The Amazing spider man made no sense to me it doesn't follow the story of the first Spiderman series. The movie was confusing they are two very different take on the spider man Very confusing.

I still don't think this movie needed to be made, but I honestly didn't care so long as it was a good film; The Amazing Spider-Man is a good film. Sure, it covers some familiar territory, but it also adds/changes some aspects of the story which is much appreciated; it stands on its own and is more than capable of sustaining another franchise for a while longer. Andrew Garfield is a very solid and likable Peter/Spider-Man (as well as a solid actor), and Emma Stone is great as well; their fantastic chemistry is what drives this film. Rhys Ifans is an adequate villain, but he's underwhelming to say the least. I look forward to the sequel and potential future Marvel collaborations.

Watch the original instead!

Just go watch the first Spider-Man (2002, Tobey Maguire) movie and save yourself the trouble. Peter Parker, a good guy who stands up for bully-bait, gets bitten by a radioactive spider and becomes a dude with super powers. After his uncle dies, he becomes obsessed with revenge, and eventually starts fighting the Lizard for some reason.

If you've seen a handful of superhero films, then this movie will feel a lot like the ones you didn't like. The villain is introduced in a way that screams that he is a villain, and then there is a twenty minute song-and-dance in which you are led to believe he's a well-intentioned scientist. After he transforms into the Lizard, he stops making sense, and starts going through the typical villain motions of causing trouble for Spider-Man to convenient...

Fantastic reboot!

When i first heard that yet another director's vison on the whole Spiderman story was in production i felt...yawnnnnn.. Spiderman being my fave of all superheros ever since i can remember makes me more partial to these films and having seen all the Sam Raimi trilogy...needless to say i figured Hollyweird had done it's course and had no interest in seeing it all over again. That's when, upon the release of director Marc Webb's vision, i started hearing a buzz on the internet about this updated project. Finally sat down and had a look at the film and it was damn impressive... Sam Raimi who?.. What we got here could be quite similar to the fame director Chris Nolan with his revamps on the Batman saga. More realism..better script...better cast. Missing in this however is any Daily Bugle ac...

Pleasantly surprised!

This reboot attempts to explain the disappearance of Peter Parker's parents, his father's scientific findings and the quest to decipher Peter's past. The plot follows Peter, a 17 year old (played by Andrew Garfield) who has a terrible life. Abandoned by his parents under mysterious circumstances, Peter was raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. In high school, he grapples with finding his sense of identity and is a victim of bullies.

Peter stumbles upon his father's old briefcase filled with complex formulas that lead him to an old colleague of his father's, Dr. Curt Connors, now a top scientist at OsCorp. Connors' focus is on splicing reptile DNA and its properties with human one, which works to regenerate the human body; which he hopes will produce "a world without weakness", a perso...

He's not big enough, but I'm kind of hoping Kingpin shows up. I just hope they pick someone new - even if Green Goblin seems like the obvious choice.
