Description

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. 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.

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..."
