I found the plot interesting just like the first Spider-man movie plot (same as the first Spiderman outing (and the comics) but with a few changes that I liked).
My thoughts are this was good the first time I saw it but now after watching it again my thoughts have changed. Now my thoughts are it’s a decent Reboot of Spider-Man.
Good bits: the scene where Spider-Man rescues Crane dad’s son from a car on the Williamsburg Bridge.
They did Peter & Gwen relationship really well and the wed-spinning is done so much better than the Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2002-2007 film trilogy.
Bad bits: The CGI on the Lizard looks decent and he wears his famous comic-book lab suit for one scene. And the lighting is too dark and gritty to easily see.
The Characters of this Reboot Are Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man A teenager struggling to find his place in life ever since his parents disappeared when he was a child. A spider bites him on the back of his neck, giving him spider-powers. He becomes Spider-Man.
Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors / The Lizard One of Oscorp’s leading scientific minds who attempts to engineer a revolutionary regeneration serum to help regrow limbs and human tissue finds that something goes wrong and he is transformed into the monster known as the Lizard
I might recommend this one to a friend who loves spider-man.
