Rating- 3.5 out of 4 stars
This film stays true to its title. I have seen all the spider-man films and wasn’t always that impressed which is why I did not have high hopes for this film. But, it blew me away and all I can say is, thank you Tobey Maguire for retiring. Many of you may disagree but I thought Andrew Garfield was amazing as just a regular high schooler and as a hero. What kind of stunk was the story since there wasn’t anything new. It was the same old story we all know. I disagree it’s the “untold story”, but they made up for that along the way.
Directed by Marc Webb (how perfect), the film follows the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), a science-kid still in high school who deals with getting picked on, his inability to talk to girls, the loss of his parents, and oh yeah, becoming a spider/superhero.
Parker is raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Since his parent’s disappearance, Parker continues to look for answers as to what happened to them. After coming across revealing info, he is led to Oscorp and Dr. Curt
, he’s the only spider I wouldn’t mind having crawl around.
P.S. Before you run out of the theatre, stick around during the credits, there’s something more you may want to see...
