Earlier this summer, I saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the sequel to the 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man. After seeing the film, I decided it would be better to write down a quick rundown instead of a full blown movie review. So without further ado, here is what I thought about The Amazing Spider-Man 2. *Minor Spoiler Alert

Positives

  • Stunning visual effects and action sequences
  • Truer to Spider-Man’s character than the first film(The Amazing Spiderman)
  • The Spiderman costume looks great
  • Electro as the villain

I really hated the old costume. Here’s a side by side comparison

Negatives

  • A lot of moving parts that often distract from the main plot
  • Not enough of the main villain (Electro)
  • No real motive for Electro’s villainy
  • Unrelated X-Men clip at the end

“More screen time Spider-Man!”

 

Closing Thoughts

  • The jokes were actually funny this time around
  • Lots of seeding for future films in the franchise
  • Gets a bit sidetracked from Peter’s story
  • Wait, is that Black Cat? AWESOME
  • Good movie but not exactly amazing
  • Sinister Six movie? Um ok.
  • Kind of feels like something is missing from this movie

Black Cat needs to be in the third film!!
