The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the much anticipated sequel to the 2012 blockbuster. It delivers twice the thrills and mayhem, as super-villains Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) attack Spider-Man.
Andrew Garfield reprises his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, who continues to be torn between his mortal and superhero status, whilst his crime-fighting is being publicly scrutinised.
The truth behind the disappearance of Peter Parker’s parents is finally revealed and poignant scenes with Aunt May (Sally Field) offer relief from the explosive action sequences. Storylines involving love interest Gwen (Emma Stone) may also shock some viewers.
The CGI which is becoming more exhilarating and ambitious as the comic book franchise continues, fuels the pumping adrenalin, delivering what can only be described as wondrous escapism at its best. (MM)
