The Amazing Spider-Man 2012


The Amazing Spider-Man

What's it about:
A reboot, or a re-telling of the infamous Spider-Man. We once again find ourselves revisiting the origins of this web shooting superhero this time with a little bit more on th accurate side.

Andrew Garfield is the one that portrays Spidey and despite a little inconsistency with his hairdo, he was quite a convincing Peter Parker. Peter Parker's first love interest Gwen Stacy gave the perfect symbol for loving but not being to have that love.

The story is about Spider-Man's origins and how he came to realize that his power is more than just fun & games, but he had to find out the hard and painful way. 

What I would say about it:
I would say the movie did some justice to Spider-Man, the whole plot had the same flow from the first Spider-Man movie but the story had a darker tone, a more mature take on the web crawler and of course, the real Spidey gear and a very impressive looking " unitar" 

Some would have preferred the first Spider-Man with Tobey Mcguire but this reboot brings us closer to the dark side of Spider-Man and leaving us with much more room of anticipating a sequel.

I am very curious to see how the Amazing Spider-Man is going to engage the later villains as the comic version of Spider-Man is pretty intense, I would really love to see the arc where he turns into a fully mutated Spider.

I am satisfied with how the whole movie turned out, the plot was similar but provided a different out take for possible future sequels that won't feel as cliche. The Spider Gear was very much awesome

The lizard however was a little disappointing, the body was nice but the face was very much humanoid, so that sucked. The lizard i was hoping for should really look like a lizard.

There was also a scene where the Spidey left his camera around after a fight resulting in the exposure of his identity to the Lizard, perhaps it's because he is still a rookie brat.

One funny thing:
There was a scene that resembled a very well known dialogue and action in another movie between the lizard and Spidey that my gf and I literary Laugh Out Loud, see if you can spot it :)

Rating: 3/5

Critic Mode:
"The Amazing Spider-Man went above my lowered expectation and gave me a reason to love the live action Spidey once again, looking forward to how the dark past of Spider-Man's past unfold in the possible sequels. Spider-Man was never a happily ever after comic. "benjaminfoo of

Same rating and thoughts. But I think they tried to make the lizard seem more gritty, which wouldn't make sense since it has a tail lol. The Amazing Spider-Man

Mary Jane would later become his wife in the comic book universe, but Gwen Stacy was another love interest of him, you can say that she was his first crush.

Actually the funny part was when the lizard grab him at the neck and said " poor peter parker, you have no mother, no father. blah blah" These scene actually resembles Harry Potter Deathly Hollows part 2, where Voldemort said the same thing to harry about not having parent. (note that the lizard oso does not have a visible nose)
