The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)


After being bitten by a spider, a teenager gains special spider powers and uses them to fight crime on the streets and to battle a scientist who has transformed himself into a terrifying, destructive giant lizard.


Good. Much better than the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies. Wasn't exactly expecting to like it because there had been Spider-Man movies that came out not that long before. But it was good.
