The Amazing Spider-man 2 can serve to entertain, especially if you love 3D and special effects interspersed with the occasional expertly acted scene.

It's fun, but nothing more.

While it shares problems with its predecessor, it also confirms Garfield as the very best big screen iteration of Spidey. What's more, there's even perhaps an argument that he's the strongest of all of Marvel's movie misfits.

The fifth web slinger film since 2002 (the second in this reboot) is overstuffed with plot threads flying everywhere, but there is just enough there to keep the series alive.

The movie may be lacking focus, overstuffed and overlong (2.5 hours), but I didn't find the changing tone distracting.

Is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 worth watching? Yes, especially on the big screen, when we can feel ourselves flying along. Amazing may be overstating the movie's impact, though.

I'm still not convinced that we actually needed this rebooted series, but it's getting better - even if it is at a glacial pace. Recommended for diehard Spider-Man fans only.

For every moment that [The Amazing Spider-Man 2] gets blatantly wrong, it has another moment of heart or greatness which saves the film from plummeting into Batman & Robin territory.

A thoroughly enjoyable watch and even a bit heartbreaking.

Is it perfect? NO. Is it better than the first one? Possibly. Will EVERYONE be happy? Hell No. Will it entertain the majority? Most likely.

Not the worst Spider-Man movie... but the most disappointing for sure.

I predict an Oscar win (skip the nomination, head straight to Go) for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for special effects.

This second outing does have its faults (including a dizzying pace that makes it hard to savor the film) but it definitely delivers the thrills, suspense and a sheer, undiluted adrenaline charge.

What we have here is a fun, cool and overlong film that we have no problem enjoying while it's playing, only for it to fade quickly from memory like a cobwebbed past that holds no importance.

A wonderful mess of a film - as lovably neurotic and unstable as the webslinger himself.

It could easily be shorter and no one would be mad, but personally, I thought it was a tonal improvement on the last film and actually made me care that I was watching a movie about Spider-Man.

Although it drags at times and is simply too long, dampening the emotional impact of some key plot points, the fine performances -- particularly Garfield's and a fine closing scene -- will leave you thinking this Spider-Man is still kind of amazing.

Everyone has done an excellent job on director Marc Webb's exciting, well-crafted sequel to his first Spider-Man film. But it's impossible to reboot audiences' brains, and forget the same job was done even better, only the other day.

Frustrates as much as it entertains.

What works for the film are its leads, solid performances all around, some great chemistry and the VFX.
