DCRJ's Movie Reviews: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (2012)

We saw THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (2012) at the SM MOA IMAX this June 30, 2012. First of all, my positive take on the film is the charm and the great chemistry of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. Secondly, the 3D effects specially on the Imax screen is breathtaking. Thirdly, the story of Peter Parker is now detailed and intriguing. On the negative note, I got mixed feelings after watching the film. I felt that this reboot isn't needed because some plot points have already been told in the 2002 Spider-man starring Tobey Maguire. The characterization of Dr. Curt Connors (aka The Lizard) lacks sympathy and the weakest of all, it felt like the character was only there to fill the villain role. Andrew Garfield's portrayal as Peter Parker lacks the lightheartedness of a Tobey Maguire. Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey is charming but lacks the appeal of a Kristen Dunst (MJ Watson). The film is medium heavy on the drama but lacks the necessary humor to make the film enjoyable to watch. No memorable movie theme song too. The film has loopholes in its plot and the film-makers seems not to care by not weaving the script in cohesion. I can go on with the negatives for it outweighs the positive, in short I wasn't satisfied at all with this reboot because it's been done before. The film is uninspired and it only made me miss the Tobey Maguire version more. My ratings: 2 out of 5 Biscuits !
