The Amazing Spider-Man 2 3D

Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker returns as Spider-Man in this sequel that adds two new superpowered foes: Paul Giamatti as The Rhino and Jamie Foxx as Electro. Director Marc Webb, stars Emma Stone, Martin Sheen and Sally Field all return.

For Parker (Garfield), there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and loving Gwen (Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price - the emergence of Electro (Foxx) sees Parker confront a foe far more powerful than he, and his old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns proving all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

I enjoyed the film, it did seem a little long for the story as it peters off toward the end. I enjoy Garfield as Spiderman he does well to appeal to the younger audience, it is a bit hard after having following Tobey Macguire as Spidey... None the less the story is tied together almost as well as spider man's webs. A great holiday flick for the kids and...

Webb’s affable sequel is tough to dislike despite its tonal whiplash and clumsy script.

A satisfying second issue with thrills, heartbreak, gasps, and a perfectly judged slingshot ending.
