andrew Garfield is good as Peter Parker, it's really Emma Stone who steals the show. Rubbish realisation of Rhino, Green Goblin and Electro; way too many villains. The lessons learnt after Spider-Man 3 did not stick. Shame. Roll on the next re-boot...

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.

This was another great entry into the Spider-Man franchise. The film looks great and it continues to provide more back story to the origins of Spiderman, his family and the big bad Oscorp. The weakest part of the film was the inclusion of Rhino / Aleksei Sytsevich which I felt was unnecessary as the character was played out like a disposable henchman and Paul Giamatti was definetly under-used.
The strongest part of both movies has been Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone who continue to have brilliant chemistry on screen which make the final scenes of the movie even more powerful. I'm happy the film makers stuck by one of the big story arcs from the comics as it is a big event in the character development of Spiderman and effects future plotlines. It would have been so easy to stretch it out so it was a brave move.
This is one of the edge's this franchise has over the previous Spiderman movies, the influence of the comic book storylines. The old movies were still great films but I just feel these ones just have a little more heart.

I love the Spiderman films more so when the original cast was operating, the new cast is not bad, Emma Stone is excellent as is the new Spiderman, the first with the new cast was good to be honest but this sequel is utter rubbish, I waisted £5
