The Amazing Spider-Man
The untold story begins.
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…
Secondo me il terzo della trilogia di Raimi era peggio di questo, così come gli altri due gli erano terribilmente superiori. In ogni caso, senza paragoni, rimane un film insipido, una macchietta, dove la cosa più bella rimane Emma Stone. Richard Garfield prima mi stava più simpatico.
After the mess that was spider man 3 Sony rebooted 5 years later and The Amazing spider man came to be. Right of the bat im gonna say it, i really like this film, sure it is not a perfect film but it is still good.
1: Too early to be made
2: villain was very weak
3: Actors who played the high school kids look too old to be high school kids.
1: Andrew Garfield was amazing as spider man
2: Emma Stone was great as Gwen Stacy and actually did things unlike someone.
3: The action was great to watch.
4: The CGI and special effects were amazing:
5: Spider Man looked perfect swinging…
I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. I did not expect much from it but it was really well done and the story was good. It did not feel corny or like they were just trying to get some money out of a big name franchise or anything. Easily makes me want to watch the next movie. *3
garfield is an amazing spiderman but this reboot was too soon and missing the cast that made up the 2002 version.
One of the best spidey movies, with a beautiful soundtrack and a stupendous cast.
peter parker and gwen stacy uwu
mycroft holmes is the lizard im laughing
stan lee as the school librarian is just yep same as always
The amazing Spider-Man is probably the most bland uninteresting superhero film I've seen in a while, it reminds me of iron man 2 and the Expendables 3. Peter Parker in this movie is unlike able, the action is ok, the villain is stupid, and some dialogue is just horrendous. Overall, the amazing Spider-Man is how not to make a Spider-Man movie.
Actually liked this movie. Gritty reboot, new villain, and a sleek new suit. Though Garfield made a good Spiderman, his Peter Parker was a little too slick.
Complete list. :-(
