OUR REVIEW & RATING ★★★☆☆
The Amazing Spider-Man quotes are a fresh new spin with a balanced mix of slick entertainment, romance and action. Although the movie feels familiar it still manages to provide an interesting and fresh perspective. The casting of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man is spot on and he manages to deliver some of the best lines in the movie. The story itself transitions well on screen, although at times the script feels slightly unpolished.
Verdict: The story may not quite live up to the telling the untold story as the movie claims, but they give a good try of blending the action and providing the audience with an emotionally literate Spider-Man.
[movie opens with a 4 year-old Peter Parker playing hide and seek and looking for his father]
Peter Parker – age 4: Five, four, three, two, one. Ready or not, here I come.
Peter goes into his father’s study and sees that it has been tossed and gets scared
Peter Parker – age 4: Dad! Dad!
[Peter’s father enters looking concerned, he pulls out a drawer from his desk and removes a false bottom hiding a file, he takes the file, wipes off the equations on his blackboard, Peter’s mother’s carries Peter out of the office and as they leave we see a spider encased in glass on the desk]
[after taking Peter to his uncle Ben and Aunt May’s house]
Richard Parker: You’re gonna stay with your Aunt May and Uncle Ben for a little while.
Peter Parker – age 4: I wanna go with you.
[Richard kisses Peter, then Peter’s mother tenderly strokes Peter’s face as she cries and gives instructions to May]
Mary Parker: He doesn’t like crust on his sandwiches and he likes to sleep with a little light on at night.
Richard Parker: Come on.
[Peter’s father drags her away and just as they are about to leave]
Peter Parker – age 4: Dad?
Richard Parker: Be good.
[Richard turns and walks out of the house with Peter’s mother]
[we see Peter, now a teenager, putting up his photo of the debate team and as he’s doing this he gets hit in the head with a basketball thrown by the school bully, Flash Thompson, who laughs at Peter and tries to scare Peter before walking off, as Peter walks down the school hallway he gets approached by a student]
Hot Girl: Hey, it’s uh…Peter, right?
Peter Parker: Mm-hmm.
Hot Girl: I really like your photo’s.
Peter Parker: Oh, thanks.
Hot Girl: Uh..listen, are you busy Friday night?
Peter Parker: Uh…
[Peter looks speechless then shakes his head]
Hot Girl: Cool! Uh…can you take pictures of my boyfriend’s car. I just, you know, I really wanna frame a good one for his Birthday.
Peter Parker: That’s really nice of you. Wow, that’s such a nice thought. Um…yeah, I’ll have a look at the old uh…the old schedule.
Hot Girl: Okay.
[at lunch in the school yard, Peter sees Flash bullying another kid, shoving his face in his food, and all the other kids around him chanting along for the kid to eat the food]
Flash Thompson: Hey, Parker, come on! Get a picture of this, come on.
Peter Parker: I’m not gonna take a picture of this. Put him down, man. Put his down, man.
[to the kid]
Peter Parker: Don’t eat it. Don’t eat it.
Flash Thompson: Take the picture, Parker!
Peter Parker: Put him down, Flash.
Flash Thompson: Take a picture.
Peter Parker: Put him down! Eugene!
[the other students laugh, Flash drops the kid and suddenly punches Peter]
Flash Thompson: Come, on! Get up, Parker!
[Peter tries to hit Flash but Flash punches Peter in the stomach]
Flash Thompson: Get up! Come on! Come on!
[Flash kicks Peter in the stomach and Peter doubles up in pain]
Peter Parker: I’m still not taking the picture.
Flash Thompson: Stay down, Parker!
[Flash turns to the crowd of students and starts shouting]
Flash Thompson:Who wants one more! Huh? Huh?
[Gwen who was sitting on her own in the year, walks over and calmly intervenes]
Gwen Stacy: Flash! Flash, are we still on for after school today? My house, three thirty? I hope you’ve been doing your homework. Last time I was very disappointed in you.
Flash Thompson: Okay, listen…
Gwen Stacy: No, Flash, how about we go to class, hmm? How about it?
Flash Thompson: Whatever.
[the school bell rings, Flash turns and walks off, Gwen gives Peter a look before walking off, Peter then finds his camera which is broken]
[later in class, after the Flash bullying incident]
Gwen Stacy: I thought that was great, what you did back there. It was stupid, but it was great. You should probably go to the nurse, you might have a concussion. What’s your name?
Peter Parker: You don’t know my name?
Gwen Stacy: No, I know your name. I just wanna know if you know your name.
Peter Parker: Peter…Parker. Peter Parker.
Gwen Stacy: Okay, good.
[she smiles and turns her face from Peter, Peter gives a longing look]
Gwen Stacy: I’d still go to the nurse though.
