Director Marc Webb creates a quintessential Spider-Man comic/movie adaptation, featuring multiple villains, love and romance and even tragic sorrow; unseen in a conventional Hollywood movie.

Starring Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) alongside Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx (Electro/Max Dillon), this new Marvel blockbuster looks to be the most promising yet.

The film begins with a high pursuit chase through the high rise building's of none other than New York City. Our web slinging hero rushing towards an injustice that needs to be corrected. Ironically enough the vigilante who is running from the law at the beginning of the film, happens to make an appearance right at the end as well, cladded in suit of metal armour; fuelling speculation that he is to appear in the sequel as the overwhelming block-headed villain Rhino.

The high speed chase concludes with Spider-Man literally catching his target, and making it back just in time to receive his graduation certificate and plant a passionate kiss on the lips of his girlfriend...a typical day for some.

I believe that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a very good sequel to the first installment in the new series. Fresh attempts at comedy, action and even special effects have proved to be quite significant in the delivery of this film, and it works; it's a formula that fits the personality of Peter Parker.

The fatal twist of the film that makes it different from many Hollywood films is the death of a key character (I won't say who). This decision seemed to have shifted the emotions many assume to feel when watching a typical Spider-Man film; consequently altering the overall opinion.

All in all I recommend watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2 simply because of the amount of action and villains it has on show including the electrifying Electro.
