For Peter Parker, life is busy. Between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen Stacy, high school graduation cannot come quickly enough. Peter has not forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away, but that is a promise he cannot keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Spidey, He Hasn't Been Good In a While
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker is struggling with his role as super hero, his ability to love Gwen and keep her out of danger. His foes are aplenty, with Electro, The Green Goblin and Rhino all gunning for him. How will he be able to keep New York safe with these baddies out there as well as keep the love of his life out of danger?
Honestly, the answer is paved with a lot of disappointingly campy moments. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 takes a pretty big step backwards here, and really reminded me of Sam Raimi's mistake that was Spider-Man 3.
Sony really needs to get things back on track with the wall crawler. In many individuals eyes, he is the greatest superhero there is. If his films continue to end up like this, it may be a tough job to right the ship. More importantly, his movies may not get the green light.
