Movie Review: The Amazing Spiderman

Couple of years ago, one of Marvel’s finest cartoons and franchise was brought to the big screen. We all welcomed Spiderman with  Tobey Maguire taking up the role of Peter Parker / Spiderman. 10 years and 3 movies later it was decide that Spiderman should be remade.

Amazing Spiderman goes back to the beginning to tell us the story of how Peter Parker and how he became the web slinging hero. In this tale, a little insight is given about Parker’s parents, how he got to grow up with Uncle Ben and Aunt May,  him trying to figure out who he his and how he got to be where he his, his first crush Gwen Stacy and with him facing the villan, the Green Lizard (lizards are green aren’t they :]Y ) a.k.a Dr. Curt Connors

This new installment and remake breeds and oozes originality and brings us to closer to the Peter Parker we grew up reading and watching. There’s a lot of creativity, we see the geeky Parker (who can’t talk to a lady properly X_X , as my friend said he needs more brains), and a whole lot more. The characters act their roles so well and i must say a lot of credit must go to the actors and actresses who played their roles well and made me enjoy this movie. The effects and fight scenes were okay though i have seen better. All in all, this is one remake that was worth making.


how he shoots out his web…. Creativity and Geekness 😀
