Story


"The Amazing Spider-Man" is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. 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 (Ifans), 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..sometimes dull and mostly uninspired, it's much less a satisfying reboot like "Batman Begins" than a pointless rehash in the mode of "Superman Returns"..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..a mostly slick, entertaining and emotionally involving recombination of fresh and familiar elements..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Variety]
“..a grittier webslinger saga, led by a Peter Parker with swagger and angst and a tone defined more by emotional resonance than wide-eyed wonder. It still has plenty of fizz..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]
