Re: The Amazing Spider-Man Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

Unfortunately, poor overall.
Garfield had a few moments but looked too much like Robert Pattinson. His Spider-Man had a little too little sense of guilt/responsibility, it seemed too much like he was just adventuring for fun (although his initial exploration of his powers felt less exuberant than Maguire's).
Stone, Field Sheen did pretty well but May was too underused and I felt Ben criticizing Peter for "humiliating" Flash was excessive (Peter could have pointed out Flash had bullied a lot more people than just him).
Didn't like the conspiracy-like background of the parents or that it, Norman Osborn and J. Jonah Jameson were hinted at but didn't amount to much.
The Lizard being so unsympathetic was disappointing, although I could see they didn't want to do too much retreading of the film version of Doc Ock.
There were mechanical webshooters but not a hint that webfluid could run out or that he had spider sense.
Way too many scenes of Spidey without his mask, especially when there were significant complaints about it in 3.
