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
At one point in the film, Peter is wearing a "Ramones" T-Shirt. The Ramones recorded a notable cover of The Theme From Spider-Man (1967). See more »
After Dr. Connors injects himself with the serum for the first time, the effects of the transformation kick in very quickly. However, when it is tested on Freddie, the serum takes a very long time to take effect. This is also supported by the fact that a rat has less blood than a human, meaning that the transformation should have occurred almost instantly. See more »
My generations quintessential teenager life story, that is the iconic Spiderman
Many years ago, Stan Lee crafted a story with, perhaps the worlds most beloved superhero. Spiderman is the story of Peter Parkers life. It's the quintessential story capturing all essences of humanity, loss and life. A must for anyone human being to empathise with. The story of a teenager, not extremely social (who really), smart, bullied, has to suffer loss of family (his uncle) and is to be how you want to.
This interpretation of that beloved story is brilliant! The direction is brilliant, soundtrack is great in my opinion and Andrew Garfield makes a fantastic Peter Parker, and his performance is well complimented with all the other likable cast.
Even with it's drawbacks, the movie is great fun! :)
