    Things go wrong quickly with Amazing 2. Am I the only one who hates the word Amazing to describe a movie that isn't? Just asking. If I had to pinpoint where this epic goes south, I'd start with the tonal shifts. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It has action sequences that will appeal to people looking for the usual pyrotechnics, but the core of the movie - and the source of the audience's interest - is emotion. show more

    Aerial sequences are often thrilling. However, interpersonal relations are front and center in this installment. show more

    This franchise needs more than a reset. It's ripe for retirement. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Lacks the origin-story freshness of its predecessor (even if the inaugural Garfield Spider-Man came only five years after the final installment of the Sam Raimi-directed Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy). It lacks a charismatic central character, too. show more

    There are two types of superhero movies: the ones that brood and the ones that swing. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is proudly the latter, filled with high-energy action. show more

    Leslie Felperin The Hollywood Reporter

    The plot gets itself tangled up in multiple villain strands, but in the main this installment is emotionally weightier and more satisfying than its predecessor. show more

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is just good enough to make you painfully aware of all the ways it's not good at all. show more

    An essential entry in the cinematic canon of Spider-Man, complete with new villains, new questions, and new heartaches. show more

    Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

    Director Marc Webb and his forces come up with some gorgeous special effects, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have terrific chemistry, but as is the case with far too many superhero movies, the plot is a bit of an overstuffed mess. show more

    This is the dumbest movie i have seen. Plot was retarded. The writer of the script should be fired for writing such inane crap.

    Because the focus is on the computer animated scenes with endless car crashes, explosions, killing, fighting, too many villians who can't be distinguised from the good guys, this movie implodes. Unlike the first SM that had a storyline with minimal computer crap, this is a boring mess because the computer guys were unleashed and the story tellers were on leashes.

    This is the best comic book movie I have seen in a while. I did not like the first one so I was not expecting to like this one as much as I did. I was getting tired of the genre but this movie is bound to be one of the best movie-going experiences of the year. My entire family loved it! See it!
