Review of the Movie The Amazing Spider Man in 100 Words or Less

           4 out of 5
Review by on July 3, 2012

This is an upgrade over the Sam Raimi Spider Man movies for a few of reasons. First and foremost, Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker is a major upgrade over Tobey Maguire. Parker is still portrayed as a bit of an outcast, but not as geeky as the Maguire representations of the character. Instead, we see a more confident personality with Garfield’s portrayal of the Parker. Another upgrade is Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane in the original series was just too much whining and drama than is needed. Finally, is that it follows the comic much more closely than the versions we have seen before making for a stronger movie overall.
