The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

A new Spider-Man?

I was sad that Sam Raimi's trilogy fell apart at the end.  But even Spider-Man 3 is better than this film.  The first half of this film is unbearably slow.  Andrew Garfield makes Peter Parker look like a total douche.  Sally Field and Martin Sheen are too recognizable from other work to be believable in their respective roles.  Once the action starts (about an hour into it) the film gets good.  But the first half fails to make an impression.  The stunts and effects are good, but overall, this film is a big waste of time.  It could have easily been 30 minutes shorter, and thus much better.

The Amazing Spider-Man just barely manages to get 2 out of 5 Poblanos!
