The Amazing Spider-Man 2

8 out of 10

The Amazing Spider-Man is a 2014 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man, directed by Marc Webb and released by Columbia Pictures. It serves as a sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and was announced in 2011. The studio hired James Vanderbilt to write the screenplay and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to rewrite it. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field star.

Development of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 began after the success of The Amazing Spider-Man. DeHaan, Giamatti, Jones, and Cooper were cast between December 2012 and February 2013. Filming took place in New York City from February to June 2013. The film was released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2, 2014, in the United States. The film received mixed reviews; some critics highlighted Garfield and Stone's performances and the engaging visual style, while others criticized the overuse of characters and subplots. The film grossed $709 million worldwide, becoming the lowest grossing film in the series. It is also currently the 6th highest grossing film of 2014.

If you liked the first Amazing Spider-Man, you will like this one. The plot is a little weak but Garfield and Stone play amazing roles. This film doesn't take itself as serious as other Spider-Man series. If you like Marvel Superheros, a definite must see.

When New York is put under siege by Oscorp, Spider-Man must step up to save the city and his loved ones he swore to protect.
