Synopsis:

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. When Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Based on the Marvel comic book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, The Amazing Spider-Man was directed by Marc Webb from the screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves, and a story by James Vanderbilt. Stan Lee, Kevin Feige and Michael Grillo served as executive producers, with Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach as producers.

    Thank you for your review! I have no doubt this movie will look amazing on Blu-ray, but I hear it has some major differences from the previously released Spider-man directed by Sam Raimi and it's awesome. The biggest difference I'm looking forward to is I always felt Tobey Maguire lacked the passion as Peter Parker and smart-alecky attitude of Spider-man. I have seen Andrew Garfield in a couple films, but nothing took my breath away more than his performance in Never Let Me Go. My friend and coworker from DISH also admires the talents of Andrew Garfield, especially in The Social Network. She's having a girl's night tomorrow to see The Amazing Spider-man, but I'm out of town helping my Mom who has some health problems. I have my laptop with me for work, so I can easily access DISH Online and rent The Amazing Spider-man, since my Mom has a Hopper from Dish then I'll still enjoy the movie with the gals, even though I'm away from home.

      just had to get this post on my birthday....wow

      anyways, I succeed at avoiding seeing this in the theater

      now comes the very hard part making sure my family doesn't watch this reboot at all

      thanks a lot Sony and Columbia and Marvel Studios for destroying the Spider-Man franchise with this damn reboot and ruining my future desire to see this character on the big screen ever again

            @the-crow2k: It had some cool parts in it, but yeah, it wasn't that great. I'll stick with Sam Raimi's trilogy, and Tobey Maguire will ALWAYS be Peter Parker/Spider-Man to me.

                I'm a fan of Spider-Man in general... and i love the Raimi trilogy.

                but this was not a Spider-Man film. It got the elements of it, but it failed every little one of them.

                    Why does Spider-Man look so animated onto the covers? I preferred the grittier look of the poster. And the 3D Blu-Ray case? I can't even...

                                  @ghostman I don't think special features are included on rented dvds. Last time I went to Blockbuster or redbox I got a crap load of previews and ads, but no special features just the movie. If you're lucky they've changed that.

                                    Definitely going in my Blu-ray Collection. A little bummed that there's no Digital Copy Included. I love being able to put them on my ipod and ipad. Oh well. Still a must own for me!

                                      I'll buy that! I enjoyed this movie a lot.I like it better though when they design a new picture for the DVD case than just the theatrical poster, like they did for the Blu Ray 3D edition... However I support DVD.

                                        I'll be sure to rent this just for the bonus features. I'm not that excited as @corey is to buy it.

                                          i bet the deleted scenes include none of the major stuff they cut out the film it sucks that they are not releasing a directors cut because they cut this movie to sh*t and even though i liked the movie i think i would have found the other version way more interesting or at least it sounded that way
