The Amazing Spiderman (2012)

By | 2012-11-17

Another reboot of the origins of Spiderman. It’s no where as good at the version with Tobey Maguire in 2002. The special effects are well done. The action is okay. It does have some interesting alternate scenes compared to the 2002 version, but it has no heart, and lacks many things that makes a good movie. That includes the lead not having the charisma that’s needed to pull this off. He doesn’t have the right look for Peter Parker, and isn’t a good enough actor for this part. And also didn’t feel the camera work on the live scenes was good enough for a big motion picture, which causes us to loose touch with the storey.

I was somewhat disappointed. I would have preferred to see another sequel with Tobey Maguire as a slightly older Peter Parker, and showing us what Spiderman would be like more mature, wiser and perhaps as a darker character.
