Review: The Amazing Spiderman

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.

I walked into this movie expecting to be blown away, I really liked Andrew Garfield playing as Spiderman and I avoided watching any trailers because I didn’t want to ruin the story or surprises. I just got annoyed with Tobey Maguire after the second one, the guy just felt damn annoying and he was a prick. This story started out different, not exactly 100% like the story and both Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy are cooler characters and smarter, I like how we saw the nerdier side of Peter Parker, and Emma Stone turned out to be a really good fit for Gwen Stacy. Martin Sheen & Sally Fields as Uncle Ben and Aunt May couldn’t have been a better pic, they were veteran actors with a lot to give and this time they are a larger role to play which I liked. It told a good story and I loved Andrew Garfield as Spiderman because he even had a damn good sense of humor and looked like he had fun playing Spiderman too but there was just one thing that was missing to this movie. The bad guy just wasn’t bad enough, or the build up between them just wasn’t what I was expecting, and Oscorp felt to be a side note. I liked the movie, but I wanted to love it, I just wanted more out of it.