Peter Parker: You’re Gwen, right?
Gwen Stacy: Gwen Stacy.
[later at home with his aunt, referring to his beat up looking face]
Aunt May: Oh, my God! What happened to your face?
Peter Parker: Oh, I’m alright. I just…I fell, skating. It’s alright.
[Peter’s uncle walks into the kitchen carrying a looking box]
Aunt May: Ben Parker, don’t you even think about leaving that filthy box in my kitchen.
Uncle Ben: These are my bowling trophies.
Aunt May: Oh, well, then by all means, please leave that filthy box in my kitchen.
Uncle Ben: What happened to you?
Aunt May: He fell. Why you kids ride those things, I’ll never know.
Uncle Ben: Cause it’s stupid and dangerous. Remember when we were stupid and dangerous?
Aunt May: No.
Uncle Ben: Trust me, we were.
Peter Parker: Good to know.
[referring to his uncle’s rolled up trousers and bare feet]
Peter Parker: Hey, where’s the flood?
Uncle Ben: Follow me, I’ll show you.
Peter Parker: You serious?
Uncle Ben: Yes!
[Peter follows his uncle to the basement]
[in the basement, showing Peter the flood]
Uncle Ben: I think it’s a condenser tray.
Peter Parker: No, too much water for the condenser tray or the heat exchange tubing. This has gotta be the filling.
Uncle Ben: That’s the only thing that makes sense then. Can you fix it?
Peter Parker: No, not tonight. I’ll go by the hardware store tomorrow.
Uncle Ben: Good deal. Meanwhile, put this on your face.
[he give Peter an ice pack]
Uncle Ben: How does the other guy look?
[Peter doesn’t reply]
Uncle Ben: Come on! I know a right cross when I see one. Yes or no? Or do I have to call somebody’s father?
Peter Parker: No, no.
Uncle Ben: I wouldn’t tell your Aunt May. I’d pity the poor kid who’d have to suffer her wrath.
[Peter’s uncle starts going back upstairs]
Uncle Ben: Hey, before you come up, see if there’s anything else worth saving.
Peter Parker: Yeah.
[as Peter looks around the basement he notices a leather briefcase that belonged to his father and takes it]
[after finding his father’s briefcase, he takes it to his room, he examines the briefcase further and finds a secret pocket that contains a folder of his father’s equations, the main equation is marked with the symbol of two zeros crossed with diagonal lines]
Peter Parker: What is this?
[reading from the notes in the file]
Peter Parker: Zero, zero, Decay Rate Algorithm.
[there’s a knock on his bedroom door]
Peter Parker: Yeah, one sec! One sec!
[Peter quickly hides the briefcase and unlocks his door]
Peter Parker: Come in.
Uncle Ben: You okay?
Peter Parker: Yeah, what’s up?
[referring to Peter’s father]
Peter Parker: Oh, my God! You look just like him.
[Peter takes off his glasses]
Uncle Ben: May I come in?
Peter Parker: Yeah.
Uncle Ben: Listen, um…I don’t have much education, you know, Peter. Hell, I stopped being able to help with your homework when you were ten. What I’m trying to say is, I know it’s been rough for you without your dad. And I know we don’t talk much about them.
Peter Parker: Yeah, it’s fine.
Uncle Ben: No, it is not alright. I wish I could change it, but I can’t.
Uncle Ben: Curt Connors, that’s the name of the guy in the picture with your dad. They worked together for years and they were close, but after that night we never him again. He never even called, not once. Go figure.
[referring to photo of Gwen that Peter has on his computer screen]
Uncle Ben: She’s pretty.
[as Peter’s uncle is about to leave Peter’s room]
Peter Parker: Uncle Ben?
Uncle Ben: Yeah?
Peter Parker: You’re a pretty great dad, alright?
[Peter’s uncle smiles]
[after Peter researches Connors online, he finds that he is working on cross-species genetics at OsCorp and Peter goes to OsCorp Tower]
Receptionist: Excuse me?
Peter Parker: What?
Receptionist: Can I help you?
Peter Parker: Oh, uh…I don’t know. I’m here…I’m here to see Dr. Connors.
Receptionist: Right. You’ll find yourself to the left.
[Peter looks at her blankly]
Receptionist: You are here for the internship?
Peter Parker: Yeah. Yeah.
Receptionist: Okay. You’ll find your badge to the left.
[Peter looks to the left and sees the name badges]
Peter Parker: Oh!
Receptionist: Are you having trouble finding yourself?
Peter Parker: No. I got it.
[he quickly picks up a badge for Rodrigo Guevara]
Receptionist: Okay, Mr. Guevara.
Peter Parker: Gracias.
