Synopsis – When atrocities threaten New York, Spider-Man must protect both its citizens and his loved ones before the city befalls into tragedy.
My Take – The rebooted 2012 version was unfairly shrugged off by the critics & a section audience, but hats off to the genius Marc Webb, and gives fans what they have longed for an exciting, mesmerizing and pulse- pounding adventure one that stays true to the comics.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a jam packed film with many characters & sub plots who appear to be too bloated at times, but who cares as far Sony is ready to provide us an own Spider-man Universe. Andrew Garfield (who is by far the greatest Spidey and Peter Parker) and Emma Stone light up the screen with their meaningful and charismatic chemistry ensuring that sometimes two people talking can be just as exciting as watching the action unfold. Jamie Foxx as Electro gives a career changing performance & man he is creepy! As expected its Dane DeHaan who steals the show in a short but more menacing Goblin. Paul Giamatti is in a cameo as Rhino (Apparently more in TAS 3 or Sinister Six).
The film undoubtedly has the most epic action sequences seen ever (Hear this Marvel Studios!). If you hated the last one, just watch this one anyways, its definitely better than the first one (even though the first one is brilliant). This movie definitely puts the amazing in The Amazing Spider-Man.
