Review – The Amazing Spider-man 2

After the first chapter of this Spider-man iteration, I was expecting something considerably better here. The villains leave a lot to be desired. Jamie Foxx makes a goofy, unfocused Electro, and the Green Goblin appears so late in the show that they might as well have saved him for the next sequel. But the real killer for me … and this is a major spoiler, so be warned … was the death of Gwen Stacy. I know she died in the original comics, but Emma Stone was a big part of why I picked this movie up to begin with. And though this is situational and subjective, I really wasn’t in the mood for a sad ending. Wrap this up differently, and it’s a fun action picture. As it stands, it’s a bummer. Mildly amusing
