    The Amazing Spider-Man

    The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

    Easily better than Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3 in not just effects, but also in story, character development, acting, and writing. The Lizard - the villain - is decent, but I don't really like his character design - I would have added more of a snout.Being a reboot we must ask how the movie is different. Well, Andrew Garfield is far superior to Tobey Maguire, Emma Stone is far better than Kirsten Dunst; I also like that Emma Stone actually does something in this movie instead of just being the person who needs to be saved. The movie is darker, but also funnier than Spider-Man. The way Peter becomes Spider-Man is also done better in this movie.The only two real problems: Some of the music is kind of out of place, and the story is similar to the 2002 Spider-Man - although I think the story is done better in this version.
