9.1/10.While this one does seem crammed with villains it's still solid.It does a decent job with Electro as Jamie Foxx is pretty decent here as is Paul Giamatti as The Rhino.The one that stood out was Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn/The Green Goblin.He's never called that but it's obvious.The suit was pretty good along with the way he gets it.Andrew Garfield still delivers here, seems quite focused as Spider-Man.The main problem, I felt, was Emma Stone.She seemed to be phoning it in as if bored.Gwen is now possessive of Peter like she was in the comics which always bothered me.I felt they shouldn't have done this as we know what happens in these movies with that kind of attitude.Her death scene seemed just like the comics only as least we see her look of sadness whereas in the comic she was unconscious.The sequel may not have been as good as its predecessor it's far from being bad or terrible.

Continuity mistake: During the battle with Green Goblin, when Gwen Stacy is falling through the clock tower, there are dozens of gears and other pieces of various sizes falling with her. However, when she lands, only a few small gears and pieces land alongside her - all the other debris that were falling have seemingly vanished. (02:01:20)

Suggested correction: That part of the scene is SO dark that it's really hard to tell; they do show some gears and pieces land after she does and there are some gears and pieces next to her when he walks to her. I wouldn't say there's none, but I'd say it does seem a disproportionately low amount considering how many giant gears were falling.

Given that even you admit in your correction that the number of gears seems disproportionately low (which it is - we only see a few small pieces landing when there were dozens and dozens of pieces in different sizes falling), I think amending the wording through a word-change is a better option than trying to correct the mistake itself. Because there is still a mistake here. Going to go ahead and do that after I post this response. (Might take a few days to change, though).

I absolutely agree and I'll delete the comment (s) when the mistake is reworded, since as we say, it is a valid mistake.

I submitted a word change yesterday, but given that it's not a mistake I submitted, it might take a few days to apply. :).

Trivia: SPOILER: At the end of the clock tower scene, there is an exterior shot, where the time is 1:21. It is in issue #121 of the original Amazing Spider-Man comic from the 1970's where Gwen died due to the Green Goblin.

More trivia for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Question: The is something that I didn't understand in the movie. Spiderman killed Electro, which is something completely out of character. What was Marc Webb thinking?

Answer: Peter didn't set out to kill Electro, but he has to stop him somehow. Overloading him is pretty much all Peter has to work with in terms of stopping Electro's rampage. He doesn't know what effect it will have on his opponent, but he hopes that it will serve to stop him in his tracks, which it does. Had Peter set out with the specific intention of killing Max, that would indeed have been wildly out of character, but he didn't - he simply did what he had to do to stop him. It's unlikely that Max is actually dead anyway; it's well known that Sony intend to bring the Sinister Six into play in upcoming movies and Electro has been a key member of most incarnations of that team, making it highly likely that he'll be back.
