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'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.
When Sony Pictures decided to reboot the Spider-Man franchise, I wondered if there really was a need for it considering that not much time had passed since Spider-Man 3 came out & overall, this franchise hadn't fared as worse as others to justify a reboot. Anyway, moving on... The Amazing Spider-Man tries to bring on screen the story of our friendly neighbourhood from its origins. Everyone must already be aware of the premise but in case you're not, it tells the story of Peter Parker & how he became Spider-Man. Also, an ugly & stupid villain is thrown in here who unintentionally turned out to be more funny than scary.
Director Marc Webb tries very hard to take this movie away from Sam…
This movie was cool I don't understand so much hate, the lizard was cool and the fight scenes were great but I have to admit that Andrew Garfiel wasn't a really good Peter Parker but the spiderman suit was awesome.

The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of the 2002-2007 Spider-Man trilogy and the second motion picture release from director Marc Webb of 500 Days of Summer fame, follows high school outcast Peter Parker as he discovers secrets behind the mystery of his parents' disappearance and, consequently, acquires super-human abilities that lead him to become New York's web-slinging defender and the prime target for a villain on the rise.
In his 2012 re-imagining, Parker (Andrew Garfield) has turned into a bit of a skate rat--his low-rise skinny jeans and trusty board in tow--who still, apparently, has a knack for science and fancies fellow student Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), the police captain's daughter. Stone's portrayal of Spidey's first love interest is much more…
IMDb Ratings: 7.1
Why: Reboot to Sam Raimi Spiderman adaptation
Should: yes coz its better
My Ratings: 9 - #Amazing
Tagline: His past was kept from him. His search for answers has just begun.
Bonus: Andrew Garfield took on spiderman is better. More funnier more spidermany
I kinda like Andrew Garfield, but do we really need another Spiderman film?
For 2 hours plus minutes? This film was a little too long for me. Andrew Garfield did a decent job yet it just wasn't quite there. With great powers come great responsibilities? They say? well, this film came with a little bit of power and no one seems to care about this installment.
It was a good movie. Andrew Garfield was awkwardly cute, so that worked out perfectly for his portrayal of Peter Parker. The bad guy was a little weird though and not too interesting either. As for the plot, well it was like any other superhero movie, so there isn't much to say about that. It was still a good movie though.
After watching it again, I was able to conclude that it was a good movie.

The Amazing Spider Man 2012 is directed by Marc Webb and stars Andrew Gafield Emma Stone Dennis Leary and Rhys Ifhans. So after a lot of people hated Spider Man 3, number 4 was scraped and they hit the reboot button and 5 years later in 2012 we got the Amazing Spider Man. A lot of people hate film and I don't know why because I really like this film it ain't amazing lol pun intended, but it's still in my opinion a good film. Andrew Gafield and Emma stone are great in the film and had really great chemistry on and of set, Rhys Ifhans was pretty good as doctor Connors and the Lizard but he isn't the best…
