The Amazing Spiderman: Movie Review by a Mississauga Chiropractor

Categories: Movie/TV Reviews

Here’s another review from a Mississauga Chiropractor…


 Just watched The Amazing Spiderman (2012) starring, Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Emma Stone (Zombieland) & Rhys Ifans (Knotting Hill)

Like most teenagers, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today.  He is living with his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) & Aunt May (Sally Field).  Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets.  As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father Richard Parker (Campbell Scott), he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys 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.

This movie was really well done.  Initially I thought that it was too soon to make another Spiderman origin movie after just going through the Tobie Maguire – Spiderman trilogy 10 years earlier, but this movie was totally different.  This version of Spiderman had a different twist.  Peter Parker was less geeky and had more of an attidude.  Rather than Mary Jane, we saw how Peter & Gwen Stacey`s relationship evolved.  Also, the Lizard was a new Spiderman Movie-Villain who we hadn`t seen before, rather than the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman & Venom.  There was the familiar spider bite and the new discovery of Spiderman`s spidey-senses in the film, as well as the traditional spider webs that he would use to swing from building to building across New York City.

Overall, I would give this film 9.5/10 stars… Definitely the best action movie I’ve seen this year so far.  Happy Viewing!
