Movie review: 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

"The Occasionally Amazing Spider-Man 2" might be a better way to think of the not-always-spectacular but sometimes satisfying Spider-Man sequel as it sprawls, brawls and wall-crawls over New York City.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone remain the best things about the reimagined superhero franchise, even better in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" than they were in the original 2012 reboot. As Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy/budding beauty and biochemist, the actors bring much more than their considerable and much-teased offscreen chemistry.

Garfield gives Peter a touching sensitivity and Spidey the playful wryness the Marvel Comics creators first...
