Peter Parker (Garfield) is an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (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. Written by
When Dr. Connors becomes the lizard, he becomes far more massive than his human state, shredding his clothes - logically, this should leave him naked. Yet after his first transformation, he is seen in the sewer with a towel/robe on his body. See more »
This was the first "super hero" movie I have ever seen in theaters, and let me tell you - Spider Man is my new favorite super hero! The plot was amazing (no worries, no spoilers! If you want to know the story, watch it!) The acting was phenomenal - my friends and I significantly underestimated Andrew Garfield's performance before seeing the movie. I want to see it again and again and again - he is amazing as Peter Parker!!! Emma Stone is amazing as Gwen, and the other actors and actresses will blow you away!! (Martin Sheen was the one that surprised me the most!!!). Love this movie...if I could, I'd give it an 11...a must see!
