The first film to use RED's Epic series digital cameras. Originally, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) was going to be the first feature to use it but a delay at the start of the production instead gave this film the distinction. However, when shooting began in December 2010, the camera model was still in its prototype stages so an engineer from RED had to be on standby throughout the shoot for immediate technical assistance and support.

While The Lizard is attacking the bridge, Dr. Rajit Ratha's car is bumped and pushed diagonally to the side by another car. However, in the next shot from the inside of the car, it's clear that all of the cars are in a straight row, as if nothing had happened. See more »
A 2012 reboot of the original Sam Raimi spider man movies that I think is miles better. Andrew Garfield makes a better peter parker/spider man in my opinion he looked the part, had the right personality and acted it out perfectly where as Tobey Maguire I thought was too geeky and shy with not much personality.
unlike the original this movie stays completely true to the comic, his first love is Gwen Stacy played by the amazing Emma stone who is fantastic as always but in the original they had Mary Jane which is wrong because peter didn't meet Mary Jane until after, when peter starts turning into spider man he makes a web shooter out of cartridges but the original just had it coming out his wrists and the villain was the same in the comic being the lizard played by Rhys Ifans who did a fantastic job he played both personalities of good and bad superbly compared to the ridiculous green goblin who was just awful.
all the CGI and effects in this movie are faultless and top notch, they took total advantage of all the technology we have in this day and age and the whole movie was so well made and looked stunning, the design of spider mans costume was great, the camera work on the swinging through the city shots were superb and the lizard was scarily life like the whole entire movie makes the original look lame and outdated completely.
in conclusion only bother with the amazing spider man not the originals and look forward to the sequel in 2014.
