Marc Webb’s superhero sequel “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is overstuffed with plot lines, set pieces and villains.
Here is what critics have to say:
“‘The Occasionally Amazing Spider-Man 2′ might be a better way to think of the not-always-spectacular but sometimes satisfying Spider-Man sequel.” (That’s the problem with superlatives in titles — they’re asking for trouble.) Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone remain the best things about the reimagined superhero franchise.” – Betsy Sharkey, The Times.
“ASM2 is a strenuously chipper but nonetheless saggy, baggy and mostly ho-hum addition to the Spider-Man canon. Granted, there are at least two genuinely breathtaking set pieces to be admired here …. But those moments are nearly lost within an unforgivably long assemblage that never coalesces into a compelling story.” – Anna Hornaday, Washington Post.
“Spider-Man 2’ differentiates itself by injecting shaggy mumblecore naturalism into the veins of its pop-Wagnerian genre. The transformation doesn’t take … but points for trying. And it definitely counts as an improvement over 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man whose chief distinction was that it was the sloppiest, least inspired, most cynical franchise reboot ever.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
