We all know the story when Peter Parker gets bitten by a genetic mutated spider and obtains certain abilities from it, like climbing walls. When Peter gives his father's secret research to Oscorp's leading head Dr. Curt Connors, who wants to regenerate an arm he'd lost, worse comes to worst and Connors mutates into a monstrous lizard, losing his mind in the process. The mad Doctor then threatens to turn the whole of NYC into "advanced species" like himself, and only "bug boy" Peter can stop him.
Loved it. Oh my God, I hated the movies with Tobey Maguire in the lead role for the most part. Andrew Garfield was incredibly cute as new, troubled Peter Parker (btw, I also thought his lanky figure was better suited for the role/character than Tobey's), and combined with Emma Stone as Gwen and a new script made the movie so much funnier. Not that it lacked action or emotion or sincerity, not a bit, yet it had a whole lot better feel to it. I can watch this a hundred times over, I swear. <3
