The Amazing Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field) in Theatres on June 29, 2012

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Rating: 2.5/5
Review: Honestly, I didn't like the character of the new Spiderman much - he is playful, rash, irresponsible. To me, not a hero at all but just a typical boy next door. Though I loved the scene where Stan Lee showed up... epic!
Comment: A movie I'm definitely going to watch on the big screen! It's awesome that there are scenes wherein you could feel like you're Spider-Man since it's shot on his perspective. Can't wait when it swings to theatres real soon...

"A well-chosen cast and sure-handed direction allow The Amazing Spider-Man to thrill, despite revisiting many of the same plot points from 2002's Spider-Man." - rottentomatoes.com

"The Amazing Spider-Man is at least better than Raimi's Spider-Man 3, which was a mess." - Peter Howell, Toronto Star

"At 28, Garfield's slightly older than Maguire was when he played Peter Parker in 2002, but his combination of fresh-faced innocence, nervous agitation and wry humor is immediately appealing." - Tom Charity, CNN.com

"I don't really see why the Spidey reboot was needed right now, but The Amazing Spider-Man has its virtues. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are stellar and director Marc Webb has crafted a Spider-Man that touches the heart." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"If you've seen half a dozen superhero films, and the box office results suggest you have, then you've also seen what "The Amazing Spider-Man" has to offer." - Laremy Legel, film.com

"How amazing can it be? We all just saw this movie when "Spider-Man" came out a decade ago." - Tom Long, Detroit News

"With great stories come great responsibilities. This one doesn't measure up." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

Movie Info

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
