All four Spider-Man films have filmed on the Universal Studios Hollywood back lot. Ironically symbolic of the series itself, portions of the back lot burned down on June 1, 2008, meaning that first three used the old back lot while this reboot uses the new back lot. See more »

The Amazing Spiderman is a reboot of the Sam Raimi Spiderman trilogy. A lot of people didn't like the third instalment in that trilogy, so they'll be very happy with this reboot.
The movie centres on Peter Parker(Andrew Garfield), a science nerd who gets bullied and fantasises over his dream girl. Peter has lived with his Uncle Ben(Martin Sheen) and Aunt May(Sally Field) ever since his parents mysteriously left, without telling him where they went. What starts out as an investigation into his parents leaving turns into Peter gaining spider like powers and climaxing in a dangerous fight against villain The Lizard(Rhys Ifans).
Considering he plays a character more than 10 years younger than him, Andrew Garfield gives an exceptional performance. His Peter Parker is much better than Tobey Maguire's by a mile. Emma Stone is fitting as Gwen Stacy, Peter's love interest. Other performances are good but never really good.
The action's fine and the visuals are quite cool, but the cgi for villain The Lizard could work better with some improvement.
This movie is a reboot well needed, and it works as well as it should do. It's a 9 out of 10
