The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 142 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Marc Webb
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan

Peter Parker (Garfield) goes up against new supervillains Electro (Foxx) and Harry Osborn (DeHaan). Garfield and Stone have enormous chemistry, Foxx and DeHaan bring complexity and pathos, and the rebooted franchise continues to capture the original character's wise-cracking energy in a way that the Raimi trilogy didn't.

  • Written by: Michael Petroni
  • Cast: Sophie Nélisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Roger Allam

Liesel (Nelisse) is a German schoolgirl growing up under the Nazi regime, who begins to steal books whenever the opportunity arises. Percival's adaptation of Zusak's best seller is at its best exploring the relationship between Liesel and her foster parents (Rush and Watson), but other elements, such as a voice-over from Death himself, are less successful.

The Odeon Leicester Square bills itself as 'Europe's premiere cinema' and it's true in more than one way; the largest single-screen cinema in the UK is also the flagship of the entire Odeon chain, and the venue for numerous European and world film premieres. A towering monument of polished black granite dating from 1937, it dominates Leicester Square and its 1683-seat auditorium is fully equipped to show 35mm, 70mm and digital films.

Next door are the Odeon Studios, five much smaller screens. All the screens have wheelchair spaces although, paradoxically, studios 2–5 don't have wheelchair access. Audio description and subtitled performances are available for selected screenings.

Leicester Square is a pedestrian space and the nearest car parks are in Whitcomb Street or Chinatown Car Park in Newport Place. Tube: Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Rail: Charing Cross Station is about 10 minutes away on foot.
