The Amazing Spider-Man
I am pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the film. The only thing that interested me from the trailers was his new fangled compact web shooters. It was not a perfect film but it gave me a more authentic Peter Parker than the previous films.
What I Loved:
The scientifically gifted Peter Parker: the film clearly and smoothly demonstrated throughout the film.
Eugene “Flash” Thompson had some depth… he wasn’t a one dimensional bully.
The introduction of Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker’s true love and intellectual equal: Emma Stone was a better fit in this role than Kirsten Dunst was as MJ.
The compact webshooters: I loved this design. It makes sense and wouldn’t mind if the comic Peter Parker refined his classics to this model.
The chemistry that Garfield and Stone had on screen, it didn’t feel wooden or forced like some other super hero romances.
Captain Stacey… I won’t say more to avoid spoilers
What Irked Me:
Curt Connors wasn’t a very interesting or compelling villain. He lacked a certain spark and his motivation wasn’t believable either.
The web fluids… I won’t say anymore to avoid spoilers.