[as Peter heads upstairs in OsCorp Tower he finds the group of interns gather and Gwen introducing herself to them]
Gwen Stacy: Welcome to OsCorp. My name is Gwen Stacy, I’m a senior at Midtown Science and I’m also head intern to Dr. Connors, so I’ll be with you for the duration of your visit. Where I go, you go. That’s the basic rule. If you remember that, all will be fine. If you forget that, then…
[at that moment we hear the real Rodrigo Guevara shouting his name as he’s being dragged away by security]
Gwen Stacy: Well, I guess I don’t need to tell you what happens if you forget that. Shall we.
[Peter tries to hide his face and stay in the back as Gwen gives the interns a tour of OsCorp]
[as Gwen takes the interns to a lab in OsCorp, with Peter hiding in the back of the group, Connors appears and addresses the interns]
Dr. Curt Connors: Welcome, my name is Dr. Curtis Connors. And yes, in case you’re wondering, I’m a southpaw.
[the interns laugh]
Dr. Curt Connors: I’m not a cripple, I’m a former scientist and I’m the world’s foremost authority on herpetology. That’s reptiles, for those of you who don’t know. But like the Parkinson’s patient who watches on in horror as her body slowly betrays her, or the man with macular degeneration whose eyes grow dimer each day, I long to fix myself. I want to create a world without weakness. Anyone care to venture a guess just how?
[one of the interns puts up their hand]
Dr. Curt Connors: Yes?
OsCorp Intern: Stem cells?
Dr. Curt Connors: Promising, but the solution I’m thinking of is more radical.
[the interns all look at each other]
Dr. Curt Connors: No one?
Peter Parker: Cross-species genetics.
[everyone turns and looks at Peter at the back of the group, Gwen looks at her list of intern names]
Peter Parker: A person gets Parkinson’s when the brain cells that produce dopamine start to disappear. But the zebrafish has the ability to regenerate cells on command. If you can somehow give this ability to the woman you’re talking about, that’s that. She’s…she’s curing herself.
OsCorp Intern: Yeah, you just have to look past the gills on her neck.
[the other interns laugh]
Dr. Curt Connors: And you are?
Gwen Stacy: He’s one of Midtown Science’s best and brightest.
Dr. Curt Connors: Really?
Gwen Stacy: Hmm. He’s second in his class.
Dr. Curt Connors: Oh.
Peter Parker: Second?
Gwen Stacy: Yeah.
Peter Parker: You sure about that?
Gwen Stacy: I’m pretty sure.
[at that moment Connors phone rings and he excuses himself and leaves the interns with Gwen]
[after Connors leaves, Peter tries to sneak away but Gwen stops him]
Gwen Stacy: Hi. How you doin’, Rodrigo?
[Peter looks at his badge and realizes that she’s referring to the name on his badge]
Peter Parker: Oh, yeah.
Gwen Stacy: What are you doing here?
Peter Parker: I work here. I don’t work here. I was gonna say…I was gonna say I work here, but I seems like in fact you work here. So you know that I don’t in fact work here.
Gwen Stacy: Are you following me?
Peter Parker: No, I’m not following…I’m not following you. No, I’m not. I had no idea worked here.
Gwen Stacy: Then why would you be here?
Peter Parker: I just snuck in because, I love science.
Gwen Stacy: You love science?
Peter Parker: I am passionate about it.
Gwen Stacy: So you snuck in. I have to lead this tour group.
Peter Parker: I know.
Gwen Stacy: So I’m gonna ask you more about this later. Do not get me in trouble.
Peter Parker: I promise you, I won’t.
Gwen Stacy: Stay with the group.
[as Gwen heads back to take the interns round the building, Peter tries to sneak off but bumps into Rajit Ratha, who drops a file that has the same double zero symbol that Peter saw in his father’s file]
[Peter follows Ratha to a lab which has the same symbol by the door, and watches as Ratha puts in the code for the door and remembers the code to sneak in once Ratha leaves, once inside the lab, Peter finds himself in a room full of spiders spinning super strong silk, he touches one of the strands and the machinery stops and suddenly drops a dozen spiders on Peter’s head, Peter brushes them off and the machinery starts working again]
Dr. Curt Connors: We received the results from the MRNA sequences, they were disappointing.
Rajit Ratha: So define disappointing.
Dr. Curt Connors: I’m at a dead end. It’s the Decay Rate Algorithm. But this is to be expected.
Rajit Ratha: Expected? You said you were close.
Dr. Curt Connors: We are close, but it’s gonna take time.
Rajit Ratha: He doesn’t have time. Norman Osborn is dying, Dr. Connors. Save him, or we’ll both lose our heads.
[as Peter goes back to rejoin the intern group, Gwen notices that he’d snuck off again]
Peter Parker: I…
Gwen Stacy: Give me the badge. Give it to me.
