OK, so the Spider-Man part of the movie is great. Garfield is fit to play this role. He and Emma have undeniable chemistry too, which makes the development of their relationship all the more touching. However, as has always been my personal issue with the franchise, the numerous villains feel rushed and their motivations are weak. Foxx does decently with his role, but they should have put more focus on him & left the Harry plot to heat up on the back-burner until the next film. Still enjoyable.

Not terrible, just disappointing. I quite enjoyed the reboot, but this was an unfocused mishmash of too many characters, villains, subplots, and sequel setups. Still, I'm sad we'll never get a proper follow-up to this. On to the next reboot!

I honestly don't see what all the complaint is about. Sure it's long, sure it's a bit crowded, but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn't lack ambition, entertainment, good acting or even a good screenplay. Sharply directed and very visual. While there are some flaws, this is a good Spider-Man movie. Stands really well as an imperfect character study more than anything.

This rebootchise has a cheesy villain problem. It's camp and cheap in weird places, and you can't do that and also try to score dark tone points. Has to be one or the other. Needs consistency, focus, a better script, and less unfunny humor - in particular, Spidey's self-banter. Certain scenes are good and within a better whole could have been something pretty special. It sets up some potential for the next film, so if they put out a solid third act this will end up looking better in retrospect.

All the spider-man stuff in the spider-man movie is good, what a shock (ha). I only watched this because the Spider-Man PS4 game is so good and I needed to ruin my spidey tingling. God awful music ahead. Dane DeHaan has the worst hair. I’m trying to cram too much in here and it’s some sort of commentary on this mess I guess.

With a young cast & indie director, it should've felt like a coming-of-age film that happened to be about a superhero. But like Batman Forever, this movie is overproduced; featuring multiple villains (one comic, one darkly gothic), a hero learning of his past, and a romance. And that doesn't even count deleted scenes, like Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane. A marginal recommendation for the appealing cast, and one scene that recreates one of the most famous moments of the Spider-Man mythology.

It's getting closer to what unfolds in my imagination when I think of the term 'Spiderman Movie', but it's not quite there yet. Main issues: the uneven pacing, unresolved conflicts and somewhat weak motivations from most characters to do things. Spidey is also too passive, there is no interesting story motivating him to do anything but punch criminals. And Peter's story is too soap opera-y. But like a sucker I'm still looking forward to the 3rd installment. The Sinister Six? My body is ready.

Too many villains, terrible pacing, and horrible music choices. How a movie can blaze through plot points so quickly and still seem long is baffling to me. The Rhino was completely unnecessary, and the relationship between Peter and Harry was explained in like 2 minutes (and boy howdy is Dane DeHaan bad in this). It's honestly difficult for any of the actors to elevate this bad script. A horrible disappointment, and I long for the day when Sony can't hurt Spider-Man anymore.

A surprising improvement over its 'let's pretend we've never seen it' predecessor. It kinda zips along as it pleases, full of unexplained plot holes and unlikely character motivations, but the relationships are more fleshed out and there's no denying the entertainment value the film offers. Then again, I haven't gotten out much lately so going to the theater was a welcome change.

I actually like the "new" witty Peter Parker compared to Maguire's shy version. Obviously there is great chemistry between Garfield and Stone and that definitely highs the experience, although, in between the great action, you miss the real motivation, the real hurt and anger, for this to kick in. Still, it's all good fun, better than the first one, and I'm looking forward to the next installment.

The most emo of all spiderman films. At any moment you expect Harry Osbourne or Peter Parker to whip out razor blades and commence the cutting. Garfield weeps like a bitch no less than 4 or 5 times in this..I lost count. The action is ok I guess, it's all obvious CGI which gives everything the appearance of a Playstation game. Emma Stone is well, Emma Stone..a generic blonde co-star #1343. Giamatti is campy as hell. Foxx is the only decent villain. The script decisions and editing is odd.

