The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Title - The Amazing Spiderman 2

Year of release - 2014

UK Classification - 12A

Genre - Action /Adventure

Length - 2 hours 22 minutes

Director(s) - Marc Webb

Starring - Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro. Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn/Green Goblin and Colm Feore as Donald Manken to name a few.

What is it about? - Spider-Man returns in a epic story of heroism. Spider-Man faces a daily battle between doing what he loves the most and that of his normal seemingly boring life as Peter Parker. A very socially awkward worker from Oscorp is transformed into a hell raising electically charged super human and starts to wreak havoc in New York. Followed by the return of Peter's old friend Harry aka Green Goblin, things go from bad to worse for the people of New York. There is only one person who can save them all from Electro and Green Goblin and that person is Spider-Man.

Is it any good? - For a Spider-Man film it is good but nothing to really shout about. The story is well written and acted out perfectly, however it seems to lack in the true spirit of Spider-Man films past. It is sell weird getting used to the new cast, however the change is for the best as Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone feel like they have taken their roles more seriously.

Why should I watch it? - Any Spider-Man fan must watch this film, along with any one who loves a great story. It is a long film but is worth watching at least once.

How do you rate it? - 7/10
