‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ review: a step in the wrong direction

If the last decade saw superhero movies edging towards the overwrought and self-important, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may go too far in returning them to their silly, comic-bookish origins. While an improvement over its 2012 predecessor, director Marc Webb’s follow-up is populated with fan service and franchise bait, but leaves its actors — and the audience — foraging for anything resembling a human connection. Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker, a high school senior who’s late for his own graduation, including the commencement speech of his girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). It’s all because of his responsibilities as Spider-Man, which in this case include stopping Russian mobster Aleksei Systsevich (Paul Giamatti) from stealing vials of something or other.
