‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ overloaded, but still improved

Movie Review

(Continued) —

Another thing I might note is that this film actually does a better job of rewarding the comic book superfans who are super familiar with who Peter versus the original trilogy. At certain points it feels more like a cliff hanger from a television show season finale than a movie and maybe that helps take the edge off the feeling that it is missing something that could have taken it even further.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way Spiderman can catch up with something like the refreshed X-Men universe or the Avengers is if the corporate overlords in the competing studios somehow find a way to invite him in. That said, it did make for a good night out and I might even watch it again to see what I missed. In the end, it’s worth four out of five victories for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