A visual upgrade, but a downgrade execution-wise. I enjoy Garfield's take on the character, but sometimes find his goofy schtick overdone. They treated the end of Gwen's story arc properly and with a darker edge than the rest of the flick would suggest (which can be both good and bad, as you'd like to see a consistent tone throughout). Electro's personality and motivations baffle me a bit. Feels like some trailer material was cut from the final film. It's a mixed bag, but see it if you're a fan.

With a crowded plot and character motivations that change from scene to scene in order to make each individual moment "work," The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is more or less a complete disaster. Its characters undergo short, confusing arcs -- if they get any at all -- and make no sense, the actors can't do a good job because their characters' motivations are too confusing or they're not given enough time to perform, and the action isn't good enough make up for this.

If you were to show someone the first and last twenty minutes of this movie and tell them to just imagine the middle part, I could see them thinking it's pretty good. It launches fun; it ends exciting. But this may be damn near the "second act problems"-est movie I've ever seen, with its middle section a glacially-paced, zero-excitement near two-hour tumor of what I conservatively estimate to be 400 million subplots. The middle stretch of this film is just plain bad.

Webb's sequel was overly ambitious in a lot of areas. Whether that was too many subplots, made for TV drama between Peter and Qwen. Electro and the green goblin being under cooked. It still remains to be seen how much Sony forced themselves into this as their absurd attempt to shove the Sinister Six was very annoying. They took chances, and it's still thoroughly entertaining, but sadly I think this could've been an excellent addition to the Spidey franchise, instead of killing it.

Just not as good as the first one. I dug Foxx as Electro, but Lizard was simply a better villain. I'll still say that this Spider Man series is better than the one Raimi put out, even if it hurts me to say so, and Garfield looks like he really shouldn't make a good spider-man, but he does. So this one ends up being decent, but not great.

Garfield and Stone have strong chemistry and make an affable pair in Peter and Gwen, and the film only gets by on the back of their relationship. The villains are the main problem - Electro is unconvincing in every imaginable way, Green Goblin is lazily tacked-on and Rhino's little more than a one-note joke. Additionally, the CGI action scenes are fairly humdrum and far too showy, and the ending is rushed due to so many superfluous scenes earlier on.

It's like riding a rollercoaster that get's stuck for half an hour on every turn. The on-off, ultracliché romance bullshit is even more tedious than in raimi's installments (how did they manage that?!). The action scenes are nicely...rendered(?), but make an excruciating use of slow motion. The laughably weak "villains" feel more like necessary props to the stupid lovestory, which almost redeems itself by evoking a real emotion other than nausea in the finale. But too little, too late.

The pacing in this movie is bad, really bad. While i did enjoy the overall story and the charisma of the movies visuals this movie was very hard to sit through.

With some better allocation of screen time and the removal of pointless scene/charecters*coughrhinocough*this movie could have been alot better

I will dub this score and review the first of many in a series I'd like to call "Goin Against that Grain." No, this isn't a great movie. It stumbles and struggles under its own weight. But I've never seen a movie before that made me feel like I was back in 3rd grade, picking up a new Spider-Man comic and reading it twice before I even got home. I can forgive a lot of things if you can bring me some of the magic of comic books that I've lost. Gritty messes masquerading as comic book movies don't.

Spider-man has always been my favourite superhero, so I'm a bit of an easy sell when it comes to these movies. This one...gets better as it goes along. I wasn't really enjoying it that much for most of its running time, but by the end it left me hungering for more. Not as good as the first two Tobey Maguire flicks (the joke is: this is the second best Spiderman 2...ever!), but if you liked the first Amazing Spidey, you'll like this one as well.

There's lots to love and lots to hate here. In terms of visual spectacle, this movie blows all the previous ones out of the water. It's very poorly paced, the attempts at light-hearted humor are even more terrible than in the first one, and the backstory for the main villain was ridiculously bad. I had the most fun when Paul Giamatti and Marton Csokas hammed up their roles to ridiculous levels. The script is wobbly and overcrowded with subplots. This is a messy movie, but it's fun nonetheless.

