Peter Parker is an outcast high schooler was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. 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, 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.
There’s a scene in this movie where Peter Parker goes to see Dr. Curt Connors for some help catching a giant lizard. (Connors IS the giant lizard, but Peter doesn’t know that yet because some science prodigies are also really stupid.) Connors is in a foul mood because he’s slowly becoming a 10-foot-tall hellbeast, and he tells Peter he doesn’t have time to help him with his problem. He’s got a “new project” he’s working on and he needs “to be alone.” “If you’ll excuse me,” Connors continues, “I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask you to leave.”
He holds the door of his office to let Peter out, but then Connors is the one who actually leaves. He…
I got a lot of grief when this opened from Spider-Man fans for giving it a 2.5 star review.
I was WAY too generous.
Garfield and Stone do have legitimate chemistry. They're terrific together. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN does not make me excited for the sequel, but it does make me wish these two would star in an old school Tracy and Hepburn-style romantic comedy. That would be very interesting.
Y'know what's NOT interesting? This movie. It's ugly, sloppy, dumb, and slow, and a huge step down from all three of the Raimi movies (yes, even the third one). It's just one bad choice after another. There's a slo-mo skateboarding montage. There's characters who show up, do nothing, and vanish. (Irrfan Khan,…
I don't care what anyone says, this is my Spidey and I love it, warts and all.
Before I continue I feel the need to emphasise that I in no way factor in the debate about the necessity of a reboot this soon, nor will I compare them to Raimi's three films as I consider these factors irrelevant to my opinion of this film. Films should be judged in their own right, if they're good, they're good, if not, too bad.
This film has some problems that lie mainly within the script and the pacing. It tells the origin of Spider-Man well enough, but it skirts over some of the 'getting to know you power' bits too quickly. The focus…
Your father was a very secretive man, Peter.
I am in shock at how good this film was and at the decisions that were made in doing the reboot. Those decisions are what makes the film so good. I have to say that I think this film is better then the first Spider-Man. Was a reboot necessary? No, but who cares. I don't watch films because they are necessary, I watch them to be entertained.
The decisions made that surprised me is that the film probably has less action, less villains and less characters in general then Spider-Man 3. So obviously if all you want is more action and villains you're not going to like this much.
i can't believe the CFO of facebook fought that giant lizard
I'll remind you what happened. Richard Parker said just about the same thing then that you are saying now. The clock is ticking, Dr. Connors.
My original review can be read here.
This is the first time I've rewatched Amazing Spider-Man since seeing Life of Pi. I forgot that Irrfan Khan was in Amazing Spider-Man. I forgot that Peter Parker's father was named Richard. Every time Khan said "Richard Parker" I was looking for the tiger.
Finally got to watch "The Amazing Spider-Man"! I hate to admit (and to compare) that I actually enjoyed this way better than Tobey Maguire's. Perfect balance of heart, humor, and just campy fun.
Andrew Garfield was great
Andrew Garfield is my dad
This Is The Greatest And Most Entertaining Spider-Man Film I Have Ever Watched. This Was The Movie That Made Andrew Garfield Great To Me, And I Can't Wait To See How He Turned Out In Hacksaw Ridge. I Highly Recommend To The Original Spider-Man Film Fans.
seen at UA Westbury Stadium 12 (DCP)
the scene where peter skateboards/tests his powers in an abandoned warehouse after asking gwen out while coldplay plays in the background fills me with such inexplicable happiness.........i love this film so much
I liked it better when it was called Spider-Man. A juvenile attempt at film-making, which is fine since anyone over the age of 14 already saw this movie in 2002. Garfield and Stone are the only redeeming qualities, and even they aren't really an improvement over Maguire and Dunst. The cornball dialogue and clumsy attempts at humor are probably the most annoying aspects.
Edit: Did I like Andrew Garfield in this? I seem to remember him being pretty annoying...
