Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors, his father's former partner
First off Sam Rami is a one trick pony, with little to no directing talent. All his films look the same. With that said I do not hold his Spiderman films in high regard like others do. I like them, don't get me wrong but that is primarily because of the performance of Tobey Maguire.
Amazing Spiderman is the new franchise from Marvel stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. This films follows The Ultimate Spiderman comics a little closer. Peter's parents are scientists who leave him with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May one night when they need to get out of town. They never come back.
Peter is a typical high school outsider. Quiet, smart, bullied you name it. He finds out his parents used to work with a scientist named Curt Conner's who is working with reptile DNA to use in a regeneration processes. See he's missing a hand.
When Peter goes to see him he gets bit by a radio active spider. You know the rest. Uncle gets killed he becomes spiderman and becomes the Wall Crawling Web Head who fights crime. Or in this case The Lizard. See Conner's uses the DNA treatment on his arm and mutates into a giant lizard who want to release lizard gas over NY.
Peter Parker is joined in his quest to save the city by Dennis Leary, who is just fantastic in everything he does in my opinion. Leary is Capt Stacey of the NYPD. TO complicate things Peter is seeing his daughter Gwen Stacy.
The film is fun, looks amazing, and in my opinion is far superior the the Rami films. I like how its slightly modernised. Like when Peter gets his powers he smacks Flash Thompson around for picking on him. Something I would do. My only complaint however is Andrew Garfield. He does a great job, but is way to pretty to be playing Peter Parker. Toby Maguire will always be Peter Parker. With that being my only complaint I cant put this over enough
Overall 4 out of 5 stars!
