QUICK TAKE:
Action: A genetically enhanced superhero must contend with a new array of villains, all while trying to sort out his feelings toward his girlfriend who might be leaving him.
PLOT:
Having previously saved New York City from a genetic hybrid monster, teenager Peter Parker (ANDREW GARFIELD) continues to moonlight as the superhero Spider-Man, thanks to superhuman powers he gained following being bitten by a genetically altered spider. With webs that spurt forth from contraptions on his wrists, Peter/Spider-Man is able to swing through the city on long strings of web, all while stopping most of the city's criminals. In his downtime, he still lives with his Aunt May (SALLY FIELD) and is graduating from high school along with fellow classmate and current girlfriend, Gwen Stacy (EMMA STONE).

She works at Oscorp Industries, a large corporation that has its hands in various fields, including experimental genetic research. Its new leader is Peter's former childhood friend, Harry Osborn (DANE DeHAAN), who's inherited the company from his father who's recently passed, much to the chagrin of Oscorp's board, including its chairman, Donald Menken (COLM FEORE).

Like Peter, Harry was abandoned by his parents as a boy and thus carries around that emotional baggage, something that may or may not have also happened to Max Dillon (JAIME FOXX). He's an electrical engineer at Oscorp and a delusional one at that, an otherwise invisible to most man who believes that Spider-Man is his best friend. He ends up the victim of an unfortunate accident at work that transforms his body into that of a highly charged, electrical being known as Electro, a development that Peter senses can't be a good thing.

That worsens when Electro comes to believe that Spider-Man is his archenemy, which becomes yet another reason for Peter to feel guilty about Gwen's late father, Capt. Stacy (DENIS LEARY), telling the teen to stay away from his daughter. As Peter contends with that and Electro, he must also deal with Harry -- who's suffering from a genetic disorder that will soon kill him -- experimenting on himself, thus resulting in him turning into the villainous Green Goblin.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
