Movie Synopsis of The Amazing Spider-Man 2
We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
Our Review of The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 brings movie-goers on an emotional roller-coaster ride so much so that you can almost feel the strong emotions and tragedy that Spider-Man has to go through while facing his toughest foe yet. Although we strongly dislike the sad ending, we were glad that the movie ended on a pretty inspirational note. We are definitely looking forward to the next sequel that will probably be released in 2016.

We will definitely recommend movie-goers to watch the movie in 3D because the 3D graphics and effects are extremely realistic. If you are booking your movie tickets in advance, be sure to choose the last 2 rows of seats in the center of the theatre for the best viewing experience.
Since the movie is set to be released on 1 May 2014 [Labour Day] in Singapore, you might probably want to organise a family-outing or a friends-gathering to the cinema and catch The Amazing Spider-Man 2. For the very emotional ones, do bring along a pack of tissue.
In case you're wondering whether there are any teasers/trailers after the movie credits, no, there aren't any; hence, you can leave the theatre right after the movie ends.
