Claps for:The gripping fight sequences.
Slaps for: Predictability
Popcorn Refill: Some
The Story: Spiderman has to fight a good guy gone bad, Electro. His love life with Gwen is also on shaky ground. The emergence of one villain after another just makes things worse for Spidey.
Performance: Andrew Garfield as the humanized Spiderman, and Emma Stone as his love interest, are fit for their roles. Jamie Foxx as the troubled Electro is convincing and menacing enough. Dane DeHann as the evil Oscorp descendent is sufficiently eerie.
Music and Special Effects: The background score is fittingly dramatic adding to the viewing experience. The special effects are delightful to watch specially in Imax. The fight sequences are highlighted with the VFX, though some instances might remind you of The Matrix.
Combo on Offer: The Amazing Spiderman 2 is full of good performances, VFX, and two evil guys. In spite of the potential, the story seems lacking. The villain Electro is menacing enough but his agenda isn't. The reason for him to lash out is nothing more than a scorned teenage girl's. The sense of panic doesn't really heighten as much. The character sketches could have been better too. The end has a hook for a sequel but is a drawn out mess. The predictability of the plot is imminent. Overall, a film with hope that fizzles as it progresses.
Our Verdict: The Amazing Spiderman 2 is an average film with spectacular visuals.
