Description

Andrew Garfield reprises his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in this superhero sequel based on the Marvel Comics characters. By day Peter Parker enjoys an ordinary life, spending time with his girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone), but by night he flies high amidst New York skyscrapers as he battles evil. The emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), a figure with startling power and malevolent intentions, poses Spider-Man his greatest challenge to date, while he also has The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) to keep under control. The unexpected return of his old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) is more welcome. Together, the pair come to realise that shadowy corporation Oscorp seems to be responsible for much of the evil they encounter. Can they find a way to put an end to Oscorp's nefarious activities?

Synopsis
The web-slingin' wall-crawler hits the screens once again in this follow-up to Marc Webb's 2012 reboot of the series. Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker, who squares off against the villainous Electro, played by Jamie Foxx.

As the film opens, we find Richard (Campbell Scott) and Mary Parker (Embeth Davitz) stealing away with some crucial Oscorp files while leaving young Peter in the care of Aunt May (Sally Field) and Uncle Ben. Flash forward about a decade, and Peter (Garfield) is swinging into action as Spider-Man; having successfully thwarted the hijacking of an Oscorp truck by notorious Russian criminal Aleksei Sytsevich (Paul Giamatti), Peter ditches the costume just in time to meet up with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) at their high school graduation. Despite his deep love for Emma, however, Peter remains haunted by his promise to her late father not to get emotionally involved with her for fear that she could be targeted by Spider-Man's enemies.

Meanwhile, young Harry Osborne (Dane DeHaan) inherits OsCorp and a deadly retrovirus from his father Norman (Chris Cooper), and brilliant but timid OsCorp scientist Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) gets infused with a powerful dose of electricity while attempting to fix a faulty power circuit in the lab. Upon regaining consciousness, Max discovers that he has the power to harness electrical currents - the higher the voltage the more powerful he becomes. When a battle with Max in Times Square shorts out Spidey's web-shooters, Peter goes to work on developing a more reliable model of his signature weapon while Harry grows convinced that Spider-Man's blood is the key to his survival. Later, villainous OsCorp chairman Donald Menken (Colm Feore) steals the company out right out from under Harry, driving the vengeful youth to break Max -- now Electro -- out of the heavily-guarded Ravencroft Institute for a two-pronged attack on Menken and Spider-Man. The stage for that battle is set when New York City goes dark just as Peter declares his love to Gwen, plunging the wise-cracking web-slinger into a fight that could forever alter the course of his life.

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..."
Richard Roeper (30 Apr 2014, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a satisfying second issue with thrills, heartbreak, gasps, and a perfectly judged slingshot ending."
Kim Newman (11 Apr 2014, )
Entertainment Weekly
"It's a Marvel spectacle that manages to deftly balance razzle-dazzle, feel-it-in-your-gut slingshot moments of flight and believable human relationships." -- Grade: B
Chris Nashawaty (2 May 2014, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[T]his installment is emotionally weightier and more satisfying than its predecessor."
Leslie Felperin (8 Apr 2014, )
Los Angeles Times
"Garfield gives Peter a touching sensitivity and Spidey the playful wryness the Marvel Comics creators first envisioned. Stone's Gwen is flinty, flirty and super-smart."
Betsy Sharkey (1 May 2014, )
Total Film
"Stone’s Gwen remains a breath of fresh air for women in comic book movies; she has smarts and spirit...and her intuitive chemistry with Garfield remains as much of a joy to watch as it was in 2012."
Emma Dibdin (9 Apr 2014, )
Variety
"[P]layed again with wiry charm and a streak of goofy humor by Garfield, Parker enters and exits the film a hip, relentlessly resourceful crime-fighter..."
Guy Lodge (8 Apr 2014, )
Washington Post
"[T]here are at least two genuinely breathtaking set pieces to be admired here, including a climactic, emotional gut-punch of a scene set in a clock tower toward the end of the film..."

Customer Reviews

Above Average Blu-ray

Reviewed by on

Video quality is sharp and colorful as is standard for all modern Sony movie releases. Sound is loud and clear and delivers the dialogue and all music and effects cleanly. Lots of extra features including deleted scenes and feature length director's commentary.
