The Amazing Spider-Man (Trailer) review

So, the teaser rubbed people the wrong way and Rhys Ifans made a spectacle of himself at SDCC last year: not exactly a great start for the Spider-Man reboot.

The full trailer? Look much more promising. Lots of great action, even a good Spidey-zinger (something desperately lacking from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy) and even some good blink-and-you miss'em moments with Dr. Curt Connors as THE LIZARD. All good. However, there's yet ANOTHER "unmasked in public" moment. Didn't we have this in Spider-Man 2? I thought the point of the reboot was to do new things with the wall-crawler. Also, I'm not digging the "emotionally disturbed" Peter Parker; couldn't we just have a socially awkward Pete, someone not comfortable with getting praise? Maybe the movie will be different, but that's what I saw.

Rating: * * * * of 5 (JUST ON THE TRAILER released 2/6/12)
