Movie Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ lives up to its name!
The ApunKaChoice movie review of The Amazing Spider-Man. During a recent interaction, a friend of mine said that Tobey Maguire has played the role of Spider-Man to such perfection in the past, that he has his name engraved all over the Spider-Man franchise; and people would certainly be unable to relate to Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man! To my dear friend, and all those who think like him (taking nothing away from Tobey Maguire), just one message: go and watch The Amazing Spider-Man!

Fans of the Spider-Man series have been kept waiting for the past five years to witness their favourite superhero on the big screen; and The Amazing Spider-Man has everything a Spidey fan (which includes me too) craves to see!

The film is still about Peter Parker, an introvert college guy, who loves photography! The Amazing Spider-Man sees Peter’s parents handing him over to his uncle and aunty, and vanishing thereafter! After quite some years, Peter discovers a bag of his father (who was a very secretive man), giving him a hope to find out the mystery about his parent’s absence from his life! With the help of a photograph found in this bag, Parker meets Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), and Ta-Da, the real show begins!

Having a runtime of about 135 minutes, The Amazing Spider-Man has no dull moments and is fast paced! The film has some really, really, humorous scenes too! On top of that, the film manages to tap on your emotions and make you feel that the whole setup is indeed novel, despite the fact that it was someone else who essayed the role of Spider-Man in the past!

Speaking of the performances, Andrew Garfield does complete justice to the role of Spider-Man! It is certainly not a cakewalk to step into someone else’s shoes, knowing that the shoes are indeed huge (read extremely popular) in size! Be it the geeky, introvert, socially outcast Peter Parker, or the superhero who throws webs in style, Garfield unquestionably gives us an outstanding performance!

Also, Parker’s love interest in the film, Emma Stone looks like a flower! Stone shares an amazing chemistry with Garfield, something which the couples out there will relate to and may even take a cue from! The antagonist of the film, Rhys Ifans, in accordance to the size of The Lizard’s body, makes a huge impact on you!

The Lizard is truly the strongest and toughest enemy Spider-Man has fought with, in the films so far! Did we miss something important? Yes, apart from being the strongest, The Lizard is the ugliest enemy too!

Being an Indian, how can we escape mentioning the role Irrfan Khan plays in the film? Irrfan does not have a blink-and-miss role, and clearly makes his presence felt in the first half of the film! It’s really cool to see our Bollywood stars making their mark in Hollywood as well!

Director Marc Webb (note the incidental surname) deserves to be lauded! The film has lived up to the stratospheric expectations and has proved that it was a correct decision by Sony Pictures to revive the franchise!

Seen in 3D, The Amazing Spider-Man offers some amazing action moments! If you are planning to watch the film (which we think after reading this review you must be), try and catch it in 3D! Still can’t get over a couple of moments where my mouth was agape, eyes all but popped out and heartbeat heavier as Spider-Man jumped off the skyscraper, only to land next to me (well, not really)!

Overall, The Amazing Spider-Man is a treat for the fans of Spider-Man, and for those who love superhero movies! We loved the film and would recommend that you get yourself trapped in Spidey’s web asap!
