Young British hero Andrew Garfield plays the legendary webslinger and his alter-ego Peter Parker as director Marc Webb offers a new spin on Stan Lee's comic-book creation. Emma Stone is his dream girl Gwen Stacy while Rhys Ifans plays Dr Curt Connors, the boffin whose pioneering research unfortunately turns him into a full-scale villain known as The Lizard. Focusing on Peter's struggle to control his new abilities while dealing with life in high school, this lively reboot pitches for a slightly more romantic audience than Sam Raimi's dark and geeky trilogy. But it still comes out swinging.
