Andrew Garfield breathes new life into this comic-book franchise, but it's still an overly familiar story.

Superior to the other Spiderman filmsBy tez4444 (1 review) from Farnborough , 04 Jul 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I think this reboot is far superior to the Sam Raimi take on Spiderman. For one thing Andrew Garfield IS spiderman. Its how Spiderman is in the comics. The sarcasm Spiderman has is all there, and although its different in some ways to the canon Spiderman origin its still a really great film. Although not a contender against Avengers or the Dark Knight Rises. Sequels will have greater potential though.
As a fan of the comics the directors should atleast try to keep to the characters. Spiderman without wit isnt Spiderman. I'm so glad they did reboot Spiderman. Why on earth do critics seem to think Sam Raimis take on Spiderman is any good? The films are full of flaws, the chinese girls rendition of spiderman theme anyone? I was hoping that Sam Raimi would capture the fun banter between Venom and Spidey. That proved to be a horrific dissapointment. Tobey Maguire is geek in a suit. No fun banter from the Spiderman we all know and love. Watching the Spiderman films and comparing them to the reboot is just painful.
This is a great film to all those that have lost faith in the Spiderman franchise. Well done Mark Webb! Now lets hope you can be bold enough to implement Carnage as the main villian in a future film. Cos that done right would be on level pegging with Avengers.

Pointless remake but worth watching.By tinfoil (2 reviews) , 14 May 2013Not that bad really. A carbon-copy to a certain extent, of the movies before it - Although I prefer this rebooted version tbh. I'm sure others will do too.
ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIE'S OF ALL TIME 9/10By GARGRX (3 reviews) , 10 May 2013+ FUN + EXCITING + DRAMATIC + SURPRISINGLY BETTER THAN I EXPECTED WHICH WAS ABOUT 7. 5/10 + SPIDER-MAN IS AS CHARISMATIC AS HE SHOULD BE + COULD BE THE START OF AN AMAZING DEFINITIVE FRANCHISE - NOT AS GOOD AS ( SPIDER-MAN 2002 9. 3/10 ) 2ND BEST SPIDER-MAN MOVIE AND ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIE'S OF ALL TIME 9/10
ANDRE GARFIELD IS SPIDERMANBy MCRSEVE (7 reviews) , 09 May 2013Andrew garfield is a brilliant Peter Parker and an even better Spiderman. Personally I thought the earlier Spiderman films were very poor. As a comic book hero, spiderman is a brilliant creation and a film about him should do credit to the comicbook now it does. This was a brilliant film throughly enjoyable and highly recommended

better than othersBy a customer , 09 May 2013what a brilliant film great acting and effects didnt think i would have enjoyed it as much cant wait for another
Quite a lot better than expectedBy IanStuart (10 reviews) , 09 May 2013I rented this in essence to see what the fuss was about, having not seen the Toby whatever his name is previous films. I was unexpectedly impressed. Garfield played an excellent role and Emma Stone was very convincing as Peter Parkers love interest, so much so i still find it hard to believe she is the same woman i saw just a few weeks earlier in The Help... The rest of the supporting cast were just as good, making this movie quite a lot better than i expected
