A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.

A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.

Before I continue this review, I just want to warn anyone with photosensitive epilepsy not to watch this movie. Honestly, no-one should watch this movie, but there is a long sequence in this move where the screen flashes colors rapidly. I'm not even someone who is easily bothered by flashing lights, and that sequence hurt my eyes. Plot - This movie is really boring. Honestly I was hoping that it would be so stupid that it becomes funny (like the first movie) but at no point does it get to that level of ridiculousness. There are several pointless subplots (like the romance) that only seem to be in this movie to waste time. The only scenes that I kind of liked were a few of the scenes with Spider-Man, but even then they were kind of dumb. I'm glad that this franchise ended. Every other version of Spider-Man that I've seen so far is so much better in nearly every way. I know a lot of people didn't like "Spider-Man 3" but at least that movie had believable effects and a coherent story.Effects - This movie has pretty terrible effects. Electro never reaches the same level of goofiness as The Lizard, but he's still bad. Unfortunately, all the bad acting, action, and effects in this movie end up just being really dull as opposed to funny. Again, the action is really bad. I'm pretty sure that nearly everything in the fights is CG and it looks really bad. Acting - Like I said, most of the acting is pretty bad. I don't know if its the bad script, the bad direction, or if no-one cared. Probably all three. No-one in this movie gives a convincing performance.Overall this movie is the worst thing that a movie can be - boring. I'll give the first movie credit, it had me laughing. It was at the movie's stupidity, but at least the first movie was creative in how dumb it got. This sequel is just poorly made, cliched crap. Also, and I'm not even making this up, this movie put my little brother to sleep. He was fast asleep on the couch about an hour into it. That is how boring it is.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 features a very entertaining screenplay interlaced with energetic action sequences, vibrant & astonishing visual effects, epic cinematography apart from an easily likable screenplay. The film doesn't have a convoluted story. It's very neatly executed and the narration is very easy to follow. This film, in short, is a complete treat for any SPIDER-MAN fan.There's always a lot going on in the film, and the director avoids usage of pointless subplots, which makes each and every sequence integral to the story. There are a lot of touching moments as well. For instance, one brief scene in which Spidey walks along with a young boy is bound to stay with me forever. It made him so lovable and kind that I found it to be one of the best moments in the film. Similarly, the way his web has been shown in slow motion, in one sequence is simply heartwarming.The action is really entertaining. Every action sequence dazzles, and the sprinkling of CGI on it makes it much more fun. The web-slinging sequences have been shot extremely well. The story is very simple and straightforward. Every single performance is remarkable, especially that of Andrew and Emma, while other actors also put up decent acts. The final shot is quite energetic and concludes the film on an epic note. Last but not the least, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is simply an entertaining superhero movie which has loads of entertainment and light hearted fun.

This follow up to the Andrew Garfield-starring reboot of the SPIDER-MAN franchise is marginally better than its predecessor, but that really isn't saying much. This is another overblown, bloated, and unappealing mess of a movie, with a ridiculously overlong running time at two and a half hours. It just goes on and on and on, through the same old plot scenarios (the Green Goblin AGAIN?) and cheesy romance already witnessed in the Sam Raimi trilogy, and failing to add anything new whatsoever. Okay, so the CGI web-slinging scenes are better, but the film is still light and superficial and doesn't even try to connect on an emotional level. Garfield is stuck playing an immature character and the rest of the cast aren't much better. This film is at its best in the energetic opening and closing sequences, both starring a cameoing Paul Giamatti, and in the scenes involving Jamie Foxx's entertaining villain. The rest is merely mundane, and the 3D effects are completely uninspiring too.
