Big Budget Bonanza: The Amazing Spider Man

March 12, 2012

The Amazing Spider Man

A sarcastic Spiderman (Andrew Garfield)  battles the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) while he tries to woo Gwen Stacey (Emma Stone). The reason this film will be good is because of director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). In 500 Webb was able to create memorable characters while keeping the story fresh and timely. If he can make the Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey relationship interesting this movie will work perfectly.I’m also hoping he uses another Hall & Oates song to great effect.

I’m thinking this film will have great characters and decent action. Andrew Garfield was a great choice to play Spider Man. He will add a healthy dose of wimp becomes web slinging mayhem maker. He will also be able to handle the back story and teenage angst required in the role of Peter Parker.

Emma Stone will be predictably solid and Rhys Ifans is an inspired choice for a super villain. It would be amazing is the Lizard was wiry.

Why you should watch this: This film is a huge gamble that is hinging on director Marc Webb’s ability to mesh character with action. I think you should watch this to support the new wave of talented directors that are making waves in Hollywood.
