The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker returns as Spider-Man in this sequel that adds two new superpowered foes: Paul Giamatti as The Rhino and Jamie Foxx as Electro. Director Marc Webb, stars Emma Stone, Martin Sheen and Sally Field all return.

For Parker (Garfield), there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and loving Gwen (Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price - the emergence of Electro (Foxx) sees Parker confront a foe far more powerful than he, and his old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns proving all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 / Reviews

Rushed into development by Sony before they lost the rights to the character, 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man was unsettlingly familiar, the previous incarnation of the web-slinger having been on screen just five years prior. This sequel works hard to establish a more unique flavour, but it's lacking in other ways, a tonal mishmash that never quite coheres into a good movie.

This overlong superhero sequel gets by on sound, fury and star chemistry.

Webb’s affable sequel is tough to dislike despite its tonal whiplash and clumsy script.

This new Spidey is a bit dull.

Emotionally weightier and more satisfying than its predecessor.

A satisfying second issue with thrills, heartbreak, gasps, and a perfectly judged slingshot ending.
