The Amazing Spider-Man

Rated PG-13 136 minutes 2012

If only this prequel to Marvel’s never-ending superhero series had the same joie de vivre as The Avengers. But no. Young Peter Parker (puzzlingly cast British actor Andrew Garfield) gets bit by a mutant spider and gradually turns into the Spidey we all know and sometimes love, while tangling with mad scientist Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans, also looking bewildered to be here) and romancing creamy blond Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Aside from the thrilling fight scene in the sewer with Lizard Man, the movie maintains a somber tone that saps whatever energy director Marc Webb can inject into it. Screenplay by a web of writers led by James Vanderbilt. Costarring Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. (138 min.)
