Mini Review - The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (out Apr 17) is poor. Almost every subplot is underdeveloped. The villains are confusing with no real plans. Emma Stone, who had plenty to do in the 2012 reboot, feels like a token love interest this time around. It culminates with a big action finale that is just a mess of sound and visual effects (with an overuse of slow motion). A shame. Grade: C+.
