Peter Parker is an outcast high schooler 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.

The film may be flawed, but its message is not.

Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable

Upon first release I really enjoyed the movie, looking back I don't really like it as much. First of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone deliver the best performances in the film, Garfield has a love for the character and he and Stone's chemistry is wonderful. The action is also very well done, with cool swinging and fighting visual effects. Martin Sheen and Sally Field also make turn in great performances as Aunt May and Uncle Ben, so what's bad about it. Well the film has a strange Dark tone, of all comic-book superheroes Spider-Man is definitely not a hero who needs a dark tone movie, I know some comics have these great dark storylines, but it just doesn't feel right to me. The story is also just a retelling of the same one we got back in 2002, which isn't terrible it just doesn't add much new. Batman Begins and even Man Of Steel added much new elements and they were also reboots, so it makes me wonder why re-tell it. The Lizard is also one of my favorite Spider-Man villains, I've wanted to see him in a film for a long time, and while Rhys Ifans performance isn't bad, it's just very forgettable and quite bland, the lizard effects also look very computerized and it takes me out of the film sometimes, and finally the fight scenes, while actually really good, are in the worst settings. Sure the bridge scene is awesome, but the night-sewer fight and the big climactic battle, just don't feel as good as they could've been, and like I've said before setting all of the fights at night look very off putting. I don't mind some night fights, but there are literally no action scenes with Spider-Man during the day. All in all the film is fine, and if you like it that's okay, but for me personally, I prefer The Rami Trilogy and The MCU.

Great way to start off a new spider man franchise. Andrew and Emma are fantastic actors and shocked me with this movie. The writers are very creative and I have to say I loved the way they tried to make a different story with this series.

'The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)' promises the 'untold story' and yet gives us largely the same origin as before, oddly borrowing some specific elements that surely wouldn't be included if they hadn't been in the '2002' incarnation, while removing most of the connecting tissue between the events and thus severely reducing their impact. Peter Parker - here, a skate-boarding hipster who's idea of awkward is to talk too much but always manage to say the right thing - is bitten by a random spider, that isn't set up as being genetically modified, while visiting a lab and within a couple of scenes he is crawling about the walls with ease. It's almost like they couldn't be bothered to retell the origin story and so decided to rush through it, making the entire endeavour rather redundant as it's almost assumed you've seen the prior trilogy anyway. Even when the web-slinging action starts - which is well done for the most part and compounded by some believable visual effects - you just don't care. Plus, it doesn't help that the film is painfully generic, too, both in terms of the story-telling and the directing. At with least Raimi's trilogy, even when it was at it's worst it was still interesting. 5/10

I was deeply unhappy when I heard about the filming of The Amazing Spider-Man, I believe in original ideas and with something as broad as Spiderman at least giving it a decent length of time before "Rebooting".It was too soon, the quality of the McGuire trilogy is irrelevant it was simply too soon to be starting again. Yet another origin story, another introduction to Gwen, another uncle Ben death scene and another villian.Andrew Garfield is dull, he simply didn't cut it as Spiderman and I consider Emma Stone to be one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood so the newly reborn franchise wasn't off to a great start in my eyes.So at over two hours at least they gave the movie a chance to shine, alas it doesn't though it's not the complete train wreck I expected.In this outing (And origin) Parker takes on The Lizard played by the always excellent Rhys Ifans who is simply too good for this movie.It has its moments but for $230 million it damn well should have had considerably more.The Good:Crane scene was greatLizard looked decentDennis Leary & Rhys IfansThe Bad:I really don't like Andrew GarfieldWeak soundtrackWas simply too soon after the last "Reboot"Things I Learnt From This Movie:Some Lizards can grow limbs back at will...........at will!?Along with super powers spider bites also provide personalities
