Synopsis


The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The web-slingin' wall-crawler hits the screens once again in this follow-up to Marc Webb's 2012 reboot of the series. Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker, who squares off against the villainous Electro, played by Jamie Foxx. As the film opens, we find Richard (Campbell Scott) and Mary Parker (Embeth Davitz) stealing away with some crucial Oscorp files while leaving young Peter in the care of Aunt May (Sally Field) and Uncle Ben. Flash forward about a decade, and Peter (Garfield) is swinging into action as Spider-Man; having successfully thwarted the hijacking of an Oscorp truck by notorious Russian criminal Aleksei Sytsevich (Paul Giamatti), Peter ditches the costume just in time to meet up with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) at their high school graduation. Despite his deep love for Emma, however, Peter remains haunted by his promise to her late father not to get emotionally involved with her for fear that she could be targeted by Spider-Man's enemies. Meanwhile, young Harry Osborne (Dane DeHaan) inherits OsCorp and a deadly retrovirus from his father Norman (Chris Cooper), and brilliant but timid OsCorp scientist Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) gets infused with a powerful dose of electricity while attempting to fix a faulty power circuit in the lab. Upon regaining consciousness, Max discovers that he has the power to harness electrical currents - the higher the voltage the more powerful he becomes. When a battle with Max in Times Square shorts out Spidey's web-shooters, Peter goes to work on developing a more reliable model of his signature weapon while Harry grows convinced that Spider-Man's blood is the key to his survival. Later, villainous OsCorp chairman Donald Menken (Colm Feore) steals the company out right out from under Harry, driving the vengeful youth to break Max -- now Electro -- out of the heavily-guarded Ravencroft Institute for a two-pronged attack on Menken and Spider-Man. The stage for that battle is set when New York City goes dark just as Peter declares his love to Gwen, plunging the wise-cracking web-slinger into a fight that could forever alter the course of his life. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    Cool Case

    The movie is awesome, of course. I decided to go with this version because I thought my son would enjoy the little comic book that came with it. The comic book is obviously smaller in size, since it comes inside the movie's case, and this is a standard blu-ray-sized case. The comic covers Max's story and stops when Spidey first defeats him with the fire hose. The artwork is nice, and my four-year-old son enjoys it. I'm really happy I bought this version, because the case is just really cool looking. It's very shiny. It folds up, but unlike other cases I've had that fold and then have a cover over them, this one uses magnets to keep it closed and therefore doesn't need a slipcover.

    Great movie & a stunning early 4k disc

    This is not your typical mindless superhero flick. It certainly has plenty of great web-slinging action and some cool villains in Electro and the Green Goblin. But it has a heart as well, with the tension between Peter Parker/Spidey (very humorously played by Andrew Garfield) & his love Gwen (played again by the endearing Emma Stone) giving the film emotional weight. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but the fights are awesome and the ending is surprising. Andrew Garfield brings a very human quality to the role, being very serious about his relationship with Gwen and loved ones, yet also delivering a good number of humorous lines. Really well done overall with great effects, surprisingly strong acting & a story filled with unexpected emotional weight for a film of this genre. As for the 4k disc, this is simply a must-own early 4k release, not just for the high quality of the film. A.S. 2 was shot on regular film versus digitally, and this resulting 4k Ultra HD disc with HDR from Sony (long regarded by many video experts as the studio that produces the highest-quality dvd and blu-ray disc transfers available, & I would tend to agree) is visually stunning beyond words. Skin and clothing textures are rendered with unbelievably sharp detail. Flesh tones are true-to-life and the colors (notably the reds and blues in Spidey's suit) are extraordinary vibrant. The HDR encoding (short for High Dynamic Range, meant for super/enhanced UHD or OLED 4k tvs with HDR capability) yields virtually limitless contrast, with super-bright whites and the deepest blacks a television could hope to produce. (So bright you may actually want to lower the  backlighting and slightly reduce the contrast just a bit if you watch this in a darkened room). Simply put, this is definite demo-worthy 4k video. As for the sound, If you have an advanced audio system, prepare to be wowed! The 7.1/ Dolby Atmos enabled soundtrack is equally impressive, with room rattling bass and super-immersive use of the surround speakers. TV speakers and even the best sound bar available will not even begin to do this soundtrack justice. (By the way, the only way to get REAL, true surround sound is by not cutting corners and doing it the right way with at least a halfway decent multichannel amp and 5.1 speakers.) All told, both for the stellar content and the flawless video/audio presentation, this disc really delivers the 4k home theater goods.

    Better than the first, but still sub-par

    Not sure what happened when Sony decided to reboot Spider-man, but it just hasn't felt like it has worked. Still, this film is a big improvement on the first. The pacing is far better and the story more interesting, and it does serve as a decent book-end to this series now that it is ending, even as it leaves some dangling threads. Expect a far more watchable film, but still wonder how Sony screwed up enough to feel that they needed to move on from Tobey Maguire.

    I thought this installment was in line with most 2nd in a trilogy movies. It addressed more of Peter's growing into his role and introduced a number of subplots and future villains. Also took a darker side as didn't the first movie. Hate to see where Sony has delayed the next one.

    This is another great Spider-man movie, fun, entertaining, & the special effects were out of this world. Andrew Garfield played the Spider-man character exactly true to the Marvel comic book character, which is why he is always kidding around, cracking jokes, confident, & swing widely just as truly as Spider-man would. This is a contrast between him and Tobey McGuire in the original Spider-man trilogy, because that Spider-man was dull, resentful, lacked humor, & always lacked self-confidence.
