The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero. — (C) Sony
RainCHECKS “The Amazing Spiderman”
“The world doesn’t need another Spiderman!” – this was the sentiment that I’ve heard from a lot of people before the film’s official showing date. There has been a lot of negative criticisms that I became even more interested to watch and make a review about it. The movie is a reboot of the ‘Sam Raimi” film version of the comic book series which starred Tobey Maguire as the web-slinger of three franchises. I have read a lot of Spider-man comic books and saw all the Spider-man Movies, animation and live action TV series, and honestly the new Spider-man plot is a more truthful adaptation.
Spider-man or Peter Parker can cling to most surfaces, has superhuman strength and more agile than a regular human. His spider-sense provides an early warning detection system linked with his superhuman kinesthetics, enabling him the ability to evade most any injury. - They got those part right with the last Spider-man franchises.
But Spidey doesn’t have the ability to shoot organic webs from his wrists like the ‘Sam Raimi’ movies suggests. Peter Parker actually designed and constructed a twin artificial web-shooters worn at the wrists.
In my opinion, Andrew Garfield gave a more stunning performance as Peter Parker aka Spider-man in the reboot. Maguire was good but Garfield was more genuine. The plot is a little dragging at times and I wished there were more hard-core action to match the seamless graphics though. Good job Marc Webb.
Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) you’re absolutely beautiful.
