The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Digital Fix
5 September 2014
  • Summary: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has some entertainment value thanks to the central duo of Garfield and Stone and the glorious evocation of the motormouthed comic book Spider-Man but it’s empty at its core, burdened with an uneven script and hamstrung by Sony’s constant dithering over what to do with the story. Truth be told, it’s simply not good enough when compared to the likes of Marvel’s most recent output.

  • Conclusion: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does not put an end to comparisons to the Sam Raimi trilogy nor does it quiet questions over the wisdom of Sony's hasty reboot. Still, it's slightly better than its predecessor and if only average as far as superhero movies go, this still manages to provide an entertaining time with bold characters, impressive visuals, and fun escapism.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: Many aren't down with Webb's vision of Spider-Man, but I am. The way he treats the characters, tip-toes through their relationships, and isn't afraid to change up what's perceived as comfortable creates a satisfying unknown. Something that is sorely missing in the Disney/Marvel ‘Avengers' storyline. With demo-worthy audio and video, and a truckload of special features, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2' is highly recommended viewing.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

BluRay Authority
14 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I read the other day where there are going to be 40 new super hero movies in the next five years. Forty! Now that’s a lot of worlds to save and so little time to do it. And I honestly don’t think that Marvel creator Stan Lee will rest until he’s had a cameo in each and every one of them. Ok, not all of these super hero movies will be the ever-expanding Marvel universe, but a great deal of them will be. But let’s get back to basics, shall we?  Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

DVD Talk
13 August 2014
  • Conclusion: There is a lot going on in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 , which suffers from villain bloat and some narrative shortcomings. Even so, the film is buoyed by strong performances from Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, and supporting actors Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan are enjoyable. A lot of the conflict here is meant to set up Sinister Six , which is fine, but I hope the next outing focuses a bit more on its own story.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 3D Blu-ray Review

11 August 2014
  • Conclusion: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 should have been so much more. Even if it was two hours of the same song-and-dance but punctuated with the first end rather than ruined by the second end, it would have made every last oozing bit of repetition worthwhile in hopes that the next movie might have been the truly spectacular one, not another clone.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Blu-ray Review)

11 August 2014
  • Conclusion: I don’t know about all of you, but I cannot wait for the day when we can have a Spider-Man film franchise that doesn’t try to relate everything wrong in Spidey’s life to his family or Oscorp.  Aren’t there other bad people/villains in the world that don’t fit into this mold?  However, I digress again because we are not here so you can listen to me voice my inconsequential complaints.

Expert Review

Mania
13 June 2014
  • Excerpt: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 features a serious spoiler that’s been haunting me. Most fans suspect a moment that more casual viewers may not be aware of, and said moment is very important to the fabric of the film.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

ComingSoon
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: There's something distinct about the tone of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in the same way that "The Avengers" feels like a comic book made flesh, Marc Webb's Spider-verse feels like a live-action Saturday Morning Cartoon.
