'The Amazing Spider-Man'
(Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, et al / R / 136 mins)
Overview: Typical teenager Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) embraces his incredible destiny after uncovering one of his father's most carefully guarded secrets as Columbia Pictures reboots the Spider-Man franchise with the help of director Mark Webb ((500) Days of Summer) and screenwriter James Vanderbilt (Zodiac).
Verdict: I saw 'The Amazing Spider-Man' last night and I really enjoyed it. The special effects were seamlessly integrated into the live action to the point where you can't tell the difference any more. The story was really good and I would go so far as to say that this is a much better adaptation of Spider-Man than the previous three movies with Toby Maquire.
The actors in this movie are what makes it such a great movie going experience. Garfield and Stone are a great duo together and just have breath taking chemistry on screen. All of the actors played their role to their best ability. The effects and action sequences were amazing and fun.
Knowing Hollywood, I'm sure there will be a sequel! Here's a tip...don't go running out of the theater right away when the credits start rolling. Give it a couple of minutes because there is more to see that many of the people who were running out of the theater last night missed. Enjoy!