More so here than in the first film, our hero is a fellow we can cheer. A guy who's settled into being ... good. He's got humor and pluck and a never-give-up spirit. He cares for family and friends. He takes time to bolster everyone he meets. But more than anything he wants to do the right thing, no matter the cost. And that applies to everything from putting himself in the line of fire while saving a city, to simply upholding a private promise. (pluggedin.com)

A lot of things in this movie were annoying me. It was a tad too CGI looking and Peter Parker/Gwen Stacy teenage relationship was obnoxious. Then the ending saved it all and elevated it quite a bit in my eyes. Garfield is a great Spider-man, or at least he is written more like Spider-man than Maguire was. I still don't buy him as Peter Parker considering how cool he looks.

Finally! A Peter/Spidey portrayal that is a worthy comic book derivative. The humor has always been subpar or missing, but I feel like the personality was spot on this go around. I don't quite understand the hate, I enjoyed nearrrrly everything. A very well done emotional arc with Gwen, too. Elektro, on the other hand, was a mess. A better written villain was needed.

I went in expecting mediocrity and got one of the worst films I've ever seen. It is impossible to understate the awfulness of this script. Horrendous dialogue, every possible cliche and tension building side events that a 12 year old at summer camp would revise before putting in writing. It's a 2.5 hour version of a theme park motion simulator ride. In the words of the great Mike Stoklasa, "loud fucking noises!"

This movie has received a lot of criticism and to some extent I get it, but I found it very entertaining from start to finish. It may be the most comic book in style of any superhero movie I've seen, which makes a bit over the top at times, but I think it pulls it off. I like Marc Webb's Spider-Man movies, definitely preferable to The Dark Knight Rises, Spiderman 3, and of number of other mediocre to bad superhero movies over the years. Electro was fairly poorly done to be fair.

Not as strong plot wise as it's predecessor, as it tries to go in too many directions at once. It relies heavily on quick paced action scenes to transition between heavier themes. DeHaan is probably the most impressive,his demeanor chilling and eerie right from the start. Garfield and Stone are amicable but don't do much to add more depth to their characters. Heavy on the CGI and heavy on the foreshadowing the Amazing Spiderman 2 is simply just another comic book film with tonnes of action

I think this movie gets WAY too much hate, and some of it is focused on the most unimportant things, like Rhino for example, which is nothing but fun action to open and close the movie. I think the story and characters are designed well, but were designed as set up for a third movie that never happened. The spider-man action is the best it has ever been, and love that they did the Gwen storyline justice. Not as good as the first overall, but still way better than people give it credit for.

The not-too-bad Spider-Man. I liked this better than the first one since the pacing was faster and we don't get bogged down too much with backstory. I'm not sure who Foxx pissed off to get such crappy lines. Unlike Marvel films, I like that there isn't a need to have an action sequence every 5 minutes. Garfield takes off his mask less frequently this time, but now he's using his powers in public as Peter. Mary Jane cut plz. Fav scenes: I like his de-escalation attempts even if they don't work.

Disappointing sequel takes the promising beginning established in part 1 and squanders it on a vapid retread of everything that was wrong with Part 3 of the Raimi trilogy -- endless, dreary dissections of Parker's love-life, combined with a fairly toothless development of his relationship/rivalry with Osborn (played by DeHaan as a DiCaprio in training). Oddly truncated end scene with Giamatti, and brilliant work by an underutilised Foxx, provide some fun, but not enough for a recommendation.

Super bright, colorful, hyper-kinetic.

Where the first fails, the second more than makes it up. Maybe I was just itching for a good superhero sequel, but this was grand. The beginning is a bit shaky, akin to the first, but what remains is well-paced and uses a blend of humor, joy, camp, action, and sadness with its cast, music, and story to make something that not only hit the spot as a superior sequel, but was simply also a great superhero movie, Spider-Man movie, theater movie, and just MOVIE overall more than it might have been.

