It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.

With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

Over-stuffed with plot and consequently struggles to invest the audience in any of it, since there's so much to get through and so many future films and spinoffs to set up.

Despite the efforts of Electro, the franchise is running shockingly low on juice.

About the best thing one can say about this fiasco is that Webb has taken only two films to reach the same exhausted, exhausting endpoint that Raimi required three to achieve. It's progress, of a sort.

This is a movie that needs to remove a piece of jewelry.

The trouble with director Marc Webb's disappointing sequel is it wants to have it both ways: to take seriously human connection and loss and also spin the spectacular and pulpy... Spider-Man 2 never locates that sweet spot.

The studios and the producers have to split the difference -- between excellence and adequacy, between darkness and light, between seriousness and fun. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 might have been split too far. It doesn't taste like anything.

I think I'll pass on The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
5/1/2014 by Richard Roeper
Overstuffed plot and too many villains, but the visual effects pop, and Garfield/Stone are still better than Maguire/Dunst.

The successes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are human, the failures are typical of superhero CGI adaptations. In a world where the incredible is routine, the "amazing" is mundane.

The new Spider-Man series has managed to do in two films what the previous Spider-Man series did in three: transform an engrossing comic-book coming-of-age epic into an overstuffed and off-putting battle royale.

At just under two and a half hours, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" isn't just a raucous good time; it's several of them, pitched to as many different audiences, constantly at war with one another.

When Garfield conceals Peter's confused-angry- betrayed scowl beneath that shiny red mask, Spider-Man 2 summons the giddy derring-do of the best Iron Man offerings. It's a good movie that could have been great.
5/1/2014 by Tom Huddleston
Fans who made the first movie such a huge success will doubtless find much to enjoy here, while others will long for the boldness, scope and wit of The Avengers.

Even though the ride is bumpy, the final destination is more than worth the effort.

Andrew Garfield, returning as Peter Parker, remains ingratiatingly jittery. You can believe that this kid, never at rest, could instantly transform himself into Spider-Man. He matches up well with Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy.

How bad is this one ...? Amazingly so. Villainy abounds, but the villains are strident contrivances. Spider-Man flies, but does so dutifully, without joy.

Every personal crisis seems to serve the action, and the drama is bloated and blunted because of it.
5/1/2014 by J. R. Jones
Amazing is a word so overused it no longer has any impact, which makes it the perfect adjective for this second installment of the second franchise based on the Marvel Comics superhero.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is easy to watch but hard to pin down, like a creature with eight legs going in different directions.
5/1/2014 by Ann Hornaday
An unforgivably long assemblage that never coalesces into a compelling story.
