    Kind of expected to hate this, but actually ended up enjoying it. Some of the action was good, but the leads were what really saved it. Garfield and Stone were both great, and because the movie was so much about them, it worked. I'd like to see them work together in something that isn't a superhero film, frankly. Something where they can just joke and flirt and tease each other would be a lot of fun.

    As a huge fan of Raimi's trilogy, yes even the well hated third, I was cautious and skeptical about this reboot. That isn't to say that I wasn't excited about it though. I was very much looking forward to Mark Webb's take on the classic lore of such an awesome character. Off the bat, I preferred the casting and cinematography in this film to Raimi's, but I questioned if Webb (who gave us one of my all-time favorite romantic comedies…

    Everything about this is dumb. A dumb plot, and dumb side story, a dumb villain with an even dumber and unoriginal plan. Skip this.

    It’s hard to approach this movie on its own merits; it came out only ten years since Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man film, and only five years since his series was rounded off in Spider-Man 3. With these films still fresh in the consciousness, one can’t help but to approach this reboot with the forethought that it’s completely frivolous and unnecessary, especially since it covers some of the same ground as the first original Spider-Man film. Chances are that your decision…

    Going into this movie, after watching the famous “Sam Raimi” trilogy, I honestly had low expectations. The Raimi trilogy wasn’t at all amazing however it was good popcorn entertainment when each of the films were released. Ok, apart from Spider-Man 3 with the whole “Emo-Spidey” look, not good.

    Anyways back to this review. This adaption to the Spider-Man comics is one of a kind, I cannot wait for the sequel. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone take the leads as Peter…

    I actually liked this one better the second time around. Has plenty of problems -- unsatisfying villain, as is often the case in superhero movies; junk science, as is the case in almost any movie; poorly integrated "mythology" subplot that doesn't really serve its purpose of piquing interest but mostly annoys in both its obviousness and its half-assedness (does Irrfan Khan's Osborn lackey survive? How can you just drop a character from the movie like that with no resolution?); bizarre…

    Although I question the very existence of the film based purely on the fact that I feel five years is not a large enough passage of time to necessitate a reboot, it is a good film, however you look at it. It is a cinematic stunner, wonderfully created, with characters taking importance over chaos, however brilliantly awesome that chaos may be. The first half of the film does feel rushed, and some plot lines don't quite justify their inclusion, but it is full of wonderful moments that remind me why I like Spider-Man so much. Isn't that worth it in the end?

    This film really puzzled me when it came out in cinemas. A reboot to a series that was still fresh in my memory from not that long ago. I have a special place for the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man film, it was the first proper super-hero movie I watched and I was still a teenager at the time. I loved it! And it is fair to say that my currently of the Super-hero genre would not exist today if it…

    Teniendo en cuenta que en las películas de Spidey dirigidas por Raimi me daban ganas de matar a todos los protagonistas, que con la primera me salí del cine y con la segunda me quede dormido, esta sale ganando al menos en mi caso, me ha gustado la actuación de Andrew y en general me he entretenido, y aunque tenga sus momentos WTF y se haga hincapié en algunas cosas de forma innecesaria me ha parecido al menos un entretenimiento decente.
