spider2001 added a movie review.
Compared to "The Amazing Spider-Man" this film felt like a let down. I personally loved the first installment, and it is still my favorite Spider-Man movie to date. So of course, I was very excited to see this movie. However, quite honestly, I came out of this movie back in 2014 a bit disappointed. The first movie balanced all it's characters really well, and I was interested in pretty much everything going on. With this one, I honestly felt that they were too worried about setting up a bigger universe that they forgot to make a really good movie. Now, don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this movie, and I do own it, but compared to the first one, it just felt like it took a step down in quality. Also, I cannot stand it when movies set up for a sequel and leave you on a HUGE cliffhanger, and then for whatever reason another movie isn't made. It drives me crazy. That's exactly what happened here. While the Amazing Spider-Man 2 did okay in the Box Office world wide, Sony decided, for various different reasons, to discontinue the series and add a different version to Spider-Man to the MCU. While I am perfectly fine with Tom Holland's new Spider- Man, I would've liked to see where this universe could go. And I did not think it was fare to end this series with this movie. Overall, I didn't hate this movie. I very much enjoyed the fight sequences, especially the one with Electro in Times Square. But honestly, the movie was lacking something that the first one did so well. So in the long run, I did not like this one as well as the first one.
