The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.


otsoNY Comments: The car-chase scene was shot in many locations, and for anyone familiar with New York, noticable areas were easily recognisable such as 8th Avenue, Chinatown and even Plymouth Street in Brooklyn. However, what was not so familiar was this segment of scenes, all of which were shot 360 miles away in Rochester.
