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.

Pretty GoodBy a customer , 09 Jun 2013I'm not a massive fan of comic book films, mainly because they are overly long (as this film was), but I thought this was pretty good and superior to the previous spiderman films.
amazing spidermanBy deniedfiddys (5 reviews) , 05 Jun 2013Me and my son watch this movie i thought it was average compared to the original, great cgi and fight scenes just prefered the first spiderman.
Below averageBy elle-mimosa (2 reviews) , 31 May 2013Below average movie. The trilogy with T. McGuire took breaths away, and inevitably it was going to be very hard to reproduce such master piece. In my view, this movie doesn't achieve that, even with new super vilains. Sorry, a let down...
Amazing Spider Film Remake ReviewBy a customer , 30 May 2013I enjoyed this film very much I think that it is better than the orginal Spider-Man films. I love the actors in this they the two leads (Anderw Garfield and Emma Stone) looked like their characters had real sparks between them. Overall I think this film is good to watch if you are into films like Spider-Man and want to see something new.
Time I will never get back.By a customer , 29 May 2013In a new era of superhero films, The Amazing Spider-man feels like an old and tired exercise in corporate film-making. Spider-Man has never been so dull and annoying.
