What to know

critics consensus

While the cast is outstanding and the special effects are top-notch, the latest installment of the Spidey saga suffers from an unfocused narrative and an overabundance of characters. Read critic reviews

    Not so amazing, at all. I really liked The Amazing Spider-man (my favourite), but this movie didn't work for me. Story is mess. Too many villians and subplots. Some things are just necessary. Main villian is not that good, Green Goblin is useless and Rhino shouldn't have been there. Chemistry between Peter and Gwen is good, suit is amazing and action is epic. That is all. It could have been better, but unfortunately it is not.

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the worst Spider-Man movie I've ever seen. It's not an awful movie but its just very flawed. Let me explain what I liked and disliked. Positives; The action scenes are fun. My favourite one is the Electro fight at the plant, lots of fun with slow mo action. All the cast from the previous film are really good especially Andrew Garfield who still does a good job as Spider-Man not so much as Peter Parker though. The scenes with Spider-Man swinging around is well shot. Gwen Stacy's death even though it was predictable was very sad. Now all of that out of the way I'm gonna explain what I didn't like. First off this film has pretty bad dialogue and writing. Electro is poorly portrayed by Jamie Foxx, I love Jamie Foxx, he's a great actor but he just wasn't very good as Electro. The best I can say about him was that he was okay, but he had like no legit motivation. Dane DeHann as Harry Osborn he was alright, but very over the top at times and when he turns into Green Goblin.... what the hell man! He was trying way too hard to be like Willem Dafoe Green Goblin and it just comes off as forced and hilarious. But overall he's the best villain in the movie even though he only shows up as Green Goblin in the last minute. The romance while at times good, the dialogue needed some work. The story is pretty convoluted and all over the place. Also Rhino is by far the worst handled villain in this movie. Paul Giamatti is way too over the top as Rhino and he is humiliated in the beginning and he only comes back for the end of the movie, the trailers pretty much lied to you and it was really disappointing. Other gripes I had was the choice of songs in scenes, character logic and villain motivation, and the fact that it was painfully obvious that they were trying to set up a Sinister Six movie and universe. Overall The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is mediocre at best. It has some fun sequences, Andrew Garfield is again great as the character of Spider-Man and it does have some good moments. But it is an extremely flawed film with problems all over the place. All in all if you can look past the flaws it is enjoyable, but fans of Spider-Man might be disappointed such as myself.

    So we get a sequel to the incredibly overrated "The Amazing Spider-Man" film and it turns out to be s**t? Who would have ever thought that? Well, definitely not Marc Webb, because he manages the movie with all the same mistakes he made in the first movie, and even more. The movie features too many villains and the main one is so over-the-top and doesn't really appear more than 30 minutes in the film. The only good, once again, is the chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, even though it has heavily fallen since the first movie. Also, a better name for this movie should have been "Sinister Six's Crappy Prequel!"
