REEL DEAL: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 REVIEW

This movie premiered in the Philippines on my birthday April 30 which many marvel films also make their opening day in the country. Though I was not able to see it on my actual birthday, I am happy to see one of the most successful comic book movie franchise.

Though I am a big fan of the previous trilogy, I love the sequel of this reboot more than the first one.  With the new story focusing on Peter Parker's history and his early years, including his first love Gwen Stacy. 

The sequel brings the mystery behind Peter's parents who were associated with OSCORP which has been linked to the enemies of spidey. The movie is also brings three villains like Electro, Green Goblin and Rhino into a single movie. Expect a lot of action and explosions with this sequel as action scenes become more intense and moving with the fast paced fighting. I felt so disturbed and amazed at the same time which made me want to see the next movie now!

TIP: There is a bonus mid-credit easter egg scene in the movie so do not leave yet.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also stars Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 now showing in cinemas! Distributed by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures.
