If she could just get away from him she would be safe. She would be free. She wouldn't be falling, falling, falling, needing him to catch her just one last time, and failing.

As a former trainer, the reviewer feels the spider-bod should be rockclimber-ish. All that pulling and hauling should result in some truly epic lats, and Popeye forearms.

So much of this feels like deja vu.

Sony has now fully bought into the narratively-damaging idea that teasing what's to come is more important than the film itself.

When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is good, it's very, very good -- and when it's bad, it's perfunctory.

Every personal crisis seems to serve the action, and the drama is bloated and blunted because of it.

We're pushed by a heavy hand to the film's conclusion. What happens? ... There's slow motion. Copious computer effects. Even more slow motion. Cogs and distractions. And then... well, the comics did this simpler and better in the Seventies.

Even the twist feels like it comes up short of its intended emotional weight, and it's hard to think fans will remember this installment as anything special 10 years from now.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not a new approach to the same old formula: no, it is basically a remake of other recent and derivative films.

Takes the simple story of down-to-earth hero Peter Parker and overstuffs it to Rhino-sized levels.

A forgettable, tedious blockbuster.

The narrative drifts, and those extravagant effects, paradoxically, make the film eminently forgettable, or at least indistinguishable from every other CGI-heavy assault on our senses.

September 22, 2016
Over-stuffed with plot and consequently struggles to invest the audience in any of it, since there's so much to get through and so many future films and spinoffs to set up.

The only parts of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that work are those scenes with Garfield and Stone, who bring energy and life to characters that otherwise might have felt somewhat lifeless.

[It] doesn't just double down on what didn't work in the first film, it manages to undo some of the good qualities of the original as well. The result is a film that kicks off the summer blockbuster season with a resounding thud.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not interested in telling a new story, and (exists) to further develop a big-money franchise to fill the release schedule of many summers to come.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Director Mark Webb crafts some solid action scenes but the only truly "amazing" thing about Part 2 is the villain. Somehow, he has come up with a nemesis even less interesting than his last one.

If there's something in this movie that needs saving, it's the film itself. And that's an order above even The Amazing Spider-Man.
April 17, 2014
You friendly neighbourhood web-slinger returns for more of the same, albeit with added confusion and much less charm.

When you balance all the pros and cons, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn't really end up being any better or any worse than the previous film. It does end up being a bit of a disappointment though.
