he Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker getting bitten by a radioactive spider, get the superhuman qualities, see his uncle die, learn to use his power properly (positively) and find his sweetheart. Sounds like you know it all? Not quite. In this movie Peter gets a hint as to what might have happened to his parents. He gets to know that the his father was also working on the same lines which is now an integral part of Peter/The Spider Man.
This movie was bought to production after the cancellation of Spider-Man 4 in 2010. I was expecting something real big after hearing the names: Alvin Sargent, James Vanderbilt and Steve Kloves. For those of you who do not remember names but somehow remember the movie names (like me!) Mr. Sargent has demonstrated his talent in Unfaithful (2002), Spidernam 2 and 3 and Mr. Vanderbilt has been well appreciated for his work on Zodiac (2007). And of course we have Mr. Kloves whose work can be seen always in Harry Potter movies.
I really liked and enjoyed the work of Andrew Garfield over Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. But that is just me!
However, the movie do not have much of a punch as firstly the story is (too) well known and you can easily say which part(s) are not there in the actual. Secondly, you know what is going to happen next! I think the writers tried their best to give twists, here and there, but it did not do the trick. Sometimes it seems just too much as we know that Peter never demonstrated his powers openly however here in the movie we see Peter throwing a football so hard that it bends the pole!
The only thing that attracted me was the animations. Some of the action sequence were shot in New York and most of the 3D effects were done by 3ality. This is the company which gave us Underworld Awakening, Pirates of Caribbean 4 to name a few. True to its work, in this movie also, there are some sequences worth watching.
