The Amazing Spider-Man had a few moments, but for the most part it was a big miss for me. The origin stuff felt redundant, but I knew that would be the case going in. I was really looking forward to seeing the Lizard, and unfortunately that's where the movie really falls apart. The look just did not work for me, I really wish they had stuck to the lab coat and jeans from the comics. Rhys Ifans is a fine actor, but his voice in Lizard form was completely off for the character... he could have at least emphasized the "S" sounds! And don't get me started on the Lizard's master plan... he wants to transform other people into lizards - and then what? I can't say I have much confidence that Electro with be any more faithful to the comics in the sequel.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a special announcement from Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues!
