The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero. — (C) Sony

At 28, Garfield’s slightly older than Maguire was when he played Peter Parker in 2002, but his combination of fresh-faced innocence, nervous agitation and wry humor is immediately appealing. CNN
Webb applies a similar skillful touch to the development of the hero’s identity: owing a huge debt to Batman Year One, but rendering the final results much more organic and believable. The web-shooters receive similar treatment; Raimi’s organics are gone, but their incarnation here doesn’t ask us to believe that a high school student could devises an unprecedented chemical webbing in his bedroom.
