Review Round-Up: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Swings Into Theaters

The eagerly-awaited sequel, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 opens in theaters nationwide today. In this comic book action movie, Spidey, played by Broadway alum Andrew Garfield faces a multitude of extraordinary challenges.

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).

But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Let's see what the critics had to say:

Manohla Dargis | New York Times

"As played by Emma Stone, who has the zing of a screwball heroine and the depthless eyes of an anime character, Gwen brightens THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, a sequel that, until a late, lamentably foolish turn, balances blockbuster bombast with human-scale drama, child-friendly comedy and gushers of tears."

Betsy Sharkey | Los Angeles Times

"THE OCCASIONALLY AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 might be a better way to think of the not-always-spectacular but sometimes satisfying Spider-Man sequel as it sprawls, brawls and wall-crawls over New York City." To read the full review, click here.

Claudia Puig | USA Today

"A more emotionally vulnerable and brooding web-slinger is at the heart of the re-tooled franchise in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. But that doesn't mean Spidey isn't also full of giddy energy." To read the full review, click here.
