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.

Brilliant Action Movie!By Hsquared (2 reviews) , 26 Jun 2013Fast paced, well acted, true super-hero stuff. Straight out of the comic books of my childhood. The background of how he became spiderman was excellent and (for a comic book) believable. Loved the action sequences - can't wait for the next one!
A great improvement!By a customer , 23 Jun 2013An enjoyable movie and a great improvement from the previous spiderman; definitely recommend to anyone. Only downside is some aspects of the story are repeated from the original spiderman, but doesn't stop this from being a great movie.
Give it a miss and save a couple of hours of your life!By a customer , 21 Jun 2013Oh dear!!! Do we really need any more Spiderman adaptations? And this was absolutely awful! Script right out of the gaming world, story dull, no heart or charm...
Good but we've all been here before!By a customer , 20 Jun 2013A very good spiderman film. Lots of action and special effects, fast paced and good character portrayal. The only thing I don't get is why reset the franchise so soon!!!
