Before filming, Rhys Ifans researched his role by meeting several real handicapped people (who have missing limbs). He also spent one month performing his daily activities using only his left hand - it includes tying a tie. There script has small snippet written where Connors ties a tie but it was not filmed as it was too time consuming. See more »
When Peter is reading on the house roof, reading Dr. Connors' book, we see a spelling mistake in the book. Instead of; "Where do we go from here..." It is spelled as "Were do we go from here..." See more »
The trilogy of the Spider-Man by Sam Raimi is very faithful to the comic book's hero from my childhood. "The Amazing Spider-Man" is not a bad movie, but is a fast-paced reinvention of the hero and therefore I was a little disappointed with the story.
Peter Parker is no longer the outcast nerd that is bullied by everyone at high-school and needs to work to support his beloved Aunt May. He dates Gwen and immediately discloses his identity to her. After discovering that he has superpowers, he immediately jumps from the top of a building in a reckless attitude. He does not also grieve the loss of his Uncle Ben. There are many other differences regarding the original Spider-Man.
The best that this film offers are the top-notch special effects that are very impressive. The story is only reasonable and I prefer Sam Raimi's movies. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "O Espetacular Homem-Aranha" ("The Spectacular Spider- Man")
