The Amazing Spider-Man is a new chapter in the Spider-Man saga focused in the untold story of Peter Parker trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Based on a Marvel Comic book by Stan Lee and Steve Dikto, the story writers have paid attention to detail, there are few things that irritate me more in well produced movies than a ridicule storyline, fortunately the dialogue is very realistic and everything makes sense.
The Amazing Spider-Man is a true 3D film shot in 3-D at 5K resolution with Red Digital Cinema Camera Company’s RED Epic camera, the first time these cameras have been used to shoot a major studio motion picture, it was thanks to them that it was possible to mount the cameras on rigs that could fly to the air and run to the streets in a certain pace, it would have been much more difficult to do with bulky and heavy 3D cameras.
Using 3D was an excellent choice for a superhero film where acrobatics, wall crawling and fighting sequences are greatly enhanced, unlike others, this film will diminish its special effects on a 2D screen heightening the contrast with the 3D version if you have previously watched it, The Amazing Spider-Man 3D will leave you completely satisfied that this was what 3D was intended for and not a gimmick.
A highly recommend this movie, the casting is superb with a credible story line that is emotive, and mind blowing action scenes. There should be more like it coming up with the producer announcing that this was part of a trilogy exploring how Peter Parker was forged into Spider-Man.
