With Great Power comes Great Responsibility
This not only goes for Spiderman. It also extends to the producers and screen writers of this film. People you have a template to work from! You didn't have to change Spiderman's origin to put your own creative spin to the movie.
The inclusion of Peter's family was a great idea and could have replaced trying to re imagine Peter's high school relationships and experience's. Instead, the parents didn't even matter at all, they added nothing to the movie of any significance. The parents plus the high school crap made the film drag and drag for half the movie; another thing among many that was wrong, was Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Sally Fields and Martin Sheen are both great actors, I luv em both but they got casted to roles that were written completely wrong. Peter also never had enough time on screen being Spiderman. And why can't Spiderman keep his mask on, Damn! The Garfield guy was OK, not sarcastically funny at all, and kind of a drama queen but OK.
The animation guys and that team of folks did a hell of job on the look and feel of the movie. The Lizard was done superbly even though his head should have been more alligator than Killer Croc.
After the lizard premier I thought DC had lost their chance at putting Killer Croc in a movie, but that's a lie. Richard Dawson says..."DC gets to steal a chance at doing this right".
Emma Stone was renowned. Every frame that she showed up in helped hold the movie together. To bad it wasn't a movie about Gwen. The return of Spiderman's web shooters also helped. At the end, the movie tried to finish strong with action, fine swinging and a couple of action pauses. My crew still left the theater disappointed.With that being said.
We all went as a group to see the movie, and in consensus we ranked the movie on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. 5 being the highest. This movie gets
2 and a half stars
Even though Spiderman III almost destroyed the franchise, the Amazing Spiderman is only a hyped up forgettable nothing.
