Not a bad effort on the whole but not as 'amazing' as the first one. Main faults are going more cheesy, predictable and on occasion overly ridiculous than one can expect from a comic book flick. The novelty of the first instalment is definitely gone. 

No epic crane jumping here but had a few cool jumping/flying/falling ones. The whole electricity theme - visually, in terms of dialogue and especially musically - was completely lost on me.

Andrew Garfield is still good and consistent and I don't have much to say against Emma Stone. I will never get casting decisions like Jamie Foxx playing a pathetic lonely guy - why not just get someone who initially looks the part? It's like Charlize Theron in Monster. Guess people pay for names. 

I quite liked Marton Csokas in his small but cool part as the evil doctor Kafka. And the Dane DeHaan bloke is quite appropriate as Harry. Just realised he was in that recent Metallica film, poor kid...

Anyway, not the best Marvel film by far. Hope the third one picks up.
