THE AMAZ­ING SPI­DER- MAN

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Movies 3 -

Due out: July 4

Stars: An­drew Garfield ( pic­tured), Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen

They say: Peter Parker in­ves­ti­gates why his par­ents dis­ap­peared when he was young. His search puts him on a col­li­sion course with Dr Curt Con­nors, his dad’s for­mer part­ner.

We say: Match­ing the high stan­dards of the first set of three is a tough ask.

Close up: Wind­ing the clock back so far means there’s no place for star Spidey- vil­lains like Green Goblin and Doc Ock. Now it’s the turn of Ifans as Dr Con­nors ( aka The Lizard) to put Peter Parker through his paces.

Wide shot: At 28 years of age, Bri­tish star Garfield ( who is best known for The So­cial Net­work) might strike some as a lit­tle old to be play­ing a char­ac­ter that’s still in high school.