Suffers from the same problems of Spider-Man 3 (too many villains, overly busy plot). There are quite a few things I liked on their own, such as the chemistry between Garfield and Stone, Webb's direction of the romance scenes, and the action set-pieces - but put together they don't add up to create a good movie. There are just too many villains vying for screen-time, and none of them are particularly exciting. Overall, it's not bad but it's the weakest Spider-Man film.

There's a really good first draft of a screenplay here if you were to remove the pointless Electro character. The chemistry between Garfield and Stone is great and does a good job of setting up the pivotal scene in the final act. Unfortunately, the fact that this event occurs so late in the film leads to a very rushed conclusion. Webb's direction is also iffy at times, as you can tell he's often searching desperately for an iconic "hero shot" that never quite comes together. Still kinda fun...

Finally, on the fifth try, the Spider-Man sequences look, feel, and sound like Spider-Man. The action is great and his personality is spot on. Should have been thirty minutes shorter, cutting out all of the bullshit about his parents and some of the weepy relationship stuff. The villains all have shit motivations, but aren't offensive enough to ruin the movie, like the Lizard was. Jamie Foxx sure was terrible though.

Huge disappointment when you think about there was so much potential to make Amazing Spider-Man sequel work. Lots of villains, subplots, unexplained events turned this flick into some sort of a dull, too factitious product, even for a super hero picture. It's funny that people were criticising Raimi's latest Spidey film just because of abundance of baddies. Well, compared to it, Spider-Man 3 becomes a masterpiece.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" feels like a film in two minds. It can't decide if it's a romcom, or a generic action film with a 2D bad-guy. To be honest, it does the romcom thing better. Scenes with Gwen Stacy (Stone) are heartfelt and sincere, whereas the action feels like it's there to just fill the time, or provide a convenient time-lapse in the romantic thread. The action on the other hand is bland and rarely builds any excitement for that much show.

A boring mess of a movie. Another CGI vs CGI finale Too much time spent trying to build a secret six franchise instead of trying to give this movie a plot or make it enjoyable. Go watch Raimi's Spiderman 2

Probably the least engaging and most forgettable of the 21st Century Spider-Man films. I wanted to but I just couldn't make myself care. Almost seem more like a mini series than anything else.

Surprisingly few action scenes. I liked Foxx as Max, but not as Electro. I still don't see a reason to reboot this franchise, when almost nothing has changed.

This flick is utter crap and frankly I don't have time for crap anymore. Especially with budgets like this one. Make the pain stop!

I did not like this fucking movie. Whoever edited this piece of shit needs to be transferred to fucking Alaska. Garfield is still good, and I understand the tone the movie set and it was right, but fuck man, this movie was so god damned jumpy and all over the place. Blah.

A young man struggles to come to terms with the deaths of his parents, his uncle, his girlfriend’s father, and eventually and especially his girlfriend, this last loss being so devastating that he really becomes totally incapable of going on with his life for a period of at least three minutes of onscreen time. After which it’s all good and the movie ends. Despite quite a confused and messy storyline, somehow this generally works a little better than the preceding instalment. Stone is appealing.

Whatever. On the plus side I like Garfield (he's a lot more fun than Maguire was), and your mileage for candy-coloured superhero fun may vary, but this was another bland and disappointing experience. The CGI and cutting in the action sequences look like bad video game boss fights, it tries to win brownie points by recreating a big moment but it feels unearned, and not only are there too many villains but none of them feel like humans or even threats. A little focus goes a long way, people!

Visually stunning. Everything else is a complete mess.The script is too coincidental and irrational. The dialogue was cringe-worthy. Recommended to anyone who is 16 years old and below.

There are genuinely some great character moments in this movie. Which is why it is such a shame that the rest of the movie was a flop. Weak character motivations, events happening by pure coincidence, and giant leaps in logic drag the film down. It's almost as if it as edited in a blender.

So the script-writer was either drunk or insane. That's pretty par for the course. More troubling is the fact, that so was the casting director.

A lot of great individual scenes, but a mess overall, dragged down by a plot that tries to do too much.