[Peter reluctantly takes the badge off, as he does this we one of the spider from the lab crawling on the back of Peter’s coat collar, Peter gives the badge back to Gwen]
Peter Parker: Sorry.
[as Gwen turns to leave, suddenly Peter is bit on the back of his neck by the spider]
[after getting bit by the spider, Peter’s leaves OsCorp and takes a ride on the subway and falls asleep, a thug seeing Peter asleep decides to balance a beer bottle on Peter’s forehead, when a drop of condensation touches Peter’s skin, he suddenly springs awake and lands on the subway car ceiling, hanging upside down and then falls down, then as the beer had spilled on the thug’s girlfriend she starts complaining]
Girl on Subway: Disgusting! Now I smell like beer!
Peter Parker: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to do that. I…I uh…I
[as Peter tries to apologize to her his hand sticks to her shirt]
Subway Guy: Get your hand off her!
Peter Parker: I’m trying…to get my hand…
[the thug gets angry and pushes Peter which tears his girlfriends shirt right off]
Subway Guy: Are you kidding?
Peter Parker: I’m sorry.
Subway Guy: Are you freaking kidding me?
[the thug gets angry and tries to attack Peter, but suddenly Peter is fast with incredible reflexes and moves so fast that the thug falls and hurts himself]
Peter Parker: I’m sorry! Oh, man, are you alright?
[Peter senses the other thugs moving to attack him and he quickly lifts his legs and knocks them out]
[after the subway incident, Peter runs home and sees his aunt and uncle waiting up for him]
Peter Parker: Hey, sorry, I’m late. I uh…
Aunt May: We were so worried!
Peter Parker: I know, I’m sorry. Watch…!
[suddenly Peter sees a fly and quickly captures it with his hand]
Aunt May: That’s a fly, Peter.
[Peter looks at the fly and then lets it go]
Peter Parker: Yeah. I’m so sorry I kept you guys up. I’m insensitive, I’m irresponsible. And I’m hungry!
[Peter goes into the kitchen and takes out a plate of food from the fridge and starts eating]
Aunt May: Is he okay?
Uncle Ben: I don’t think so.
[as he’s chomping down the food]
Peter Parker: This is…this is your meatloaf. This beats all other meatloafs!
Aunt May: Something is very wrong.
Uncle Ben: Yeah. Nobody likes your meatloaf.
[Peter’s aunt and uncle stare in shock as Peter empties the fridge and heads to his room, May catches one of the items as falls from his arm]
Peter Parker: I got it.
[to Ben as they watch Peter go upstairs]
Aunt May: He took the frozen macaroni and cheese!
Uncle Ben: I noticed that.
Aunt May: Why didn’t you tell me you didn’t like my meatloaf?
Uncle Ben: Um…
Aunt May: You could have said that to me thirty-seven years ago! How many meatloafs have I made for you?!
[in his room, Peter is sweating and touches the spider bite at the back of his neck, he pulls away a thread of silk from which the spider is still clinging onto, the next morning Peter wakes up and not realizing his own strength breaks his alarm clock and his bathroom sink as he tries to brush his teeth, as he heads back to his room he starts hearing the spider that’s crawling on his window, scared as what’s happening to him he starts to look up spider bites online, after which the keypads on his computer stick to his fingers]
[Peter goes to visit Connors at his home]
Peter Parker: Dr. Connors, uh…you don’t remember me. I uh…
Dr. Curt Connors: You’re the intern from the other day.
Peter Parker: Yeah, that’s right.
Dr. Curt Connors: I’m sure you’re a very nice young man, but this is a home. I’d ask you to make an appointment in my office.
[as Connors is about the shut the door]
Peter Parker: I’m Richard Parker’s son.
[Connors looks at Peter for a moment]
Dr. Curt Connors: Peter?
[as Connors pours coffee for them]
Dr. Curt Connors: I’m afraid I can’t help you much, Peter. I don’t know why they left or where they were going.
[Connors accidentally knocks down one of the coffee cups which Peter quickly catches]
Dr. Curt Connors: Good reflexes.
Peter Parker: Thank you.
[Peter passes Connors coffee up to him]
Dr. Curt Connors: Thank you.
Peter Parker: I read your book.
Dr. Curt Connors: Oh?
Peter Parker: Yeah. It’s something. So you really think its possible, cross-species genetics?
Dr. Curt Connors: Yes, of course. But for years your father and I were mocked for our theories, not just in the community at large, but at OsCorp as well. They called us mad scientists. And then your father bred the spider and everything changed. The results were beyond encouraging, they were spectacular. We were gonna change the live of millions, including my own. Then it was over. He…he was gone, took his research with him. And then I knew without him I…I…I was angry, so I stayed away from you and your family. And for that I’m truly sorry.
