Study Break: Spider-Man 2 Movie Review

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane Dehaan and Jamie Foxx, opened in theaters Friday.

The sequel to “The Amazing Spider-Man” series picks up where the last one left off as Peter Parker, played by Garfield, continues to balance his personal life with the responsibilities that he has as Spider-Man.

Parker’s friend Max Dillon, played by Foxx, falls victim to being bit by genetically modified electric eels that turn him into the comic book villain known as Electro.

While “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” may seem a bit too lengthy at times, the movie has some great action scenes that are sure to entertain viewers, especially Spider-Man enthusiasts.

If you enjoy Spider-Man, comic books or action movies in general, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ is worth a trip to the movie theater.
