    The amazing Spider-Man has a few good things going for it: An improved performance by Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider, A better love interest in Gwen Stacy as played by Emma Stone, Better chemistry between the two of them, A stylish and slick look for the entire film and a surprisingly good score to accompany the climax.

    However, the bad's heavily out-way the good, as the film also has to contend with: Retelling the Origin Story just 10 years after…

    These days, it has to be said, not many are really all that into reboots or remakes at all but honestly, I am really all for them, I don't see much of a problem with them as I agree with some people on this view and that is if it's bad, you still have the original and if it's good, then GREAT! You have another good movie to put on your shelf.

    That's what I thought of this film, I…

    This was a better origin story I think than the Sam Raimi one.

    I liked Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, and I love Emma Stone so I had no problem with her being Gwen Stacy.


    Too bad this series means nothing now. NOTHING.

    With the new Spider-man movies that came out far too soon, Sony released yet another standard Spider-man movie, with Peter Parker looking more like a 30 year old versus a high school student, that's just one of some problems this movie has.

    Si no fuera porque nos cuenta algo que Sam Raimi ya nos contó de forma algo mejor, hablaríamos de la mejor película del personaje. Gastar tanto tiempo en volver a contar el origen de Spidey lastra la película, que se esfuerza demasiado en dejar una tábula rasa lo suficientemente distinta de la anterior versión. Aún con esto y alguna escena realmente estúpida, la película sale adelante tranquilamente, apoyada en estupendas interpretaciones, un tono realista en lo emocional pero fantasioso en…

    Garfield craps bigger than Maguire. And Stone is even better. Frankly I passed on this film when it came out - it just seemed so UNNECCESSARY. And in many ways it is...the origin plot is sometimes scene-for-scene with the Raimi version. But Webb (OMG, that NAME!) gives this version a far less cheesy edge...weird, right?....LESS cheesy...in a movie with a Lizardman for the villian. But it works. It's not exactly fresh or patriculary thrilling (except for a great bridge scene)…

    Staggeringly bad. Mawkish, trite, dull, forced, stupid and soul crushing.

    Despite never really being a huge fan of the superhero genre, Spider-Man is one of the few superheroes that actually intrigues and interests me. Admittedly, the extent of my existing Spidey-knowledge all comes from the 2002 outing with Tobey Maguire so I'm by no means an expert on the character and Sam Raimi instalment was always going to be it's comparison.

    For me, the best part of a superhero story is the origins of the character and so this is…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love Andrew Garfield's take on Spiderman. He's so wonderfully awkward but still has moments of confidence. I adore Peter Parker's friendship development with Flash and romantic development with Gwen. The ending of the film was very intriguing and lead well onto the next movie where they reveal more about Peter's parents.

    I quite enjoy this version and find it superior to Ramis first outing of Spiderman. It might not be as good as Spiderman 2, but still has quite a lot going for it. While the villain by Rhys Ifans is pretty weak very other performance holds a lot of wait. The chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is impeccable and Garfield has always portrayed a superior spiderman to Maquire's performance. It does have a pretty weak final act, but the rest of the origin story to me feels more organic and works on a level that I don't think the first rami spiderman does.
